The above review about the sneakers supposed to keep your feet warm sold me on buying these shoes. The last thing in the world I would ever want is for sneakers to hold in the heat. Thank you, Chyep, after reading your review I knew that these would be the shoes for me and the 501s did not disappoint.

This is my 3rd pair of 501's consecutively and once again the style looks great and the shoes are comfortable and well made. In almost all of the pics of this shoe the "N" and trim look maroon but they are definitely brown. Buy a pair and enjoy!

These shoes are comfortable and look nice, but guess what? THEY DON'T INSULATE YOUR FEET TO SAVE THEIR LIFE! EPIC FAIL NEW BALANCE! One of the few comfortable lifestyle classics left, and they are absolutely pointless, because they're not even the tiniest bit warm. My feet were so freezing EVEN INSIDE THE CAR. Like come on. What's the point of sneakers if they can't keep your feet even the slightest bit warm? -_-

I needed a very lightweight shoe to wear around the neighborhood, and I've always wanted a Red sports/walking shoe. So of course I turned to Zappos, and found this New Balance ML501. The shoe is ultra lightweight -- and I'm not joking. It fits my feet easily, although it's a tiny bit snug in the width. Comfortable as can be! From the first time I put them on, until today, a couple of months later, the shoes are easy to wear, don't weigh me down, and are nice to my hammertoes, calluses, and grungy toenails. The red color is still vibrant and the shoe seems to stay clean, even in New York City where the sidewalks are modeled after towns in old Western movies. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone who has tired feet, or wears heavy shoes to work, and wants a cool, comfortable change-to shoe in the evenings. I'm in my early 60's, and the older I get the more I could care less about the opinions or styles of others. So, if you've wanted a good pair of walking shoes that are built well and a joy to wear, the New Balance Classics ML501 is your shoe! On a side note -- why do so many people come to NYC during the summer, when the sidewalks and subways are intolerably hot? Why subject yourself to the worst possible time of year to play tourist? Come in the autumn or early summer (May-June is great); or even during the December holidays. But don't torture yourself just to say you "did" New York in July or August!
