The story today from the CEO of New Balance going on record saying the US government reneged on New Balance participating in providing American made sneakers to the US military.
Mr. EOS has worn New Balance 990′s since the dawn of America, the pair in the photo are his favorite for construction only- do not wear around the missus but he has a Sunday-go-to-meeting new pair he bought recently at LL Bean with a coupon to bring down the price from $12jillion to $11jillion! He even an in-between pair for everyday.
We were especially pleased to hear CEO DeMartini speak out against the TPP today, and give Obama’s administration a little jab for dealing this great company a raw deal. Makes me want to buy a pair of NB myself, but I won’t. NB sneaks don’t fit me at all but glad Mr. EOS finds them perfect for his running, walking, and even climbing up and down the scaffolding.
The NB CEO was on Fox & Friends this morning and it was a rare moment that I was even ON the Fox Channel, let alone caught this good interview. The video doesn’t embed properly in WordPress like a Your Tube one does so you’ll have to click this link to play it. It’s worth hearing him, his opinions on the TPP, what deal he made with the devil, then got hosed.
