I bought these shoes for everyday wear and they have been fantastic. It is a little weird getting used to the insoles but after a day of wear they feel great and I will look into their hiking boots for this summer

Shadow Colorway Does Not Match Photo

The color of the photo for the "shadow" colorway is not accurate. I purchased and found the actual color to be much darker. I would describe the "shadow" colorway as more of a black scheme with dark gray accents, while the photo makes it appear more of a medium gray. I returned without using, though in my evaluation I did find the shoe to be incredibly comfortable and well fitting right out of the box (like most other Oboz I have tried). Foot bed seems very broad and stable, especially given the featherweight construction. Naturally wide toe box for which Oboz is well known fit my wider foot without the need need for a "wide" size. Would have loved to add to my hiking shoe collection and expect it would have made a great warm weather hiking addition. I just didn't care for the "shadow" colorway for reasons stated.

Great Shoes!

Love this shoe. Fits my foot better than any other Oboz. a little lower profile/volum, but not super low volume like sportiva. Still has a average width toebox, but with a little less volume over the instep it feels more secure on my foot. Its also much lighter on foot than traditional hiking shoes. Love them!
