PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. - Port Washington-based Allen Edmonds is expanding into a new country.

The shoe company opened its first store in China last week. 

They're selling hand-crafted shoes to China's growing upper class.

Allen-Edmonds is one of the last shoe-makers keeping jobs at home CEO Paul Grangaard explains.

The company had record sales last year. 

It's hoping to add new stores in Asia and Europe.
