Who should not buy the Oboz Sypes Mid Leather Waterproof

Hikers who have stout piggies are better off with a different pair. For such adventurers, they can check out the broad-toed Sawtooth II Mid BDry, instead. Those who like tackling extra-muddy or mulchy downhills can instead bank on something more aggressive underfoot—something like the Bridger Mid BDry. Lastly, wearers looking for a durable hiking boot might have to take the Sypes Mid Leather Waterproof off their wish list. A couple of reports surfaced online that the top section, as well as the interior of its heel section, failed to last long. They might want to have a look at other mid-cut Oboz hiking boots instead.
