I think most of the major ones you see in stores are probably produced in sweatshops. If the label says “made in the US” the chances are better that they’re not sweatshop, although sometimes even that isn’t a guarantee. (Clothing can be partially made in other countries but finished in the US, etc. There are a lot of tricks to allow companies to use that label while employing sweatshop labor either in the US or abroad.) Here’s a page with a list of manufacturers who produce sweatshop free shoes.
I would agree with the above statement. But to focus on one brand, Nike has been known to have cruel practices in their sweatshops in Vietnam. The average Nike worker in Vietnam earns around $600 a year.
