While New Balance has made its name known as a reputable sneaker brand worldwide, it wasn’t always a sneaker company. In 1906, the company was founded as New Balance Arch Support Company, focusing on manufacturing arch supports for shoes rather than shoes itself. It wasn’t until 1927 that they rebranded as the New Balance Athletic Shoe Company. From then on, they’ve gone on a long journey to become a household name in the footwear industry.
One of their first shoe models, the Trackster, was conceptualized when founder William Riley noticed how his farm chickens achieved perfect balance due to their three-pronged feet. From there, he pushed for the manufacturing of a model that featured a ripple sole design. This provided track runners peak balance without losing comfortability.
Along with this, Riley also created shoe designs that focused on functionality rather than flavor-of-the-season gimmicks other brands were doing at the time. With this, they were able to win the American people's trust and eventually secure brand loyalty even with tough competition.
