Men's M 505

There’s a lot to say about a shoe that’s designed for both performance and style. The New Balance 505 running shoe is built to cushion and support, and the black and gray upper will rock your look.

  • Synthetic and cooling mesh upper with lace-up front
  • Abzorb® cushioning in the heel absorbs shocks
  • Long-wearing, non-marking sole

    "The shoe is pretty much spot on when it comes to size so whatever your shoe size, go ahead and order that.
    Pros: comfortable, stretchy, will be slightly snug but forms to foot rather quickly since it is mesh
    Cons: little narrow at toes but I have wide feet but it does stretch. Not much support for hours of wear at one time."
    Pros: Lightweight, Good traction, Breathable
    Cons: No Arch Support, Not Supportive Enough
