An all synthetic upper, a performance outsole package, and rugged good looks combine to make the Oboz Men’s Switchback trail shoe a lightweight, durable, and breathable choice for hiking, backpacking, or every day wear.
Constructed of synthetic leather and abrasion-resistant fabrics, the upper of the Men’s Switchback mirrors the supportive durability of leather but breathes far better and breaks in much more quickly. A wide toe box gives your foot some roominess where it’s most likely to need it.
Under foot, the shoe’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 Switchback trail shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.
- The BFit Deluxe Insole stabilizes arches, protects high-impact zones, and costs nothing extra
- TPU Chassis provides featherweight, effective armor underfoot, reducing stone bruising and torsional twist
- Molded Heel Counter offers a snug heel hold
