While others have coopted the phrase 'winter is coming', you've been privy to this fact for quite sometime. Whether you're simply accepting the inevitable or feverishly celebrating its return, the Madison's 200g Thinsulate, BFit Thermal Footbed, and winter-specific rubber outsoles will help the season feel a lot cosier.
The upper of the Oboz Madison B-DRY 7" Insulated Women's Walking Shoes is constructed with a waterproof nubuck leather and a highly abrasion resistant textile which ensures durability and support. Fitted with Oboz B-DRY which keeps the feet dry through creeks, mud, rain and sweat thanks to the three key components. The crux is Oboz's proprietary tape-sealed polyurethane film bootie, which waterproofs shoes but still lets sweat escape, secondly, all of Oboz's 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 you feeling warm throughout the cold winter months, the walking shoes are developed with Thinsulate Insulation which is the smartest choice if staying warm is important to you. The unique microfibres of Thinsulate insulation are about ten times smaller than the fibres of other synthetic insulations, which means they're much more efficient at trapping air and much more effective at keeping you warm. It also means they can pack many more of them into the same space, where they reflect back more of your body's radiant heat.
Every pair of Oboz comes outfitted with a supportive, quality insole - on par with premium aftermarket insoles, but engineered just for our shoes. Without proper support, feet tend to pronate and elongate with every step - fine you're barefoot, but not so good inside shoes, where friction can create blisters. With support from our biomechanically engineered insole, though, feet stay neutral for every step. This means less friction inside the shoe, and a better fit all around. When the weather turns cold you need a supportive and warm insole to go with your boots and shoes. Look no further than Oboz's BFit Thermal insoles. With support across all three arches of the foot to optimise strength, permit flexibility to changes in terrain and help with propulsion on the trail. These insoles also feature a wool top sheet for insulation and a Mylar bottom sheet to reflect heat back to your foot helping keep toes nice and cosy.
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.
A women's specific design, with a narrower footprint and refined profile that won't sacrifice traction. Light, nimble, and sleek, the Madison is ideal for done-in-a-day adventures.
