In 1906, an English inventor in Boston, Massachusetts, set out to improve footwear performance for those on their feet all day. William J. Riley was inspired by the perfect balance exhibited by chickens in his yard. His first product, a flexible arch support, was designed with three points of support in the shape of a triangle. By mimicking a chicken’s clawed foot, these three points created greater balance and comfort. With this invention, a new company, New Balance Arch, was born. Our inspiration has gone far beyond chickens’ feet. New Balance designers and engineers take inspiration from almost everywhere – from nature, to elite athletes, to simple everyday objects and activities. What hasn’t changed is our focus on improving performance. New Balance innovation continues to be about changing the footprint of running. Our philosophy is simple: Listen, learn and refine. It’s an approach to technology that puts us face to face with world class athletes and everyday athletes alike. It keeps us focused on the goal we share with everyone who runs, walks or competes.
