These are great hiking boots. They look great, they feel great and they seem to be well made. I've only worn them twice and the weather was dry so I can't comment on their waterproofness or traction on wet slippery surfaces but I'm looking forward to finding out soon.
I work outside all year round so shoes have to be durable. I love Oboz brand because I don't have to replace every 4-6 months. These last at least a year or more with high use. Love the supportive fit. I've tried all the different styles of Oboz. You can't go wrong. Even customer support was quick and helpful. Because I wear them everyday the shoe laces tend to wear/break. I couldnt find any of the laces around town so I called Oboz and they sent me replacements free. Thank you Oboz.
This is not my first pair of OBOZ. I really enjoy my mid hikers. I wanted a shoe to replace my merrell cameleons. After trying them on they shoes fit in a weird spot on my ankle and was uncomfortable. For a low top shoe they fit just a bit to high and made them uncomfortable to wear.
