WHAT DOES MADE IN THE USA MEAN?
SOM Footwear is proud to manufacture all of our shoes in the USA. Manufacturing shoes in America can be a difficult journey at times, but the founders of SOM Footwear are committed to keeping our factory, employees, and business here in the USA.
We design, cut, sew, shape, lace & box every pair of SOMs under one factory roof in Colorado.
By being directly involved with every step of our shoe production, our great local team works hard to ensure that each customer receives the best sneaker we can produce.
Manufacturing SOMs responsibly is also important to us. We look to source our materials from as close to home as possible and take care to minimize waste in addition to reusing scrap materials. If you have any suggestions for suppliers or partnerships, please get in touch. The fabric we use to make our uppers is too often from overseas but we keep searching regularly.
We want to make it as easy as possible to support other Made in USA businesses. We've gathered some information on the Made in America label and what it really means. Our list of resources can also help you find other great products made domestically. Feel free to share your personal favorites!
