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
  • Suede overlays for additional comfort
  • Suede/textile upper

It fits great, and very stylish. Super comfy and feels like I'm walking on carpet sometimes. My only concern is the traction. They're not that good especially when the sidewalks/roads are wet or icy. Overall though, it looks great with almost any outfit!

After 6 months , the sole is still stiff. Sore feet after daily use. Try a fitness walker.

Looks exactly like the photos. Great color that goes with a lot of outfits. Comfortable to wear and walk around in. I wear 9.5 - 10 in other brands, but in NB a 9 fits perfectly, so think about trying on or sizing a half size down if you'e new to the brand.

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!

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
