    Comments about OBOZ Men's Bridger BDry Hiking Boots, Sudan:

    Bought these to replace 10 year old Merrill's that had served me well. Have been on two 4k hikes thus far. Great fit, no break in required at all. Completely waterproof in my various stream crossings. The fit feels like custom in-soles. Highly recommend. I can't speak to durability yet but things look promising.

          The toe fit and arch support are fine. They feel solid under foot. One complaint for me is they irritate my (large) ankle bones. I now wish I purchased higher boot with larger ankle pocket. Overall though they seems to be a solid boot.

          Worth the price -- good, not phenomenal

          Comments about OBOZ Men's Bridger BDry Hiking Boots, Sudan:

          Durability: Very good
          Laces: never once came untied.
          Waterproofing: Very good so far
          Comfort: ehhhhhhh
          Fit: true to size
          Fit (other): ankle opening is too narrow
          Break-In: Not immediate.
          Grip: Slick on smooth and wet, fantastic in mud/dirt/dry
          Odor Control: one hike and they were FOUL

          I bought these upon the recommendation of an avid hiker Eagle Scout buddy of mine when I said I needed boots for a climb up Mt. Fuji later this summer. I took them out of the box and put them on at the local trailhead. Not uncomfortable, but not glorious. After 5 miles my feet were sore. They've broken in more since and are getting comfier, but they don't have the immediate break-in that other Oboz reviews rave about.

          I've used these on concrete/paved trails, dirt hikes, fishing trips, and in weather ranging from 38F - 70F. Great temperature control. With standard athletic socks my feet remained just right and never wet.

          The laces are sturdy and have yet to come untied mid-hike. Additionally, the lacing system makes tension adjustment really easy to manage. Pleasantly surprised.

          My biggest complaint after the first few uses was the odor. I don't have stinky feet normally, but after the first hike these were awful. I added a healthy dose of Gold Bond and let them dry for a few days. After that, everything was good. I wore them 7 days straight on a fishing trip and for two international flights. I kicked off my shoes mid-flight for comfort and expected the worst but nothing lingered. Maybe the smell is temporary.

          My minor complaint is the ankle opening. The left boot seemed narrower than the right (perhaps my feet are asymmetrical). With standard socks the opening is tight -- with thicker socks I expect real effort to put the boot on.

          I would easily recommend these to a friend but I'd caution them to a few, small, break-in hikes before going on a long expedition. I wouldn't hesitate to buy anoter model of Oboz boot, either. So far I'm impressed.

          Searched for a quality boot that could go from box to hike and I found it in this boot. Went to buy for son and ended buying one for spouse as well once he saw the quality and found the fit to be great -1/2 size up for both with under amour socks.

              I have not taken these boots outside yet. Given the initial fit out of the box, I think these boots will be very good for hiking.
              I am a frequent hiker and from experience, if a boot does not feel good at the start there is a problem down the road.
              I also own another pair of boots by this company which have serve me well.

                Tried the boots on and they fit perfectly with my wool hiking socks. Really comfortable right out of the box. Light weight but seem like they'll last. Have been looking for a waterproof pair of hiking boots and these are going to turn out to be my every day shoes.

                  I have tried almost every brand out there and this boot by far is the best one out there in my opinion. Although Oboz is a relatively new brand, from what I've read the creators of this brand are former designers for Merrill and Keen that have combined their knowledge in creating a tremendous product. What they have come up with is a warm, lightweight, water resistant boot with tremendous traction. From the first moment you put these boots on they feel like they have already broken in for you. No complaints here and will look to Oboz for my next pair.
