A lightweight, breathable, and surprisingly rugged option for thru-hikers or any trail explorer, the Oboz Men’s Scapegoat Mid boot has an all synthetic upper and a grippy, durable outsole package that delivers reliable day-after-day performance.
Constructed of mesh and synthetic leather overlays, the upper of the Men’s Scapegoat Mid hiking boot delivers nice support and stability while breathing far better and breaking in much more quickly than traditional leather boots. A rubber coated toe and heel ward off the worst of mud and debris while an elastic collar keeps scree from getting in over the top of the boot. A wide toe box gives your foot some roominess where it’s most likely to need it.
Under foot, the boot’s compression molded EVA foam midsole 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 rubber outsole has excellent traction and a grippy surface that delivers performance on varying terrain.
The Oboz Men’s Scapegoat Mid boot is available in men’s full and half sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- A quality made shoe!
Likes: Great fit, and firm sole and overall, a great hiking shoe for the price.
Dislikes: I ended up returning this shoe; not for the quality, but because I realized living in SoCal, I wanted a lighter hiking shoe option for the overall temperate climate here.
