    I bought some Redwing boots and noticed that they were made in China. Pretty soon the only things made in America will just be stuff that can't shipped cheaply like toilet paper and sheet rock.

    They were on clearance at ace hardware for 69 bucks. 72 with tax. I did not get to shafted but was pretty disapointed to find Chairman Mao's stamp of approval.

    Good to hear you didn't get too shafted.

    I hear most Redwings are $200+. I'd be pissed if I paid that much, only to find they were made in China.

    I can't think of many shoes that aren't made overseas nowadays.

    Chippewa is the same.

    There are American made chips and Chinese made chips.

    You need to look before you leap.

    That's a great price for the Chinese version if it makes you feel any better.
