a good shoe for the price

pros: light, tight entry keeps out a little more debris, good wearing sole (only used on trails), good stability and grip, narrow fit especially in the heel, tight stable fit, fairly breathable

cons: little detail bits of grip on the sole are coming unstuck, really narrow in the front, materials around the toes are starting to split and crack. very hard to get on because of tight entry to keep out debris

overall: good for the price, only for the narrow footed

- Sierra Trading Post refers to the men's version

From grassy meadows to scree-covered slopes, the Oboz Men's Ignition Trail Running Shoes take your feet there in comfort. These Oboz trail runners feature bootie construction (the tongue isn't separate), which gives you a snug fit and helps keep out trail debris. An underfoot TPU plate protects your soles from rocks, and a TPU heel clip provides stability without making the Ignitions rigid and uncomfortable. Dual-density midsoles on the Ignitions absorb impact and rebound your energy so you can run farther and longer. Grippy outsoles help you stay upright on rugged and muddy trails.

- Backcountry Outlet refers to the men's version

Turn the key and go with Oboz Ignition trail-runners—technical running shoes made with trails in mind. Polyurethane synthetic leather uppers feature ample nylon mesh for maximum breathability. Uppers also sport slingshot heels and floating forefoot cages to lock feet in for security while running on rugged terrain. Neoprene and nylon mesh ''dynamic'' bootie construction keeps trail debris out, wicks moisture and dries quickly. Anatomic EVA footbeds and dual-density EVA midsoles provide cushioning over long trail runs or short sprints through fields. Thermoplastic urethane stability clips at heels deliver stability through your footstrike. Nylon plates offer torsional stability and protection underfoot, increasing surefootedness on varied terrain and reducing rock bruising. High-friction, nonmarking rubber outsoles grip in all directions on both wet and dry surfaces with ease.
