Oboz Beartooth BDry Hiking Boots - Men'sis rated4.1667out of5by6.
Rated4out of5byfromSolid ShoesThese boots are burly and are the heaviest pair I've ever owned. I've got clydesdale legs and hiking style, so these are great for me. The minimally-weight-inclined, however, may want to look elsewhere. Lace-up is good and snug, without any overt pressure points. My heel has little to no slide inside the boot, which may be a result of the unique heelcup rigging Oboz has going on this model. I did wear these with a pair of my thinner, older socks, however, and noticed a few warm spots begin to develop. Thicker, better socks alleviated this problem. The biggest selling point for me on these boots is the TRACTION. These things grip, so much so that I feel much more confident plowing up and through stuff. I will point out, though, that the tread pattern on this thing lends itself very well to hard to loosely packed trails, off-trail grass and other roughage, and scree like conditions. On wet rock, they aren't as grippy (but then, I've never had a boot outperform on wet rock). These things are warm, and I'm looking forward to slugging through this upcoming Northeast winter in them. Summer hiking, in the meantime, has produced some very smelly socks. Not uncomfortably hot, but desert boots these are not. Haven't had a chance to test waterproofness, but I'd be amazed if water could get into these things. Sadly, my weeklong trip that was the reason for this purchase was cancelled. So, impressions of the boot are limited to day hikes and not multi-day, extended use. I'm bummed about this, but excited to put these guys to use on the next extended outing. I believe they'll handle everything with ease.

Rated5out of5byfromLove my new bootsI haven't been able to hit the trails yet, but these boots have handled everything northern minnesota winter has throw at me. My feet haven't been cold once and they get good traction on ice.

Rated5out of5byfromAfter five different boots, this is itThanks to REI's return policy, this is my 5th boots that I purchased and tried (inside) until I got the correct fit. I'm a 10.5 regular width and this is a very nice fit. If you carry a big load this will be a great boots to have.

Rated5out of5byfromTOP NOTCH!! AMAZING PRICE!!Great Boot!! Complete rip off of ASOLO Khumba at 1/2 price. Great on trail, not so comfortable on pavement, but they are HIKING BOOTS!! I don't like when companies advertise Water Proof/Resistant. My point is NO boot is water proof (unless rubber), resistant maybe for a few hikes and then Gore Tex "B-Dry" fails. Gauranteed! Gore tex is just marketing! any hiker knows the stuff fails. I've never known it to work for very long. unfortunately it always raises the price of a boot/jacket etc. Oh Well! this aside...I love these boots, they are hardcore! and i really put them through the ringer!

Rated3out of5byfromFeel great...wear horribly.I bought these boots at the end of May 2012. I live in Colorado and enjoy everything it has to offer...maybe too much. I love Oboz's fit. I have a pair of Firebrands and have found that they fit true to size. The Beartooth looked like it would get the job done but fell way short. After 6 months, I will be returning them to REI. The good is the leather lining and comfy fit. Really no break in required. Great supportive boot. That's where it ends. The bad is that these boots just simply do not hold up to a beating. I climbed 6 Colorado 14ers this summer and the soles of these puppies are almost worn off. The rubber on the nose of the boot has peeled back and the sides have not been able to withstand rock abrasions. The most concerning for me (and why I am returning them) someone else already mentioned in the reviews. It has to do with the stretch laching connection to the boot (it is rubberized orange). Mine are about worn through and are about to snap which will render the boot useless. It seemed like a good concept and definitely gets the boot to hug your heel...but if you hike in lots of rocks and scree, it wears down and is a single point of failure. I can only recommend these boots for casual use...not for any serious endevours.

Rated3out of5byfromGood, but has a compromising flawThis boot has been used on several 14k foot peaks, in two different countries, for up to weeks at a time, through dirt, rocks, long uphill climbs, and level day hikes. The boot did a great job on all terrain that it was subjected to. It has seen light mountaineering use with flex lock crampons. It is a great boot for the more adventurous hiker. I am 6'4" and 225lbs and the boot withstood my large frame fairly well. I have owned the boot now for a full year and though I would give my general thoughts. On level terrain, the boot is a bit much. Above 60 degrees and hours of casual walking the boot proved too warm for comfort. I often find myself looking for a cool stream to put step in. As it is fully waterproof, it sacrifices some breathability. It is most useful in the 20-50 degree range and with a 10lbs or larger pack on semi rocky to rocky terrain. The sole is very sturdy and the texture of the terrain is rarely felt through. Sharp edges can indeed be felt by putting your weight on it but I feel this is reasonable and necessary. The sides of the boot are also quite sturdy with protection going up well above the ankle. Grip is good and I have only lost my footing one time about 20 feet from the summit of a 14k Colorado peak, but this was due more to my loss of concentration than shortcomings with the boot. It served well on the Inca trail in Peru with a 40lbs pack for four days. I can recall only two blisters on a foot during the first 20 or 25 miles of break in. Unless you really kick a stone or footstep, my toes never reached the front of the boot and regular descent's were never a problem. The laces are strong and hold well. The laces bring me to my biggest problem with the boot. The problem and reason that this boot only gets three stars is stems from a compromising problem directly under the lace hooks. It is the orange strap that holds the metal clip that in-turn, holds onto the nylon loop which finally connects to the boot lace. This is arguably the most important lace connector because it is the location where the foot laces connect with rest of the boot. The design of this boot uses what seems to be a soft leather material at the widest and point of the boot and prone to abrasion (see red circle of picture if it works). If this were to fail as I guess it would under the right circumstances, the laces would become nearly useless. As a hole, this is a pretty solid product and as seen many miles now. In the year I have owned it, it has never failed under some pretty gritty trails.
