Love my 978s so much 26/02/2013
NathanI 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:
