Take a look at the sneakers you’re currently wearing. Have any idea where they were made? Chances are, you don’t. And it’s even more likely you wouldn’t like the answer if you did (does the word sweatshop ring a bell?).
The good news is, there are a lot of brands out there bringing manufacturing back to the United States, creating both jobs and an ethical product to stand behind. But New Balance isn’t a rookie in the “made in America” game. The only major company producing athletic footwear in this country, they’ve been slinging USA-made products for more than 75 years. That’s employment for 1,300 Americans in Massachusetts and Maine.
American Rebel is the latest New Balance Made in USA collection, inspired by rebel culture and style that defined the 1950s and 60s in America. Think motorcycles, hot rods, leather jackets and that tousled James Dean look – all the things the ladies love. The new collection drops in July, but you can shop the rest of New Balances Made in USA styles right now.
