Your legs will thank you.

Keep your legs light on the trail with the Oboz Women's Sawtooth Low Hiking Shoes. If big boots are a bit too much for most hikes and hiking shoes tend to be too weak for the rugged trails you like to explore, consider these burly yet light hikers. They're breathable, waterproof, and built on an aggressive sole that will bite into everything from packed-out trails below treeline to rocky alpine routes that frequently cross long sections of scree followed by wet and soggy meadows. Oboz added plenty of cushioning in the form of a dual-density midsole to support your feet over miles of rough and rugged terrain, then added a nylon shank for added stability when the angle of ascent turns steep.

Oboz knows happy toes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this shoe (men's version) just over three years ago and wore them every day for work and play with a lot of time on asphalt as well as rocky trails. In all weather conditions these shoes kept my feet super comfortable and my high arches from getting sore. The size 9.5 fit true to size and even after all those miles the soles have good tread. The only signs of wear are from the mesh above the toes, probably from thrashing through the underbrush. I bought this pair for my wife and have a fresh pair in my wishlist for me. This shoe breathes well in the summer and keeps my feet dry year round. I like medium Smartwool socks to go with. If you haven't tried Oboz, do your self a favor.

My mom loves them!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these shoes for my mom for her birthday and she absolutely loves them. They have a wider toe box that helps keep her feet happy and she says they are extremely comfortable. Maybe I need to look into a pair for myself ;)

Finally found the right shoes.

Tried about 10 different shoes before I found these. Really comfy and keep my feet dry. Great on long, rocky, muddy hikes. Also comfy around town. Fit true to size and are a little wide around the toes - just what I needed.

Great Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these as a present for one of my friends and she couldn't be happier with them. She said they're very comfortable and didn't take long to break in, and they keep your feet the right temp. She said she will definitely buy these again.

LOVE THIS! Favorite Waterproof Low!

This is by far my favorite waterproof low hiker! It is so comfortable straight out of the box and unlike some other brands, my foot doesn't overheat. My feet stay nice and dry during rainy hikes and crossing low flowing streams. I highly recommend this shoe!
