New Balance Makes Custom 990 for President Obama | Sole Collector @newbalance @barackobama

With President Barack Obama making a stop in Maine last night, the local Norridgewock New Balance factory crafted a custom pair of running shoes for the 44th President of the United States. The 990s, chosen because it is the company's longest-produced running shoe made in the United States, were presented to President Obama by U.S Rep. Michael Michaud (D-Maine, 2nd). With the gift, Michaud and New Balance hoped to remind the President of the importance of domestically produced footwear.
