I have worn New Balance athletic shoes for as long as I can remember. Last week I was visiting the New Balance web site and discovered, much to my amazement, that New Balance is the only athletic shoe that is still manufactured in the United States.
At a time when American industry is outsourcing our jobs to China and India as fast as they can, I felt obligated to give a plug to a company that places American workers over profits. While other scumbag companies employ overseas workers at near slave wages, we have a company here who makes a great product and employs Americans to make that product.
I am not affiliated with New Balance in any way, except for the fact that we are both Americans.
