Yellowstone

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a sturdy hiking boot with a firm sole and good ankle support. I wanted to love these boots. I really did. I am not sure if a larger size would alleviate my issues or not. I got these boots to replace a pair of Merrell Moab Mids that seemed to give me blisters in odd places. Initially, the Oboz were comfortable and I had no issues. On longer hikes I found they blistered the backs of my heels and the sides of my big toes. They offer excellent arch support and fit true to size. If you wear… Full review

Wind River

rated 5 of 5 stars Best boots I've owned. I bought two pair in reserve on clearance for 85 bucks each. These are fantastic boots unless it is wet, then be very careful on rocks.  I tried the Wind River IIs and they weren't right, if you know what I mean, whereas these were perfect the moment i put them on. I stumbled on some  of the last ones from Oboz and grabbed them at about half the price of any other decent boots. If you live in a dry climate, you will love these. They grip amazingly. If you live in a wet climate,… Full review

Bridger Mid BDry

rated 5 of 5 stars Great three-season hiking boots. These boots are comfortable on long hikes, up tough trails, through mud and water. Awesome grip on rocks and boulders. Look great, feel great. After a year I have no complaints. I have worn these Oboz boots through summer, fall, early and late winter, and spring. They are comfortable in the summer with lightweight socks, no sweating, no blisters. Cooler weather they are great with midweight socks, warm and dry. I do not wear them in the dead of winter because they… Full review

Bridger Mid BDry Insulated

rated 4 of 5 stars Insulated, waterproof, and comfortable, the Oboz Bridger Mid Insulated is made for those who stay active all winter long. Great with snowshoes, spikes, or on their own. When cold weather calls for a little insulation, but you don't want to be slowed down by heavier, sub zero gear, these boots are ready to go. Fresh from the trail you can see where snow melt has puddled a bit below the laces on top of the shoe. Those areas took a bit longer to dry, but I never found any moisture seeping through to… Full review

Sawtooth Low

rated 3 of 5 stars I've been thru about three different types of various Oboz hiking shoes, these being the most recent, and likely the last. I keep running into markdowns which propelled me into trying yet another pair. Unfortunately there is always some defect that leaves me just happy I did get them on "markdown." Every pair seemed to wear exceedingly fast. On one pair the grommets, which were really sewn straps, gave way. All are fairly technical looking but just reek of low cost manufacturing problems. Used three… Full review
