[new] balance

So...Adam and I watched something interesting on the History Channel last night about New Balance [the shoe company]

NB has 5 plants
ALL in the United States
They make 1 shoe size per plant per day
NM donates personalized shoes to all areas of the military 

They shared so much more than that, but that was enough to make me want to trade in my Nikes for NewBalance...and yes that makes me feel old, but that's okay! :)

  1. I got my New Balance sneakers about 8 years ago for high school gym class.

    Still have them. Still love them. I've worn them a lot over the years, and I swear they still look almost new.
