15 Excellent American Made Sandal Brands
If you’re looking for what sandals are made in the USA then you’ve come to the right place. I’ve researched and compiled this alphabetical list of men’s and women’s American made sandals both to help you find great sandals and help spotlight our local gear makers including a couple of my personal favorites, Bedrock Sandals and Okabashi.
Bedrock is quickly becoming a go to adventure sandal brand. They’ve also become my personal favorites. The Bedrock classic line is made Montana, while the Cairn line is assembled in the USA with imported materials. I didn’t expect the ultra-simple Cairn sandals to be so secure and comfortable but they actually rival my old Chacos while being significantly lighter. Their rugged vibram soles grip terrain well. I wore nothing but these sandals for 3 weeks in Thailand and was glad that I didn’t take any other footwear. Where to find them:

My Bedrock Sandals on Ton Sai Beach, Thailand
These are the original classic river running and adventure sandals. Chaco offers a cool personally customized line of sandals that are still made in Rockford, MI, USA. However, the majority of Chacos are now made overseas. Where to find them:
Keen makes water shoes that are well known for their toe protection and comfort. If your clumsy side expects to ding your toes into rocks, Keen’s are the obvious choice. Most Keen sandals and shoes are made overseas but the Evofit and Rialto shown here are built in Portland, Oregon, USA. Where to find them:
Luna Sandals makes some rugged soled, minimalist adventure sandals in Seattle, Washington. Beware many Luna sandals are now made overseas and not in the USA. Like Bedrock, Luna Sandals are becoming quite popular. Where to find them:

Okabashi makes fantastic sandals and flip flops for men and women. In fact, their Indigo Classics are my favorite flip flops ever and they’re ridiculously affordable at $21.99 per pair. The ergonomic footbed feels great and for some reason these flip flops refuse to smell bad and I’ve had mine for a few years! Thus they have earned American Gear Guide’s Best Buy Award.
