From the early days of selling arch supports to police officers and waiters, to our current research with world-class athletes in our Sports Research Lab, the body in and ways to improve movement and support the body in a wide range of sports and activities have always consumed New Balance.
New Balance made their first pair of running shoes in 1938 and holds the distinction as the only company that still manufactures athletic shoes in the USA. One out of every four pair of shoes that New Balance sells in the U.S. is made or assembled here. Where the domestic value is at least 70% we have labeled them “Made in the USA”—an increasingly vital consideration in personal choice and the global economy as well as fair trade practices.
New Balance purchases goods and services from over 38 U.S.-based suppliers who employ more than 5,000 U.S. workers and is a supplier for the US Military.
