Had to return for a half size larger....Alas, no stock!? Awaiting info about
restocking for this item. Was told by On-Line rep that this would be about 3-4
weeks. Guess I'll find out mid November if this transaction comes to fruition.
I took the advice of others and selected these 1/2 size larger than my normal size. Perfect! Although I selected the "too narrow" category, the boots are perfect for my narrow foot. Break-in took about two weeks, but they are now comfortable and quite supportive. I cannot speak to their longevity yet. In the spring and summer, I will be putting them to the test on rocky, mountainous topography. Regarding the BDry fabric, it's working thus far. The soles are grippy and provide excellent traction on all types of terrain. Aesthetically, the boots are eye-catching...if that's a concern for you. Although I have tried a number of different brands, I think I will purchase Oboz again in the future.
I have several pair of Oboz and I like them all. I usually wear a size 8 and was a little concerned from the previous reviews that I would have to order a different size. I ended up going with an 8 and they fit great. I wore them on a recent trip to Nevada; great walking on the street and great on easy trails. The laces on these stay tied (yay!). So far I am quite pleased.
I bought these OBOZ to hike on the Arizona rocky trails and replace two other brands that have worn out in the soles. The soles on the OBOZ feel very strong and sturdy. They are well made and feel a bit stifff at first, but they feel better after a couple of good hikes. I can usually wear a 2 E or wide athletic shoe and these feel comfortable in width for me, but not too wide. I intend to put many hiking miles on these shoes.
