New Balance just may have snuck their way into the military with the help of the Department of Defense. In a nutshell the Berry Amendment requires the Pentagon to buy certain products from US companies. The list of products includes food, clothing and shoes as well which new military recruits will be given a cash allowance to shop for the compliant items. As far as what styles will be available that is still sketchy but that should be cleared up soon. It should also be noted that this would create new jobs at the New Balance manufacturing plants which is always great news.
