I work on roofs for a living and require a work shoe that is durable, lightweight. flexible and has a sole with grip.
Most shoes in this category do not have true eyelets for lacing but have eyelets made of webbing. These tend to wear out and break and then the shoe is worthless. These OBOZ have true eyelets and last me longer than any other brand I have tried. I am always confident of their fit and build and so now I order them online from Onlineshoes.com and have them within a couple of days...this is my 3rd such pair that I have oredered.
I really like the Oboz Luna. I have a couple other pairs of Oboz and they are fine, but this shoe is terrific. Comfortable from the beginning with relatively little break in time (unlike the other Oboz). Extremely light with good arch support. I have issues with plantar fascitis and usually have to worry with orthotics but not with these shoes. I have only had them for a week or so, but can tell that they are going to be the go-to for outdoor wear. Plus they dont look as clunky as some of the other hikers I have. And, the discount from Online shoes made it easier for me to give them a try! As others have said, this shoe runs about a half size large. I ordered based on those comments and am glad I did. Fit was just right adjusting up a half size.
I really wanted to love these boots, but after wearing them around my house for an hour I knew I could not. While the boot itself was quite comfortable, the sides dug into my ankles. I knew I could never wear them for a long walk.
I haven't had these on the trail yet, but from wearing them around the house, I can say they're sturdy and seem to fit my wide feet. I had a different model of Oboz that didn't have the traction I needed for slick rocks in the Smokys, and my boyfriend recommended these. Gonna give them a try.
