Sawtooth II Mid B-Dry Hiking Boot

Just as comfortable thru-hiking the PCT as it is exploring the basic trails in your local park, the versatile Oboz Men's Sawtooth Mid B-Dry Hiking Boot ensures a natural rolling motion on flat, smooth trails, as well as waterproof, breathable protection and a lugged, high-friction outsole for when the forecast promises heavy rains and sloppy trails.

The nubuck leather upper is equipped with a B-Dry membrane to ensure that you'll be dry (get it?) when splashing through puddles or crossing babbling brooks, while a mesh, moisture-wicking lining keeps things breathable and sweat-free. The O-Lite insole combines low-density EVA pods with a high-density EVA sculpted arch to place your foot in a neutral position with cushioned comfort to handle endlessly rocky trails with stability. A nylon shank further adds to the stability to take on steeper slopes and uneven ground, while a 3D heel cup provides support and improves natural cushioning to keep you going through the last few miles. Rounding things out, the Sawtooth rubber outsole has toothy sidewall lugs to bite muddy terrain with traction while still conserving weight.

  • Off road boats that thrive during wet shoulder seasons
  • B-Dry membrane keeps water out while you slosh up the trail
  • Nubuck and mesh upper is resistant to water and breathable
  • O Fit insole is supportive, cushioned, and comfortable
  • EVA midsole absorbs impact for happy feet all the way home
  • Sawtooth outsole sheds mud and offers impressive traction

Best boots I have ever had including $500+! Size does not run true, 1/2 size small and narrower than normal. Had to order from another co. because back country didn't have my size and I haven't received my refund even though they confirmed the return. Awesome boots! No hotspots even after 10+ mile rock scramble 4k up and down hike! Did I mention awesome boots?!!!

UPDATE: Almost 3 weeks in with the boots. Pro: Very stable and excellent support but still flexible. Waterproofing not fully tested by standing in a stream but no rain got in on a very rainy day hike. Looks much better than the pictures show. It's not a neon bright green stripe and accents. Comfortable overall. Con: Laces dont stay tight. I have to re-tie a few times each hike. I'm going to contact Oboz and ask for any suggestions or replacement laces. Hot spot for me on right heel. The middle of the back heel area has a seam and the stitching is a little rough. This may be a personal issue as all feet are different. Using moleskin for now and will ween off as my foot gets used to it. As of now it is the best boot I have tried out of the Merrell Moab 2, Soloman X Ultra 3, Keen Targhee 3, Northface Hedgehog and Columbia Redmond. Of all these boots, the Oboz was the right fit for me. --------------------------------------------- I'm a 13 in some things and 14 in others. The 14 was too big and the 13 is borderline too small. So frustrating. The boot itself appears to be a great boot. Seems well constructed and gets good reviews. I'm going to try the 13 to see if it breaks in and fits better after a week or two. Just make a 13.5 please. For the love of all that is holy. Make a 13 and a half!!!!

Still waiting

After ordering these shoes on November 28, I am still waiting to receive the boots (Dec 4), when I received your shipping notice that these are shipped with OnTrac I was ready for a delay, but a delay this long, according to OnTrac they are redelivering, they never tried to deliver it in the first place, my boots were in NV, according to their website arrive in Reno at 7:53 PM, this is 180 miles from my home....please use a better shipper then OnTrac, and because of that I won’t be ordering anything from Backcountry.

GEAR REVIEWS WHICH OBOZ IS RIGHT FOR ME: BRIDGER MID OR SAWTOOTH MID? BACK TO GEAR REVIEWS The ultimate goal when it comes to proper hiking footwear is finding something that allows you to forget about your footwear so you can focus on other things, like the hike, your breath and the view. That’s why finding the right hiking boot is so important. Often, when it comes to hiking anything more than an easy trail, many people prefer a mid-height, substantial boot. The two most popular mid-size models that Oboz offers are the Bridger Mid and the Sawtooth Mid. Both will get you wherever you’re going effectively and comfortably, but each has different features that may be desirable depending on what’s most important to you. Bridger Mid It has proven to be so solid and reliable for me, particular for backpacking, because of its lightweight, ankle support, durability and comfort. The break-in is famous for being almost immediate, which is fantastic. Because of its overall quality, it’s probably the most diverse hiking boot out there and I’ve often found myself wearing mine casually in the city Sawtooth Mid BDry The aesthetic is very similar to the Bridger, but there are some differences in the design. I find it to be a narrower fit than the Bridger, and the rounder heel encourages a rolling motion that naturally keeps you engaged. It also has more of a buffer zone between the foot and the ground than the Bridger does. Depending on who you are this can be a plus or a minus—do you want your feet to absorb minimal impact or do you want to have more of a interaction with the terrain? That’s a personal call. The Bottom Line Both are awesome boots, but because the Bridget Mid feels more substantial, I prefer it for hiking in conditions that are more intense, with a lot of heavy and diverse terrain (think roots and boulders). That being said, the Sawtooths are my go-to hiking boot, simply because of their comfort. Unless I’m doing a hike where I feel like my feet need that extra support from the sturdiness of the Bridgers, I’m likely taking my Sawtooths. Bottom line: I’ve taken both through hell, without having to put my feet through hell.
