New Balance was founded on one simple maxim: we were born to move. For over a century, that idea has inspired us to support athletes of all kinds in their pursuit of excellence, whether that means winning a medal or just leading a more active lifestyle.

But as proud as we are of our history, we're even more excited about our future. We innovate fearlessly, guided by our core values and driven by the belief that conventions were meant to be challenged. We seek leaders and pioneers - those kindred spirits who follow only their passions - because tomorrow belongs to the courageous of today.

Join us in upholding a culture of integrity, teamwork, and community. Join New Balance and declare your independence.
