Oboz Tech Specs

Oboz likes to say “it’s what’s on the inside that counts,” and we couldn’t agree more!  Danform fit experts LOVE the Oboz fit because once customers put it on their feet, they just don't want to take them off.  From hikers on the trail to techs at the desk, Oboz is a brand you'll wear over and over.

WHY DO OBOZ FEEL SO GOOD ON MY FEET?

Every Oboz shoe is built from research on real feet.  The design begins with the last, or mold, that is the basis of each shoe.  Oboz analyzed LOTS of feet to engineer a last that is universally well fitting.

 Oboz shoes are made in medium and wide widths featuring a deep cupped heel and a roomy toebox to follow the anatomically-true-barefoot-in-the-sand natural flow of your footprint.
