New Balance: Still (Mostly) Made in the USA
On quick perusal, Many athletic Mens New Balance shoes, particularly the classic sneaker styles, are Made in the United States. The 812 Walking Shoe, as well as numerous service industry styles are made right at the Newton Street factory in Boston. Women's fashion shoes and select men's and women's athletic styles are made overseas. Sometimes the country of origin is not listed on a retailer's site. Sometimes cross referencing the model number or name to the New Balance site proves necessary.
To boot - or should I say 'to sneaker' - New Balance is closed this Thanksgiving Day. The customer service line and factories are closed. Hopefully, the company will stay steadfast in allowing their employees to take a break, just as it is committed - thus far - to keeping important jobs on U.S. soil.
