New Balance designed the Men's 978 Hiking Shoe for rugged on-trail strolls (and full-on long, up-and-down hikes). Tough nubuck leather with a waterproof breathable Gore-Tex membrane fends off the elements and still lets perspiration escape. Sturdy N-Durance rubber outsoles offer excellent footing, while Azorb cushioning inside provides shock absorption. And New Balance even built its Rollbar technology into the shoe, which means you get extra lateral support and stability. For boosted comfort, a dual-density collar cushions the foot in the boot's interior.


A rugged country walker with the stability of ROLLBAR and the protection of ROCK STOP combined with GORE-TEX for exploring adventurous environments.
