Running Shoes Made in USA

Hersey has been making custom running shoes since 1982, but other companies are inching into this marketplace with products that range from New Balance 990’s to minimalist trail shoes and running sandals.

Carson Trail Running Shoes are not my style but must be popular because their website says “Due of overwhelming demand….” You better order right now… 

Hersey Custom Running Shoes as in made for your feet and not some global shoe company’s generic size.

New website under construction. Sign up for their mailing list to be informed when they are ready to take new orders!  

New Balance 990
 Made in USA Collection. I’ve never seriously thought of these as running shoes, but at the inaugural Vidalia Onion Run Half Marathon a guy was wearing a pair of 990’s.

SAS Pursuit R SAS is a brand you might want to look into if those off the shelf running shoes aren’t working for you. SAS is unique in that it makes this men’s running shoe shoe in 21 sizes and 4 widths! 

I tried on a pair at the SAS store near Town Center Mall. You could run in them.

Softstar minimal athletic running shoes Made in USA. Their RunAmoc line features zero-drop soles, flexible materials, high-quality leather, and a wide toe box for natural toe splay 

SOM for Sense of Motion. Hand made in Montrose, Colorado. I bought a pair of their Nutrail shoes. I’ve done some 5-milers, climbed Stone Mountain, even run a half marathon with the folks at the Atlanta Outdoor Club.

Running shoes? Photo of their new Nutrail Sport shoe.

Victory Sportswear is looking good but are these Sneakers or Running Shoes? Victory is part of Hersey and follows the same business plan. So don’t expect anyone to answer your phone calls or email. But you can get em now from upscale retailer Huckberry. 

Running Sandals

Earth Runner, Luna, Shamma (and possibly others) make running sandals. We may add these products to our listings of Running Shoes Made in USA. 

Running Bra / Sport Bra

On the other side of Running Shoes Made in USA, we decided to put this listing into a somewhat alphabetical order beginning with what the folks a BOA refer to as Performance Sports Bras. We talked about this in our April 2024 Post.

BG Green This company makes good products at a great price. BG Green’s 100% organic cotton Sports Bra features their signature 4-way organic stretch jersey, racerback style, branded elastic band, and printed label (tagless). It is 90% organic cotton, 10% spandex, Made in USA.

BOA Performance Sports Bra offers a complete support system that keeps you secure and comfortable on every run. Their bras are light weight with a scoop neck and racerback style for ventilation. BOA features comfortable shoulder straps and a supportive elastic underband disperses pressure and won’t dig in. Designed, Cut, Sewn in the USA

DFND The active elite sports bra is designed for all types of training and running. It features a racerback to strengthen posture. The compression sports bra is made with moisture-wicking breathable Ax circular knit fabric.

ETSY came up on our Search for Running Bras Made in USA. Roberto has a little shop in LA called Averta where they crank out organic cotton sports bras and put them on the market for $20 with Free Shipping. I don’t think this is a running bra, but he’s got 41 reviews and 3 bought in the last 24 hours.

Hard Tail Forever  You generally don’t see models with facials for running products, but here we are with Hard Tail’s Cross Workout Bra. It is 90% Cotton, 10% Lycra, Pre-Shrunk. The instructions are to hand or machine wash in cold water, use mild detergent, no bleach, tumble dry low.

Kioka Walmart has a Made in USA Sports Bra on their website with absolutely no information whatsoever about this product other than lots of color choices, size and price.

Nordstrom has 52 items in their Made in USA bra selection, but which ones were for running is beyond me. I mean the Solely Fit Movement Performance Sports Bra is nice, but you’re not seriously running in this are you? Best ask that question to one of their sales associates. 

Ragged Mountain Power Sports Bra is made from Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™ for maximum performance and comfort. Smooth, flatlock seams and a wicked soft inside will make this your favorite bra or sports top for serious outdoor activity. You’ll love the top-notch breathability and wicking action, and the racerback styling doesn’t hurt either.  

RUSEEN distributes reflective products some of which are made in USA. This reflective sports bra is completely designed, sublimated, cut, sewn & the reflective is applied right here in Berks County Pennsylvania! 


Sporteze Our cupless bras are available in white, black and tan in both pullover and zip styles. Founded in 1992, we originally created our soft, Sporteze Sport Bra to serve the needs of equestrians. As the #1 selling sport bra in the equestrian market, we expanded into other areas, including running, gymnastics, biking, and much more. 


Tracksmith developed the Allston Bra for long-distance storage. At the 2020 Marathon Trials in Atlanta, a number of women donned the pocket bra under their singlets for added storage for their fuel. We like this product line, but we’ve learned it is not Made in USA. 


WSI Is a company long known for making cold weather gear. But here they are with a high impact performance sports bra Made in USA. What we noticed in our most recent review was an expanded offering of styles and colors.


Zensah Seamless Running Sports Bra provides ultimate comfort and performance for runners and athletes. Through its innovative technology and proprietary Zensah fiber composition and high-quality seamless construction, this is the ideal bra for marathoners, ultrarunners and more. With 1000s of 5 star reviews, it’s no wonder why this sports bra was named one of the Best Bras by Runner’s World. Sports Bra Made in USA. Other products may not …  


Base Layers Made in USA

Corbeaux designs groundbreaking base layers for outdoor adventurists seeking sustainable apparel.

Colorado-based Corbeaux makes fashion-forward and high-performance next-to-skin apparel for all of your athletic pursuits from snow sports to trail running and everything in between.

Made in USA. Being allergic to wool, we needed to find alternative materials. We bring a soft feel to our uniquely designed styles with quick-drying, fast-wicking, temperature-regulating fabrics.

Duckworth Montana Wool. we counted 16 base layer items on their men’s page with comments like ‘Great for running’ under their Maverick Tee.

Beverly and I bought a pair before the Berry Half Marathon up in Rome. They definitely kept the chill out…

Polartec Military Issue. Growing up we always dropped by the local Army Navy store for outdoor stuff, so seeing this on Love List was not a big surprise. Just make sure you understand their 1-2-3 levels of cold. 

Voormi High performance wicking yarns keep you dry and comfortable throughout the day.

Voormi Tees and Tanks deliver an unprecedented level of warm-weather comfort and all-season performance in a sun-shielding, lightweight construction. Note (3) levels in this high-performance product line: lightweights, midweights, all-weather.

Caps Visors and Headbands Made in USA

Aero Tech Headband Ti Sweatband girly girl

Aerotech Designs is a cycle wear company, and they’re offering a Tie Sweat Band in lots of Colors that will keep the sweat out of your face.

Why? “My training partner and I simply got tired of stinging, burning sweat dripping into our eyes and on our glasses while we were training, racing and working out.”

Bondiband claims to be the original no drip, no slip performance wicking headband. 

Bondiband uses stretchy, breathable material that allows their headbands to fit virtually every head size and shape. They can be worn indoors, in warm weather, or outdoors in colder weather.

Some runners use them to keep ears warm or hair back. 

ETSY claims to the place for Hand Made, Unique, and Custom, so we went shopping for folks who were actually making them and not just hawking stuff Made in China.

HomeMadebyBB has a review from Amber who ran a Half Marathon in one of hers and another reviewer who jumped in a pool to see if it would stay on.

BB’s got a Bible Verse from Hebrews encouraging you to Run with Endurance, but she does custom stuff as well..  

Halo Headband is a high quality sweatband manufacturer located in San Diego, California. Since 2001, Halo Headband has been producing hand-crafted, high performance headwear using the best fabrics and sewing techniques available. Designed for both men and women, we created a proven sweat control system that redirects sweat away from your eyes. 

I compete in their Halo Race Visor. To the best of my knowledge, all of their products are Made in USA except the Halo Sports Visor.


Imperial makes caps and visors…in my opinion more for golfers than runners. We asked for a running cap and this is what we got: 

The Running 12’s – Adjustable Performance Cap is part of our collaboration with the GCSAA to offer this limited edition collection of headwear. A portion of  the proceeds from this collection will be donated back to the GCSAA Foundation…a golf charity.

FYI You can personalize this cap… personally I’d be embrassed to wear this one….


Junk. According to their website: They are the Number one running headband.

Junk has thousands of designs…. everything from your college alma mater to Marvel. Junk Headbands keep the sweat out of your eyes and stays in place, so there’s one less thing to worry about while performing your best in the sun. They are Non-Slip, sweat-wicking, lightweight and comfortable.


Kavu Trail Running Caps when you want to look oh so outdoorsy.

This is where it all began. In 1991 Barry Barr was running a fishing boat off the wet and windy Alaskan coast. A gust blew his hat off his head and sent it into the drink. This would be the last time this happened to Barry because he had an idea: make a better hat. Fast forward nearly 30 years and this beauty is still hand cut and hand sewn in Seattle by the same family.

We found Razzy Roo all over the internet, but not from people I’d be willing to give my charge card information to.

Razzy Roo is closed for the Season…what Season?

SweatHawg Headbands keep sweat from burning eyes and smearing glasses.  A single layer of ultra absorbent brow material is wrapped in an ultra wicking hygienic bamboo fabric. Together these engineered fabrics absorb, disperse, and evaporate to stop dripping perspiration. Evaporation cools.  Hot sweaty people love that!

FYI Veostrip is a strip that athletes wear under their visor, cap, or helmet.

Ultra Sportwear Ultra Tie Headbands are Made In USA, and their selection of styles is impressive.

They feature an elastic tie and are Machine Washable, Quick Drying, Moisture Wicking with 4-Way Stretch and a Never Fade Print.

You’ll find this product on websites like Ultra Sportswear, Tribe Lacrosse and others, but BBB has some complaints.

Union Wear makes caps for the US Military and a number of high end retailers. They appear to be really nice quality when compared to some of the stuff I’ve seen from you know where. 

I ran a half marathon in Savannah in a fitted wool baseball cap when it was cold, raining, and I wanted something to help me keep my rain gear in place and the water out of my eyes.

Pants and Shorts Made in USA

Aero Tech Designs is a long term maker of everything for bicyclists. But I got the triathlon bug years ago and I swim bike run in their Classic Triathlon Pants.
