Description The New Balance 1290 running shoe was designed in Boston and made in Maine, which is, coincidentally, about how far you feel you can run in this lightweight performer before you even notice it's on your feet. Part of our Made in the USA Collection, its REVlite® midsole foam, ABZORB® insert for cushioning and blown rubber outsole make this a shoe that takes you along for the ride.
These shoes are proudly made in our U.S. factories by our more than 1,300 U.S. workers. Where the domestic value is at least 70% we have labeled them "Made in USA."
