    For the outdoor enthusiast, or the West Coaster looking for an escape from the rain, the 978 offers superior cushioning and a durable GORE-TEX® lining. For those that require rear-foot stability and motion control, the 978 also offers New Balance's ROLLBAR® support system, making this shoe suitable for both overpronating and neutral feet. The higher cut also gives the 978 more ankle support than a standard hiking shoe.
