Nice shoe. I have the mid tops and love them and wanted low tops for summer shorts since its either these are flops...no more garbage tennis shoes. These fit great right out of box and hold up great. Went from merrel to Oboz and wont go back
These shoes are amazing!! They run a tad small so I went up a .5 size. Very comfortable with hardly no "break in" period. I walked all over Vegas in these and my feet were fine. Can't wait to hit the trails with these!
I have basically duck feet with an arch, not gonna lie. After spending more time than I'd like to admit going through the women's section, finding shoes that were long enough, but not wide enough or wide enough but not in a big enough size, I finally went to the men's to find something that fit better.
Initially, I was checking out Keens, but saw these and grabbed them in the right size with a wide width. I felt like Cinderella! It was a perfect fit overall! Ladies, if you have the same problem I do, I highly recommend these! They have great support and keep me comfortable all day!
I bought these from an online retailer of outdoor goods. I was hoping that they would live up to even half of the hype I have read. News Flash --- It's not hype. These are truly well built and true fitting shoes. I ave put some serious miles on them and have never wished for one of the many other shoes and boots I have traveled in over the years. That covers a lot of footwear over a lot of years. My compliments to Oboz.
I have 3 pair of Oboz Shoes and I really like wearing this shoe. I work in the theater and I wear these all day... Here is the issue. The tongue of the shoe is too short. The laces of this shoe end up right across the top of my foot when tied. A roadie came through my theater with the same shoe, we both agreed we like the shoe but my shoe was clearly made differently. The arch is great. I should have returned it and got a different pair but didn't. I still wear them a lot, Just be sure you check when you buy... I would give five stars but I would not hike with my pair the laces would dig into my foot too much.
The Bridget low cut waterproof hikers are the best pair of shoes I’ve had since the early days of Merrell. They far exceed what other brands offer and provide the right fit, comfort, durability and real waterproof quality. At first I wondered why they were so pricey, but after living in them for days at a time in wet, rainy, and muddy weather, I get it. They are worth every penny.
Just bought a pair of these after sales person at Scheels recommended them. Felt great at the store. After one day of wearing them, they are killing my feet. I do not have the widest feet nor the narrowest, but the only thing I’ve determined is that it’s the toe box is not big enough. I put my old Moabs back on and problem solved. If you are an in-betweener on foot width, I’d recommend staying away from these. That, or you may end up with a $145 pair of useless shoes or someone at the Goodwill is going to get a heck of a deal. Guess I’ll be wearing what I know. Too bad, they are a nice looking shoe.
Bridger low. Great looking shoe and comfortable when first put on. However, on walking just a short distance, even on flat territory I developed really bad blisters on both of my heel bones. Very painful. This is in spite of the shoes being the correct size. Very disappointed.
I've had mine for a couple years now and love them. They have worn well and still have lots of life left. I got them at REI where I tried on at least a half dozen different shoes. Prior to these my favorites had always been Vasques–until the salesperson there suggested them I had never even heard of Oboz, but I'm glad they brought them out. I have a number of issues with my feet and require a shoe that gives me good arch support, a stiff sole, and good lateral stability. The arch support is stellar, the sole is stiff but not super stiff- just perfect for me, and the lateral stability is pretty good. The shoe cups your heel really well and prevents over pronation. The only downside is the slightly rounded edges along the outsole can allow your ankle to roll a bit if you're not careful, but on the flip side gives you a nice amount of control around rocky terrain. The real chunky tread is awesome for traction on rocky or muddy trails. It is a hiking shoe, though– the aggressive, deep tread while great on trails makes walking on flat surfaces, like pavement feel a bit awkward, although this does mellow somewhat once the tread is worn down a bit. So if you're looking for a crossover shoe that you can wear around town and then hike, I'd go with a shoe with a less aggressive tread. Also, because of this, I think next time I get boots for hiking, I will go with the mid-height version instead of the low since these are serious hikers.
Also worth noting: These are the only hiking shoes that I didn't have to replace the insole on to get a high quality insole with arch support. Their insoles are legit, so that's about $40 saved on not getting a new insole.
I purchased a pair of Tamarack low B-dry water proof shoes. I have worn them to the point of being worn out. The whole time I have worn them, the laces kept loosening. It was usually very inconvenient. I suggest you either change the fabric in your laces or include cord locks with each pair. I purchased cord locks to solve the problem.
These hiking shoes need no breaking in, they are comfortable right out of the box. Great support, traction, and waterproof. They also are good looking. During many years of construction work and outdoor activities I’ve tried many brands... Oboz are my favorite!
I've had these for several months, and recently wore them on a 100 mile hike through the Scottish Highlands. These fit true to size, and offer great foot support. Conditions were wet and rocky, and i had good traction, and protection from rough surfaces. A bit of seepage through the tongue, but for the most part, my feet stayed comfortably dry. My only nit is that in my size 12's, the tongue was about a half inch too short, meaning that the laces sometimes cut into your ankle
When we got to our parking place before the marathon my son noticed that I had two different shoes on. One running shoe and one of my newly purchased Bridger low's. Not having a choice, I simply said "no big deal" adversity builds character. After the race I said that I would have worn both of my Bridger's if I had the choice, the foot with the Bridger in it simply felt better during and after the race. Since then I have worn them whitetail hunting in the fall, snow running in the winter and on very wet trails in the spring. I also wear them to the office, to the job site, while mowing the lawn, to the beer festival and even on the dance floor. It is the first time I have found a low cut shoe that keeps up with the changing weather of Vermont.
As a SWMT resident I am thrilled to be able to recommend a local product so sincerely and thoroughly. I ordered my pair sight unseen relying on reviews and research. The fit was terrific right out of the box. Traction, dryness, temperature, support are all outstanding. What has really blown me away is their durability. I wear them 80% of the time, year round. I beat them up. After two years they are still going strong, still dry, plenty of sole, no seam or glue failure. I am shopping for a new pair as I type to take on vacation next month because I want a new pair to show off when I see my old pals from my first home. These are not just my current favorite shoes, these are my GOAT. Certainly the only ones that impressed me enough to advertise for them. Don't you go changin'!
