All right hi everyone today i've got a pair of oboes hiking boots and open up and we'll take a look and see what we got these are the oboz men's bridger be dry. In the scotch brown color you can see. That that's the label on the box there and let's get these open and have a look. See what we've got in the box here all. Right yeah these are yeah i do like the. Color of these get a little close-up. Look here this is the scotch brown color. With the red laces obviously comes in a. Variety colors but these are the ones i like these have a nice heel cup rubber. Heel cup they have their be dry. Waterproofing membrane throughout the boot so does a waterproof boot with a nubuck leather outer fabric whatever you. Call it yeah alright so looking good. Let's see what got hit else here in the box so i can extra pair of laces these. Are brown didn't expect that so that's kind of nice looks like that's it. Alright set that off the side here's the. Other one you can see it's just the same everything's all laced up nice and new oh smells great alright so here's the Sole.
I don't think i showed the sole yet but you can see it's got a nice aggressive tread pattern with some deep. Lugs and i like the red eye red. Highlights here pretty cool but these. Are the oboz bridge or mid air. Waterproof one nice thing about them is the toe it's a little bit reinforced. Here with this rubber rubber piece here it's not really stiff but it does give. It some extra protection if your toe boots if you're kicking rocks and roots and stuff like that on the trail that's. Nice i happen to like that not all i can. Boots have that all right just unlace. This a little bit it'll look kind of inside, a little bit here and show you something else.
That's kind of nice that oboes does and most other boot manufacturers do not do so you can see. He's got this piece here what is fully waterproof and we'll just look inside here that kind of a gray pattern here on. The tongue yeah. Pretty dark can't really see too well but the one thing i did kind of want to point out is the insole that oboes does. A little extra on their insole insert. It's a lot better than most manufacturers.
I turn it over you can see. A little bit of a kind of a shock pad here on the forefoot and the heel and. That's kind of impact point to your foot and it's a lot stiffer it's a better it's a better insole with some good arch. Support most hiking boots just come with. A very very flimsy insert this one has. Some structure to it and will provide some support it's one of the things that. Oboes does that nobody else really does would it be it just comes stock included. And then inside you know just a quick. Look there's nothing too interesting but. Anyways that's the insole it slides in. And out real quick if you're trying on. Boots in the store pull the insole out.
You'll see that most other manufacturers are very flimsy they really had no structure and provide as much support as the oboist does so there you go it's a. Beautiful looking boots extra pair of laces and looking forward to get out on. The trail these would be good yeah hiking backpacking even just general. Mini yard work if you're a landscaper may you work on a golf course or something these would be a pretty good work boot we spend a lot of time outdoors but definitely good for hiking and. And keep my try outside alright thanks. For watching today i hope this video was helpful please do like the video and. Subscribe to the youtube channel and hope to see here again and hope you.

Amazon shoppers team here today and I wanted to go over. My review on the target two boots from keene these are. The mid tattoos and guys let me give you just a quick background on my experience. In boots my quest for the perfect boot. For me three years at the post office. Been I've spent a ton of money trying to. Find the perfect boot that's durable and last and in the right price range guys.
Now I went through several boots in this adventure and definitely landed on one that I absolutely love now guys. I've tried them all Solomon's timberlands, I'm not going to drop all the names but there's a lot of boots that I tried and I kept. I even started my first start at the post office. I was buying some cheaper boots. They were lasted me like a month nothing.
Two, maybe two guys I walk ten to twelve miles a day six days a week that's a lot of walking yes that's more than the average person and now that's through yards on streets concrete up and. Down hills steps all day long it's it. Takes a toll on you if you don't have a good pair of boots it really takes a toll on your body so i was I'm like i. Took some advice and from fellow co-workers and bought some of the more expensive salomon boots had trouble with them right out of the box my reviews they're on amazon if you want to check that out one hundred and seventy-nine dollar boots, and they cracked right here within three weeks they sent me another pair and they cracked right there within three weeks same boot.
I wasn't impressed with that for the price. They were comfortable and a good-looking boot but i can't have a hundred seventy dollar boots cracking within just a few weeks and there's other people having issues with that boot as well so just moving on i finally landed on these keens i picked. These one day the target is on amazon there and i got him in, and they look. Like they were going to be a heavy boot but guys really they're not they're. They're no more heavy than the salomon boots they just look like they're heavier and I'm gonna tell you why these things are built tough man these things are tanks I love them absolutely love.
I'm going to show you something real quick let us try to kind of sink in just. A little bit for you guys seven months ten to twelve miles a day six days a. Week that boot right there. Now I've walked the heel off these boots right here as you can see now that's just how i walk that's a bad habit of. Mine but that's where they wear right there no splitting between the leather and the. Sole no splitting right here on this material where the toe bends no. Splitting there whatsoever the typical. Problems that you generally have with boots i didn't with these pins i have. Replaced the insoles about four times. I think since i got these boots and seven months so I tell you the amount of walking and I do smash the footbed pretty bad.
I'm 205 pounds six foot tall and doing that that amount of walking in a boots you know the. Insoles need to be replaced about four. Times i think in this pair of boots that's the most I've ever replaced in a pair of boots usually it's the second time in those boots or trash there's something wrong with them one thing i want to touch on real quick is the water. Proofing that says again king dry system. In it and i love it but it's a wording. Think with me I'm not a big fan of it when somebody says that their boot is waterproof guys it's not waterproof its. Water resistant okay they're the only. Way to make this boot waterproof is to completely surround it and rubber that's it that's waterproof water resistant is. A better word and this boot actually. Does an amazing job of it that water resistance without having to use any can't dry or anything like that lasted about four months in these boots and that was through the fall in the winter so a lot of rain and a lot of snow that I packed.
I walked with these boots in and my feet stayed dry all day now i did. You know common sense don't walk in. Water with them try to i mean if you're walking through wet grass and you step in a puddle occasionally a little bit of. Water but when you start walking in water and it starts getting up into here your feet are going to get wet guys that's water resistance. So i just i just kind of wanted to touch on that a little bit like i said its kind of wording issue with me the. Way they toss that word around so easily. But you can see like on this pair of boots the shoe strings just in the last couple of months they busted here and i had the time together they busted up here and i tied them together but everything is still amazing about this boot.
All the little eyelets are still attached all the stitching is still good there's no busted stitching there's. Nothing there's no leather coming away from the insole the toes not peeling off the bottom is not cracked i get a lot of. Boots that crack right here just an. Amazing boot i these boots blow my mind ordered my. Second pair just last month and today i felt like i needed to get on there and share that information with you guys absolutely love the boots i will continue to buy this boot as long as. They keep making it comfortable right out of the box absolutely just broken. Right out of the box i love that about these as well they're not super heavy the water resistance works great and the boots. Just last I really liked them so i just. Want to show you on video what they look like after that now that to the normal person just wearing these boots that's probably three years worth of wear and. Tear right there so for the price.
Guys if you can get three years out of them not hiking just wearing them around little hiking weekend warrior guys hey man well worth the money right there so. I just want to touch on a man with you guys absolutely love them I'll keep by him as long as they keep making them, and they don't change anything about the boot the price is right the price is. Actually low for what these boots are. How long these boots last and how well they're made so 5 stars for me on them. Guys if you have any questions or comments on these boots just leaving the comment box down below and I'll try to help you the best that i can but until the next review as always be safe and happy shopping you.

I've always been a firm believer in a. Good pair of shoes what you put on your feet is really important protecting those feet because those feet are what. Give you mobility now is it our local rei here in town and i was looking back at their shoes looking for really high quality and i found these are the. Salomon quest 4d gtx boots and i was. Looking at them and you know they're not very inexpensive in fact they run about 220 and i thought you know what i really. Need to invest in something for my feet sound it going gear talking to marshall about it because he's the one that really he really knows a lot about gear, and he told me that the Solomon are the. Best boot in the world and he said the mavy seals when they went in to a get. Bin laden. They were wearing these salomon quest 4d gtx boots and that sold me.
Salomon has been a maker of ski boots. For a long time and that's where they built their company, but they have over the past few years been putting out some really high-quality running shoes running boots hiking boots and this is. Actually considered a backpackers boot this is not something that you want to wear all the time very casually because it has a super supportive ankle your. Ankle is very vulnerable and so this really keeps your ankle protected in a. Harsh environment with a lot of debris rocks roots all kind of different things.
This will keep your ankle in super shape. Now really i like the fact that these are made from let they have leather, but they also have nylon material, and they're gore-tex so it's just a triple. Protection with your feet the nut the. Leather is really going to be a good lasting boot it's going to protect you the nylon is going to help as well keep it breathable and the gore-tex keeps the. Water out the surface itself is just. Impervious to water and will really protect your feet it's going to protect. The toes of your feet and then back here. You're going to have protection to your heel and when you're out on the trail which i love to hike and you know you. Really need something that's going to keep your feet not only protected but also drive it has incredible padding all the way around the ankle here and with the tongue itself reinforced in different areas here with the leather and the stitching everything is crossed so it really gives you a lot of support.
Of course, then you can also you have your pull here lacing system is excellent. Really pulls in tight then we have metal. Hardware here to where this actually locks your boot in so it's not going to. Come loose even if it comes loose at the top this will retain the tension on your. Foot in fact you really have to pull. This up to get it to unloosen very. Aggressive tread and you're able to get. Onto rocks without slipping of course their contours all around it you can see. That I've been using these, and they have held up extremely well this is actually. Called the contra grip just a really. State-of-the-art gripping system for your feet the tongue is gusseted and. That's going to keep all the debris out if you get debris down into your laces.
There's nothing worse than it get around and down into this area of course again it is padded all the way here's a leather upper right here very nice nylon here now it has these. Porthole foam inserts and these keep. Your feet really cool and dry and really. That means it's going to be healthy you know if you've been on the trail at any time you know that you can get really sweaty feet and that also holds a lot of. Odors they are removable which makes it. Really nice that it actually has a. Cushioning you can actually push in and has a nice cushioning effect which will. Keep your feet very comfortable it has. An antimicrobial treatment that will deter odors too and a lot of times my. Feet do fine in most shoes but if i put. On a strong tight boot like this man I'll tell you what it can really get bad and so that's one reason why i love this boot as well and this will keep the odors down.
These boots are really lightweight for what they are for the quality and the ruggedness of them there are 3 pounds 1 ounce, but they still give. You the stability with your feet one thing — i want a highly recommend or a really high-quality pair of wool socks and. These are from cane these are excellent in fact they even have right in left foot which you know this really keeps the water whipped away from your feet these are really not to be worn every day these are to be made for. Hiking backpacking and just in a real. Stressful situation having a couple of pairs of these tucked back to wear at that time is a good investment you put your right foot in.
One thing I want to show you too as far as with any boot this applies to is once you get up here. Before you go into your locking places bring this up and twist your shoelaces together just twist them around and this. Will keep them very stable then bring it. Behind those locking hooks and then. Bring him here. Of course the laces themselves are friction they really hold tight when you pull. Now there's a lot of support right in. Here and that keeps your ankle from bending too much there's not a lot. Of flexibility here but what that does is it super protects your feet i took a. Lot of dips in the water it just the water just wicks off i did get a little. On one of my socks but even that because it's wool. It keeps it off of my skin so. Extremely comfortable system and will protect those ankles especially if they're like mine. They're made of glass and you twist that ankle in the woods and you're going to have a time getting back.
One of the things about this boot is well is that it's pretty much broken in it doesn't take long to get this boot just out of the box and on your feet a lot of boots take a lot of working in but these are very comfortable right out. Of the box i want to thank marshall dan it go. Gear for the recommendation and providing these boots for this review and I am going to be down at going gear in Smyrna Georgia tomorrow which is saturday and from 12:00 to 5:00. So if you're into georgia atlanta area come by and see me.

Impressed with the boot but let me take a minute to show you what the wear looks like after a year of hard use so let's. Start at the top here and just for a. Comparison put these together the first. Think that I've noticed that goes on the boot is this year that front toe. Guard the rubber it always like I've had. Two of these boots for the last two. Years and that's the first thing that. Goes is that just peels off and it. Happens pretty soon am i in my experience both pairs of boots i had this occurred pretty quickly but it. Doesn't really do anything to the function of the boot as you can see this the tips still there this area is compared to the. New one pretty good condition so after. Year let's look at side by sides here so. One thing that's happening finally after. Year is stitching starting to come. Our right there versus you can see how. This was fine and we'll look at that. Tread there the new one versus mine. That's seen a lot of use so this new. Pair gin used them once on a 13 mile. Hike we just did and no break-in. Required no blisters pretty good terrain. And coming down 1500 feet off the face. Of red mountain there and no foot. Problems so you really don't need a. Break-in period these boots i mean they're good to go right out the box at least in our experience let me show. You what the tread looks like after a. Year of hard use alright let's look at. The new one here and used once. And nope i did not clean the boots as. You can see because who's got time for that ah the treads good i like the tread on. Then they're meaty man now let's have a. Look directly at my pair that have just. Been worked hard still some tread left. Not really as aggressive after a good. Year you start to see this heel though it's pretty much kicked its yeah feet. Chunks coming out of that and if we go to a side view here let's look over you. Can see after one good day of usage on. This one on the side not too much now. Let's go over to mine after a year yeah. Sure a baby let's see that check that. Out compared to the new. And like i need to reiterate i have used. The hell out of these boots and now. Finally, let's look at the back there. Alright here's looking at back it's new. Been used once you can see and let's go. Over to the boot that is a year old. Heavily used all the stitching's still. Intact back here at heel though wow that. Heels that heel is toast man don't got. Much left in that one right here's here's looking at the new one the right. Side of the boot that's new and then. Down to the year old heavily used boot. All the stitching for the most part is. Still, intact this is pretty good on this. Boot on the other boot the stitching was. Finally, starting to come out on this that's impressive now let's look at that side tread new. Boot. And then back over to the heavily used. Food ooh. Shredded these are the original laces. They didn't pop i tend to get me. Personally a little over a year of hard. Usage out of the boot before as you can. See the thing that fails the most is the. Soles the tread just comes apart. So that's my big problem with the boot. You can see both boots the heels have. Just eaten it and maybe that's my. Walking that's doing that but the front. End toe cap still in good. Condition i mean it'll shoot up on the edges but like i said in the beginning of the video that's the first thing that generally starts peeling off is that toe cap but actually you can see it's still. I mean it's still there and then you can. See that tread again coming back to the chewed up heel which just start to peel. It off nice so are the boots worth the. 230 dollar price tag you know that's. That's just gonna be half it's gonna have to be up to you i guess to me i think they are they definitely. Worked well for me the ankle support is fantastic I've used the boot carrying lots of weight and i mean I've really. Used them this is not a boot that i used. You know every couple months it was in. Every outing i was wearing these so i mean and another factor may be. That the terrain I'm in I'm not in and you know like nicely padded trails and. Forests I'm off-trail a lot of sharp jagged rock. Which is slicing those the tread. The soles up to pieces i could have a lot to do with it too so i suppose it all depends on where you're using the boot as well i don't think they would be. Good for well actually you know i recently did a hike and you can watch. The video of half the hike six miles or. So it was in snow the other half was in. Mud and water for the most part and my feet were dry for the most part me gonna. Sweat right not cold so good boots there. You have it folks brand-new one-year-old salomon quest 4d. Gtx. Shoot up heels new heels take one last. Look at that tread huh on the new boots. Pretty meaty and your old boots still. Got some traction on them not so much on. The sides and the heels of course chewed. Up so for the most part everything else. On the boot has held up well all the. Eyelets and everything none of these popped out or broke off the original. Lacing i didn't lose pop a lace that's. Pretty cool tongue didn't shred or anything so other. Then the heel part and the sides of the. The tread or the soul there. Everything's held up remarkably well. All right folks thank you very much for.

- Injected EVA midsole for lightweight cushioning and response;

- Item #SAL016J.
These are the Women's x Ultra Mid 3 Cortex hiking boots by Salomon. They strike the balance for me between a heavy bulky back packing boot and a lightweight hiker. They offer the support I need while shouldering a heavy pack, but they're lightweight and flexible so my feet stay comfortable.
Their one boot that does it all so general outdoor enthusiasts will love these boots because they'll support your feet on that five-day backpacking trip, but they'll be just as comfortable for day hikes. They are an ideal option for fast packers too who want a responsive boot that won't slow them down starting from the ground up.
The Kanto grip rubber outsole has aggressive lugs to dig into uneven terrain. Salomon puts a lot of design into their midsoles, and they refer to the structure of the boot as a chassis just like a car on these boots. You get Solomon's advanced chassis which means that they're built low to the ground for maximum stability.
The EVA Foam cushions each step while a lightweight molded shank gives the stability your feet need for long days of hiking. This minimizes over pronation — which affects not only your feet but your knees, hip, and your back. On top of all of that you have a cushy or THO light sock liner which can be removed for your own insoles.
The upper is completely waterproof with the gore-tex performance. Comfort membrane gore-tex material. Breathes by letting warm air escape but. It can't do its job of ventilating if there are stuffy materials sewn on top. Of it so salomon is using highly breathable textile materials so your. Feet can breathe in the higher wear areas. They put more durable materials so these will last a long time. The toe cap upfront protects from kicked rocks and the rigid heel counter and the back supports your heels on uneven terrain.
I wear a size 8 and a half in almost every boot and these fit perfectly with a pair of lightweight hiking socks. I love that Solomon builds these on a women's specific last for the best fit possible. I found plenty of room from my toes. Display in the front with a snug fit throughout to prevent hot spots they are lightweight supportive and waterproof. Lace them up for your next adventure they are the women's extra mid 3. Gore-tex hiking boots by salomon.

I can wear them all day and when I get home I don't feel like I need to rip them off which is really saying something about comfort and breath ability as far as scrambling and them goes.
They don't have a really defined point here for edging, but they. Still do a pretty darn good job the vibra mivec sole is sticky and even an unexpected snow they did a pretty good. Job the shoe is not waterproof but like i said its kind of trade-off for how breathable they are these have become one of my favorite shoes the string and i said i definitely recommend checking them out thanks for watching its whitney with outdoor gear tv get your gear and get outside.

In the lugs here and then a drogue rip from v broom which is their stickiest multiple compound for really good wet rock traction the mid sole is more athletic though it's built like an athletic shoe it's very comfortable on the foot so it's its a blend between. Athletic performance and technical hiking this is a bba base very. Actually very lightweight evi and it has a what we call an instep shank so right in the middle we have a little piece of tpu that gives it a some rigidity and then the middle of the shoe follow the theme of athletic footwear we definitely want to have large breathable mesh in the shoe so it's more athletically inclined it has a lot of protection elements because it is meant for more performance hiking where you're scrambling you could be in talus fields. Things like that, so we use a polyurethane mold over the top of our mesh so it's basically like it's armored so very durable molded rubber toe. Cap on the front and a lace to toe system so you can really dial in your fit we use what we call it equalizer last on this the last of the form that we build this shoe around it's definitely more technically inclined last if it's nice and snug to the foot but not inhibiting it's a it's quite a comfortable shoe once you what you get it on but it is a performance base so it. Has a little bit more of a curve to it and really helps in situations where you're in tricky hiking situations are scrambling this is a really versatile shoe so i everything from mountain biking in and with flat pedals the sticky rubber really helps great for that it's good for hiking scrambling.

La Sportiva Synthesis Mid GTX Hiking Boot - Men's
The La Sportiva Men's Synthesis Mid GTX Hiking Boot feels surprisingly breathable for a shoe equipped with waterproof protection. That's because Gore-Tex's latest-and-greatest Surround technology allows 360-degree breathability. Compared to previous waterproof, breathable membranes that only cover the shoe's upper, Surround technology wraps a membrane around the upper and sole. You'd think this would decrease the shoe's overall breathability, but La Sportive fused a sole with mesh inserts that enhance the shoe's breathability while still providing a truly waterproof experience.
The Synthesis also features a well-ventilated AirMesh upper with Nano-Cell technology for better support. STB technology unifies the midsole to the upper for a longer lasting performance, and the PU leather toe protects your foot from protruding rocks. Underfoot, the Synthesis uses a cushy compression-molded EVA midsole with cradling TPU inserts that keep your foot prime for miles. A shoe this good deserves the best sole, which is why La Sportiva used Vibram's superlight Nano rubber, and there's also an Impact Brake System for an improved downhill performance.

How to choose hiking shoes?
There are so many little things that have to be considered when thinking about how to choose climbing shoes. Shoes will be your first and foremost concern in your climbing gear selection process. In this article we will try to shed some light on the problem. It is very important to choose the right model, otherwise there is a risk of serious discomfort.
Just as the art of war advises you to always know your opponent, so we advise you to think carefully and determine your climbing goals and priorities. Are you going to practice in the gym? Will bouldering or big-wall be your priority? Do you prefer the speed and spirit of competition, or do you want to conquer the routes without risking too much? From this moment on, we will try to answer in as much detail as possible the frequently asked questions and help you decide. First of all, consider the design features and materials.
The most flexible and good starting point is the versatile climbing shoe. Yes, yes, you heard right - sneakers. The design of these shoes is not focused on any particular climbing style. Perfect for novice climbers or mountaineers. Not a bad choice for easy climbing routes. It will also come in handy when part of the route on the ascent or on the hike passes through the rocks - in this case, you do not need to constantly change into special climbing shoes.
