John Connely, the co-founder of the OBOZ company, opened his first shop in his hometown, in Virginia in 1971. However, 30 years later he had to move to Bozeman. It’s a small town in southern Montana, in the Rocky Mountains. This relocation has changed his life.
The name of the brand came from two words “Outside” and “Bozeman”. John was keen on hiking, angling, and climbing. So, his aim was to design the footwear that he himself would want to wear. And the first pair of Oboz hiking boots were sold in 2008.
The brand has conquered European and Asian markets within the last 10 years. Nowadays, you can buy Oboz shoes in more than 1500 stores around the world.
What’s more, Oboz takes care of our planet. The company plants a tree for every pair of shoes which was bought. So, keep in mind that by buying Oboz hiking shoes you do not only get the most comfortable footwear but also support the green practices.
The company has several main footwear collections:
Hiking. Oboz hiking boots are usually made of waterproof nubuck or leather. So, your feet will be dry even on rainy days. The rubber outsole is abrasion-resistant. Such models are suitable for hiking enthusiasts. Oboz womens boots are usually designed in the low-cut version.
Backpacking. Such models are made of genuine leather with a water-resistant upper, metal eyelet tabs, and a rubber toe-cap. This footwear is designed for heavy loads and the hardest conditions. They are very durable and ideal for on or off-trail expeditions.
Casual. Oboz makes not only sports footwear but also shoes for everyday life. Casual shoes are so stylish, that they stand out from other footwear on city streets. This style is suitable for those who do not want hiking boots but want to have a comfortable pair of shoes which supports the ankles.
Insulated. These Oboz winter boots are ready for any winter trip. They have a waterproof liner that keeps your feet dry. The high-cut will prevent snow and moisture from getting inside the boots. This will be the warmest pair of boots that you ever had.
