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.

Unfortunately I couldn't get my foot into the Oboz Sapphire Mid BDry. My feet do not bend well at the big toe joint, and I was unable to get the boot on. I assume that someone with a high instep would have the same problem. The boot just doesn't open up enough. They are lovely looking, but won't work for me. I am unable to comment on Comfort, True to size, True to width, and Arch support.

I loved the look of the boots and they felt like they fit great. However, the ankle was so stiff that it felt like walking in skates. I returned for something more flexible.

Wanted these boots to fit, but they felt too narrow and tight. I never get wide width but that’s what I’d need.

I really like this hiker. I have been comparing it to the Oboz Firebrand II Bdry ASIN: B00439GYQ8. The sole is just a little thinner on the Tamarack, which is okay. The Firebrand has a really thick in the sole. I have also been comparing it to the Bridger Dry high top hiker Oboz Bridger BDRY ASIN: B00FJ2LDXM. That is a great hiker as well. Tamarack is just a tad bland in appearance if that's your issue. The decision comes to these questions: do you want a high top hiker or a low hiker? do you want a very thick sole or moderately thick sole? All are great and will last many years. I suggest trying all three, and see what works best. Zappos has the best return policy.

These are fantastic! I'm a "true" 9, and these fit perfectly. Arch support is excellent, room for my toes (which I like) but comfortably snug everywhere else. Strong grip, good ankle support. Very good quality overall. Extremely pleased. My first pair of Oboz, but definitely not my last.

I'm very happy with my new Oboz winter hikers! My feet are not easy to fit. I need good arch support and a wide toe box. These are great! True to size for me. Very comfortable, good support. I went on a 2 and 1/2 hour hike in the snow with the temp in the 20's for my first time out (I wore them around the house for several hours for a few days first). My feet were warm, comfortable and happy at the end! I kinda wish they were just about an inch higher on my ankles but the comfort of the 6" hight was great and I can wear gaters if need be.

I wanted to love these boots, but the two little points at the top back of the boot dug into the back of my left leg only. The right boot fit perfectly. All other aspects of the left boot fit perfectly. A defective pair? Maybe. Would they break in and become comfortable in time? Maybe. But I really just can't take the risk of being hurt, so back they go. -sigh-

I measure at at true 11 and I have a relatively square toe box. I initially ordered an 11 EE to accommodate, but they weren’t close to a fit. I returned then for an 11.5 EE which fits well. They have as good of an arch support as you will find. Flat footed people would need to change the inserts. They are very well constructed, and I imaging they will be up to any task. I rate them as good on initial comfort. I wouldn’t want them softer to start, because I believe long term durability and fit often results for off the shelf comfort. Ive been wearing them for a couple days wear on graded hard surfaces, and I suggest several days of break-in before taking then on the trail.

Having severely over pronation, I’m always looking for a comfortable motion control shoe, which has some style. These are definitely shoes which give you that and great protection. They accommodate my large orthotics and keep my feet dry during wet weather. I bought 10.5 when I usually wear a 10, because the store didn’t have 10s in stock. These shoes do not feel too big and are very comfortable.

Absolutely marvelous hiking boots! Stylish, cushioned. I have skinny feet and usually wear a size 6, but needed to get a size 6.5 in these boots. They felt great right out of the box. They are not as seriously supportive as more robust hiking boots, but definitely supportive enough and hug the feet very nicely. I am sure I will spend many happy hiking days in them.

Perfect for outdoors. I live in a coastal area and am constantly dealing with rain, sand, mud and wind. I finally gave up trying to wear regular athletic shoes to walk my dog. I like the cut of the shoe as it hugs the ankle area without rubbing, keeping your feet dry through those unexpected mud puddles. Completely waterproof, fast drying, very true to size and comfortable to walk in.

I did not expect to adore this shoe as much as I do. It is wonderful for going anywhere that requires or that you want to do a lot of walking. My feet never hurt, they are incredibly stable and perfect for city or country walks. I find that I am even wearing them in the house now if I’m doing housework and caring things around because of their stability.

The lining was feeling a little droopy after a few years, and Oboz sent me a replacement pair of inner soles! Incredible.

I read a lot about these boots, how warm and dry they keep your feet and how the fit true to size. I am a solid 6.5 in most shoes, but when I tried on the 6.5, they were too tight on my left foot. I was using a thin sock and it just felt too tight for long wear comfort. They are winter boots, no doubt I will wear thick wool socks over the winter and the shoes would be too tight. The sevens were much better. A little big for my right foot, but with thick winter socks, it will be fine. I’ve taken several walks now with the boots and they feel great. Really solid, comfortable. Excellent arch support. I love them and am looking forward to walking sidewalks and trails with my dog over this coming winter.

I bought a pair of Campsters to take on a Grand Canyon float trip. I wore them on the river, on the trail, and around camp. The back strap can be used to secure your foot or moved forward to allow the shoes to slip on easily, a feature they borrowed from Crocs. However, these shoes have more style than a piece of molded plastic while weighing only slightly more. Unlike a more open river sandal, these kept stones and pebbles from getting under my foot - and they offered more protection from stubbed toes while hiking. Now that I'm back, I've got them parked by the door so I can slip them on when I go outside or run errands. Obviously, I love these shoes and have been impressed that they look so good after what they've been through. I like them so much that I bought a "spare" pair when I got back. Hopefully, Bozeman bootmaker Oboz will keep making these.

Been looking for a slip on outdoor shoe for some time. Tried a couple of pairs of Merrell Jungle Mocs, but always found the toe box too constraining. I like Altras because of the toe box. This shoe for me has good room in the toe box area and a snug fit in the heel. First pair of Oboz, but plan to look at some other models.

Felt great. Needed almost no time to break them in! First hike in them was an 8 mile hike with a lot of elevation change and my feet came out great. Would recommend these for sure, especially if you have narrow feet.

Love these hikers! They fit my average to wide foot perfectly, although I had to go up a half size (normally I am a 9.5, but sometimes 9 in boots, but I needed the 10 in these). I had tried these and the waterproof version in at REI. Oddly, the waterproof ones run bigger, but the arch was in the wrong place for my feet. When I sized up in the non-waterproof version, they fit perfectly. I’ve been hiking in these regularly for the last few weeks and I love them!!! They hug my feet even better than the beloved Keens I had been hiking in before—they don’t collect pebbles, which the wider Keens did.

I am a 9.5 in sneakers and most shoes, Sketchers is what I wear normally. I bought these in a 9.5 and a 10. The 9.5 fit just right but was a bit snug in the toe area. Not super snug but enough to the point where my toes moderately brushed the front, which when walking for longer periods can be an issue. Also with a thick sock the 9.5 is not so great. Also, the 9.5 hit the arch of my foot in an odd way that was starting to make it ache a bit when trying them on. The 10 was great, I have some extra toe room and can wear thick socks without them feeling too tight. Even with regular socks they are not too big though. I recommend going up half a size if you want a bit more room. That being said, the front part of the boots do widen out when you go up in size, but not enough that my feet felt huge in them. While this does run true to size, like I said go up a half size if you want a bit more room. You can get away with the extra width since everyone knows winter boots are a bit larger than regular shoes. The boot is super pretty too and very comfy. I highly recommend. This is my first pair of real winter boots. I got them for a trip I am taking this December and expect I will have them for a long time. They are sturdy and high quality.
