User Review: Oboz Men's Yellowstone
Use: Dayhikes, Backpacking
Break-in Period: Too long
I'm a woman, but I got the men's version of the Yellowstone. They are pretty comfy but require some breaking in (at least 30 miles prior to a serious backpacking trip). They are comfy and offer great stability. My feet got a little hot in them (but my feet get hot in most any shoe).
Good hiking boot overall!
Update: October 12, 2009
This review is an addendum to my previous one. I really hoped these boots would break-in better. After a summer of hiking and backpacking with them they have been nothing but a footsore.
They are good up to about a 5 mile hike. After that expect blisters, and bruising on your ankle bones.
I really had high hopes for these boots--suffice it to say they are not what I will be using next year.
