New Balance 978 Walking
Blaze your own trail in the men’s 978 trail walking shoe. Leading with some of our best trail technology, this adventure companion features a durable nubuck leather upper that forms a protective barrier around your feet, given flexibility by a gusseted tongue that allows for freedom of movement. The lower unit features ABZORB responsive midsole cushioning, a 3/4 Rock Stop plate for added protection against roots and rocks, and a Rollbar posting system to help reduce rear-foot movement. Last but not least, Gore-Tex® material on the upper helps resist water while letting your feet breathe.

- Gusseted tongue sewn in place to keep debris out for midfoot protection
- Nubuck leather upper
- Polyurethane insert provides excellent cushioning for all-day comfort
