Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Out of the Box I go on about 3 or 4 hikes a week. I wanted a boot that gave me ankle and arch support and I wanted something that wasn't going to have a long break in period. I went in to my Local REI store and these boots were sitting on the SALE rack if you can believe it! They were the only ones left and they were my size to fit exactly. They felt comfortable in the store but I would have never guessed how comfortable they were out of the box. I went on a long hike after it rained non stop and the Barton Creek Greenbelt was gushing out water after the rain storm. They were waterproof. At some points on my hike the water came up to the beginning of my ankle and my feed stayed dry. They just get keep getting better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hiking boots I've ever had Every hiking boot I have ever had gave me blisters. Break-in time was long and blisters still appeared. These boots are the best I have ever owned by far: comfortable from day 1, no blisters. First try with Oboz was 10 days in No Cascades NP: fine in cold, rain, heat and sweaty feet. Second new pair (wore out the first wearing them on daily hikes) broken in at Glacier NP, 8-12 miles/day. All comfortable in hot, cold, wet, dry. I hope Oboz stays in business a long time because my feet need these boots! (They are so outstanding they prompted this, my first online review.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hiking in Sedona I purchased these boots for day hikes in Sedona and the Grand Canyon and am very pleased I did. They were comfortable from day 1 with no break in period required. I bought one whole size larger than I normally wear in street shoes so I could wear mid-weight socks and still have room. They provided very good grip when we scrambled up and down steep embankments and were waterproof crossing steams. I normally wear orthotics but the boots provided good support so I didn't need them. The bottoms are extremely solid and my feet and ankles felt secure on all terrains. I would highly recommend these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, sturdy hikers. I often have trouble finding boots that fit a narrow foot and heel. The REI staff recommended these, and they did not disappoint. While not cushy, they are comfortable, sturdy, water-worthy and relatively light. Perfect boot for hiking year-round with the dog, rain or shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfy I never believed reviews that said comfy out of the box but these definitely were. After only a couple very short hikes, I wore them backpacking for a week with a 40 pound load. I have a narrow heel yet like a larger toe box, and these accomodated, especially because of the awesome lacing system - easy to get nice and snug. Can't comment on waterproofness though cuz wasn't really in any wet conditions. We'll see.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy, but uncomfortable Took these on a day hike to break them in and test them out .. the hiking trail itself was very rocky, but completely flat - there were also areas to climb some big boulders. I ordered a half size up as recommended .. but my feet just did not feel stable inside - especially when climbing the boulders, could never get a good footing. After only 2 or 3 hours my feet were not happy. These shoes were not comfortable at all. The outter pinky area kept jamming up against the toe box as well, luckily the hike wasn't too long otherwise would have definitely gotten blisters. Sadly, returning these. If it can't handle a flat 2-3 hour hike, I really don't want to take these out on any other trail.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like them I went for a very long hike and they were great hiking up. Felt comfortable, stable. Walking down they were super uncomfortable. My feet were hurting from lack of support, also my soles were burning. When I took off the boots my soles were soaked, all white. I have never had it with my previous boots. Not sure if that is not a right fit for me or what the problem was. I had good thick merino wool hiking socks which did not help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous boot just not for heavy hiking. This hiker is one of the most comfortable boots I have ever owned other than a couple of my Asolo's in my past life. I wear the my Sawtooth's everyday and I couldn't ask for a boot that gives good ankle support, super comfortable, made narrow (which I like since my feet are narrow) The make or quality of the boot is terrific too, and they have great traction, plus look nice. One problem, or maybe a couple of issues---my feet get soaked even in a little water like waking on the beach, plus my feet get cold in the Pacific Northwest weather at least in April. If I wear heavier, wool socks the comfort level goes down fast because the boot gets too tight. On a hike the boot doesn't take a beating like my Asolo Fission's, but that would be on a messy, woodsy, hardcore Alpine hike. I wear these boots to walk the dog on dry trails, urban walking, and just about town or outdoors at a park or something. The Oboz Wind River II BDry Hiking Boots are for heavier hiking and they are very comfortable too---and keep my feet dry and warm.

I love my Oboz yellowstone boots (best boots ever!!) and am looking to replace.  How does the Bridger and Sawtooth compare?

Asked by: partypatty
​The Bridgers are very close to the Yellowstones. The Bridgers have a thermoplastic shank that will provide more support compared to the nylon shank in the Yellowstones.

How do they last compared with Keens?  I have worn out Keens in one year and looking for something that lasts longer. 

Asked by: Jeaniey
​The Sawtooth Mid Hiking Boots are very durable and should last quite some time. Unfortunately we cannot estimate how long they will last as that would depend on how much they are used.

Oboz shoes and boots are good for the heart and sole

Bozeman-based Oboz plants a tree for every pair it sells, runs its Montana office on windpower, and donates shoes to those in need. Oh, and they biomechanically engineer their footwear to be incredibly comfortable, too.
