New Law Would Force Military to Supply US Made Running Shoes

Los Angeles, CA – 05/29/2013—If a new piece oflegislation is passed, the US Military would be required to supply thoseentering basic training with running shoes made in the US.


Current federal law requires the Department ofDefense to supply troops with American made uniforms and equipment “to thegreatest extent possible”. However, currently the law has not been applied toshoes worn by recruits in basic training.


If passed, the DOD would have to purchase shoesfrom the New Balance company. New Balance is the only major manufacturer thatmakes running shoes in the United States.
