Oboz

Oboz Logo
The Oboz crew is made up of a couple of old school tele skiers, a kayaker who can claim first descent down the Ocoee, a former NOLS instructor that's familiar with going weeks without bathing, and an obsessed climber turned avid biker. This odd bunch managed to connect throughout the decades of being in the outdoor industry and decided to join up in 2007 to start Oboz.

Combine the words "outside" and "Bozeman" and you´ve got "Oboz". Moreover, you've got something that speaks volumes about the company and their priorities. Outside is where their heads are, dreaming of the next peak to climb or river to float. And Bozeman, Montana is where they live, play, and of course, work on making Oboz the best shoes out there. Bozeman is one of the great places to enjoy and be inspired by the outdoors. Oboz is not just two words combined, but a way of thinking, living and doing that defines the company, the shoes and the people who wear them.

The phrase "True to the Trail" is the motto at Oboz. Oboz shoes are designed to be used on the trail to help people get into the wilderness - shoes for trail running, hiking, backpacking, approaching crags, scrambling and general exploration of wild places. The folks at Oboz are passionate about these activities. When they aren't talking about shoes at the office, they’re probably discussing the snow conditions up at Bridger Bowl or their latest adventure on their bikes. Looking to protect their favorite getaways, Oboz tries to minimize their carbon footprint and support organizations and causes that improve the state of the environment.

My 1rst pair of Oboz. Had them about a week. My Merrill's which, amazingly enough, Ive had for 5 yrs just started coming apart. Like like the Merrill's, I went up 1/2 size from my normal shoe size. They were a little tight at 1rst but after a day or 2 of wear and putting shoe horns in them they are perfect now. I can honestly say I can walk in these all day. I haven't done any actual woods hiking in them but I have worn them on the street all day with good comfort. They seem to be solid built. Time will tell the longevity of them.

I was a little concerned at first because they smelled really bad after I took them off. I don't have smelly feet, so I was a bit concerned. After wearing them a few days, it has gone away, so it must have been related to the materials. The fit is pretty good and they are pretty comfortable for me.

I thought these shoes were great — at first. Just walking around town breaking them in, I had no problems. However, two days into my five day hiking trip, I began to feel a distinct pain in both second toes, and the toenail beds appeared bruised when I took my socks off. I showed my doctor, who told me that the toe box was too short and one of the toenails would probably fall off in a few weeks and sure enough, that’s happening. So if you have a second toe that’s even slightly longer than your big toe, choose another shoe. Otherwise these shoes were great. Sad to have to return them.

I am a woman with wide feet. Men's medium was just a little too narrow and EE was not available. Very disappointed as, otherwise, I think I would have liked them.

After blowing out my Ahnu's and being forced to replace them I can tell you it took me 6 trips to retail stores trying on everything from Keens to Salomons, and then something I never do, ordering shoes online, 9 pairs in total from several retailers, 4 of those from Zappos. By the time I received the first pair of Oboz Bridgers however, I knew I wanted them, but it took me a few tries to get the size right. I usually wear a 9.5 or 10 (us) Medium so I always start with the 9.5, which in this case for me was just slightly too narrow for my right foot, which is a little wider than my left, and the 9.5 was also just a little too short for my left foot, which is a half size longer than my right foot, so I returned those and ordered a 10. The 10's were just right for my left foot (which is a 10), but didn't seem any wider than the 9.5's, so they still didn't work for my right foot. Returned those, ordered a 10 EE. Just a footnote, I have never purchased a EE width shoe, so it seems these run just a little narrower than most, that said, I think if your feet happen to be symmetrical and true to size, so are these boots. The 10 EE's arrived a couple of days ago and I have to tell you, they fit perfect. Took them out of the box, put them on, wore them for 14 hours the fist day and my feet felt great at the end of the day. That's the same feeling I had the day I bought the Ahnus, I knew the moment I slipped them on, so I know these are going to be great boots as well. Honestly, I had all but given up and was getting seriously disappointed that I couldn't find anything to replace those old Ahnus, but I think these Oboz are going to fit the bill perfectly, so much so that I just ordered a second pair to keep on the shelf. Gotta love Zappos, still be walking around in broken old boots if it wasn't for these guys. One more note, the gray and blue "slate" option are really great looking boots, sadly, they don't offer them in a 10 EE :(, so I opted for the "sudan" also a great looking boot, just a little more common color combo, still, no complaints.

My husband moved from a Vasque which he likes and still wears to these Oboz and loves them. I bought the sneakers for him since he loves the boots so much. I also bought another pair of boots as he is hard on his boots.

Had to go up a half size because the top is so rigid could not get my high arch in them. Like the moving strap idea though it is really bulky, not laying on top of shoe when it is forward - it stands up/out quite a bit. Plus has a useless small strap on top of the bigger strap so it sticks out even more. I think the overhead shot is very misleading. Looks and feels like crocs. Very light weight but not as cool (in temperature or looks as I had hoped). Not as much arch support as my usual keens but not a problem so far. Want a slide with my toes covered and was looking to replace "whisper keen" slide. Moveable strap is a great idea but this one needs improvement.

Has a hi molded in Arch that made it unwearable for me .. it made it feel like I was balancing on top of a curtain rod where the arch is .. it made my foot you like it was curved the wrong direction like a half moon ..

These felt like they would be great hiking boots. Really deep treads, not too heavy, and good support. The toe box doesn't feel quite as roomy as keens or teva/ahnu, but they also didn't slide around on my heels. They felt comfortably snug, with a lot of contouring inside. I think they are just a little more shoe than I want for an upcoming trip, looking for a more versatile sneaker-type. I will keep these in mind if I ever need hiking shoes, though!

It is true to my running shoe size - 1/2 size over my street shoe size. I really like the feel of this shoe - rollng motion with a rounded heel. it is very light but seems very sturdy but still flexible.

These shoes are sturdy, yet lightweight, and I think would be awesome for hiking and climbing, as they are designed for. They are very comfortable and the fit is true-to-size, and there was ample room around the toes. However, I tried them on without socks, and I felt like if I wore them with more than a very thin sock, I would need a larger/wider shoe - an athletic sock would have made them just a little too tight. Full disclosure.... these are a great shoe, but I am returning them only because they weren't what I was looking for (I already have hiking shoes). I am taking a summer class in an industrial setting that requires closed-toed shoes, so a lightweight sneaker would be sufficient, but I'm having trouble finding great-fitting sneakers since Keen discontinued the Coronado. Most cute sneakers are cute on a smaller foot, but look more like skis on my size 10 feet! Converse, Keds, and PF Flyers are too narrow to be comfortable on me, and they enhance the ski effect! These Oboz looked great on my feet, and I will not hesitate to buy another pair of them if and when I need hikers.

Unbelievable ‘out of the box’ experience. Had short notice of hike of Camelback Mountain. So I had to do what I have never done, wear boots right out of the box. We hiked from one side to the other without a blister or rub spot of any kind. Amazing boot and fix! Great job Oboz !!!

Bought these with the hope that they would fit. The boot itself has no size marking on it that I could discern, so I am not even sure that these are size 14. Either way, between a half and full size too small and narrow. I don't have wide feet and these felt tight. Would recommend a full size larger and consider a wide boot if you usually wear medium.

I have some boots that are fairly comfortable, but I bought these in the hope that they would be the perfect pair, however, they really weren't much nicer than the ones I have, so I returned them. If I had not already had boots that were fairly comfortable, I probably would have kept them. I wear a size 10 medium width and they fit well.

I ordered the silver grey and returned it for the Brindel which I liked better. This is my second Sawtooth but "low" for the summer . I love everything esp the comfort of these hiking shoes. If youve never owned a pair of hiking boots dont think they are clumsy or heavy they offer great support can be very comfortable for walking dogs or long hikes. I esp like them in the winter in Colorado walking our 4 dogs. Much better in slippery snowy weather and then on to summer days!

With hiking socks, too small. Returned. Seems sturdy, but also ordered Merrell Siren Edge. Need 1/2 size larger in the Merrell, too, but liked it better for fit and weight. I'm day hiking with only picnic supplies in the backpack. The Merrells are lighter, which is great for travel packing and and light hiking.

This is a nice looking shoe, but the brand seems to have changed its sizing .... I am a big fan of Oboz -- I have have owned a number of pairs. So I was surprised to find that this shoe in my regular size 9 was so narrow and small that I could barely get my foot into it. I tried a 9 1/2 ... still uncomfortable. So, now I guess I wear Oboz size 10 -- although I worry about the amount of extra room at the toe.

I've got bad feet and knees but hike a lot in the desert...lot's of rough trails, climbing, rocks, etc. While these aren't going to win any beauty contests, they really are great hikers right out of the box. I picked them because of the price point, aggressive soles, and foot beds. They are very true to their description and really did the job on a bunch of hikes in parks and around Indian ruins last week. In the West, you need a boot with grippy treads as the sand on rocks slides easily and a very breathable boot as it's hot and the hikes tend to be long. I usually put expensive liners in my shoes and boots to help with stability and foot comfort, but I don't think I need them with these boots - very stable, not too soft, and my feet felt great after all day in them the first day. I'd like a little tougher toe bumper (like Keens) but other than that they are a great boot for long hikes. I have to say too that these are tremendous grips on the soles...really stuck to the rocks and gave me total confidence in hiking with them.
