A women’s specific fit meets fashionable versatility in the Oboz Women’s Sapphire Mid B-Dry hiking boot. The shoe has mountain-ready features and durable and waterproof nubuck leather construction, but also has the aesthetics for everyday wear.
While the nubuck full-leather upper delivers the support and stability you’d expect, a glove leather-lined collar makes the boot more supple than many of its competitors, and also allows it to break in much more quickly than traditional all-leather boots. Oboz’s B-Dry membrane provides waterproof protection while still helping to breathe and wick sweat to keep feet cool and dry. Fabric and metal hardware combine to give the Sapphire Mid B-Dry’s lacing system excellent durability and fit adjustability, and a wide toe box gives your foot some room where it’s most likely to need it as you put miles behind you on the trail or in town. The women’s specific last, which was tirelessly tested by actual women, lends a sculpted fit for incredible comfort.
Under foot, Oboz’s specifically designed midsole features dual density EVA for balanced cushioning, a TPU chassis for stability and a 1mm EVA "Super Skin" plate in the forefoot to mitigate overflexion. The high-performance O FIT 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 that strives to place the foot in a healthy neutral position.
The boot's Swiftcurrent outsole provides reliable traction on a wide variety of surfaces on or off the trail. A map of Swiftcurrent Mountain located in Glacier National Park is molded into the bottom of the outsole.
Sold in pairs, the Oboz Women’s Sapphire Mid B-Dry boot is available in women’s full and half sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- Comfy and lightweight hiker
Likes: Fits my somewhat narrow foot very well, and doesn't need much breaking in. Planning on these to summit Mount St. Helens next week, and should be good to go.
Dislikes: None so far.
- Great shoe
Likes: Felt very comfortable from the first time I put them on. Last shoes I bought I got blisters but had none with these shoes after hiking 7 miles the first time I wore them.
- Best hiking boot ever!
Likes: Love the wide toe box. Love the stability. Love that my feet stay dry. And it’s not that they run small, I merely ordered the same size as my running shoe and not my regular shoes. The fit is perfect. The color is AMAZING. Can’t wait to try them out in the mountains!
Dislikes: All good here. No complaints, hot spots, or circulation issues.
