Like many, I think New Balance shoes have been going downhill for years, and yet, the 574 has remained my favorite sneaker. So when I noticed that these shared the same shoe last as the 574, I had to give them a try and I'm glad I did. Why? Because they're basically the same shoe, except they're lighter (probably less padding) and more sporty. I still prefer the 574, but the nylon uppers of the 501 remind me of running shoes when I was a kid. I think they'll be great for next Summer. Overall, these are basically 574's with a different look to them. Can't go wrong there.

I've been wearing New Balance classics for years (before J Crew started selling them for a lot more money). I was taken aback by how cheaply made these are. I obviously wasn't expecting a performance shoe, but these are dreadfully cheap. 574s might be a better bet.

These are sharp looking shoes, but not much more. They feel a little narrow, but I like a wide toe box.

Very pleased with these shoes. They're incredibly light and comfortable to walk in for long distances/periods of time. I do not run in these, however, so I can't speak to that. My only issue is that they don't breathe very well, but it's only a minor inconvenience and not enough to stop me from buying these again.

The shoe is awesome! It is soft and flexible, comfortable to wear and trendy. The only grievance I have with it is that is does not wick moisture well through the canvas portion (color accent) and my feet tend to heat quickly even with nylon/wool socks, so there's that. Otherwise great and would buy again and again! Especially from Zappos and especially for the price, I mean next day shipping for free? Come on!

The shoes look great! I've already received several compliments on them. The only downside is that they start to hurt the heels of my feet after wearing them for almost a full day. If you get them for casual wear (as opposed to use while running) I think you'll be very satisfied. I love these shoes because they go with such a wide range of outfits (they match nearly all colors and you can dress them up or down).
