Do you own shoes made in the U.S.?
“I think so, but I’m not positive.”

Perception of products made here: “They’re probably better quality, I’d assume.”

Would you pay more for U.S.-produced footwear? “Yes. I don’t agree with child labor, so if [shoes] are being manufactured in a different country that supports that, I wouldn’t feel good about myself.”
