So I just read this posted in a review on SAC (Steep and Cheep).
Moved to Michicgan and Made in China
When I wondered about the new MADE IN CHINA tag on my chacos, this is what I was told by Chaco Help. Dear Chris, Last summer Chaco laid off the entire production crew and farmed out the last of our American made products to China. Over 100 people lost their jobs. On May 29 the rest of us will be laid off. Chaco has sold to Wolverine Worldwide. Nobody here was thrilled about moving to China. Nobody here was thrilled about Wolverine buying us. The man quoted in the article, Ed Wieland was let go since those articles were written. So now we are all being let go to join the swelling ranks of the unemployed. It seems as soon as we outsourced we went down the tubes. Wolverine will keep the Chaco label but the product will be made in China. Chaco will no longer be in Colorado but in Michigan.

Anyone know for sure if this is true?
