Provision requiring Dept. of Defense to buy American-made shoes for military, approved

The House approved a provision requiring the Department of Defense to buy American-made shoes for the military.

Boston-based New Balance would benefit from the provision, which is included in the defense spending bill.

New Balance is the only major athletic shoe company that still makes sneakers in the U.S.

The provision still needs to gain approval from the senate.
