Inspired by a mid-cut hiker boot, the men’s 989v1 work shoe features tough technology catering to the industrial worker who wants over-the-ankle protection. A durable fullgrain leather front half offers rugged durability, while a synthetic/mesh back adds breathability to keep your feet comfortable when the day gets tough. Meanwhile, REVlite midsole cushioning and an NB Ultra Soft Comfort insert offer the comfortable support you need to do what you do.
Added features include a slip resistant rubber outsole, composite safety toe cap, and electrical hazard protection. Combined with a signature New Balance comfortable fit, it’s designed to give all-day support to the light-duty industrial worker.

Amazing work boot — wish it came without a safety toe
September 02, 2017
Overall Fit Runs Small
This work boot is amazing. The relieved heel high-top allows you to slip in and out with ease while retaining ankle protection. The kick plate is perfect when on a ladder. The ventilation is cool and comfy, no sweaty feet. The grip is extremely good. My knee, ankle, and foot fatigue disappeared after two days of use. They look amazing. The shoe is light as a feather. The safety toe is useful and safe.
I had to return mine, though, because I cannot crouch in read more mine without the safety toe digging into my toes. Since so much of my job requires crouching, I cannot wear these. I found myself reaching for my running shoes every day.
I really wish they made a 989 without a safety toe. read less
