I just did my first hike with my new Oboz on the Brown Creek Trail. Six quick miles. I switched to Oboz hoping for more comfort and better arch support. They came through for me and I love the fit and comfort. I highly recommend the Oboz sawtooth low dry My feet stayed cooler and my gait improved. You will not regret giving these a try.

These are comfortable. Just beware, they are not gortex nor have any waterproofing. I ended up with soggy feet after a surprise thunder shower. Arch support is better than average but not excellent.

I got these shoes for a moderate hiking tour in Croatia. I wanted stability, protection, and comfort. These shoes really grip the ground, and seem to help me maintain my balance. They are relatively cool, and so far very comfortable. So far I've only worn them for an hour at a time of brisk walking. I have small, narrow heels and spreading toes, so I am hard to fit. These work well for me.

Very slippery shoe when exposed to wet surfaces i.e. city streets and pavement. I called Oboz and they recommended cleaning the sole with alcohol and a wire brush to remove a manufacturing film that some shoes are shipped with but that did not help. I would not trust these shoes on city sidewalks let alone on trails where there are wet rocks. What a shame. Such an awesome shoe!

These hiking shoes are extremely comfortable, light yet rugged. The footbed provides wonderful comfort and stability and buffers the rocky terrain under your feet. I put these on out of the box and hiked 6 miles without any trouble. I will be buying another pair.

I normally wear an 8.5, but in hiking shoes size up to 9 or in these I had to go with 9.5. I bought these before Zappos carried Oboz brand and just have to leave a review for you on these wonderful boots. They do not make my feet like big, they are comfortable beyond belief, no blisters or hot spots. I did a 12 mile hike in these and my feet were not fatigued or sore in any way. I have ball of foot pain and had no issues with these boots even at the 12th mile. These boots have a springy, yet stable sole. Great quality, detailed workmanship, good-looking. I put my own orthotic in for more arch support. My only issues: they do not breath well on hot, sweaty, humid days. And the grip although great in dry conditions, was inordinately slippery on smooth wet rocks. I hope Oboz can fix this on future productions of this boot. Even so, I highly recommend them.

My husband has been wearing Oboz for a few years and loves them so I was glad to be able to finally order a ladies' Oboz. These are really nice shoes--more like a light hiking shoe than a running shoe and perfect for walking in town and in the woods. They are light weight, comfortable and fun. They were a little stiff at first at the ankle, so I don't recommend a long hike until they are broken in a little. The arch support is pretty good although not as good as the Patagonia shoes. I usually wear custom orthotics but did not need them with the Oboz because it has pretty good arch support built in. I recommend this shoe and would buy it again.

The foot bed in this shoe is great and they are so cute. The problem is that the area around the ankle feels like cardboard and has rubbed deep hurtful gashes on my ankle and achilles. This is my umpteenth pair of hiking boots and I have not had this kind of problem since the seventies. I started on short hikes, bought thicker socks, and tried different lacing strategies. They need a more cushioned area around the ankle and probably a dip around the heel like one has on Keens and on running shoes. After a month, I am writing these Oboes off as a loss shopping for replacement shoes.

I like the looks of the shoes, except for the tire like treads for soles. I have another Oboz shoe that fits well in a 9½. This style felt a tad big. I thought it felt heavy on my foot as well. So, I am sending them back.

I have a pair of the Women's Oboz Sawtooth shoe which are very comfortable but the Low BDry do not fit the same. They seem shorter than my regular size 10 and the toe box does not seem as generous. Unfortunately I am returning them and trying to find a vendor with a larger size in stock. Zappos does not have the next size up.

These shoes are very comfortable in both walking and running and cycling. I am 6'4 and it's hard for me to find the right shoe of any kind and this is pretty good of all the many different brands I have tried.

I hike about 20+ miles a week, and trail shoes come any way you like them these days. These Oboz seem to be the closest to a real hiking boot, in a shoe. The sole is thick with great tread and offers incredible stability, which may seem stiff compared to trail running shoes. There's a lot of arch support and the molded rubber toe even seems to be tougher than most. This is a really rugged hiker in a little/light shoe. I'd say it's even more stable than the Patagonia Drifter, but lighter and not as bulky. On the other end of the spectrum is the very popular Merrill Moab, with it's extremely flexible and bendable sole. I hike very rocky/gravelly trails so I personally prefer the stability of the Oboz. On the other hand, they're a little stiff for every-day use for me, and I only wear them hiking. Hope this helps.

I liked everything about these shoes except the back dug into my ankle by the Achilles tendon and that was a dealbreaker for me. You can see in the photo how the back of the shoe angles in, and I found it to be uncomfortable.

I bought these to wear while working in desert conditions, and the soles held up very well in the terrain. Next I wore them for a week of trekking on Crete and found them super comfy, excellent grip on rocks, and very comfortable. I'll definitely buy Oboz again.

I really wanted to like these shoes. They fit great with a roomy toe box. I'm very disappointed because the front of the sole that wraps over the toe has started to come loose after only 30 days. They are stylish and very comfortable but I'm returning them as I don't expect the sole to start coming unglued so soon. These were my first hiking shoes and I put about 30 miles on them and never got them wet either.

This shoe rocks! First time owning Oboz and will probably never have to buy another pair. I hiked and rock climbed for 5 days in Canyonlands and Arches N.P. Shoes gripped on every surface and were incredibly comfortable. I whitewater rafted and got them completely soaked. I was afraid I ruined them (not supposed to be completely waterproof) but after getting home and putting a couple of rags inside them they were like new overnight. No wetness or dampness inside the shoe. The shoe does seem a little roomier in the toe area than normal. Thanks Zappos and Oboz!

Nice shoes overall. Compared to other Oboz I own (Sawtooth Mid and Contour), these are not as sturdy or supportive. I need good arches and these are not the best. However, people with less problematic feet should find these super comfortable and versatile. They are very lightweight.

I wanted to like these, and I did when I first put them on. They fit perfectly, and had good cushion and support and I liked the styling. Unfortunately, after wearing them around the house for an hour or so I started feeling them rub the top of one foot at the joint at the base of my big toe, right at the edge of the laces. With thinner socks (I was wearing thick hiking socks) they might be fine, or even with a half size larger. Or maybe not and it could be just the way they're designed that they hit the wrong spot on my foot, which is on the wider side. I'm sending them back and trying a different brand.
