Oboz Footwear

I discovered Oboz by accident on my 2009 SOBO hike of the PCT. I ordered a pair and they lasted 900 miles, which was especially great in contrast with one pair or a bigger brand shoe that only made it 120 miles! Durability is a huge factor when it comes to my footwear, since I love the natural world & want to reduce my consumption of resources and landfill space. As my hiking life and Oboz have grown and changed over the years, our relationship has, too. Currently I am not part of the Oboz trail ambassador program, but I still wear and highly recommend their shoes.
