Allen Edmonds Shoes
Only 2% of shoes sold in America are actually made in America, but Allen Edmonds Shoes beats the odds. The company was founded in 1922 and describes itself as “the great American shoe company.” They have created a successful niche with highly popular, hand-stitched, high-end men’s classic baroque shoes. The shoes are custom fit to every customer, offering more sizes and widths than any other shoe company. They even recraft shoes sold in the 1970s and 80s for those who prefer vintage style. All of their footwear is made in Port Washington, Wisconsin.

Four years later the company established the new KitchenAid brand, and the mixer has been a top seller for over a century. The stand mixers, to this day, are produced in Greenville, Ohio. Their factory has even been declared one of the prettiest manufacturing plants thanks to the charming design and bright colors.
