Sawtooth Low

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent shoe. Lighter than most boots, yet sturdier than trail runners. Great underfoot protection, arch support and heel cup. I've never had a blister from these. Excellent shoe. I've had them for over a year, taken them backpacking and up multiple 14ers - heavy loads and long days. Lighter than boots, yet sturdier than trail runners. Great underfoot protection, arch support and heel cup.  I've never had a blister from these. No break in required.  Not the waterproof model, but this helps keep… Full review

Sawtooth Low

rated 4 of 5 stars About me: 55ish year old, 5' 10” tall, overweight (190lb and all in the beer belly), upper-intermediately experienced backpacker. Been backpacking all my life since before Boy Scouts in the early 70s to present. Due to injuries and some physical issues (read: fat, old and lazy, mostly) I don't get out as much as I used to or would like to and have been transitioning from “Old Style” backpacking where I'd carry between 40 and 60 pounds (sometimes more) for a 3-7 day trip to “Lightweight”… Full review

Sawtooth Low

rated 5 of 5 stars These shoes are fantastic and fit perfectly from the start. I immediately forget I have them on and I can walk for days and not get sore feet. I have a tendency for plantar fasciitis, and these provide great arch support and have generous room for toes. Solid under my feet, I will be buying these again when they wear out...but I don't expect that to be for a few years. Fit — perfect from the start, good arch support, room for wide feet. Lacing system easy to tighten and adjust. No break in needed… Full review

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
