Well constructed, thick leather, sturdy shoe. Am still breaking in but fairly comfortable. Had to get a thicker insole to take up space as they seem a touch wider than my usual brands which are Vasque, Salomon, Teva, and Columbia. The loops holding the shoelaces are kinda tight...I can see difficulty threading them when it comes time to replace.

I have a narrow foot. The insole did not fit the shape of my foot--it felt like there was a lump under my heel. I probably could have done something about that, but the underside of the tongue was lumpy and sharp edged. It was also thin with little padding and you could feel the laces through it. It started to irritate the top of my foot after just a few minutes trying it on at home. I purchased 1/2 size larger than my street shoes --which I normally do in these type of shoes--and the length was fine. I tested the grip on some wet tiles and they didn't slip, so I was disappointed that I could not keep them. I was hoping to replace some older Merrells which were slippery.

I wanted to love these boots because they're so cute, but back they go. The Oboz is a more structured hiking boot. You definitely feel secure and solid wearing them. They have a roomy toe box, but I was immediately aware of the arch support. A bit too much arch for me! If you need a lot of arch support, this might be the boot for you. As for sizing-- It's just a bit on the small side. I'd say if you're in between sizes and are planning to wear hiking socks, you might want to go up a 1/2 size.

Love these running shoes! Perfect right out of the box. They've been great for trail running as well as walking all day. The arch feels fine. The toe box is wide which I like. They look is great too. I would buy this brand again.

Just got these yesterday and used them today. Felt great right out of the box! Good support, stability and comfort. I use these types of shoes mostly for walking. Definitely squeeks on bare floors when the soles are wet.

They didn't fit me right, the sides rubbed against my ankle bones. I don't think breaking in will help with that so returning them.

Hiking shoes are almost as bad as trying on jeans, but worse because you need to wear them around a while to know if they really fit. To add to the problem, I find that stores are not carrying a very big inventory so you may find a style you like but they don't have your size, or they only have a couple of brands to try. I wanted to buy from a store where I could actually have them on my feet but after 3 visits to 3 different stores, I was very frustrated. My husband bought a pair of Oboz and loved them immediately. He talked about them for days so I decided to try them. I wanted a hiking shoe with all the support of my hiking boots but a less boot look. I like to wear on the airplane when flying to hike to keep my packing light and the boots, well they looked like boots! These are handsome and the ONLY thing I would like is maybe not possible - a hiking shoe with the brawn these have with a slightly "lighter" look. But the most important thing is comfort and these excel. I need a wider toe box and these accommodated my foot perfectly. I tried on the size smaller in the store and they felt funny, not really small, but the bottom of my foot was not hitting the curves correctly. The next size up and the same size as my boots in another brand fixed that issue. I have not worn these for days and they feel the same and perfect. The bottoms are substantial, the ankle support feels great for a shoe, and the shoe addresses my tendency to overpronate.

I've had these for over a year now and they are quality built and very durable. For outdoor shoes these were my first departure from Merrells and in terms of quality and durability, these are a much better shoe. I haven't worn other Oboz but these are quite stiff without much cushion. The heel pocket is quite high and at times they feel tippy in the ankle. I'd buy Oboz again for sure but would want to try other models to find a more comfortable fit. Overall I'm happy

A great crossover shoe. Very comfortable right out of the box, although I use replacement insoles. A superior quality to my previous Merrill Moab's.

I am impressed with Oboz Sawtooth shoes. I bought the wide and they fit perfectly right out of the box. Walk daily these shoes are very kind to my feet. And getting them from Zappos was quick and easy. Thanks, Zappos!

Not my favorite colour. I didn't want brown, but these shoes had excellent ratings for my high arches. I will return and get a half size larger shoe. These ratings and this review are only after my first wearing of the shoe. Once I get the correct size, then my review will hopefully be more positive. :)

This is my 4th pair of Oboz, from low cut breathable hiker to lite trail shoe, & second light hiking boot. I have a wider than average forefoot and narrow heel. This brand just fits well, and has been comfortable in all these different lasts.

Ordered a 10.5 (and that is my go-to size) but this shoe runs small. Also I prefer a stiff sole for hiking here in the Rockies. This seemed a little soft. Returning the shoes.

By far the best hiking shoe I have ever purchased.We just got back from hiking AZ and I looked forward to wearing these everyday. Great traction with and awesome sole. Didn't feel every little rock poking through like with my Merrill's.The heel felt very stable as well.Oboz are my go to hiking shoe for now on!

selected this shoe because it was described as large toe box but narrow heel. I still had movement in the heel and I wish the shoe had the lacing configuration so you could make the loops to tighten down to help stop movement in the heel as well. I have a big problem with this movement but no shoe works as advertised, it does have a very comfortable toe box and hasn't given me a blister. I have worn it for many miles several times.

Fit nice out of the box and true to size. I ordered a Northface pair along with these Oboz and this was my choice between the two because of comfort.

Wow, I'm really glad to discover this brand! I was looking to a hiking/trail running shoe that was waterproof and also good for long fast city walks of up to 2 hrs. I ordered 5 pairs and this was far and away my favorite. It's fairly light for a hiking shoe so I can do short running or wind sprints in it. It's sturdy and a little stiffer than my previous shoes so it took a couple of days getting used to that but now I love them! Great for anyone who likes Keens - wide but not too wide and not a big heel drop (I hate that most running shoes feel like I'm in heels).

My first pair and couldn't be happier. Wore through most of the fall and (mild) midwest winter with great traction, comfort (stayed dry) and a bit of style (e.g. I can wear almost anywhere). The sole is firm but not hard (like my Lowe's) and promotes a natural heel-toe rolloff. The shoe does not breath too much so I stick to mid/light-weight wool and usually unlace a bit if I'm going to be indoors for awhile. And unlike many alternatives...they are Made in America.

I really liked the oboz bridger low look and construction of the shoe. Unfortunately I had to return this item as it created a pressure point on my ankles!

Had high hopes for these to replace Merrell and Skechers which have both gone down the quality drain. Seem to be built well but something about the styling is off. Very narrow. Sent back and still searching for something to replace the beloved old Merrell Chameleons.
