    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices.

Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Oboz Sawtooth Cross-Training Shoes - Men's is rated 4.15 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sore arches - I guess just not for me. I bought these looking to replace my Merrell Radius and New Balance 810's that I've worn the tread out. I've recently started doing some Canyoneering trips in Zion and have been looking for a versatile shoe that would do good on wet rock, drain well when wet but also hold up to the hard terrain that I normally hike (primary function). Plus we were planning on hiking the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim and needed a new shoe for that trip (Didn't go due to Gov't shutdown - would have been our 3rd time) I typically hike 2-3 days a week (7+ mile trips) on South Mountain here in PHX where much of the terrain is somewhat sharp, rough rock that will tear up any soft soled shoes (I do National and Marcos de Niza trails). I decided to give these a go out after reading the good reviews and getting fitted in the store. I wore them around the house and at work for several days to break them in before putting them to the test. They felt great initially but after my 1st hike, my arches were very sore (more on my left than right). I rested a couple of days, did the same hike with the same discomfort. Needless to say I was a bit disappointed cause I was very happy with the weight and the traction was spectacular. I took them back but after talking to the guys at the store bought some sole inserts (another $35) to give them another shot. It was another 2 days before I tried them out and again my arches were sore after the hike. I've never had this happen w/any other shoe I've purchased, nor did I strain anything in my foot so I have to attribute it to the shoe (I would say I have normal feet, not narrow, not wide). I hiked again this past weekend in my NB 810's and had no issues. SO, it has to be the shoe and will be returning them this week. Could it be a mfg defect? Perhaps but don't think so and now I'm once bit with Oboz and won't be buying them again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blisters made this shoe unwearable I only wore the shoes 4 times and each time i developed blisters that were so bad I could not wear them. I waited a few weeks and tried again 3 times with the same results. This shoe did not work for me. It was so comfortable in the store - I was so disappointed later. Stick with Merrell or Salomon

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Confortable I have problem finding shoes that have width in the toe area. My foot is narrow but I needed the extra width that this shoe provides!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like my feet died & went to heaven! I've been wearing the 'stiff as a board' hiking boots for the past couple years because everyone says that's what you need to wear if you're going to be doing a lot of backpacking. Since I started wearing those stiff things, I've been suffering from foot pain that had almost convinced me that I needed to stop hiking/backpacking. I'm only 33, but I thought my age was finally catching up to me. Then I bought these shoes. I picked them up because I needed a light pair of shoes that I could wear on a vacation to Greece. I wanted something light and cool enough to wear around town and up to the Acropolis in Athens, and something tough enough to wear to the summit of Mount Olympus a few days later. These were the perfect shoes. They were super comfy walking around Athens, and when I hiked Olympus, my feet were the happiest they had been on a hike in 10 years. These shoes cradled my feet so well that blisters were the furthest thing from my mind despite the steep and loose terrain we were hiking on. On the morning I hiked to the summit, I felt like I was 22 again and ended up jogging around the base of the summit because I felt so good....I attribute it all to the lack of foot pain due to the awesome shoes. I'm throwing my old high speed 'stiff as a board' Asolo hiking boots in the trash and wearing these things from now on. Ya, I know they'll wear out faster, but who cares...I'd wear out faster if I stuck with the Asolos! Perfect shoes....what'd you expect from a business based in Bozeman, Montana!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around shoe! As a multi sport athlete, I've tried many shoes, all have there pros and cons. This is a great "all around" shoe. I travel a lot for work so I need a shoe I can carry with me that can be used for many different activities. Anything from gym workout, trail running, or just an everyday casual shoe. Very comfortable, durable, and looks good too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent fit, but sole material could.. I was looking to replace my Lowa Tempest Lo hikers after many years of solid service. The guy who helped me at REI was very friendly and knowledgeable. He suggested I try the Oboz Sawtooth and comparable models from Vasque and Patagonia. The Vasque model was too narrow in the toe box for me, the Patagonia model was too cushy, very little support. The Oboz had the right fit and plenty of support. After going on a grueling desert hike in SoCal I can say that I made the right choice. But they are not perfect, I was a bit disapointed with the grip of the sole on the Oboz, I didn't feel like I could completely trust them on some slick boulders, so I had to be a bit more conservative in that sense. But overall I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These shoes rock! Right out of the box, these shoes felt awesome. I use them for hiking on pavement and trails. Tons of traction, complete support, total comfort. If these wear out, I will be looking to buy them again.
