Even with New Balance 574 Red Black that growth, Boston-based New Balance realized it was headed down a risky path of becoming too associated with fashion. While many companies dream of turning into a lifestyle brand, being trendy can be fleeting, DeMartini said. That’s why New Balance needs to solidify itself as an athletic brand based around performance products, he said. “In the lifestyle business, New Balance 574 Shop UK SALE there is a cycle to it, ” DeMartini said. “Sometimes you’re in, and sometimes you’re out. ”New Balance also is heavily reliant on running shoes, something it’s looking to change. It’s a huge category in the U. S. but not as big overseas. In February, New Balance branched out into soccer by signing endorsement deals with 10 players, including Vincent Kompany of Manchester City, and one of the world’s most popular clubs in Liverpool. The company declined to say how much it’s spending on the marketing effort.

“Our goal is New Balance 574 For Sale to be in the top three of global athletic brands, ” DeMartini said at the time. “And to get to the top three, we have to be in the world’s biggest sport. ”New Balance, founded in 1906, also wants to appeal to younger buyers. Since teenagers and 20-somethings are the ones competing in sports, focusing more on performance shoes will get help the attention of those shoppers. The ad campaign, which includes the first television commercials in about four years, will reach the 70 countries where New Balance distributes products. The tv spot features 17 athletes in various sports around the world.

“It’s not New Balance 574 Red White Black Running Trainers the locker room, chest-beating testosterone position that some would take, ” DeMartini said. “It’s not the position that worships athletes. It’s a position that recognizes that our job is to constantly make better products to help athletes get better. It does differentiate us. ”Time may be running out for the last American-made running shoes. New Balance Athletic Shoe Inc., owned by former marathoner Jim Davis and his wife Ann, is the sole athletic-shoe maker that still has factories in the U. S. Those plants churn out about a quarter of the shoes it sells domestically. The rest are imported.

The company New Balance NB 574 ML574OST White For Sale has continued to make shoes in the U. S., even though that means settling for less profit. New Balance says the flexibility of its U. S. factories and turnaround times counted in days, rather than weeks, help make up for the higher cost. But a push by rivals to do away with tariffs on imported running shoes, as part of a larger trade deal, could finally tip the scales against its American strategy. "A rapid reduction of the existing [tariff] agreements would put our factories here at significant risk, " says Robert DeMartini, CEO of the Boston-based company, which is fighting to keep the tariffs in place.
