    • 0.3 product Nathan 2013-02-26" 1.0 5.0 5 I love my 978s. So much. They're not like other NB shoes in that they're heavy and waterproof, but the grip totally makes up for it. They've got a different feel than most runners - I like more arch support, and they've got a snugger fit - but the waterproofing is just unreal. They've got a built-in Gore-tex sock that keeps your own socks dry, even if it's like Vancouver wet. It only snows a couple days a year down here, but they were just great in the snow - awesome grip, even on the ice.

      Customer Service Comments:
      Awesome service. Terrell helped me out and absolutely knows his stuff (he's got a pair too). Had my width (4E) in stock where most stores don't.
