@Ralphjones380 1. note the smiley face at the end of my first comment. it was meant to be tongue in cheek. get it? i would also bet ANYTHING that those are china/vietnam made. 2. vietnam/china made newbies suffer greatly from a lack of proper construction, and its standard throughout all models. the fabrication in terms of materials, color blocking may be superb, but overall construction is just shit when compared to usa + uk made models. 3. yes location matters in new balance's case when it comes to quality. pick up a pair of asian made 998s and compare em to the usa made 998s OR asian made 1500s to uk made 1500s OR asian made 577s to uk made 577s. BIG DIFFERENCE. i personally dont doubt the fact the materials are most probably the same but its the way it is put together. lastly, thank you for the comment on me being an idiot/retard. really rings true given im educated and am going somewhere in my life.


and if u want to shut me up, please show me where ronnie fieg did a 1500. PLEASE. IM PLEADING WITH YOU.

@Ralphjones380  dude he has a point... ive noticed that with all american and non european collabs eg bodega hyprcat/burn rubber joe louis/ronnie fieg cords 577s and nice kicks 1500s, (effectively models that are usually made in flimby) are made in vietnam and their quality is shit... where as the us models like 998 and 1300 are usa made when with us collaborators... and us models collaborated with non-us entities like sneaker freaker 998s are asian made... and seriously judging by the shapes of the burn rubber/bodega 577s, and even the nice kicks 1500, the quality is shit and u wouldnt want them when comparing them to the flimby made models... so if u wanna cuss me out for sharing information as to why the first poster on this page is hating on asian made collabs, be my guest :D
