Quick summary: These are worth the price, incredibly sturdy, won't let you down I bought a pair of these 2.5 years ago and have hiked several hundred miles in them (no exaggeration, I hike like it's my second job). These boots LAST. I'm honestly amazed they haven't broken down from all the wear and tear I've put them through. I get tons of compliments on them because of the beautiful red color. The bottom of the boot is interesting because Oboz is the only company I know that rounds out the heel. What that means is instead of a boxy type of boot bottom like you see with every other type of hiking boot, this style rolls with your forward motion. It took a little getting used to in the beginning but now I find I can't go back to my other pair of hiking boots because the gait isn't as smooth. I generally prefer hiking in these boots to hiking in shoes because I roll my ankles a lot, and I find these boots have excellent ankle support that prevents me from ankle injuries when I'm out on the trails. The tread on the bottom of the boot holds better than I expected. For all of the hikes I've put it through the tread hasn't worn down to the point that the boots need to be replaced. That part alone makes this purchase worthwhile. The tread on my favorite trail runners is already bald and I use those shoes far less than these boots; these things are made to last. These boots are expensive but they are a classic case of "you get what you pay for." The only minor complaint I have is the toe box, sometimes even when I tight-lace my boots my feet will still slide forward and impact my toenails on downhill slopes. But that's my only complaint. These boots have hiked everything from Half Dome in Yosemite to Kanarra Falls in Utah to Cactus 2 Clouds in Palm Springs to Death Valley and beyond. They can handle any terrain wet or dry. I've hiked with them up snowy mountain tops and in monsoons, they handle very well in snow and rain and kept my feet dry. My only other piece of advice is to go up a half size when you order them because these puppies run a little small. Excellent hiking boots overall, I'm a very happy customer!

I love these Oboz hiking boots. They fit really well. I have put them on in the house only so far, bc it's crazy snow & ice here right now in the middle of winter, so I'm outside in my tall waterproof winter boots. I feel I will love them, though, in walks & hikes. I think I've finally got an insight about why it's so hard for me to find shoes that really fit. I bought these in the wide option. It seems to make all the difference. I'll be checking now to see if wide works for me. I bought the 8.5, and that is typically my size now, and they are excellent. Support and also room for my toes! Plus, I love the color, Rio Red. They are so cute! I waited about a year for these to be back in stock. Then Zappos let me know they were in. I am so delighted I bought them! I look forward to warmer weather and longer hikes!

As with all that f the Oboz shoes/boots that I have tried on, they have a very stiff sole which requires getting used to. The arch support is above average. I ended up keeping the Oboz Sawtooth Low BDry because it’s support is equal and it requires considerably less space to pack.

These are exactly what I am looking for, but they are about half a size too small, and I wear an 11, so there is nothing bigger to try. They provide support and structure, good treads, without being at all bulky. Unfortunately, these will go back and my search continues!
Zappos Reviewer on February 09, 2019
I got a pair of these to try on and compare with other hiking boots. And these boots are awesome! They look great and feel great. They are light weight and the laces are very long, plus they come with an extra pair of laces. They have a higher ankle for increased support and comfort, as well as keeping stuff out of the boots better. There is webbing that comes up the tongue to help increase the water proofing depth, i did not test the water proofing capabilities, but they seem like you should be able to fully submerge the top of your foot and still be ok. Great shoes but ended up going with something else due to price.

i usually purchase keen because i have a wide foot and a high arch, but keen sneakers are not what they used to be, they seem to wear out quicker than they did a few years ago. this shoe provides excellent arch support and has a wide enough toe box to accommodate for the width of my feet. comfortable out of the box. i have only worn them around the house, so i may update this review later.

I ordered them in my size 10.5 and they were too small. I ordered an 11 and they were perfect. I would order a half size bigger than u wear in keen or Merrill

Overall the boots look sleek and feel comfortable, although they are much smaller than the size and I had to return them. The pink accents over navy blue is very cute; the brown patch on the other hand look sort of strange. Would like to try this brand again.

These shoes have more room than any that I've purchased before. I have a very wide foot and there's still a little bit of room. I normally wear a 10.5 Keen that fits my toes fine but my heel would slide around and produce blisters no matter what sock I wore. I even added heel lift to no avail. These boots capture my heel great and have plenty of room in the toe as well as the width. I could envision wearing a thick merino wool sock in these boots and I still feel that they would fit. The arch support seems great and I am noticing a stiffness in the sole that I have never noticed in a hiking boot that gives me confidence that the fit will remain adequate after the boots break in.

Love these shoes. I am a big fan of Oboz. This is my third pair. These are the most comfortable shoes I own. The have great stability to minimize pronating or supinating, deep ridges in the sole are perfect for the trail and they are waterproof. The only thing I don't like about these shoes is the metal lace catcher at the top of the laces. It's easier to just have a hole to put the lace through. The shoes are great for everyday wear, and the laces are more square and not subject to untying while walking around.

I ordered theses boots after asking a bunch of friends of mine for recommendations. I had never heard of them before but figured I'd give them a shot. I went on a 10 day trip to Iceland in September and wore these boots EVERYDAY. I did not feel any discomfort at all, or any need to break them in. I can also attest to them being extremely waterproof. I was walking around one of the geothermal pools and ended up sinking into clay. My shoe was completely covered so I ended up going to this nearby stream (the water was actually warm due to the geothermal) and suck my boot in the water with my foot still in. I did not feel any water seep into the shoe and continued to clean off the clay. I'd would 100% recommend these if you are thinking about hiking shoes! Now, I am also not an avid hiker but my friends who originally recommended this brand are hikers!

These Bridgers fit well, and they come in my size - I need a 10 1/2 in athletic shoes and hiking boots. I wear these for my winter boots in Chicagoland. They are warm, and the tread on the sole is excellent. They could do with a bit more cushioning in the toe box area, though (this is something I find consistently with Oboz - they could just use a little more cush!). I love the ankle support that the mid-rise gives my ankles. The insole of these boots has exceptional arch support - I usually have to change out the insoles and use a custom orthotic in every pair of athletic shoes and hiking boots I've ever had, but I have not had to do that with these Bridgers! Yay!
Adrienne from Chicagoland on January 24, 2019
I have wide feet with high arch. Bought these in wide and they are just barely wider than a typical shoe but seemed to work. However, toes hitting front of shoe as they are 1/2 size small. Zappos didn’t have larger size in wide. Too bad, if you have a high arch and need hiking shoes these are great.
Zappos Reviewer on January 23, 2019
Rugged, durable, super comfortable boots right out of the box! Excellent quality boot—would highly recommend.
Zappos Reviewer on January 23, 2019
Not bad looking (for a hiking boot), plenty of room in the toe box, and good ankle collar. But feels a bit "hard" underfoot. I need more cushioning for bad knees, and it won't accommodate an extra layer of cushioning. May order wider width to see if that will work.
Sue from Newark DE on January 22, 2019
Like others have written, this is a great hiking boot, but the ankle support area presses in on the outside of your leg, above the ankle bone. So cute and comfortable except for that.
Zappos Reviewer on January 22, 2019
Could be a little cushier. But they are a big help. (I have two new knees.) I am using them in the Keen boots.
Zappos Reviewer from Sandpoint, Idaho on January 18, 2019
I am a 10.5 in keen and Merrill, these felt tight, but wrap around your foot and feel different. If they were a little bigger they would have been great
Zappos Reviewer on January 17, 2019
I really like how my feet feel "hugged" (supported) in these; particularly in the heels. These have more arch support than I'm used to...I need the support, just not sure whether I will adapt well or not. I've only hiked in them once so still giving them a shot.
Zappos Reviewer on January 12, 2019
I LOVE these boots. My feet are very sensitives and these boots are perfect. Cute, light and comfortable.
Zappos Reviewer on January 11, 2019
I did order a half size up and Glad that I did . I will primarily wear these in the winter and got the half size up to allow for thicker socks . The red in the picture is more of an earth tone rust . Very comfortable walking around , like walking on pillows . Good construction and a handsome shoe overall .

I need a boot that is truly waterproof. I'm not walking through standing water but, with the humidity in Texas, I am walking through wet grass every morning. I purchased these in May of 2018. By December 2018 one of them had started to leak. They are great looking and are otherwise in really good condition but now, my sock stays wet. In effect, they are no better than a tennis shoe for me at this point. If waterproof is your priority then I wouldn't recommend these to you.
JM from Houston on January 11, 2019
I really like Oboz. These are my third pair and they are as great as the other styles I have. I have several foot and joint issues and usually need to swap out the inner soles of the shoes I buy. But not with Oboz. I can wear them as they come. This style looks more like a chunky street/walking shoe but still delivers the positive structure, stability and support that I need. I especially like the lacing system that allows the shoe to open right up when unlaced making it easier to get on and off. I’m glad I got them.

I have a narrow heel and wide toes. These fit well. I went a half size up so I could use my Birkenstock inserts. So far they feel great!
