When brands begin to examine their back catalogue and archived designs as a means of selecting re-issues, it is a process that can often be fraught with difficulty and hazards surrounding quality control and shape etc. In New Balance terms however, the depth and width of back catalogue is deep and broad that it can easily influence the creation of new models or hybrids. The 501 is such a model, where classic elements of past catalogues can permeate the future, where legacies are reborn.

The New Balance Womens 501 is primarily combining the upper overlays of the New Balance 410 model but with the updated dual density EVA sole tooling of the ubiquitous 574. With these two classics of the New Balance back catalogue together for the first time - real ambassadors of the brand -then its no surprise that the 501 excels in comfort and style, taking the best elements of two to create one. Add in a material mix of suede and mesh/nylon upper to maintain lightweight durability and breathability with a heavy rubber outsole and dual density midsole delivering stalwart New Balance ENCAPĀ® support and stability. It's a retro inspired design, a sleeker style of a classic silhouette that delivers all the performance values in keeping your foot ultra comfortable.
