Yes, I recommend this product.
"I purchased these to wear while gardening and working in a woodlot. I've been digging and cutting down large shrubs and small trees on uneven territory. I haven't tested the waterproofing except in very wet grass. I purchased the same size as my NB running shoes and the fit is good. Only three concerns...1. the leather will stain your socks; and 2. the sides come up a bit too high and rub the ankle bones; and 3. the heel tab is too short to help pull the shoes on. I use a shoehorn. I put in my shoe orthotics and broke the shoe in more and no longer have a problem with rubbing on ankle bones."

"I had a pair of 967's which had over 500 hiking miles on them and they were wearing out. I went to the New Balance store and was told these were the replacements. I bought them a half size larger because they said that they were slightly smaller. These shoes hurt my feet! I wore tem to scout camp with my two grandson's for a week. By the end of the week my feet were so sore from these shoes I couldn't wait to get out of them. I still wear my 967's for working in the yard and the like."
