Like I said, I am just walking down the street. I haven't worn sneakers since high school.

Off and on, I think.  They are a fairly old company, and are an example of a brand that was once decent but is now outsourced and gone to crap like many others.  I haven't seen a Goodyear-welted shoe from them in the last several years, though.  Perhaps I just overlooked it since I don't follow them, but I don't think so.

I went to look at some converse this afternoon. They are all made in Vietnam, or China and I left. Are there any simple sneakers made in America, or another first world country?

I like some of the Italian sneaker companies, but I don't want to spend $300+ on shoes to walk a few blocks to yoga. I don't mind spending a bit more on American made sneaks than the China ones though.

Superga sneakers are pretty simple, stylish and comfy (made in Vietnam)
