The company makes 90% of its shoes in the U.S., Grangaard said, using foreign workers for shoes that require more handwork. Allen-Edmonds can't make these products in the U.S. and sell them at competitive prices, he said.
Shoes that require more handwork? What would that be -- the brogues?

According to the article, the boat shoes are made in the Dominican Republic as were many of our finest baseball players. They have a way with the leather!

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
