Manufacturer's Description

Oboz's new Hardscrabble is wearable for everything from trail running to hiking. Its durable all-synthetic upper is built with a double layer of abrasion resistant mesh that keeps feet well ventilated for peak bagging and on those long distance days.

Underfoot, Oboz builds trustworthy traction with high friction, non-marking carbon rubber and deep well-spaced lugs. A full-coverage high density EVA sheet protects vulnerable areas of the foot and extends into the heel area for added stability; medial posting and nylon shank add stability, and multi-component, multi-density EVA platform cushions every step.
