With a hard to find size, you have to find your size. The universe of available shoes is much smaller than if you took a size 8. Finding US made shoes is not as important as finding a shoe that fits.

I sympathize with your gf. I wear size 10 1/2.

SO would have lost a few good pairs of boots were that size equation to work.

$275 for a pair of ordinary looking shoes? I really want to support American but can't they do better?

You get what you pay for. I pay roughly $450 for my boots, but they will , if taken care of properly, last the rest of my life...
