NB only makes the older models (the greyish motion-controlled running/walking shoes and a few others) in the US. Used to sell them and the rep told me it's because it's a lot cheaper to modernize equipment and train/retrain workers abroad than in the US. The newer shoes are a lot more complex and are harder to make. Most of the machinery in the US factories are post WWII vintage and can't make the newer stuff
