Oboz Yellowstone II Hiking Boots - Women'sis rated4.8out of5by5.
Rated5out of5byfromgreat hiking bootThese boots are comfortable, lightweight, waterproof, and offer good traction even in the slippery clay-based mud we have in SE Ohio. I cannot comment on durability yet since I've only had them for a few weeks.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat boot, poor ankle supportReviewing these boots after over a year of use. I typically go on day hikes every other week, with smaller loops in between, and daily walks around the lake along with mountain biking. When I first tried these on at REI, they fit like a glove. Nice and tight, but not too overwhelming - just right. The insoles and laces were a selling point for me as well. However, after a few months of use I discovered that my ankles would suddenly bend outward on occasion, and this was where the terrain was pretty straight-forward. The first time this happend I actually had a slight sprain in my left ankle. I thought it might have just been my stride, but it happened too often to ignore, especially on longer day hikes. I'm wondering if the upper was just not supportive enough for my ankle, or became looser over time, but I felt like I had to over-tighten the laces around my ankle to prevent this from happening. The other problem I had with them is that the balls of my feet would hurt after a good 6 hour trek, but that's with carrying an extra 10 pounds or so on my back. Other than that, my feet always stayed dry and odorless, which was impressive. After a year, there's still some life in the tread, probably about a quarter of what was originally there. I'll probably continue to use these for casual outdoors activities, since I just bought the Vasque Breeze 2.0. I would still recommend them despite my ankle problem because we're all built differently.

Rated5out of5byfromPerfect shoeThe shoe is perfect for me. It did not need any breaking in. I have used it on up hill and down hill hikes. Did not get one blister. The cushioning is terrific. You will not need to buy inserts with this shoe. I bought a half size bigger than my street shoe to allow for swelling on long hikes and find that it is sufficient for me. Good construction, I feel this shoe will last for a long time.

Rated5out of5byfromRecommendedWe bought these for my wife and after a couple days of break-in, she says they are lightweight and like "walking on air". Her feet and knees hurt after walking too much in sub-par shoes. She has zero pain after walking around all day in these Oboz boots. They clean up easy too.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat so far!I love these boots! I bought them in August before coming to Canada for a few months. They have kept my feet dry, and warm even on days with very poor weather. I have walked through streams and my feet remained entirely dry. I also like the heel and toe protection since I'm a bit clumsy. The only time my feet were ever cold was when it was around freezing outside and I was standing still for a long period of time. I use them walking to class and on light day hikes. I have yet to take them backpacking and I look forward to seeing how they measure up.
