Oboz Firebrand II Hiking Shoes Review

May 26, 2023

The oboz firebrand ii hiking shoes review is a great shoe for hikers who want great support and do not mind the extra weight. They have a great outsole, are waterproof, and will last for years. However, they are a little heavy for some people and may not provide as much protection as other shoes. They are also a little expensive for what they offer. They are a good choice for day hiking on hard surfaces, but may not be ideal for hikers who spend a lot of time off trail.

The Firebrand II Low BDry has all the versatility of our Sawtooth in a lower-volume profile. Waterproof nubuck leather and abrasion-resistant mesh encase a tough, supportive chassis that is ready for all conditions and every adventure.

A torsionally rigid nylon shank stiffens the sole, adding stability to off-camber maneuvers, while dual-density EVA foam provides ground stability and underfoot cushioning. The classic Sawtooth outsole sheds mud, delivers intense traction and maintains stability with sidewall lugs that grip trails as you move.

Oboz recognizes the terrible quality of the standard insoles that most shoes and boots include and, not being a company to scrimp on features, include their own O Fit Insoles in the Firebrand II. These insoles have levels of arch support and ergonomics comparable to good quality aftermarket insoles, saving you the expense of buying a pair separately.
