    I just received new pair of Allen Edmonds shoes and noticed something unusual: on the insole it says "Allen Edmonds Made in USA of Imported Materials"

    All my previously purchased AE shoes just said "Allen Edmonds Made in USA".

    Any idea what's the reason for change? I remember someone mentioned a salesman making remarks that AE manufacturers certain components in Mexico. I hope this is not the case here...

    Components definately can be made abroad and then assembled in the U.S. and still be called " MAde in the U.S.A". Personally, I could care less about where a product is made as long as it is made well.
