    Comments about OBOZ Men's Sawtooth Low Hiking Shoes:

    I can't say enough good things about these shoes. They are trail ready right out of the box requiring no break in time, but are still rigid enough to provide an appropriate level of support. I did a NOBO thru hike of the Appalachian Trail with two pairs of these and they hold up really well under abusive conditions, sharp rocks, and mud. They dry fast and have enough (but not too much) ventilation. The ONLY downside is that the front part of the tow rand on these tend to de-laminate pretty quickly. A great more durable option to the ever-popular (and really comfy) Merrell Moab Ventilator

      Not for My Stride

        Comments about OBOZ Men's Sawtooth Low Hiking Shoes:

        These are good-looking and I liked the fit: plenty of room in the toe box and a snug heel to prevent rubbing. However, I found them difficult to walk in, due to the rounded heel, which tended to twist just a bit with each step, and the lack of enough heel cushioning to soften impact. Maybe due to this, or maybe due to the footbed, I developed a sore heel on the first time out. I'll be returning them.

          I really like the comfort of these shoes. I wished they lasted longer, but then again 3 months at 25-30 miles a week isn't bad. When they go, they go quick. Is 300 miles too much to expect from a shoe? ( probably)Soon to get my 4th pair. Prefer them over Merrills.

              2013 AT thru hike. Bought first pair in Harpers Ferry; that pair lasted thru Vermont with some tearing up by the end of their life. Second pair lasted from Hanover, NH to Katahdin with the same amount of tearing up as the first pair in that short distance. Goes to show the wear n tear issue; shredding in same location on both boot, but that's with intense usage. I had switched from large, waterproof Solomon boots and was always a mid to high hiking boot guy..but these shoes are great. Lightweight, comfortable, dry quick, durable. I did have sole inserts tho so I don't know how that part of the shoe is.

                    I tried on an 11, my normal shoe size, and it was a little snug, so I ordered a half size up. The 11-1/2 fits great and is very comfortable.

                      I was tired of the Moab. The chameleon was not available and the sales clerk offered these as an alternative. Took them to Glacier National Park. They held up to trails very will. I did not do any backpacking so I cannot comment on that aspect. Traction, weight, construction are outstanding. I am a convert from Merrell.

                          I have done several practice hikes with 35 lbs. for 4 miles. The real test will be in a few weeks on a week long backpack in Cascades National Park. I really like the breath ability in the non gortex so far

                            Bought these for an upcoming section hike of the AT. Was looking for light weight, non-waterproof, good traction shoes. OBOZ Sawtooth Low Hiking Shoes by Oboz seem to fit the bill. I've been wearing for 3 weeks to break in, but it wasn't necessary.
