Who should buy the Oboz Tamarack BDry
The Tamarack BDry is bound to experience its remarkable portfolio of strengths. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a shoe that is crafted for tackling the trail challenges faced by hikers and backpackers.
- Prefer a shoe that features a watertight leather upper for the foot’s protection against the elements.
- Prefer a shoe that has a true-to-size fit.
With its Granite Peak outsole, the Oboz Tamarack BDry is capable of sticking to a variety of outdoor surfaces. The 4-millimeter, multi-directional lugs it comes built with are arranged in such a geometry that allows users to have a firmer foothold on loose soil and along off-camber sections of the trail.
Stable and terrain-protected ride
Giving wearers a stable and terrain-protected ride is the shoe’s dual-density EVA midsole. Oboz designers built it with two other subcomponents: a lightweight nylon shank and a chassis made of TPU.
Excellent arch support
The former improves arch support, while the latter doubles down on torsional stability and underfoot protection.
Contributing to the midsole’s ability to provide comfort is the O Fit Insole. This company-exclusive tri-density EVA footbed is anatomically designed to provide multi-zone cushioning and enhanced arch support.
Waterproof and breathable
The Oboz Tamarack BDry’s low-cut upper is made with a combination of waterproof nubuck leather and abrasion-resistant fabric. Its main bootie is imbued with BDry—a brand-owned technology that gives the shoe adequate breathability and protection against most types of wet elements.
Supportive heel counter and a protective toe cap
It comes with a supportive heel counter and a protective toe cap, both of which are made of rubber. It also has a pull loop at the heel, making it on and off fast and convenient.
