When it comes to major athletic brands, most companies' abhorrent manufacturing practices leave a lot to be desired. And then there's New Balance. Take a spin through one of their stores or pick up one of their colorful athletic shoes and you'll probably find a little surprise printed on the tag: "Proudly Made In The USA."
While other brands have moved more and more of their production overseas, New Balance has increased their domestic manufacturing jobs by 45% since 1995, and have never -- I repeat, NEVER -- laid off a domestic factory worker. Currently, 25% of New Balance shoes (that's 7 million pairs a year) are made in the USA. And if you ask me, that's pretty freakin' awesome.
If you want to support American workers, pamper your feet, and look fabulous at the gym, New Balance is absolutely the way to go. I've picked out a few of my favorite sneakers (and one magical pair of socks) from their USA collection. Click through to check 'em out!
