The mercury drops but you still want to explore. Bite back this winter, in the Bridger Insulated Hiking Boots from Oboz. A precision fit is supplemented with 200g Thinsulate insulation, a wool-topped BFit Thermal Footbed and a winter-specific outsole. Grab your headlamp and a Thermos, you don't have to come back inside until you're good and ready.
The upper of the Oboz Bridger B-DRY 7" Insulated Women's Walking Shoes is constructed with a waterproof all nubuck leather which provides maximum durability and support. Equipped with Oboz B-DRY which keeps the feet dry through creeks, mud, rain and sweat, thanks to three key components. Firstly, the crux which is Oboz's proprietary tape-sealed polyurethane film bootie, which waterproofs shoes but still lets sweat escape, secondly, all of Oboz B-DRY shoes come with hydrophobic upper materials, meaning the rest of the shoe won't absorb water. Finally, the textile lining inside B-DRY boots wicks sweat away, so feet stay dry from the inside out.
To keep your feet feeling warm throughout the cold winter months, the shoes are developed with Thinsulate Insulation which works by trapping air molecules between you and the outside. The more air the material traps in a given space, the greater it's insulating value. Because the microfibres in Thinsulate insulation are far finer than other fibres, they trap more air in less space, which naturally makes it a better insulator. Lastly, the upper is fitted with a moulded heel counter which helps shoes maintain a snug, comfortable heel hold over time. Since Oboz moulds these counters, they keep their shape even through miles of abuse.
Fitted with a dual density EVA midsole, it will ensure the wearer with ultimate cushioning, providing comfort while on a long walk. Additionally, Oboz's TPU Chassis provides featherweight, effective armour underfoot, reducing stone bruising and torsional twist. The midsole also features a nylon shank which is extremely supportive, lightweight and flexible so you'll be able to move more easily with these in place. They give just enough bend to create a more natural movement in your feet, and there's plenty of support to help ease some stress in your arches.
Built with purpose - for big summits, long days, quick jaunts and urban strolls. The quintessential hiking outsole, features a nylon shank for stability, toothy side lugs that hug off-camber trails, and 4mm directional lugs studding the sole.
