Purchased a sale pair online after reading many reviews that this model runs wide hoping they may work for me.  Very attractive and fit so well right off. This doesn't happen to me very often even in the store!

After wearing several times no rub spots, slippage. Great traction, wide weave mesh that dries really fast. Shoes have worn and held up well. Had such great foot happiness I immediately bought another 2 pairs.

Sadly, I'm on the last pair now and pretty worn out.  No other model of this brand I've tried has this fit.  Get a pair if you can find them.  I always swap out footbed for Superfeet insoles.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Wear the versatile Oboz Men's Sidewinder Hiking Shoes when you hit your favorite trail. The Sidewinders feature leather and mesh uppers for comfort and breathability for your all-day jaunts. Next-generation EVA midsoles cushion your feet and give you rebound. External heel counters and Oboz' Radial Fit System (an engineered integration of the uppers and bottoms) provide stability and support on scree-covered slopes and help prevent turned ankles. Grippy outsoles have self-cleaning directional lugs that help with traction on the uphill and braking when going down.
