May be a pipe dream but looking for made in USA men's shoes in the $150 or less price range. I am looking for loafers/boat/slip on style shoes. I've found some stuff that is made in the USA such as Alden, Allen Edmond or Red Wing, but those are too expensive.

Red Wing has an Irish Setter line which at least one shoe uses made in USA leather for $150.

Anyone have any brands they know of that is made in the USA for less than $150 in the loafer/boat/slip on style?

If you're open to factory seconds, Allen Edmonds has their ShoeBank. A quick look and there's some loafer/boat shoe styles available at $149 that are made in the USA. Gotta look closely though, not all of the shoes listed are made in the USA.

I was about to say the same thing. SAS popped up in my searches as well. I'm not as familiar with the brand, but they advertise that they're made in the USA and are closer to your price range. https://sasshoes.com/mens-decksider-new-briar

Neil M. used to be US made, but I haven't bought a pair in a few years (they last a LONG time, too).

It depends on the shoe model.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Look at postal shoes websites, they are made in the USA. I have bought made in USA Rocky postal shoes at the outlet store in Nelsonville, OH.

. I have a pair of NeilM dress shoes. Best fit and comfort I have found in a shoe in years.

David Letterman always has some sharp looking loafers on. I wonder which brand they are.

Yep, I've been an SAS customer since I found them ~20 years ago. A good shoe, comfortable, lightweight but durable, and made in the USA (Texas, obviously). They have a sneaker offering too, similar to New Balance.

This is what I buy. They make the old Knapp shoe, but they can't use the name, none better. I usually buy #2565 6″ Moc Toe Boot
$169.99 or #2573 – 6″ Natural Shaped Boots
$169.99

https://kqshoes.com/shopping/2565-6-moc-toe-boot/
https://kqshoes.com/shopping/2573-6-natural-shaped-boots/

They last me a few years. Extremely hard use, about one year.
