J. Crew is a machine eating up the market right now. Leaving most of their own production overseas, they bring home the “Made in the U.S.A.” gleam through local U.S.A. based partners. Tactical move and one that has been working for them. The Made in the U.S.A. New Balance 1400′s are another example of this work. “The New Balance for J. Crew collection features two unique colorways of the 1400 sneaker in premium suede, which were designed in tandem by J. Crew’s Head of Men’s Design, Frank Muytjens, and New Balance. The New Balance for J. Crew collection features domestically tanned leathers from premium Made-in-USA partners in an on-going effort to support local American manufacturers.” They’ll retail for $130 a pair through their normal channels.
