Where did the New Balance came from?
What do have your auntie' s orthopedic shoes in common with stylish sneakers from New Balance? You may say nothing for the first sight, but if you look a little into the history (for about one hundred years back), you will see that they share one progenitor. New Balance were initially created as a functional footwear for people with feet/health problems. One model was even designed specifically for police officers and the people who work long standing ... a little weird, right? :) Anyway current style of New Balance sneakers does not have much in common with orthopedic sandals. Nevertheless, anatomical cut, support of the instep and arch remained for the company an extremely important aspect of production until 1961. Then thez released model Trackster - the first performance running shoes in the world, produced with the wavy soles and in several widths. Of course, they became a hit especially among university students and since then the company has just gone up. The fact is, that New Balance sneakers are in fact known as one of the most comfortable and restistant shoes in the world.
