I have been wearing New Balance 442's for a few years now. I saw the 501's and thought I'd give them a try, because I just couldn't find a color combination that I liked in the 442 style. Let me say that I will not go back to the 442's. I am a 501 girl now! I have already gotten many compliments on them. I like the retro style, and the bright colors, as well as the soft squishy comfortable in-sole. I could wear these every day, which is why I bought 2 pair! I would recommend these to anyone that likes the classic/old-school style tennis shoe!

Fantastic sneakers! I have pain in my heels and usually have to wear ugly nurses shoes to work. Tried these and love them. Was on my feet for 10 hours with no pain! They look really cute too. They do run about 1/2 size small (at least for me).

These sneakers remind me of High School...in the late 1970's to early 1980's. Lightweight, comfortable...and, yes, "retro." But what's not to love? They hold up well...don't drag you down and give great support!

I'd also recommend: Nike cortez and puma retro's

This is a great looking, comfortable shoe at an excellent price. Its goes well with jeans. The navy is a perfect neutral color. I am very happy with my purchase and will be purchasing more New Balance in the future. I highly recommend this shoe. It has excellent arch support as well. Zappos is awesome, as usual. I ordered this shoe around 3pm and had it the next afternoon. You really can't beat that kind of instant gratification.

These are a bit roomier than the Saucony Jazz (which I often wear) but comfortable and supportive nonetheless. I like that the color is almost solid black, since so many sneakers come in only bright, crazy colors lately. These are nice for days when you have to be wearing sneakers by don't want shoes with an overpowering color contrast. They have great arch support and heel support. Quality is good...just not quite as cushiony and light as my Sauconys.

I'd also recommend: Saucony, Naot, Doc Martens, Dankso, Vans, Nike
