New Balance St. Louis on Clayton Road announces a partnership with the St. Louis Redbirds Baseball club, along with New Balance being designated as the official shoe of the club.
Since October 2012, New Balance St. Louis has worked with the Redbirds to outfit players with New Balance turf shoes, cleats and apparel.
During special event nights, they received free foot scans while being professionally fit and evaluated by certified pedorthist and store manager Stephanie Hoth or one of the store’s other fitting specialists.
The club selected the brand because New Balance styles are manufactured in multiple sizes and widths from narrow to extra wide.
“It’s been an incredibly rewarding experience,” said Hoth. “Walking into their practice facilities, you see 70 kids decked out in New Balance gear. We are very fortunate to have been able to forge this relationship with the club.”
The St. Louis Redbirds Baseball club was formed in 1987 as a member of the St. Louis Amateur Baseball Association. The goal has always been to develop players to succeed at the high school, collegiate and professionally levels. Former players such as David Freese and Ryan Howard have gone on to professional success.
