    Leather and then some.

    Leather never goes out of style, but there's more to the Oboz Bridger Mid BDry Women's Hiking Boot than its classic look. Hiding behind the nubuck leather is a BDry waterproof and breathable membrane that makes the Bridger a confident bad-weather hiker, so you can conquer tough trails at altitude, in the lowlands, and everywhere in between without your feet becoming soggy or sweaty. Oboz didn't stop with weatherproofing, though; it also included a BFit deluxe insole and EVA midsole to stabilize your arch and protect it from rocks and built the Bridger with a TPU chassis and nylon shank for increased stability on sharp and uneven terrain. A molded rubber toe cap and heel counter increase durability, and the Granite Peak rubber sole is outfitted with beefy lugs for great traction, braking, and side hill stability.

    W's Bridger vs W's Sawtooth

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I feel I’ve been training for my entire career to give this boot review. Why? Because I’m been wearing the Oboz Sawtooth Mid for EIGHT years. Eight! I’m on my third pair of these wonderful shoes, and they are the sole reason I was interested in being an Oboz ambassador. Literally every boot I have ever tried fails in comparison to this model, so when I was asked to compare the Sawtooth to the lovely Bridger boot, I was ready for the challenge.

    W's Sawtooth Mid
    Sawtooth Mid

    First, why the Sawtooth? Well, for starters, you will absolutely have zero break in period. I’ve worn 4 other brands of boots, and every one has given me at least one blister or hot spot while breaking them in. Not the Sawtooth Mid. I love this boot because it is comfortable straight out of the box and is comfortable after ten hours in the woods. I even wear this boot to my office when I’m not in the field so I feel cool (plus they really are that comfy).


    Perks: I love this boot because my feet feel SECURE. The outsole shape feels very curled around the shape of my foot, and the side lugs greatly reduce the likelihood of rolling an ankle. I would call these boots sturdy and slightly thick without feeling bulky on the foot.

    They are indeed waterproof without sweating and are consistently reliable on all forms of terrain. If you are looking for a durable, all terrain boot, this pair will give you a lot of confidence on the trail. I have only purchased the iceberg style, but the new violet is also cute. I feel like this boot may get overlooked because of its style, but, for those that care, it goes with everything.

    Bridger Mid

    In comparison, when I first slipped on the Bridger Mid, I immediately noticed that the boot feels thinner. Not thin as in poor quality, but the sole itself feels more streamlined than the Sawtooth. The boot is a tad lighter than the Sawtooth because of this (1 oz lighter), in addition to the collar being a little thinner (and ever so slightly higher than the Sawtooth). I assumed that this would mean the boot is less cushy, but that’s not the case. The most noticeable difference for me was feeling like I had less product wrapped around my heel and insole, but this did not change the durability of the boot. This boot is COMFORTABLE, and I felt equally sure-footed in the Bridger as in the Sawtooth.Ritter Collective 231

    Like with all Oboz, I have yet to have a blister. If I’m being honest, I was also super pumped to get these in Rio Red, because who doesn’t want bright red boots?! With a more traditional boot profile, some may prefer these on the style alone.

    Which One is “Right”

    How to choose between these boots?

    Fortunately, they perform very similarly, and I think the choice ultimately comes down to comfort. Those who prefer a less-stocky boot, with a slightly more flexible outsole, will appreciate the Bridger. Those who want a bit of bulk to cradle the heel, or who need a more durable outer fabric, will want the Sawtooth.

    Both are very comfortable and well suited to a variety of outdoor needs. If you blindfolded me and placed these boots on my foot, I may have a hard time telling them apart with the exception of the differences in the molded bottom, as both offer a lot of support and feel pretty similar when laced up.

    All things considered, I slightly prefer the Sawtooth given how many years I’ve been wearing this style. But, when I’m laced into the Bridger, I feel equally awesome, so you’ll have to try them both for yourself! Rest assured, however, that you’ll feel fantastic in either pair. - Imogene Cancellare

    Didn’t love

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I think this boot is fine as long as you aren’t doing any long or rocky hiking. No problem on even and up/down terrain. However not enough ankle support when you need it on challenging hikes. This boot not only bruised the side of my ankles but caused an open blister on one. Halfway thru a tough hike, I used a knife to cut the sides of the tongue and take some of the padding out (where it was rubbing) just to make it thru. :) In addition and maybe one reason they did not work for me is that they only have one hook adjustment and it is at the very top of the ankle. Not only does does this make it difficult to tighten down or loosen up, it also makes it SO hard to get in and out of! Needless to say, these boots went back as soon as I could get to a UPS store.

    Fantastic for my hiking adventures

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am an enthusiastic nature-walker and hiker. I might do a 6 mile trail slowly birding, or whip through an uphill / downhill trail in a few hours with my sister. These boots are fantastic: I really didn't have a breaking-in period, they offer ankle support, and they keep my feet warm but not tooooo warm (hot-foot sufferers, i am with you). I am also an ankle-roller and it has not happened once with these boots, even on very uneven terrain (back country hiking). They're nicely waterproof and, to me, fairly stylish. No issues as of yet with reliability, and in addition to wearing these on hikes and on job sites since November, I've just returned from a 10-day Yellowstone trip on which I wore them all day every day. I'd absolutely recommend these to anyone looking for a comfortable waterproof hiking boot with ankle support.

    Great support

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I had my left foot surgically rebuilt, then a few years later badly broke my left ankle. These are now the only shoes I can wear and they give me great support.

    O FIT Insole ™

    Our anatomically-designed insole maximizes stability and support 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 and heels adds extra protection to high-strike zones.

    O FIT Insole ™

    Oboz Granite Peak Midsole

    Nylon shank offers added support between heel and forefoot.

    Dual density EVA midsole provides supportive balanced cushioning.

    TPU chassis adds protection and torsional stability underfoot.

    Very high quality boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    I haven't been able to take these out on the trail yet, but they have been great around town! They are stiff enough to provide lots of support but they are still extremely comfortable. And they also look great which is always a bonus!

    Trail Crew Tested

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I got these shoes halfway through my season doing trail work after my first boots fell apart from the constant wear and tear. I wore these boots for a 10hour work day, everyday for 4 months and I still wear them for shorter day hikes. To say I am super impressed by the durability of these boots would be an understatement. My work days consisted of 3+ miles of hiking and hauling rocks with weekends spent going on 12+ mile backpacking trips and these boots survived it all while keeping my feet comfortable and dry. They're incredibly lightweight and durable (seriously they were really put through the ringer). I would recommend sizing up a half size as I normally wear a 7 and got these in a 7.5 and they fit perfectly. I prefer hiking boots to be a little more roomy so on those days I need thicker socks, I have some wiggle room. I would definitely recommend these boots to anyone looking for something comfortable and very lightweight, these boots are for you.


    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 6.0

    • Weight: 105lbs

    I bought these shoes for my wife, because they're pretty
    similar to the one's she needs to replace. Much lighter than her old shoes.Nice heavy tread. Shoes fit to size. But the
    tongue is not as well padded, causing pain issues.Had to return.

    Great lightweight hiking shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Women's 7
    • Height: 5'1"
    • Weight: 112lbs

    Bought for my wife, who had her foot surgically rebuilt a year and a half ago. She's understandably picky about the shoes she wears. From the moment she put these on, she's been excited to discover how comfortable, lightweight, and sturdy these hiking shoes have been.

    Best Mid Hiking Boot I've Owned!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.5
    • Height: 5'7"

    I used to be an avid lover of another outdoor footwear brand until I was introduced to Oboz. It changed my life! I bought The Bridger Mid for more ankle protection and support and they've performed amazingly. They are waterproof so my feet stay dry crossing shallow streams or getting caught in one of our afternoon mountain rain showers. I was worried about "breaking them in" before hiking, but had no problem with this at all. Straight out of the box they fit perfectly and have only improved with use. Highly recommend these!

    Unanswered Question

    I was wondering if anyone who owns the red pair, can tell me whether or not the red dye will bleed/run when the boot gets wet. I had read somewhere that this will happen but wanted to confirm.
