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.

This shoe is awful. Within a weak of owning it developed an awful squeak. By the end of week two the shoe was terribly worn down. I've owned New Balances before and have never had a shoe that wore so quickly and poorly. This shoe will likely make me stay away from New Balances in the future - don't know what happened to their quality.

I was somewhat disappointed with this purchase. I requested the wide size, and they just do not seem as wide as my previous wide New Balance purchases. There was also a small black spot on the top of one shoe near the laces. I tried to wash it out to no avail. It is not that noticeable, I suppose. They are somewhat comfortable and attractive enough even with the stain. I am wearing them a lot.

They look cool and are very comfortable. The canvas upper is breathable, which is great for outdoor casual wear during the spring and summer.

I've been wearing a similar pair of New Balance sneakers (420, size 11) for years. I got these in the same size, but these felt much larger and so obviously not as snug as my previous pair. Style is awesome, though the green is less teal and more forest (picture vs real item) which was disappointing. Not comfortable, but this is likely due 100% to the large fit.

I originally bought the kids version of this shoe for my 6 year old and my husband loved them so much that I bought him a pair. He loves them.
