New Balance Sued For Exaggerating Claims On Its ‘Made In USA’ Sneakers

January 30, 2021

New Balance is being sued for falsely marketing its sneakers as being “Made in the USA,” according to The Fashion Law.

Plaintiffs Matthew Cristostomo, Anthony Bollini, Spencer Verrilla, Derrick Evans, Clifton Bradley, and Robert Kaminsky claim that New Balance is misrepresenting the quality of its sneakers with its American flag tongue badges, “Made in the USA and “Made in the US for over 75 years” markings.

The plaintiffs claim that as much as 30 percent of the parts of New Balance shoes are imported overseas or made with foreign labor. SGB Media
