If you consider yourself to be an all-American man or woman you might be interested in supporting companies who make their goods in the United States, rather than contracting overseas. Confidence in purchasing a high-quality product from your homeland is a great option to have, and there's a lot of companies with amazing American made work boots crafted right here in the good old USA.

Top Three American Made Work Boots

1. Thorgood

Thorgood boots are definitely at the top of the best American made work boots list. They're built to withstand any type of environment, including the great outdoors, as they are made of several layers of waterproof barriers and blood borne pathogen shields. They are made of high-quality leather, have slip-resistant and oil-resistant soles and lace hooks. 

2. Frye Arkansas

Frye Arkansas American made work boots. The three Frye Arkansas American made work boots for men all have a 1.75” heel. The two wedged wingtips are made out of 100 percent Nubuck and the Mid Leather, hence its name, is 100 percent leather. Each of the three has about a six-inch opening at the top to allow you to easily slide your foot in. Each one also has decent rawhide lacing.

3. Wolverine Tacomas

The Wolverine black Tacoma American made boots for men are made of 100 percent leather with a full upper grain for water proof. It also contains a shock absorbent sole and a removable foot bed cushion. The Wolverine brown leather hiker Tacoma boots for women also contain the removable sole and the removable cushion. 

Determine Your American Made Work Boots Size

If you're ordering your boots online, it is a good idea to measure your foot in order to get the best fit for yourself possible. Everyone knows that shoes that don’t fit are very uncomfortable and can leave much physical damage to the foot and other parts of the body. Union Boot Pro has a chart that shows the proper way to measure your feet as accurately as possible and of what size shoes that the different sizes of feet fit into.

Another method of determining which size shoe would probably fit you best is to check your closet to see if you already have any American made shoes. If you do, take that shoe’s size and cut it down by a half-for example if you have a size 11 Nike athletic shoes, take it down to about 10.5 for your work boots. Shoes that are manufactured in America tend to be a little bigger than shoes made in foreign lands. American made work boots for men tend to be especially wide.

Other Facts About American Made Work Boots

Some American made shoes are actually manufactured in specific states only. For example, AFBOOTS are made in Tennessee and Corcorans are made in Pennsylvania.

American work boots tend to be very upscale in their pricing. Their prices can range anywhere in between $100 and $800. However, they are worth every penny for their comfort and durability on the job. Especially if you work in a warehouse or outdoor job-such as repairing telephone lines-you want only the best comfort and strength in your shoes that you can afford within your budget.

Even though they are durable and strong, another advantage of American work boots is that they tend to be lightweight. This means that you shouldn’t have any trouble picking them up off the ground or walking in them. Again, when you are on the job, the last thing that we or you want is for you to have uncomfortable or painful feet.

Most work boots don’t even need to be “broken in” before they are worn for the first time and ready for some rough work. 

Happy shopping!
