New Balance Shoes: How the Perfect Fit Brand Began

You see them at every shoe store you go into and their brand is known across the country.  No it’s not Nike or Converse, we’re talking about New Balance running shoes. As one of the most popular choices for a running shoe, New Balance has established their reputation for providing some of the most comfortable running shoes that offer many different width sizes for any foot type.

The shoe brand came to be from an idea by William Riley during the early 1900s.  He started out making comfortable shoes with arch supports added for people who worked long days on their feet such as policemen. In 1961, the first “Trackster” New Balance shoe was designed with many different width sizes that made the brand what it is today. After the Trackster, New Balance shoes were sold across the country as runners chose the New Balance brand for a proper fit and comfortable feel.

Today, New Balance prides itself on providing the best fitting pair of shoes you’ve ever had. With the best possible fit from length, width, insole, and angle, you can likely depend on finding a running shoe that fits your specific size without worry of needing to return them.

When you choose to buy a pair of running shoes that fit properly to your foot size, such as a New Balance shoe, can help improve the health of your feet. Podiatrist Harvey Danciger suggest a proper fit of shoe for any type of activity, especially running, to prevent common foot complications from arising due to shoes that don’t provide enough support for your feet. Common foot problems that Dr. Danciger treats from poor fitting shoes include:

  • Blisters
  • Calluses
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ingrown toenails

Such conditions can cause your feet pain and keep you off your feet.
