The New Balance Arch Support Company was founded in 1906 by William J.Riley. Based in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston, Riley along with Arthur Hall were locally known to produce arch support for footwear through out the 1900’s. In 1960, the company would create the worlds first running shoe made with a ripple sole. Once the athletes at MIT & BU began wearing the ‘Trackster’ during track meets, the sky was the limit. In 1972, current Chairman Jim Davis bought the company & took it from a 30 employee company to the world wide brand we know today.
In pop culture, the late-great Apple genius himself, Steve Jobs has been known to sport New Balance footwear during his iconic presentations. Also musicians such as Kanye West, Rihanna, Pharrell & Action Bronson have been seen wearing this classic sneaker both on & off the stage.
In 2012, the New England brand made over 2 billion dollars in revenue with nearly 30% coming from the UK. It’s safe to say what was once Boston’s best kept secret is now a staple in the athletic & lifestyle world of fashion.
