Our top picks from the New Balance MADE in USA collection

The MADE in USA line is a popular collection from New Balance. Besides the fact that the line runs well, it also has a special philosophy. In this article, we explain the vision of the MADE in USA line and show the most popular products of the moment.


The MADE in USA collection, as the name suggests, is made in the United States, but why exactly is this special? So the MADE in USA line is made in factories located in America, by American workers. Manufacturing in USA gives locals a better chance of job security. About 7,000 Americans have been able to get a job through the collection. This was much needed as unemployment is relatively high in America.

In addition to providing more jobs in America, the collection is also known for its high quality. In developing the MADE IN USA line, craftsmanship is paramount. The extra quality in material and construction makes the USA collection very popular among sneakerheads.

The MADE in USA collection consists of several editions of the New Balance 990 model. In addition to being able to see the 990 silhouette reflected in the USA series, the line also includes apparel pieces.

In addition to the MADE in USA collection, New Balance has also released a MADE in UK line.

MADE in USA 990v3 'White Blue'

The first 990 model was released in 1982. The original running shoe is incredibly popular as a lifestyle sneaker in anno 2023. This 'White Blue' colorway is part of the third version of the well-known 990 silhouette.

The base of the model consists of mesh. This provides a breathable feel while walking. Cream-colored quaters are placed over the mesh base. For a pop of color, you will see a dark blue color recurring in small details on the 990v3.
