Nimble as a multi-sport shoe, but touting the durability and traction of a hiking boot, the Oboz Men’s Firebrand II BDry shoe has a high-performance outsole, ample cushioning, and waterproof/breathable construction to tackle anything thrown at it.
The hybrid construction of Nubuck leather and high-tenacity fabrics make the upper of the Men’s Firebrand II BDry low-cut shoe extremely durable, abrasion-resistant, and breathable. The BDry tape-sealed polyurethane bootie provides waterproof protection while still helping to breathe and wick sweat to keep you cool and dry. 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 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’s aggressive, mud-shedding tread and toothy traction-enhancing side lugs team up to provide confident footing on-trail or off.
The Oboz Men’s Firebrand II BDry trail shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.
- BFit Deluxe Insole stabilizes arches and protects high-impact zones
- BDry membrane blocks water from the wet trail while wicking away sweat

Real Customer Reviews
- Most comfortable Oboz low hiking shoe
Likes: I've also tried the Oboz Sawtooth low, Bridger Low BDry, and Traverse low, and I find the Firebrand II to be the most comfortable. It has a slightly softer underfoot feel than all the others, and yet is extremely protective underfoot and it has rock solid toe protection
-also love the lacing system on the Firebrand II compared to the Bridger low and Traverse low, the Firebrand's got 7 eyelets per side compared to 5 on the Bridger low and the Traverse low
Dislikes: - heavy for a low hiking shoe - my men's size 12 came in at about 19.5 oz. per shoe
- Excellent shoe
Likes: Comfortable right out of the box, nice snug fit, looks good.
- Awesome hiking boots
Likes: Good fit, better built than my Merrell's
- Dialed-in comfort and superior foot protection
Likes: This shoe has it all: Dialed-in comfort and superior foot protection. This shoe has the best heel-to-toe comfort and fit of any shoe I have owned. The waterproofing is excellent and the toe guard is great...I have put both to the test. The outsole bites into the trail and there are no slippage points and no blisters. Oboz Firebrand II is my go-to outdoor shoe.
- Great looking shoe
Likes: Very comfortable and looks stylish enough for me to wear them in the office all day.
Dislikes: I don't have any dislikes at this time, will be hiking the Catskills this coming weekend, so they will be put to the test.
- My Favorite hiking shoes.
Likes: These shoes are extremely comfortable, light weight, grippy, and look good. No break in period at all and they're so comfortable! I would definitely suggest these 100% if you want a really good hiking shoe.
- Great Shoe!!
Likes: The shoe is very comfortable even on rocky terrain carrying a 30lb load. I was able to hike all day without any blisters or muscle fatigue.
Dislikes: They came untied a couple of times on the second day of an overnight, this was probably my fault though.
- So far so good! The real review is after a few hiking trips.
Likes: Seem to be built well and are comfortable!
Dislikes: None so far.

Likes: 1- Roomy Toe Box
2- Awesome frontal Toe protection
3- Deep Lugs for tougher trails provides durability
4- Good Insert provides cushioning and assures fit
5- Waterproof and does not get too hot on the trail
6- Oboz service Techs are very customer responsive and knowledgeable
Dislikes: Only that the shoes are somewhat heavy...a price to pay for the built in durability, safety, Waterproofing, and ruggedness of the shoes.
