It's not often that we've had the opportunity to highlight New Balance's 501 runner, but this new in-line "Ballistic Pack" is certainly an attention-grabber. Available in black, burgundy, green and navy, the shoes feature ballistic nylon and premium suede builds with tonal leather hits on the "N" logo and heel tab. Contrast stitching is used to draw out the look, while white midsoles and gum rubber outsoles wrap things up below.
Look for the "Ballistic Pack" to drop during the third quarter of 2012.
