The lightweight and breathable Oboz Crest Low BDry trail shoe is equipped with waterproof protection and a high-performance sole package that readies it for long days of technical hiking.
Constructed of abrasion-resistant mesh and synthetic leather overlays, the shoe’s upper delivers support and stability without requiring a long break-in period. A BDry tape-sealed bootie provides waterproof protection while still helping to breathe and wick sweat to keep you cool and dry. Rubber-coated toes and heels ward off the worst of mud and debris while an elastic retention strap locks your heel comfortably and securely in place. A wide toe box gives your foot some roominess where it’s most likely to need it. A speed lacing system helps to keep weight to a minimum while allowing you to easily dial in fit.
Under foot, the boot’s compression molded EVA foam midsole, PU heel pod, and nylon shank provide comfortable cushioning, flexibility, and weight-hauling stability. A high-performance BFit Deluxe 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, arch support, and moisture-wicking materials. EVA Super Skin (ESS) forefoot armoring further protects feet from the impact of rocks, roots, and other uneven terrain. The durable and deep-lugged Thru-Hiker outsole ensures excellent traction and its grippy surface delivers reliable performance on varying terrain.
The Oboz Crest Low BDry hiking shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great fitting shoe with just the right amount of support for day hikes
Likes: I have a narrow B width foot and and the Oboz Crest was easy to get comfortable in by snugging up the lacing. No heel slippage with adequate forefoot room. These shoes seem to breathe well enough even with waterproof lining. A big plus for me is that I don’t need to immediately get them off after a hike to give my feet a break. The tread pattern on the sole grips well in dry and loose over hard terrain. I think the midsole protection plate does a good job of blunting the poke of sharp stones under the forefoot. Overall very happy with the purchase of these day hikers.
Dislikes: It is hard to find a sole pattern that works in all conditions. This hiker packs up mud and does not shed, soon you are walking around with the proverbial concrete shoes.
