        I've owned at least a half dozen serious pairs of footwear for hiking. On the maiden 25 mile with backpack outing these boots were the most comfortable and driest ever. No blisters. Even better, absolutely no toe jamming.

        I bought these boots in Alaska when my Keen's blew out. I did notice a slight discrepancy in the sizing. I wear a 12 shoe but I have to wear a 11. These boots had no time to break in, they were on the trail right out of the box. With that said I didn't experience any discomfort. The tread design and material keeps you glued to those exposed rock ascents. "B" Dry waterproofing not only keeps your feet dry but wicks the moisture away from your feet. Because of this it also keep your feet cool on those hot muggy days on the trail. WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY!

            Comments about Oboz 1022306 OBOZ Men's Yellowstone II WP Hiking Boots:

            I have larger feet where some size 13 boots almost fit and some size 12 almost fit. A 12.5 would probably be a sure fit, but those aren't made. I had previously tried a low cut pair of Oboz hiking shoes, however, while the fit was great, they pitched me forward, which was enough to feel awkward.

            Fast forward 6 months later getting back to finding a pair of boots, and while trying a number of different mid-height boots, I landed on these. Perfect! Size 12 fits well, lots of toe room, and solid ankle and foot support. I find myself wearing these almost daily, and on the trail they do what they are supposed to do. They do require some break-in. I even bought a second pair for when these wear out, they fit that well.

              Comments about Oboz 1022306 OBOZ Men's Yellowstone II WP Hiking Boots:

              Again, not 'avid' - just part of my job as a (now) retried U Professor to be outside a lot doing mopho-geography/geology focused on call it Northern Nevada. Before I said I didn't LOVE these boots, especially after the old EMS boots I had for years. ----- now I can say just a few more things: 1) -- I stopped messing with all the new 'high tech' socks everyone said I needed and went back to my old 'tube' cotton socks -- WOW! -- AMAZING! -- They became even more comfortable and a LOT cooler in Nevada in late July/early August even after I soaked them with water proofing. Now I WOULD NOT WEAR THESE IN DEEP SNOW - that is snow deeper than call it 3-4 inches because it would over-flow the water-proof part -- but the cotton sure keeps the heat and moisture build up down. 2) -- I've (I think) expanded the type of use they can be used for - I loved to wear my old boots at work and then in the field, no getting used to a 'new' feel. These are comfortable and not too hot for every-day use. They have been SOAKED a few times when I've crossed streams where I KNEW they'd get wet -- but a wipe down, a few minutes in the sun, and a dry pair of socks fixed everything back to normal -- so in summer they can get soaked and dry out fast enough to keep moving, but I would not do that in winter or really stormy, wet, COLD conditions -- maybe high-tech socks would help, but the amount of water-proofing I put on my boots may prevent that. 3) -- After maybe 500 miles (guessing here of course) souls are showing a tiny bit of wear, some cuts from lavic rock (and a few shallow 'cuts' on the rubber uppers), but they don't leak, and I've come to trust them on nearly any surface I'm on -- if it was walking down the hall to get to a class or taking grad students out into the Great Basin or up into the Cascade/Sierra that 'narrow' box toe doesn't bother me as much as it used to. And I am AMAZED AT THEIR TRACTION ON ALL SURFACES -- EVEN DAMP SMOOTH ROCKS!!!! ------ BOTTOM LINE: A) -- worried about the cloth gussets the laces go through even though they don't YET show wear and tear B) -- WHEN I CHANGED TO COTTON TUBE SOCKS THE BOOTS BEGAN TO FEEL MORE LIKE BOOTS!! --- I don't LOVE these boots yet, but I like them a LOT - enough to spend a few moments here adding to my review and pointing out that plain old tube cotton socks work best fore ME when I'm out and about - and they don't take any care at all. The Boot's been water-proofed and forgotten - the fact that I don't even think about the boot is maybe the highest praise I can add to my original post - cotton socks and I don't even think about the boot holding me or me and a sack of rocks over any kind of surface. But I don't think they will be better than those Canadian Winter Boots they make for super cold weather and super wet snow. I'd not trust these boots in that kind of environment, but they were not built for that - so if you stick to what they were built for, you'll be fine -- and think about tube cotton socks if you feel your feet are too hot, or of you spill water into them because you had to cross a stream/river -- just dry them out for a bit, you probably need a break anyway! --

                This is my 3rd pair of Yellowstone II's....I totally wore out the first two pairs, since I hike several hundred miles per year. I have virtually no break-in problem with these, they are so comfortable. I really like the super-grabby soles that are great on all surfaces, though they do wear a bit faster than harder rubber. I'd like a slightly stiffer plate under the forefoot since, as the sole wears down, pointed rocks become more noticeable. But this is really a minor problem. Free shipping got to me in about 4 days!

                    Got these to replace my teva raiths, which was an amazing shoe, but only lasted one year before I blew them out.
                    So far, these boots are extremly comfortable and waterproof, I haven't wore them hiking yet as there is some break in for these. They came quite stiff but I'm working them quite nicely.
                    Only 4 out of 5 stars now until I test on a real hike
