After 6 months of wear I can tell you this will be my first and last pair of Oboz. I was directed to this brand for the arch support and it met requirements for a waterproof rugged trail type shoe. This shoe broke down very fast and begun to develop a bad odor due to little to no anti microbial treatment. The waterproofing has also failed and shoes are leaking. I have confirmed it is not due to perspiration as well. Also for what these shoes retail at they should have Gore Tex and not a knock off membrain. The soles have been the one thing that has held up the best. The arch support insole provided great support but after 5 months of wear it too is ready for replacement. Simply put I have worn several different brands and have found others that have outlasted these by two to three times as long. I am sure this shoe could be improved and still has great potential but as it stands right now they don't make the grade.

Best shoes. I wear them with an wool sock that fits me perfectly too. I wear them all the time into New York City showing houses and when I'm shopping at target I make sure I have them on because I can move quickly and surefooted in them. I hiked once or twice in them and I walked to my gym . I walk more now than I used to since I bought them a year and a half ago I love them and recommend them to everybody. They are nowhere near as heavy as those ankle hiking boots made of leather probably wear mine five days week.

The last two years i have been wearing the Keen low WP Bryce for men. Best shoes I have ever had. But they do not make them anymore so I have ordered and tried about 8 different pairs from Zappos. This shoe looks good and feels good. Lots of toe room, not too stiff, very comfortable fit for me. But...... I had been reading a couple reviews here and there about how these shoes can be very slippery on certain wet materials. I had a Merrell a while back that did this and fell a few times coming out of a mall and slipping on wet granite. Not good. So I put a bit of water on my kitchen floor which is varnished old pine. I shoved my foot into the puddle with my keen and it stopped as soon as the shoe hit the floor. Moved it around and it was a good grip in every position. Then I strapped on the Oboz and tried the same thing. Whoosh, it was like slick ice. Not good. and its too bad because I love the shoe. But I am getting into my late 60s now and falling is not a good idea these days. God that sounds old. BTW I am ending up with either a Merrell WP rover or a Hoka One One Low Tor Summit. I love that Zappos allow you to do this ordering, try, and return. Much better than waiting to get a shoe salesperson to notice you.

Second pair of Oboz hikers. Little break in required. Great boot! These boots hold up well to abuse while on the trail. Great elk hunting boot for my fellow hunters.

Great Zappos service. Even greater boots. Hikable right out of the box. Sized right for light socks. Go a half size bigger for cold weather (heavy socks).

These shoes seemed too high cut for my ankle, taking time to break in, but that was me, may not be so for everyone. Once the break in was over they were comfortable and supportive, however the soles were not good on wet surfaces. My only real gripe with these was the soles broke down too rapidly. I wore for daily 1 hr walks and both the supportive insole and outsole broke down within 4 months. Way too fast for shoes costing this much, imo.

The Tamaracks have Superior support, which to me means little torsion flex. Minimalist, overly flexible shoes wear my feet out in a short time. Walking over rocks and other uneven surfaces is handled very well with the Oboz. The soles are not as sticky-grippy as most other hikers, which should help them last longer. On the other hand that clould make these Oboz a little more slippery when wet.

This is my first Oboz purchase, honestly I had never heard this brand before until I went to a store to try on Keen and a sales person also brought these shoes. I need wide toe box which Keen worked great but the Keen also had wider heel area so my heels keep coming out. I sized down, tried to tie the lace differently but that did not work. Oboz on the other hand, worked perfectly! Wide enough toe box, narrower heel area so my heels stay comfortably! Another thing I want to mention is this has excellent arch support unlike any other hiking shoes. I do not need to put my insole. I absolutely love these shoes! Everyday walk, hike, even to work on rainy day, this pair makes my feel super happy! Of course I want to thank Zappos for an outstanding service as usual!

I love these boots. I wore them on a six mile hike right away with a medium weight wool sock. They were very comfortable. I love the color too!

To begin, these boots are awesome. Merrill and Keen better take note. They are very comfortable right out of the box! Very little break in time. Your heel fits snug into the heel pocket when laced, but do not over tighten laces. The only drawback, and this applies to all "waterproof" boots, is the fact that your feet will sweat under heavy load. Waterproof doesn't actually mean sweat is allowed out. These boots are great! Use caution when walking on slippery surfaces. These boots are ice skates. I am not sure if this is because of the different compounds used or design, but you will find yourself windmilling if not careful.

I was a little put off by the price. However after hiking zion, capital reef, bryce and these bad boys keep the toes comfy and the ankles WELL supported. BEST BOOT IVE EVER PURCHASED.

They fit and feel like Merrell's of old. Solid comfortable footbed, rugged outsole and breathable. They run big so I would recommend selecting 1/2 size smaller than you normally would wear.

I have owned the Oboz Sawtooth for about 9 months. I have never had a hiking shoe wrap my foot so comfortably. Great support whether I'm working in my woodworking shop or hiking with my lab.

The shoes arrived extremely fast to my APO address. I only tried the shoes on and so far they feel and look great. Shoe construction looks well made and the color is great. Shoes are light weight. Hope they will last a year in the extremely hot desert environment that I am in. If not, I will definitely post another review.

I've used the Traverse Low BDRY during extended expeditions that entailed rugged off-trail and on-trail terrain. The shoe is built rugged while still allowing ample comfort in order to put in long days and mileages. There are very few seems in the construction of the shoe which tailors itself well to the added durability and lifespan. The toe box has ample room and I found the shoe to run about 1/2 larger than advertised. The heel cup is best suited for average to wide foot volumes. Because of the purpose built design in regard to durability, the weight and agility of the shoe comes at a loss compared to a standard trail runner. I found the shoe had ample traction in all conditions with good lifespan.

These boots are very nice. Nice high quality. The arch support is better than most. The bottoms of my feet are a little hard so I placed a Dr Scholls basic insert to offer me more padding on the bottoms of my feet. There isn't much cushion on the bottoms. There is more toe room than in other boots, which I need! They should offer larger than size 11 for women. I'm glad these ran a tad longer than others so I could fit into the largest size they offer, at this time. They are really high quality, which I appreciate. I hope they bring out more colors, like purple, tan, Royal Blue, etc...for women!

Great hiking shoe. I wear them on day hikes with a medium sized pack and approaches for climbs with a pack full of gear and a rope. They dry out quickly and breath really well, so great for crossing water and in the heat. I like the beefy bottom too, grips the trail well. I'd recommend them.

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.
