Merrell is owned by a company in the USA, but the shoes are made in China. I used to buy Merrells and loved them. They kept changing models, though, and I started having issues with them fitting right. I would find a model I loved and they would stop making it. Friend stopped buying them because they were no longer holding up for heavy use.
Last time I grabbed footwear for training I tried a new brand called Ecco. They are very expensive, but have held up better than any of the Merrells I bought. I tend to be very hard on shoes and these have not broken down like many previous brands I have purchased. Only complaint is they are not as waterproof (Gortex) as they were when I first bought them.
I will have to look into the Keen.
