These trail walking shoes are constructed to handle the versatility of rugged terrain with a durable nubuck leather upper and stable outsole. The mid-cut style will give you confidence and a secure fit around the ankle while the Rock Stop plate provides further protection against rocks and tree roots.

      Upper: Water-resistant Nubuck leather provides protection from the elements. Lace-up front offers an adjustable fit. Padded tongue and collar foam enhance comfort.

      978 run small , but are good

      These are not as good as the 977 in regards to the upper part of the shoe

      They are definitely good shoes but go with a larger size

      Holabird is the best. Super efficient, quick shipping and great support

      Item was returned

      I purchased NB 978v1as a replacement for NB MW956GT which I've worn for years. I did not feel comfortable with the 2 additional eyelets being this is a boot style with the 956GT was not. If there is a comparable model to the discontinued MW956GT I'd appreciate your letting me know.

      Thank you

      There, unfortunately, is no direct replacement close to the NW956GT besides the 978V1. We're sorry that it did not fit you as expected. You can see the other New Balance trail shoes we carry here >>> https://www.holabirdsports.com/collections/hiking-shoes/brand_new-balance.

      Company easy to work with.

      Replacing hiking boots that lasted 15 years with the same model that I expect the same durability.

      Only problem very slow shipping time. 8 days from MD to CA.
