I love shoes. Especially rugged outdoor great for walking in town but equity at home on a trail sort of shoes. These OBOZ… are quite possibly the best shoe I’ve ever worn. Go buy them now.

Stay in the Suburbs. I have a pair of Firebrand and Windriver shoes and absolutely love the fit and durability. They are worth the price because of the fit and durability alone. I love them…… BUT……when it gets wet or icy they do not get good traction. Wet rocks and side hills are treacherous. Dry, everything is good. Wet and it is like you are on roller skates. I love them and use them nearly every day especially in the mountains hunting. BUT, when it gets wet I struggle to maneuver safely on rocks and hillsides and hiking along rocky creek banks you take your life in your own hands. Suburban hiking, great. Serious dry mountain and any rough terrain, great, fabulous. Wet conditions, hang on. I do love them though.

Good choice. I bought my Oboz Firebrand 2s a year ago. I have worn them golfing, hiking and to work. After a year they look terrific and feel terrific. These are tough to wear out. I got mine on sale for 79 bucks almost a year ago at L.L. Bean. I like them so much I got a second pair for the same price. What a steal. You cannot beat them .

Thanks for the review. Just ordered mine from Moosejaw.

Emanuel Goldstein says:

I had to return mine. They are dangerously slippery on wet smooth surfaces(My apartment has a painted front walkway and none of my other shoes/boots do it). These things are incredibly comfortable and I am bummed out. Maybe I picked up a defective pair….

Joe Dubiel says:

Good review. I have two pairs of these. I got mine from L.L.Bean on the labor day sale. There were on sale for 80 bucks. So,,,,, I picked up two pairs. 🙂 Honestly the best shoes I have ever owned. Cannot say enough good things about these shoes. Even if you pay the regular price of 140 bucks they are worth every last penny!

Super cool info. I have my first pair on the way. I have 6 pairs of Salomons. I’m excited

T Mac says:

Great review. I have a pair of these shoes. I LOVE them.

Oboz is going to own the market if the other companies stand pat!

Oh..oooh….Oh God please santa ……!

Christopher Conrad says:

Just bought a pair at our local outfitter, love them! Fit great, hard sole but not too hard!

Good review. But allow me one sugestion: you might want to take one step back in next videos so we can actually see more of the shoe being reviewed. 😉 thanks, keep it up.

Neal Davis says:

Thank you for the review, Jason! You certainly piqued my interest in Oboz Firebrand II hiking shoes. The price is daunting, but acceptable for a shoe as excellent as you describe. Thanks again and have a safe and enjoyable trip down the east coast.
