New Balance: Sprint into Summer
New Balance footwear was founded in 1906 by William J. Riley. The company was originally known as the “New Balance Arch Support Company,” but is known to many today as “New Balance Athletic Shoe Inc."
Headquartered in Boston, the company has made a big manufacturing footprint here in the U.S. with some chains in the U.K.
New Balance are recognized for certain features that make them unique and worth the price.
New Balance continues to maintain a Made-in-America line, with two factories in Massachusetts and three in Maine:
“In 2013, 1 out of every 4 pairs of shoes we sold in the USA was made or assembled here. Where the domestic value is at least 70%, we label our shoes "Made in the USA."
"Approximately 25% of the New Balance shoes sold in North America are Made in the USA and we will continue domestic manufacturing."
