Taking a new turn for the better, the Ballistic 501 honors its roots with a modern twist, available in suede and textile uppers that are both lightweight and breathable. These classic shoes feature the signature New Balance design with a retro flair, but the durability of the solid rubber outsole and the comfort of the foam midsole cushioning is anything but old-fashioned.
  • Ballistic mesh underlays
  • Solid rubber outsole

    Love the color

    - Tulsa, OK

    "I received a maroon and gray pair for Christmas last year that helped me get over a foot injury due to its support. I decided to stuck with New Balance for that purpose. They look good, feel good, and get the job done"

    Great style and fit

    - San Diego

    "This is my 3rd pair of 501's. They're super comfortable and my prescription orthotics are a great fit once the liner is removed. Very light show that breathes well and doesn't deform and look ragged like the 574's do. I bought the blue/white and jazzed em up with red laces for Independence Day!"

    Nice Sneaker questionable sizing

    - Voorhees Township, NJ, USA

    "Good looking product. Very light and therefore agile. No heavy rubber but adequate cushioning. I bought 11/2E and found that a 4E may have provided a more comfortable sneaker for me. I usually ware 10.5 W To my surprise, 4E was however not available."
