The Oboz Women's Beartooth Boot is a backpacking boot that is durable for the trail and comfortable on the feet. The Beartooth is burly and strong, built with waterproof nubuck leather and highly abrasion resistant textile so you can tear your way along the trail. The Oboz BDry waterproof/breathable membrane keeps your toes in a happy place, providing protection from wet weather. When you're spending upwards of 2 weeks on the trail, you have to be prepared for the unexpected and stay comfortable. The glove leather lined heel is soft and cushy and the BFit lacing system pulls your heel into the boot without squashing your instep. Boots stay on and your feet don't hurt! The Wind River outsole is super gnarly with 5.5mm directional lugs and tough rubber that resists wear and tear so you can log mile after mile of trail. I bet you could run pretty fast in the even of a bear encounter. Or are you supposed to just look big and talk a lot?
