With hybrid leather and synthetic construction, an aggressive outsole, a waterproof/breathable lining, and a truly comfortable fit, the Men’s Bridger Low BDry hiking shoe proudly reflects the “true to the trail” motto of Oboz.
While the Nubuck full-leather upper delivers the support and stability you’d expect, pliable, forgiving materials around the heel deliver comfort and allow the shoes to break in faster than all-leather models. A BDry tape-sealed polyurethane bootie provides waterproof protection while still helping to breathe and wick sweat to keep you cool and dry. Fabric and metal hardware combine to give the Bridger Low BDry’s lacing system excellent durability and fit adjustability. A wide toe box gives your foot some roominess where it’s most likely to need it.
Under foot, the boot’s dual-density EVA foam and nylon shank provide comfortable cushioning, flexibility, and weight-hauling stability. A high-performance insole is a cut above what you’ll find in most boots, providing plush EVA foam under the heel and forefoot, a shock-absorbing and stability-enhancing heel cup and arch support, and moisture-wicking materials.
The rubber outsole has toothy traction-enhancing side lugs and 4mm directional lugs that provide confident footing on-trail or off. A lightweight TPU chassis enhances stability and helps absorb some of the impact of rocks and roots hat could otherwise lead to bruising.
The Oboz Men’s Bridger Low BDry hiking shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- Really protective hiking shoe
Likes: -amazing toe protection
-Oboz classifies this as a "medium" volume shoe, but I found it plenty secure even for my low volume feet
Dislikes: -really heavy for a low hiker - men's size 12 weights roughly 20.5 oz. per shoe
-heel wasn't comfortable for me - the back of my heel felt really sore when walking up inclines with these shoes on
-had more trouble getting a locked down heel fit than with the firebrand ii, which has 7 eyelets per side, while the Bridger low has only 5 eyelets per side
-The Bridger Low has a firmer underfoot feel than the Firebrand II. I was looking for something a little softer than the Bridger underfoot.
- Love these boots
Likes: I had purchased a pair of the Bridger Mid hiking boots a few months earlier for backpacking and absolutely loved them. I wanted a pair of low cuts to wear on day hikes when not carrying weight. Both offer good ankle support, a firm sole, very comfortable with virtually no break in time. I have a narrow heel and I have never had a boot fit so well.
Dislikes: Only that I wished I had found these boots earlier.
- Great Shoes
Likes: I have numerous pairs of Oboz. Love the shoes. The Bridgers have a bit more support and stiffness than some of the Oboz, but I love the support. Good looks, great support, good toe room, Great shoes.
Dislikes: Not a one....
- Very good performer but...
Likes: Good Design, solid build for (Hiking) performance
Good Foot/Toe Protection
Dislikes: But...Requires Break-in, which was not the case with the mid-Hiker Bridger Oboz Boots I purchased...otherwise a 5 Star
- Great shoes, but really stiff outsole
Likes: Comfortable and very sturdy for the weight. Love the Oboz insole; great value addition. Aggressive tread on the outsole and good traction. Overall a really good shoe for the trails.
Dislikes: The outsole is really stiff and dense. This is likely a plus in a lot of cases but for me I find that my legs and feet fatigue a bit faster with the shock from such a stiff outsole so could only give it 4 stars.
