I refused to by "made in China" only to have them last a year. The last pair that I had that were decent were made in France. I still wore them, although the cork sole is cracked and the leather strap between one toe is disattached from the sole. They were a gift on Mother's day about 3 years ago. I thought they should've held up for longer.
So, if you're looking for a leather, quality, made in the USA, supportive sandal...look no further!
