Since 2013, Carson Footwear has made minimally-designed, lightweight (9.5 oz) running shoes in the USA. Our shoes are built with a zero-drop, 10mm, polyurethane midsole/outsole with a light, flexible upper. We finish them off with a 5mm sockliner for ultimate comfort and added protection. All of our shoes are made to order by hand, with love, in beautiful Milwaukie, Oregon.
We believe running in minimal shoes will make your feet stronger and buying locally will make our country stronger.
We believe your run should not be about our shoes...RUN YOUR OWN RUN.
"I started Carson footwear because I wanted a neutral running shoe that I actually enjoyed running in. In my hunt for the perfect running shoe, what I saw was an industry that had been abandoned by the American entrepreneur. It seemed everybody was trying to build a more profitable shoe. I wanted to build a superior shoe using the best materials and artisans our great country already had to offer. Each shoe is carefully constructed by hand from start to finish by highly skilled shoemakers who help me deliver an exceptional product that is 100% made in the USA."
