61. This was an interesting post to read, as I sit here in my $80 American
made New Balance walking shoes. And vegan, to boot! I debated whether to wear these today, or the Keds I bought at the hospital auxiliary resale shop. They may have been made in China, but I didn't directly award the manufacturer for that choice, and my purchase benefitted a non-profit. Got 'em home, tossed in the washer, and they're like new.

As the weather warms up, I'll begin wearing my Okabashi sandals, made in the US of 15% recycled plastic, returnable to the manufacturer for recycling when they're too worn to wear 'em, and they cost all of $14.99.

So, yeah, I can see why the First Lade just HAD to wear $540 ugly tennis shoes, that probably weren't made in this country. She had no choice.
