New Balance Shoes
New Balance is one of the worlds leading manufacturers of sports footwear and apparel. Beloved by celebrities and suburbanites alike, these instantly recognisable sneakers combine style and performance.
Established in Boston, Massachusetts by William J. Riley, New Balance began as an arch support company in 1906. William was an English immigrant who was passionate about creating supportive footwear, a value that New Balance has retained throughout its existence. By using travelling salesmen and marketing its first daily wear shoes toward retail workers, police officers and firefighters, New Balance gained an initial following among blue collar workers. In 1938 the company designed its first running shoe featuring a crepe sole. Soon after, New Balance expanded its athletic options to suit sports such as tennis, baseball and boxing. In 1976, New Balance unveiled the 320 running shoe. This shoe represented a turning point for the company as the 320 was named the number one running shoe on the market by Runners World magazine. This caused New Balance shoes to explode in popularity.
While the company has stayed true to its running shoe roots, they have since expanded into work shoes, skate shoes, athleisure shoes and walking shoes. No matter the style, buyers can expect their New Balance shoes to be made from high quality materials with close attention given to quality, detail and fit.
