Blaze your own trail in the men’s 978 trail walking shoe. Leading with some of our best trail technology, this adventure companion features a durable nubuck leather upper that forms a protective barrier around your feet, given flexibility by a gusseted tongue that allows for freedom of movement. The lower unit features ABZORB responsive midsole cushioning, a 3/4 Rock Stop plate for added protection against roots and rocks, and a Rollbar posting system to help reduce rear-foot movement. Last but not least, Gore-Tex® material on the upper helps resist water while letting your feet breathe.

Boy was I surprised! I ordered the 978's as a replacement for my worn out 1569's in the 10eeee, the size I've worn for years and years. I took my customary 7 mile walk and my feet hurt . Alas the shoes were apparently too tight. I love New Balance shoes and the whole line preceeding the 1569's. I'm very chagrined to have been thrown off track!!
