Please read the following quote from the Allen Edmonds wiki page "Dominican Republic manufacturing
In 2006, concerned with rising manufacturing costs and looking to compete more directly with the boat shoe and handsewn market, Allen Edmonds made the decision to discontinue their Lewiston, Maine manufacturing and moved the handsewn production to their new, company owned, factory in the Dominican Republic. Currently shoe uppers for the Allen Edmonds handsewn collection are cut and sewn in the Dominican Republic . The raw materials are sent there from the U.S., where the uppers are sewn together, then shipped back to the factory in Port Washington, Wisconsin, to complete their construction, thus allowing them to be considered "Made in the USA." Alternatively, styles from the ae by Allen Edmonds collection are produced entirely in and sold as Made in the Dominican Republic. In addition to their handsewn collection, Allen Edmonds also utilizes the Dominican Republic factory to cut and sew the uppers of their Goodyear welted collection of shoes. Similar to the "American Made" handsewns, these welted uppers are shipped back to the factory in Wisconsin where the remainder of the lasting, welting and soling are completed."
According to the wiki of Allen Edmonds the uppers are sewn in Dominican Republic.
I'm not going to get super involved in this, because quite frankly it isn't my job or responsibility to do so, but large portions of that aren't accurate or are severely over simplified.
