Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Shoes! I've worn this shoe, the Sawtooth, and Firebrand II, each for over 1000 miles of thru hiking, and the Bridger Low beats them all handily. 1100 miles through the Sierras and into Oregon, this shoe looked like new when I decided to replace it. No cuts, no tears, no gashes, normal wear. It was stable, comfortable (no blisters), and the uppers and footbridge showed little wear. BDry works well on this shoe, but my feet never got hot. And my feet and interior socks were clean at the end of the day. The footbridge on this shoes weared much better than the other Oboz's and was not slippery on wet rock or trees. This shoe weighs a bit more than some, but it provides more support and cushion due to it's mass. What can I say; after almost 5,000 miles of thru hiking in the last 3 season's this shoe was the best by far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super solid shoe that needs some breaking in time I've done about about 25 miles of hiking in these shoes so far and I like them more and more each mile. Out of the box, they felt very stiff but went on comfortably. Over the course of my first two hikes I found that I had to readjust the lacing every few miles as the shoes loosened and began to flex more. They now feel very well formed to my feet and are very comfortable. The tread is super grippy, although as another review noted, they slipped a little the first time encountering wet terrain. Since then, the soles don't slip at all. For a waterproof shoe, my feet have felt reasonably cool, including on an 11-mile hike in the Olympics in 80 degree weather. Overall a very sturdy shoe that I look forward to using for many miles to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this shoe is great I have owned them for over a year (bought on 4/16/2015) and I am not friendly to my footwear. Although they are not my primary hiking footwear, they could be. the only complaint i can think of, which isn't really a complaint if you ask me is they did have a break in period for my feet. As others have mentioned they still look new; the stitching is still perfect, and the tread is not noticeably warn. the insoles show some wear through the fabric where my big toe resides and I've broke a shoe lace recently...dang. ive owned many different flavors of this "type" of shoe from Teva, all the merrell varieties, solomon, la sportivia, and keen, none of them have come close to the durability of these shoes. i would recommend and I would also buy again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Get the Firebrand II instead My store did not have Firebrand in my size, so I went witth the Bridger instead. I was a bit wary of the fabric loops for the ties, but the reviews were overwhelmingly positive, so I took a chance. Within about 10 days of mostly indoor wear, one of the loops began to fray. I returned the shoes and was fortunate to find that Firebrand with the metal eyelets was available in my size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from All-around good hiking shoe I wore these on a European hiking/sight-seeing trip, where I wanted one pair of shoes for both daily use and hiking trips in the mountains. I had to experiment quite a bit with the lacing to prevent friction around the top of my foot and toes, but the heel was locked in at all times. Once I got the pressure points dialed out they felt fine. They kept me dry in light rain and marshy ground, and had great traction on everything from wet rock to dusty, dry gravel. And though there's no hiding the big lugs on the soles, they looked OK with khakis around town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Gear Addition I'm a hiking boot guy and I sent my boots off to be resoled during a time I was training for some hikes. Picked these up to use while I waited for the boots. Great addition for me. Gives you a lot of the protection, support & traction of a hiking boot with much less weight and bulk. Bonus, easy to pack for walkabouts when traveling. No complaints, great fit right out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort and foot support - really great! I need extra arch support for everyday wear, so decided to go with good hiking shoes. These shoes were exactly what I needed the moment I put them on in the store - comfortable, ready to go without breaking in, great support. I've worn them almost every day for 2 months and they are great. My feet feel better than they have for years, so now I'm back to longer hikes again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good shoe with little functionality I am a big fan of Oboz and love my sawtooth low hikers. I've had this should for about six months now. It is a good looking, sturdy, comfortable shoe and for that it deserves good marks. However, it is marketed as a hiking shoe and in my opinion it just does not qualify as such. It is very difficult to tell from the photos, but the lacing system is such that you can not get a secure fitting over your instep/ankle. I went on a day hike with these shoes and the whole time on a rocky stretch the shoe threatened to pop off. A couple of times I actually did unintentionally step right out of the shoe (with no resistance), when my foot got wedged in between some rocks. Ultimately, a good looking comfortable shoe but not worthy of hiking in. I will be returning mine. Just too costly for a shoe that doesn't function as advertised. Definitely try before you buy!

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.
