New Balance has created two exclusive collections with high-quality items called 'Made in the USA' and 'Made in the UK'. The 'Made in' collections are known for their higher standards when it comes to the quality of materials and manufacturing. This is also why many sneakerheads rave about the designs.
The sneakers and apparel feature high-quality materials, retro looks and limited production - everything a connoisseur looks for.
Made in the USA
As the name suggests, items from the Made in the USA collection are developed and made by American workers in American factories. This creates more job security for local people. By working with local production companies, an additional 7,000 Americans are provided with jobs. To make the importance of this known, in 2012 a unique 990 shoe was designed for President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
More than 4 million New Balance sports shoes are now made or assembled in the USA every year. Of which at least 70%, come under the name Made in the USA. In 2021, Teddy Santis was appointed Creative Director of the collection and a lot of hyped stuff has been released since then.
Made in the USA Styles
You're probably asking yourself right now, what kind of items could I score? Below, we have listed a few unisex styles for you that belong to the Made in the USA collection.
MADE in USA Core Hoodie
First up is the Core Hoodie, which is currently a must-have for winter. The hoodie is made with high-quality craftsmanship and has a classic sports design. In addition, the jumper is made of terry cloth and it has a double-lined hood, ensuring ultimate comfort.
MADE in USA Core Crewneck Sweatshirt
Of course, New Balance also has a sweatshirt. Like the hoodie, this sweatshirt has a minimalist NB patch logo on the chest and is also made of a premium, heavy terry fabric.
MADE in USA Core Sweatpants
To complete the look, the brand comes up with the Core Sweatpants, which are the same colour as the styles above. The trousers have a mid rise cut and waistband with drawstring which wraps around your body.
Made in USA 990v2
The Made in USA collection includes a number of sneakers, one of which is this 990v2. The pair has a premium upper of nubuck, full-grain leather and mesh. The ABZORB midsole cushioning in the sneaker provides everyday comfort.
MADE in USA 990v3
Another silhouette that has already attracted attention is the 990v3. The upper is made of high-quality roughened suede, pig suede and mesh. What is different from the previous pair is that this one features ENCAP midsole cushioning.
