Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots These boots are great! I've owned them for about two months now and couldn't be happier. I have had the chance to wear them on a variety of different hikes, everything from casual strolls in the woods to all day very steep and rocky mountain climbs and they've performed better than I could have hoped. The rugged and deep tread made getting traction not an issue, the all leather uppers make them very durable and the waterproofing kept my feet nice and dry. By far the best feature of this boots is the insole it is extremely well engineered with great padding and arch support for all day hiking comfort, these guys at oboz really know what they're doing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots from a Great Company These boots are a replacement for my old Yellowstone boots, also from Oboz. I have worn them on three shorter hikes to break them in and am very impressed. I wear these a half size larger than my street shoes and there is plenty of room in the toe box. The newer ankle strap design further prevents banging my toes on descents. The heel cup holds my feet well and the insert is of such a good quality that I won't need any third party insert. I am very impressed with these boots, and my customer service inquiries to Oboz over the years have always resulted in curteous and helpful responses. Can't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good hikers Well this is my fifth pair of Oboz hiking boots and I love them. Bought this pair prior to leaving for a week long pack trip to the North Fork American River. The trail is not for the faint at heart, with steep downhills on shale and loose dirt for seven switchbacks. Due to the hike in is all downhill with a full pack, you are doing a lot of braking. The Oboz Bridger handled the trail perfectly. The aggressive tread made for excellent traction on the loose footing. The water proofing worked well on some of the water crossings that had to be made. The only con was that it was a little hot while wearing wool socks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit well but HOT and poor traction I love these because they fit my narrow feet very well. My previous boot was a Vasque Breeze, and I was excited to see another boot on the market that felt great right in the store, which is rare for me. If they made the Bridger with a GoreTex lining and Vibram soles, they'd be the perfect boot. Alas, they don't breathe well and are so hot that my feet sweat profusely; *much* more than with any other boot I've ever worn. Also, the traction is noticeably worse than shoes with Vibram soles. This is no small concern: I don't want to hurt myself because of an avoidable slip. A potentially great boot, but disappointing in its current incarnation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good boot with one problem I have had these boots for 7 months and they have been great. They fit very well, have good support and good traction. The only problem I have had with them is the lugs on the back outsides of the boot both ripped off while hiking Wheeler Peak. Other than this, the boots have proven to be of very high quality, and the waterproofing is excellent. I was disappointed about this (since they are only 7 months old, and have had some but not heavy use), and returned them to REI. REI's policy was great, they exchanged them for a new pair of the boots and if it happens again, I can get store credit for the full value of the boot (so I could get a different pair of boots if the lugs continue to break). REI handled this very well, I am impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best hiking boots I've owned The Oboz Bridger BDry are the best hiking boots I've owned. I've used them for walking and hiking for 3 months. Great support, lightweight, comfortable, great traction, soles shed dirt easily. The soles have good torsional rigidity. Well made. These boots have the tall toe box that my feet require. Generously sized rubber heel and toe caps. 3 pairs of metal lacing eyelets where positive lacing is needed the most: mid foot and at the top. Most mid height hiking boots don't have any metal lacing eyelets. I have not worn them in heavy rain yet. They have a rocker sole like my New Balance walking shoes. I love it! They run a little small. I am a size 13 and I purchased a size 14. (Length increases from 13 to 14. You may only need a half size longer.) The width was true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot. Would reccommend. I had a pair of hiking boots for over 4 years and had a sort of connection to them. I was reluctant to buy a new pair, but am glad I bought this pair. Had them for about a month and half now and I really like them. I was mostly looking for a boot that would last me a long time and I certainly think these will hold up. Ill be going to the backpacking in the Rockies this summer, so we'll see how well they do. So far they've gotten me back and forth to class in the freezing weather and my feet have had little issue. I was told the BDry technology is similar to Gore-Tex in its breathability and waterproofing. Have to say its pretty much the same. The only complaint is that they have little traction on ice and slush. Hopefully that is not the case for hiking trails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, great traction Besides the fact that my last pair of boots didn't fit right (partly my bad), they had terrible traction. So many boots have a sole pattern that doesn't dig in, grip well. Not these boots. On my first hike with steep hard packed trails with dust, sand and loose rock, they grabbed like crazy - were very confidence inspiring. And they fit wonderfully - no sliding forward into the toe of the boot on the steep descents. I just read some of the reviews about them falling apart or not being built well. Guess time will tell on that aspect of the boot. For now, I love them.

I wear an 11.5 in Keen Boots how does the size of the Oboz compare?

Asked by: pjjb51
Actually in response to REIservice's response. Keen sizing in the range I wear is at best random, with sizes possibly assigned by a blind, novice dart player. My foot is 12" long, so by sizing charts would be about a U.S. 14. Some Keen size 12 are large & long, and some 15 are just right. Keen is not alone in this problem, but the worst I've seen. The Oboz Bridger B-Dry boots size 14 that I just purchased today are smaller & shorter in length than any of the other size 14 boots I tried (& the Keen Durands I've been wearing). I can't wear these Oboz Bridgers with thick socks, but can wear them with light Costco merino wool socks. Compared to Keens, the toe box is smaller, but not restrictive, and the heel fits well -- rather than sloppy loose. I hope this helps.

I want to water proof my bdry shoe I have already sprayed them with a scotch guard waterproofing. I was thinking that using a Leather Dressing such as one made by Pecard would help in the waterproofing and help the longevity of the shoe. Should i use it?

Does this boot have good ankle support? I am now wearing a low cut hiking shoe (Lowa), like them very much but I need good ankle support.

Asked by: Joe hiker
​This boot has fairly stiff uppers due to the leather being used in the construction. The cuff is also designed to fit closely, but comfortably around the ankle and provide good support.

How are these in warm weather? They seem ideal however, just looking at them they appear hot. Do they have good ventilation to prevent excessive heat?

Asked by: shmuel
​These boots are not as breathable as some other light hikers. If you intend to wear them in hot and dry climates you might find them too warm.

Hi, I would like to order some insoles for my Oboz hiking boots but am not sure what model they are.  They are probably 3 yrs old and i don’t have the receipt any more.. is there a way to tell which model they are?  do you need a photo?

How compatible are these boots with Superfeet insoles, and which insoles would you recommend?

Asked by: Benson05
Yes, the insoles are removable and can be replaced with Superfeet. The Bridger BDry Hiking Boots are not high volume. Any of the Superfeet should work (depending on the person's feet).
