Secure footing on wet and dry surfaces

Slip prevention and traction on most types of surfaces are handled by the Oboz Bridger Low BDry’s Granite Peak outsole. It has a series of 4mm-deep lugs to give the user a secure footing on wet and dry surfaces.

Supportive cushioning

The Oboz Bridger Low BDry features a Granite Peak dual-density EVA midsole which provides supportive cushioning. A nylon shank is placed in the midfoot area for extra support and rigidity. Torsional stability is granted by the shoe’s thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) chassis.

Excellent arch support

This low-cut hiker is also equipped with the brand’s patented multi-density O Fit insole. The entire unit has medium-density EVA for underfoot support. The forefoot section contains low-density EVA pods which grant additional cushioning. The heel cup and sculpted arch are made of high-density EVA foam. The former delivers support and enhances natural cushioning, and the latter maintains the neutral position of the foot. The unit is topped with a layer that’s engineered to wick moisture away.

Waterproof and breathable

The Oboz Bridger Low BDry wraps the user’s foot inside a durable nubuck leather and abrasion-resistant textile upper. The upper is both waterproof and breathable, thanks to a BDry membrane lining it. It has a toe cap upfront for added protection while a molded counter is found at the rear to hold the heel in place.
