Verified Buyer Reviewed by She buys them from California on Sunday, September 21, 2014This is my second pair of these boots. They are packed away in the box until my older pair begins to wear. I have had major difficulties with my feet and have gone to podiatrists for many years. None of them did for me what these boots did. My husband has three pair of the 978s. He feels the same way and urged me to buy a pair. The fit is perfect. I wore them with an over-the-counter orthotic from a foot mapping machine and was able to walk pain free on a trip to Europe. I am not hiker, just a person whose hurt feet has limited my mobility for 20 years. We think these are wonderful boots/shoes.
Reviewed by Maggie from boston on Monday, February 10, 2014Good looking and good price. A little on the narrow side for an extra wide. Not warm. Good depth for orthotic.
Reviewed by Jgreenflash from Connecticut on Tuesday, December 31, 2013The time came to replace my 12 year old beloved hiking boots. I went to Sierra Traders sale page and made my selection of the New Balance boot. I got a terrific buy on them.
They were comfortable at the first wearing! They are exceptionally good looking. I love the convenience of the lacing on hooks. (I don't know what they are called, but they are like the hooks on ice skate lacing.) I have literally worn them everywhere since they arrived. I ordered a half size up so I could wear them with heavy socks and I am glad that i did. I require a large toe box, and these did not disappoint.
Reviewed by Nina from Rhode Island on Wednesday, December 18, 2013Best boots ever. No break in time at all. Wear them all day. They will be my go to boots all winter. Sorry they are all sold out I would buy another pair for back up. Thank you Sierra Trading Post for top quality at best price!!
Reviewed by GS hiker from New England on Wednesday, December 11, 2013I have a wide foot but could never get a wide New Balance shoe to fit. I decided to give the 2E width a chance. They fit the minute I put them on. For the colder weather, they are great for doing outside chores, walking dogs, wearing with thicker socks, etc. My husband put a leather sealer on them for added weather protection. I haven't tried them on a trail yet, but I would only wear them on the level sections of the AT. They are not high enough to give me the ankle support that I need going up or down a mountain. That being said, I liked the shoe so much that I bought another pair to have when these wear out.
