The fit of my Nb 978 are great and comfortable as well. They grab the dirt on slippery terrain and keeps me going on the trails. Only thing I would change is the insole. Needs a little more cushion.

Comfortable shoe that keeps feet warm and dry but the sole does not hold up. I walk 10+ miles a day for work and less than a month and a half the sole wore off the back of both shoes

GoreTex liner makes them fit tight

These shoes are one of the best boots they have ever made. They were discontinued years ago and have been re-released and brought back! The 1569's replaced them, then the 1400's. The 978 is the original and one of the best. They do run tight and the GoreTex makes them that way because it is a liner on the inside of the shoe.

My fiancee has very wide feet; the only tennis shoes he can comfortably wear are NB. I purchased him a pair of NB hiking/working/casual boots in hopes he would have some comfort during cold weather months. He says they feel pretty good. I think he could have used one size wider (I believe they only went to 4E) but it's better than nothing. He's only had for 1 week; so far so good.

For several years now I've almost exclusively worn minimalist toe shoes. They're fine for Southern California, but I felt they'd be insufficient for the winter trip to Philadelphia I needed to make this year. I managed to arrive right at the beginning of the "bomb cyclone", and my ridiculously wide feet have been warm and dry, without being crushed. I couldn't be happier.
