Oboz Footwear hails from the USA, where it’s currently a popular and thriving brand. Founded on a philosophy that everything they do should be “True to the Trail”, the company has been designing footwear which incorporates a number of technologies that work hard to ensure the wearer keeps comfortable on the trail. From their proprietary BDry waterproof lining, roomy toe boxes allowing for extra wiggle room, to their grippy rubber outsoles with toothy mud and dirt shedding lugs, the thoughtful features have been developed to allow for maximum wear time.
Every pair of Oboz footwear comes fitted with a quality, supportive insole with a sculpted arch and heel cup which work together to offer cushioning and support and aims to put and retain your foot in a neutral position, thus preventing the foot from pronating and elongating with every step, a possible cause of friction and blisters.
A hiking shoe that offers trail performance in a light weight package, the Oboz Arete Low BDry offers medium volume fit with a narrow heel to eliminate slippage and the possibility of blisters, but offers a wide forefoot and toe box to provide toes with ample room for movement. The shoe has a technical seamless, no sew construction with a breathable water resistant mesh upper with DWR treatment and a breathable and waterproof membrane. With TPU overlays and a sculpted rubber toe cap for durability, this is a shoe that will provide you with superior fit, comfort and support.
