Shoes Please

When you are a designer and manufacturer of quality American made clothing, your shopping habits change. How can I support made-in-China (or Bangladesh) crap when I feel so passionate about creating garments in appropriate living conditions-? I can't. 

Let's all form communities with a trade based economy! (Although I have once made a pair of shoes..) I am not capable of making the array of shoes I need (want) in my life. Does any one else experience this? Lets trade.
