This is our commitment—not a passing fad. More than 75 years ago, we made our first shoes in the U.S., and we’ve never left. Throughout, American Makers have always been at the forefront. Let’s celebrate them and their craft.
* We’re proud to be the only major
New Balance is proud to say that they’re the only major company to make or assemble 4 million plus pairs of shoes every year here in the USA. No other company comes even close to that number, and that’s definitely something to boast about, which is exactly why they label all the domestic shoes shoes “Made in the USA”.
Their newest “Made in the USA” iteration comes in the form of a New Balance 996 silhouette. With their guitar inspired theme well under way in 2015, this is the latest from their “Connoisseur Guitar” line. The New Balance 996 “Mint” is said to be inspired by a seafoam green Fender Stratocaster. The 996 is constructed of a mint suede that is nicely paired with mesh of the same colorway. 3m hits take on the piping and “N’ logo to complete the look on this amazing looking shoe.
