I don't believe the one in the lower left corner is considered a world leader. Actually, either one of them. Does Xi use condiments on his dogs?

I’ve been in 3 different ITP stores in the last week and only found “Made in Vietnam” for all New Balance styles. I did not see any of the specifically enumerated USA styles on display.
Maybe you should have tried Amazon. There are plenty more but I listed a couple to make it easy.

I'd go bare footed first.

took the opportunity to verify I wasn’t spreading falsehoods on the internet
Now that's a statement that needs to be seen more often.(y)

Just to be clear...

Products made in the USA do not have to be labeled "Made In The USA". Products not made in the USA do have to have the Country of origin. Many of the New Balance line made in the USA have Made in the USA. Some do not have any country of origin. There are lots of products made in the USA that do not have Made IN The USA on them. Look for no country of origin or "Made In The USA" to find made in the USA products.

There's a small island chain in the Pacific that is a US protectorate - lets the folks there claim "Made in USA". But it is not what you think.

There was no confusion here; They were marked as stated. Zero unmarked and zero “Made in USA” were observed. 100% “Made in Vietnam”.

FWIW, I watched the "Made on a Day" episode about the New Balance 990 shoe made in Massachusetts. The shoe is assembled there from mostly American-source materials, but the sole does come from China. It seemed to be their flagship shoe (costs $185 on their website).

The show did not focus on any other styles, but I have owned one of their other made in the USA walking shoes. It cost a lot, looked rather plain, and the sole separated from the leather faster than any other shoe I have owned.
