|Title||The New Balance Sneakers You Can Feel Good About Buying Right|
|Description||Last November, Boston-based sneaker brand New Balance got itself in serious hot water when one of its VPs,<a href="http://www.typeofshoe.com/" rel="nofollow">new balance 574 damen</a> Matthew LeBretton, said that he felt a Trump presidency would mean good things for the company specifically in regards to the how the death of the Trans Pacific Partnership would align with its own "Made-in-America" ethos.
LeBretton's comments ignited a firestorm of controversy considering New Balance had an ongoing beef with the Obama administration regarding a contract to make sneakers for the military. One that was hopefully squashed after Obama signed a bill in December guaranteeing the military buys made-in-America sneakers for new recruits. All of this,<a href="http://www.typeofshoe.com/" rel="nofollow">new balance 574 schuhe</a> including what many felt was a disingenuous, weak response to the controversy from the brand especially when it came to the brand being endorsed by literal neo-Nazis,seemed only to exacerbate the idea that New Balance supported Trump.
We get that outrage.But the merits of globalism and the T.P.P. could be argued all day.All we're saying is there are other considerations that should come in to play when judging a brand like New Balance.<a href="http://www.typeofshoe.com/" rel="nofollow">new balance 580</a> For example, when it comes to manufacturing well-made sneakers, New Balance shows a commitment to decent wages for workers in ways few other labels of its size do.
Buying less but buying better might seem like a small issue during a time when our President is denying climate change, turning a blind eye to corporate greed,<a href="http://www.typeofshoe.com/" rel="nofollow">new balance 580 damen</a> and stealing Bernie Sanders' made-in-U.S.A.-favoring policies to fuel his own terrifying neo-Fascist tendencies. But voting with your dollars is actually one of the best and easiest ways you can make a difference right now.
