Would you buy New Balance sneakers knowing that the sells benefits couples with one more child?

China; One of the greatest factories of NB sneakers is located in a small region a China. The more demand of NB sneakers would represent profits and higher wages for the workers. A prosper region in which workers can dream of having one more child.

  • I am assuming sneakers and not the Candy Bar. And no I would not buy them. The last I heard they were made in the U.S. so thank you for the info and I will look into it. I try to consume ethically.

  • If they lowered the cost of their sneakers! The price is rediculous. If you are talking about sneakers. I prefer Nikes.

  • New Balance SNEAKERS??? And what is this issue with China and their policy that people ony have one child. Of course I don't agree with their policy but I am not going to stop buying New Balance SNEAKERS just because of that. If I find a pair on sale and they fit well, I will buy them.
    You say the "sells" benefit couples with one child. It would be "SALES" . I don't get what you are saying?

  • if i were going to buy a pair of sneakers ( i wear mostly heels) i would look at that brand first. however, if the price was not reasonable and i could not find a design i liked, i would not buy them.
