Review of MW978
By Rich, from Raleigh, NC | June 24, 2013
This is my second pair of MW978's and I like them more than ever. The shoe is comfortable and gives my foot plenty of support, which I need because I have some foot issues. It is also a good looking shoe. The upper leather part wears like iron. Can't say the same for the sole, which wears out way too soon. But, in all fairness, this is a hiking shoe and most of my walking is on pavement. I walk a minimum of 12 miles per week in these shoes.

Really nice shoe...
By Anonymous, from Ohio | May 09, 2013
Make sure you follow the sizing guide on New Balance's website for this shoe. Unlike most other NB shoes, this one runs small. Excellent quality and prompt shipping from Shoebuy.

A really great boot, for hiking, and even yardwork.High quality, and worth the price. Added bonus is Gortex.

Great boots!
By Logan, from Santa Rosa, Ca. | February 07, 2013
As usual, I'm very happy with my purchase--this time, NB boots. Requiring B-width shoes, about the only way I can get them is online. If it weren't for NB and Rockport, I'd just about be out of luck! These new boots are stylish, very comfortable, and are a true B width.

99 great
By MG, from Colorado | January 10, 2013
I love this winter hiking boot. The size is pretty true, especially the width (mine is narrow), but there is one minor problem. The padding in the collar above the ankle has padding in it but the padding ends short of the end of the collar. Depending on how tight I lace and if I use my orthodics or not, that point rubs on my ankle. Without the orthodics it's noticeable but not problematic. With the orthodics, it is painful after a full day in them.

Perfect fit
By J., from Austin, TX | December 17, 2012
Great all around hiking shoe. Extremely comfortable. No break-in required. I was worried about sizing. Most of the reviews on multiple web sites recommended sizing up a full size. I purchased my normal size and they're a perfect fit. Go figure.
