New Balance began as a Boston-based arch manufacturer in 1906 and has grown to become one of the global leaders in the athletic industry. New Balance is committed to producing quality footwear and athletic apparel to fit all athletes. New Balance is proud to be the only major company still making athletic footwear in the United States. In fact, one out of every four shoes New Balance sells in the United States is proudly made or assembled here by our 1,300 American workers. Where the domestic value is at least 70%, we have labeled the shoe "Made in USA."
