Made in the U.S.A. shoes

american made shoes

Here are some shoes I've been looking at, all made here in the U.S.

I already decided on Cydwoqs, pretty much since my Shoegasm! post back in April. They're not cheap...okay, they're hella expensive*, so it's been a matter of distilling which shoes to try and where to buy them.

The Cydwoq site itself, naturally, has the widest selection, but shoes bought there are made to order, a sword cutting both ways.

On the one hand, you can choose exactly which colors and leathers you want for your shoes. On the other, returns are difficult; I think they'll try to get your shoes to work for you, but unless you've managed to try on the shoes in a b & m shop first, it's a bit hit or miss.

So, lacking the opportunity to try before buying, an etailer would appear to be the best bet. Of the ones I've found, Ped has the largest range of Cydwoqs (correct me if I'm wrong) outside of Canada's Gravity Pope.

I do check Ebay periodically, but the odds of them carrying the exact shoe I want in my size...meh...and Ebay isn't that cheap, and most of the sales are final.

Which Cydwoqs to get? Oh, that's not written in stone (hence the idea of PSD'ing them). And I am planning to head out to the few stores around here that carry them, first. Still I fancy "Carry" (top left, in two shades of dark green) and "Gate" (top center and right, in dark brown and crocodile-textured brown).

* Still they don't fall under "luxury pricing."
