New Balance makes over 4 million pairs of athletic shoes in the US every year — more than any other sneaker brand in the US. It has five manufacturing plants between Massachusetts and Maine, where skilled workers transform raw materials into quality shoes. And many of the materials that go into New Balance shoes were also produced in the US, supporting over 7,000 domestic jobs in the making of your shiny new soles.
Note: The Made in US label on New Balance shoes means at least 70% of the shoe was put together in the states.
