I'm very happy with this show so far. I've worn them on a couple of long walks and find them comfortable. The toe box is roomy and the heel doesn't slip. It has very good arch support. I ended up buying a 9.5M. I usually wear a 9M.

This is my second pair, but I got the wide this time and they are perfect. First had the 9.5 in black & really liked the all over charcoal scheme. The toe box was a little snug for me, had to trim toenails short and there wasn't much wiggle room but size 10 was too big in the ankle and heel. They feel so nimble & the rolled heel makes walking so smooth. After two years of outdoor field work in mud, rain, sand, they blew out on the sides of the forefoot. They were waterproof for a long time, even in downpours and standing in a packhouse with hoses spraying everywhere. The 9.5 wide fits PERFECT. Larger toe box, but not a noticeably wider sole or heel, which is just what I needed. I wasn't sure I'd like the brown color, but its really muted, like chocolate. These are my favorite boots. Really love the smooth design of the uppers with minimal stuff going on. Thoughtfully designed, really shaped to fit a foot, and just love the rounded heel! Too many boots have a big chunky squared heel that feels like it jolts my leg when I walk, like Keens. I wear a women's 10.5 shoes, 11 in boots,or EU 42, but often find myself trying on men's shoes to get the width.

I bought these boots for some serious day hiking and light backpacking. I was looking for something a little more structured than my Keens, but not overly heavy. Break in period was minimal and after a few 5-10 mile hikes I did 25 miles over the CD trail in RMNP, CO. At about the 22 mile mark my feet were tired and I should have stopped to check my boots. As they loosened up I got some rocks in the heels of my socks and they rubbed blisters. I was able to put the same boots on the next 3 days of my trip and continue hiking without pain. I've worn the boots several miles since w/o trouble. Boots do run 1/2 size to full size smaller and maybe on the narrower side, which fit my needs. Felt very safe in all terrain and kept my feet dry through many creek and stream crossings. Love the red color!

Comfortable trail shoe that didn't require a breaking in period. They seemed to run 1/2 size small and will fit a narrow/normal width foot. I have flat feet and these provide good arch support and a deep heel cup to to stabilize the foot. If you like a cushy insole these are not the shoes for you. That being said, you can remove the insole and replace with another type of insole. These are my first trail shoes and the nice folks at Oboz were so patient in answering my questions and helping me select the correct shoes.

These are very nice boots. The footbed seemed really hard so I bought good quality insoles in place of original ones. The boots are nice and comfortable with them. Boots seem to hold up well under heavy use even.

This is my second pair of Oboz, and the reason I keep coming back is the great construction, soles and wide toebox. I have plantar fasciitis as well as bunions, so a wide toe box is a must, as well as having great shock absorption in the heel, which Oboz definitely delivers. These also fit what I was looking for in a summer hiking shoe- ventilated, non-waterproof so my feet don't melt, and great, grippy sole. I do with they came in different colors however. And, as anyone with Oboz shoes knows, the insert is very supportive but also extremely stiff. I put a pair of memory foam Aetrex inserts into my Oboz which my feet appreciate.

My first pair of OBOZ!! Wow! From the beginning they fit my foot well and did not need break in time. Immediately went on a hike and they were awesome. I wear them every day because they are so comfortable and they give me a very stable feeling. From hiking, horse barn, vineyard work, they fit every activity well. So glad I spent the money and got them. I just ordered by husband a pair and hope he loves them as much as I do.

These shoes are a good match for my foot type. I wear size 10.5, but usually have to order 11s to get a proper fit. I ordered 10.5 and it actually fits great. The Oboz Sawtooth has ample toe box without sacrificing a snug fit in the ankle.

Well constructed, thick leather, sturdy shoe. Am still breaking in but fairly comfortable. Had to get a thicker insole to take up space as they seem a touch wider than my usual brands which are Vasque, Salomon, Teva, and Columbia. The loops holding the shoelaces are kinda tight...I can see difficulty threading them when it comes time to replace.

I have a narrow foot. The insole did not fit the shape of my foot--it felt like there was a lump under my heel. I probably could have done something about that, but the underside of the tongue was lumpy and sharp edged. It was also thin with little padding and you could feel the laces through it. It started to irritate the top of my foot after just a few minutes trying it on at home. I purchased 1/2 size larger than my street shoes --which I normally do in these type of shoes--and the length was fine. I tested the grip on some wet tiles and they didn't slip, so I was disappointed that I could not keep them. I was hoping to replace some older Merrells which were slippery.

I wanted to love these boots because they're so cute, but back they go. The Oboz is a more structured hiking boot. You definitely feel secure and solid wearing them. They have a roomy toe box, but I was immediately aware of the arch support. A bit too much arch for me! If you need a lot of arch support, this might be the boot for you. As for sizing-- It's just a bit on the small side. I'd say if you're in between sizes and are planning to wear hiking socks, you might want to go up a 1/2 size.

Love these running shoes! Perfect right out of the box. They've been great for trail running as well as walking all day. The arch feels fine. The toe box is wide which I like. They look is great too. I would buy this brand again.

Just got these yesterday and used them today. Felt great right out of the box! Good support, stability and comfort. I use these types of shoes mostly for walking. Definitely squeeks on bare floors when the soles are wet.

They didn't fit me right, the sides rubbed against my ankle bones. I don't think breaking in will help with that so returning them.

Hiking shoes are almost as bad as trying on jeans, but worse because you need to wear them around a while to know if they really fit. To add to the problem, I find that stores are not carrying a very big inventory so you may find a style you like but they don't have your size, or they only have a couple of brands to try. I wanted to buy from a store where I could actually have them on my feet but after 3 visits to 3 different stores, I was very frustrated. My husband bought a pair of Oboz and loved them immediately. He talked about them for days so I decided to try them. I wanted a hiking shoe with all the support of my hiking boots but a less boot look. I like to wear on the airplane when flying to hike to keep my packing light and the boots, well they looked like boots! These are handsome and the ONLY thing I would like is maybe not possible - a hiking shoe with the brawn these have with a slightly "lighter" look. But the most important thing is comfort and these excel. I need a wider toe box and these accommodated my foot perfectly. I tried on the size smaller in the store and they felt funny, not really small, but the bottom of my foot was not hitting the curves correctly. The next size up and the same size as my boots in another brand fixed that issue. I have not worn these for days and they feel the same and perfect. The bottoms are substantial, the ankle support feels great for a shoe, and the shoe addresses my tendency to overpronate.

I've had these for over a year now and they are quality built and very durable. For outdoor shoes these were my first departure from Merrells and in terms of quality and durability, these are a much better shoe. I haven't worn other Oboz but these are quite stiff without much cushion. The heel pocket is quite high and at times they feel tippy in the ankle. I'd buy Oboz again for sure but would want to try other models to find a more comfortable fit. Overall I'm happy

A great crossover shoe. Very comfortable right out of the box, although I use replacement insoles. A superior quality to my previous Merrill Moab's.

I am impressed with Oboz Sawtooth shoes. I bought the wide and they fit perfectly right out of the box. Walk daily these shoes are very kind to my feet. And getting them from Zappos was quick and easy. Thanks, Zappos!

Not my favorite colour. I didn't want brown, but these shoes had excellent ratings for my high arches. I will return and get a half size larger shoe. These ratings and this review are only after my first wearing of the shoe. Once I get the correct size, then my review will hopefully be more positive. :)

This is my 4th pair of Oboz, from low cut breathable hiker to lite trail shoe, & second light hiking boot. I have a wider than average forefoot and narrow heel. This brand just fits well, and has been comfortable in all these different lasts.
