Is the New Balance brand good?

New Balance is one of the few brands that still produces in the USA. Two of their factories are located in Massachusetts and three in Maine. They also have one in the UK (Flimby), and China has also become a contract production site for T-shirts and other sportswear.

New Balance says they stand for much more than just sneakers. They stand up for those who fearlessly follow their passions and therefore promote sport. They also want to do the right thing for people and the environment by driving meaningful change in communities worldwide. "It's about today".
