I brought these shoes since all my shoes are new balance but sadly they do not fit like the rest of the new balance line. Great looking shoes just need to buy 1 size bigger then the usual new balance shoe

This model I order for the second time after two years. I walk a lot and I am very comfortable, warm and beautiful to wear in NB. In Moscow, the winter is very cold, but with these sneakers winter becomes pleasant and warm.

Phenomenal boot

I'm amazed. I needed a waterproof sneaker/boot with good traction that wasn't hot to wear. It also needed to be higher and have a U shape in the back. I have worn 928 and 993 for what seems like decades, so I wanted to duplicate that comfort. They are used for my courier job. It was a toss up between these and 1400s, but the back of these have the small U/notch I prefer on the back for comfort when driving (clutch, brake, acc pedals) due to my ankle read more

Works well for me

This shoe works quite well for me, size 9.5 B. I appreciate the narrow fit and they are very comfortable as walking shoes and for standing long hours on concrete in a wet environment. I've owned many pairs of this 970's models over many years and some previous models were not all that good. This current 978 fits very well, looks good, and is comfortable to live in for long hours. Hope NB will pay attention and not try to "improve" this model.

Order 1 full size up. These run small, but when you get the correct size, they are very comfortable.

I bought a pair of these quite a number of years ago. I wear them year round, so they have seen many miles. They are still like new and remain totally waterproof. From day one they were extremely comfortable. This shoe has no negative aspects. It is literally perfect for hiking and casual wear. If mine ever do wear out, I will buy another pair.
