Athletic shoes made in the USA are often difficult to locate in a store but much easier online of course. The American made athletic shoes industry is one of those sectors hit hardest by cheap foreign imports. The leaders in this industry spend far more money on endorsements and marketing while spending record lows for production. They of course have very high cost in terms of celebrity endorsements and marketing as opposed to living wages for workers. The hard pill to sallow here is the fact that most of these companies are American although they make nothing in America. Sure they have their fancy corporate offices here where they dole out huge sums of money to a few elite athletes and colleges while paying the people that make the products pennies a day. Some of the top executives at these companies rank as some of the wealthiest people in the world. Another very sad aspect of this story is the USA is one of the largest consumers of these products. Does one really need to pay a celebrity a hundred million dollars or more to sell shoes made for $10.00 or less? The world has turned upside down. If we only buy athletic shoes made in the USA maybe they will get the hint and bring production home to America.
