I used to work at New Balance. Historical US brand out of Boston that started off making inserts for support. They now make a ton of products for all sports and lifestyles. Quality can vary depending on style/product. But typically the more you pay the better the product is. They love to advertise that they are made in the USA but very very few items actually are- and some are only assembled in the USA. Pretty similar brand to Nike, Adidas, etc.
