Chronicle of the founding of New Balance: New Balance, a well-known leading brand of running shoes, you may not know that it was just a small factory in Boston, USA, making corrective insoles and related shoe accessories. Founder William J. Riley founded the brand in 1906. The first product was not running shoes, but an elastic arch pad designed with the concept of three-point support. The origin of the brand name is quite interesting. It is said that Larry saw the rooster "Golden Rooster Independence" in the courtyard, so he imitated the rooster to stand on one leg on the desk and design products. Larry believes that his insoles can bring people a "new balance", and the name "New Balance" was born from this.
It is the only traditional brand that is still manufactured locally in the United States. It is known as the "Presidential Jogging Shoes" and "King of Jogging Shoes" in the United States and many countries.
