I wonder what they mean, glues? The rubber compounds? Any kind of fats used to form the rubberstuff?arts_bandit wrote:Just got this reply from New Balance re. vegan trainers
Hello Mr. green,
New Balance has manufacturing plants in several countries China and Great Britain but the majority of our factories are located here in the United States. In all fairness, we do not have any shoes we can truly call Vegan since we do not have the exact origin of all the materials used to make the shoes. The closest we have is our 070 Eco Friendly shoe made with a reduced waste design and recycled materials, but not Vegan friendly. I am sorry, we don’t have one to offer at this time, but New Balance is always doing research and developing new ideas and the idea of having a Vegan shoe has come up quite a lot, I have not heard of anything in development, but I would not be surprised to hear about something along those lines in the coming seasons. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions.
