OBÅZBRIDGER MID BDRY
While the all-leather upper of the Bridger gives a nod to classic hikers of yore, there's nothing old-fashioned about these stats: a pliable, extra comfortable collar; a lightweight TPU forefoot plate that preserves the shoe's integrity; BDry waterproofing; metal hardware and a lightweight, aggressive outsole. Unlike the waffle stompers of our youth, the Bridger's leather goodness comes with practically no break-in time.
BFIT DELUXE INSOLES
ObÅz’s anatomically-designed BFit Deluxe insole maximizes stability and support in their backpacking boots, hikers and lifestyle shoes, with a supportive arch and a deep cushioning heel cup. Triple-density EVA throughout provides both cushioning and durability, and a shot of urethane under the metatarsals adds extra protection to high-strike zones.
1) Plush foam at the forefoot
2) Structured heel cup & arch
3) Medium density foam throughout
4) Soft touch-moisture wicking top layer
GRANITE PEAK OUTSOLE
The quintessential hiking outsole, featuring: a nylon shank for stability, toothy side lugs that hug off-camber trails and 4mm directional lugs studding the sole. A lightweight TPU chassis boosts stability and prevents stone bruising without inhibiting flex.
1) Nylon shank
2) Supportive Dual Density EVA Midsole cushioning
3) A slim-but-powerful TPU Chassis protects feet from stone bruising and sharp rocks while enhancing torsional stability underfoot.
4) Toothy carbon rubber bottom tread for superior traction and durability
BDRY WATERPROOF/BREATHABLE MEMBRANE
ObÅz’s BDry shoes keep feet dry through creeks, mud, rain and sweat, thanks to three key components:
The first is their proprietary tape-sealed polyurethane film bootee, which waterproofs shoes but still let’s sweat escape.
Second, all of their BDry shoes come with hydrophobic upper materials, meaning the rest of the shoes won’t absorb water.
And finally, the textile lining inside BDry boots wicks sweat away, so feet stay dry from the inside out.

Oboz Footwear is owned and operated by a small group of passionate industry veterans and life-long outdoor enthusiasts. They define themselves by where they live and recreate. Their name comes from "outside Bozeman." Their home base, Bozeman, Montana sits on the northern edge of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem--18 million acres of some of the wildest land in North America. It is here, in the Northern Rocky Mountains, from the Wind River and Teton Ranges to the Bridgers and Spanish Peaks, with incredibly varied geologic features, and abundant wildlife such as grizzly bears, wolves, bison, that Oboz is found. They've adopted the phrase "True to the Trail" as their guiding principle. As a new company, they're faced with direction-changing decisions every day. Filtering all of their decisions through the "True to the Trail" test helps them stay consistent with the vision that led them to create Oboz Footwear.
