Excellent traction

With the boot’s Sawtooth outsole (an Oboz exclusive), adventurers can take on different types of terrain with ample amounts of slip and skid resistance. It is covered with self-cleaning lugs, strategically placed at key locations to grant users enough traction whether they are moving downhill, uphill, or laterally.

Responsive cushioning

This Oboz gear has a dual-density midsole made of ethylene-vinyl acetate for stability and cushioning. The material used in its creation (ethylene-vinyl acetate or EVA) makes it resilient and springy enough to effectively absorb shock on every landing.

Supportive and stable cushioning

Within its medial zone lies a nylon shank—a component that doubles down on support and stability. A company-owned footbed called O Fit Insole sits atop the Sawtooth Mid BDry’s midsole. This moisture-wicking insert is engineered with multiple densities to give users a combination of cushioning and support underfoot.

The Oboz Sawtooth Mid BDry’s upper is primarily made of two materials—waterproof nubuck leather and scuff-resistant textile. It is breathable on the inside yet watertight on the outside all thanks to B-Dry, Oboz’s proprietary waterproofing technology.

Secure lockdown

A secure and precise lockdown is made possible with the help of the boot’s lacing system. Its classic design has a unique twist to it in that the top eyelets are open hooks, allowing wearers to make some final configurations with relative ease.
