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.

I bought these for my husband. He liked them but they rubbed oddly on the side of his heel. He has narrow feet and heels. Comfort is more important to him than appearances, so these have to go back.

This boot was cheaply made. Oboz was making good boots, really good boots, don't know what happened there. But this boot is not made for anyones trail. No support.

This is the outdoor shoe company to buy. I used to buy Merrill but the quality was less and less. Oboz makes the best fitting, most comfortable outdoor shoe today. I wear these daily and the fit stays and the shoe is overall very durable. Thanks Zappos for having these available.

Shoe was short and toe box was tight. I assumed that I could order my regular size in this brand but I was wrong.

The fit and size were perfect, as I have wide feet. The wide size accommodated that. I have not yet hiked with them yet, but when I do I will update how they felt in use.

I love the way these shoes look. Because I'll be wearing them with thicker hiking socks, I sized up a half size, and they fit great. It's a bit hard to loosen the laces, but that's not a deal-breaker for me. Also, I think they will be warm-weather boots only. I tend to run cold, but my feet felt quite warm in these, maybe too warm for warm-weather hiking. But I'll get plenty of use from them during fall/winter/early spring.

Both my feet are 10 3/4" long, maybe 10 7/8" long, in medium thickness socks, yet this size 12 Oboz Sypes Mid Leather B-DRY is just big enough with thin and medium socks. I also wear 12's in Firebrand II. Go figure.

These are nice looking shoes that are comfortable out of the box, but durability stinks--the lining behind the heel starting falling apart within the first 4-5 weeks I had them, and after 5-6 months of wear the toe rands are separating from the leather, the stitching is coming apart, and one shoe has a huge hole where the leather has pulled away from the rubber sole. I'm fairly tough on shoes, but these are hands down the least durable pair of hiking footwear I've tried. No more Oboz for me.

I am an avid hiker, but I also have myriad foot problems (bunion, hammer toe, tibial tendinitis, overpronation.) I need a sturdy, water-proof, yet comfortable boot with plenty of room in the toe box and lots of motion control. These boots fill the bill--but ONLY because I ordered one full size up from my usual size 9. These shoes run small, and even a half size larger was not enough space to put my essential Powerstep orthotics in and still not feel like my feet were jammed into them. If you don't have a lot of foot issues, I would still order a half size up minimum. I don't give this 5 stars for comfort simply because these boots have a lot of support in them, and so there is going to be a little break in time. I think in a couple of weeks they are going to be super comfortable, too.

Too narrow in forefoot and toe box for my foot. Otherwise, this a fantastic hiking shoe with a very nice fit and support to the heel and mid foot.

These shoes are perfect for me: slightly wide toe box, somewhat stiff sole, good support for real hiking but also not too bulky to wear around town if needed, cute style

These are my favorite shoes and I have been waiting for the correct size for over a year. There were issues with supply. Anyway, I am so relieved that I got some new to use when the ones I am wearing are exhausted. I tried to fix another pair with Shoe Goo, and that worked for a while...

Really difficult to get on with the tops being so high and rigid. The tongue doesn't open enough to easily get your foot in. Too bad because they look and feel great.

I wore them for a 3 mile winter/spring hike. This year April in northern Minnesota has been very cold. I needed this type of boot to stay warm and dry. The boot comes up higher on my ankle than my standard summer hiking boots. Conditions that day were snow/ ice and wet. The boots were perfect for this weather. No blisters. I’ll be ready to do a much longer hike. They passed the test.

Oboz are my favorite hiking shoe, but these shoes were poorly made and looked and felt cheap— for $145. I would not purchase these. I sent them back. I wondered if they were knockoffs rather than the real deal.

I’ve worn Oboz in another style in size 7.5 wide before. Based on the recommendation since wide isn’t available in this style, I ordered 8 medium. It’s a great fit.

This review is for my friends with challenging feet! I wore these shoes in Iceland in early spring for a week straight right out of the box, they are very comfortable though stiff as you would expect for insulated hiking boots. My other Oboz hiking boots are an 8 and I had to order an 8.5 for this style even with regular medium weight hiking socks. I have long toes & a Morton's neuroma and I appreciate this brand for the wide toe box. My heal is narrow and Oboz works nicely there too. My feet were warm and dry with only one pair of regular socks.
