Capps Shoe Company, Lynchburg, VA
Several months ago I received the following email from Capps Shoe Company explaining, in detail, the types of shoes they make, who they make them for and their committment to keeping their manufacturing in the United States…

“We are a locally owned Virginia Company, manufacturers of TRUE U.S.A. made shoes. We use American made components, AND assemble them, all in the U.S.A. by American citizens.

Our Brands include JOHANSEN, PARADISE KITTENS, NATURAL BRIDGE, and AIRLITE.

OKA b. – Shoes That Love You, Buford, GA
I’ve owned several pairs of their flip flops, I liked them.  They only lasted about two years then they cracked, but they are not made to last a long time.  When they can no longer be worn you just send them back, recycle and buy another pair, they are inexpensive.  The shoes are made out of unique Microplast material, they are also Vegan.  It says on the website that you can throw their shoes in the dishwasher.  How can anything you can throw in the dishwasher be bad?

Original, interchangeable shoes.  Very interesting concept here…purchase the sole and choose from hundreds of interchangeable tops, I might have to try these myself. :-)

Footwear by Footskins, Spring Grove, MN
I bought a pair of their deerskin slippers for my boyfriend so I can attest first hand to the care and craftsmanship of their work.  The slippers are “like butta,” and the workmanship is superb.  The quality you use to get from American companies that have since shipped their manufacturing offshore, you can still get right here from Footwear by Footskins.  Their line of products includes, moccasins, boots, shoes, slippers, and handbags.
