Who should buy the Oboz Sawtooth II Mid BDry
The Sawtooth II Mid BDry delivers a set of qualities that will endear it to any hiker. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a shoe that is engineered as a mid-cut waterproof boot primarily for day hikes.
- Prefer a shoe that delivers a multi-directional grip on challenging terrain.
- Prefer a shoe that has a personalized closure system and secure lockdown.
Users can tackle virtually all types of terrain with this day hiking boot’s non-marking Sawtooth outsole. Its profile is filled with a pattern of aggressive lugs designed after the Sawtooth mountain range in Sun Valley, Idaho. There are lugs found on the outsole’s side which provides lateral traction to the wearer. The sole’s front end also extends upwards for extra protection against stubbing.
Excellent rigidity and support
Oboz’ Sawtooth II Mid BDry features a dual-density EVA midsole to create a cushioned ride. It also lessens the amount of impact with every step the user makes. A nylon shank is present within the midsole component to boost the footwear’s rigidity and support.
Excellent arch support
The brand’s patented O Fit footbed sits on top of the Sawtooth midsole. It contains varying densities of EVA foam to render extra cushioning and arch support.
The footbed’s top layer also wicks excess moisture to keep the wearer’s foot dry and comfortable.
The Oboz Sawtooth II Mid waterproof upper is made of nubuck leather and nylon mesh panels. These materials imbue the footgear with durability and breathability. A BDry membrane lines the upper to stand guard against the entry of water into the gear. It also allows excess moisture to pass through.
Easy to put on and off
The boot’s heel counter and toe cap are reinforced to counter abrasive elements. Its closure system consists of fabric eyelets and metal hooks that allow the wearer to configure the footwear’s fit. A pull tab is positioned at the back of the boot to permit an easy on and off.
