Rated 5 out of 5 by from The answer! I have tried nearly all of the boots in REI's inventory (thank you for your wonderful return policy). I have broken both my feet, and I have plantar fasciitis. To make me a harder fit, I have narrow heels and wide toes, and these are the answer. They are stiff-soled so they help me walk more efficiently. The grip of the soles in amazing. When I first tried them, I felt like the heel was set a little forward, but once I had worn them a bit, that created a terrific rolling stride while hiking. I wish that I had found these before I tried the Lowa, Asolo, Merrell, Keen, not to mention several others. Now I want you to carry ALL of the Oboz shoes. Oh, and I wish that Oboz would make shoes for work too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastically Comfortable These boots have everything I was looking for, all leather, toe cap, aggressive tread, lightweight, and great arch/ankle support. They run small, so I purchased 1/2 size larger and regular width. Glad I tried them on in store, so I got the right size. Completed a 7 mile hike my first time out with these boots. My ankles were a tad sore from boots being too tight. Loosened the laces and I was good to go. Took a few hikes to finally feel like they were breaking in and molding to my feet. The support is fantastic and they are so comfortable. My feet want to keep going down the trail!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boot - no hot spots! This boot is amazing!! I had previously tried a Keen boot which did NOT fit my foot very well (I have a narrow heel but a wider toe box) which gave me bad hot spots and made my bones ache after my first hike with them. I returned them and tried out the Oboz Bridger (per my friend's recommendation). We went on an 8-mile hike for my first time in these boots and I had no problems! My feet were a normal amount of sore and that went away within a few hours. I slipped, fell, and wedged my boot between my body and a large walk on this hike (wet moss on a rocky path, I wasn't paying attention - oops). The metal clip broke but the friendly people at my local REI made a quick exchange for me. I can't wait to go hiking this weekend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hiking boot I ever bought I limped into REI one Saturday, fairly certain I would have to cancel my hiking plans for the next day due to a painful stone bruise on one foot. I'd been wanting to try on a pair of Oboz and decided to try these boots on just for the heck of it. Much to my surprise, when i laced them up and stood up, I did not feel the stone bruise. I walked around and still no pain. That's all the convincing I needed. Not only did I wear them out of the store, I ended up hiking 9 miles in the northern Cascades the next day over rough terrain with virtually no pain in that bruised foot. And neither foot had any type of hot spot despite the fact that this was my first hike wearing these boots. Some kind of magic going on with these Oboz!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pretty much out of the box I wore these on a 50-mile hike in Yosemite in June with a 40 lb pack, expecting blisters as I only gave myself a week to break them in. I was wrong! After wearing them for a few hours a day, they were comfortable, waterproof and breathed well throughout my trip. And I only developed one small blister on my left big toe at the very end of my trip after a half day of some ill-advised scrambling, basically walking down a 45 degree incline of rock slab for 2 miles. Walked through many water logged trails and crossed streams, and these boots held up great -- they are waterproof, comfortable and very grippy due to some gnarly tread and two kinds of rubber on the bottom that wear down at different rates. I can't recommend these enough! And you can't beat the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-around, comfy boots. I'm currently on my third pair of these boots, soon to be my fourth. They are great all-around boots- not too warm for hot days, not too heavy for day hikes, and supportive enough for backpacking. They also have aggressive tread that's great for rock scrambling, and are nice and waterproof. As other reviewers mentioned, the boots also have a pretty wide toe box so there is no problem with rubbing against pinky toes if the front of your foot is wide. Plus, the red color is fun and unique. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute best hiking shoe I bough these specifically for Inka Trail hike. Spent about half an hour in the store with a very patient associate trying everything on. Ended up getting these, half a size or a whole size bigger than my usual. I took them on a few short hikes to break in, then wore it for 4 days straight (28 mile hike in high altitude) in Peru. The weather changed from sunny to rain, from 85F dry heat to almost 30F at night. Absolutely amazing! They are comfortable and sturdy, waterproof, and grip well on wet rock. I did not bring a spare pair of "camp shoes" with me to save space and didn't miss them one bit. At the end of the day these were just as comfortable, and my feet never hurt. I'm so glad I spent the money and got these. You really get what you pay for. Do try them on in the store with a good sock, make sure your toes don't touch the front on a downhill. Ask an associate to help you find the right size. Also, if you care about this stuff as much as I do, they look great. The color is pleasant, the shape is not bulky. I even wore these with leggings at some point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Durable Bought these last summer and hiked all over Montana comfortably. Very comfortable, great traction and water-proof. What made me a real believer in these boots was my recent backpack trip to Patagonia. After 7 days of hiking in rain, snow, boulder scrabbling, river hiking, and ice hiking I'm really impressed. They really performed! Waterproof for the whole week and comfortable. I saw a lot of people with high end boots that had cracked or basically fell apart during this hike. I fact I provided the duct tape to get them through the rest of the trip. However, my Oboz held up just find. Nice to have a product that does what it is suppose to do.

Are these good for a 13-day Everest Base Camp hike? My current Keen boots have been giving me hot spots and blisters. Also, is this made for wider feet?

Asked by: City Gym Rat
These boots are an excellent choice for a day hike or light backpacking trip. If you are planning on carrying a heavy pack, you may want to consider a backpacking boot that was designed with more support for heavy packs. These boots do have a wide toe box.

I am hiking the Camino this summer. I wear a size 6 in most day hiking shoes (Keen). I have narrow ankles/small heel, but need room in the toe box. Should I size up to 6.5 for this long distance hike?

Asked by: Otter
These boots run true to size. We recommend ordering a ½ size up from your normal street shoe to accommodate thicker socks and swelling feet which tend to happen on longer hikes.

How is the long term durability on these? I hike rocky, rough, dusty, hilly terrain. Averaging 8-14 miles per hike, 1-2 times a week. 

Asked by: Shaimie
These boots provide suitable durability for long day hikes on rough to moderate terrain. Traditional backpacking will greatly reduce the expected lifespan of these boots due to additional stress from the weight of a full-sized pack.

How far up in size should I order these shoes? I am planning on both summer and winter use, so thick socks on some hikes. Should I go a full size larger?

Asked by: waterwoman
For hiking shoes, we recommend a half size larger than your street shoe size to allow extra room in front of the toes.
