What is so special about New Balance shoes?
The company was founded in 1906 as the “New Balance Arch Support Company” and is one of the world’s major sports footwear and apparel manufacturers. New Balance always has, and always will be, committed to making shoes in the U.S. In 2013, 1 out of every 4 pairs of shoes New Balance sold in the USA was made or assembled in the US. Where domestic value is at least 70%, New Balance labels their shoes “Made in the USA.”. For this reason New Balance shoes tend to be more expensive than those of many other manufacturers and many customers don’t understand why.
Another specialty of New Balance are their technical features, such as blended gel inserts, heel counters and a greater selection of sizes. New Balance shoes are available for very narrow or very wide widths, which benefits people with unusual feet.
Alternatives to NB1 New Balance Custom Shoes and Sneakers
Although the chances are big that you probably own a pair of New Balance 574 sneakers and enjoy their comfortable fit or at least know a person that does, the concept of customization is all about individuality! If a custom designed New Balance 574 shoe is not unique for you, you might enjoy alternatives from other big brands like Converse, Vans, Reebok, Nike or K-Swiss.
