Anniversary edition of the Oboz Sawtooth provides impressive new touches on a hiking boot staple

With so many choices in the market, choosing the right hiking boot can be difficult. But the consideration everyone looks for first is comfort.

Ten years ago, Oboz — based in Bozeman, Mont. — created its first version of the Sawtooth, which put the small company on the map with outdoor enthusiasts. This year it introduced the Sawtooth X to celebrate the anniversary and update the staple with some impressive new touches. The boot has been successful because it works. It features a proprietary insole from Oboz that’s molded to match the shape and construction of the shoe and provide excellent performance and feel. The midsole is made with a rubberized EVA designed to adapt to the terrain and provide a soft landing for heel strikers. The outer sole is slip-resistant and durable, while the upper is constructed with Cordura fabric to protect your feet from trail debris. Choose from low- or high-ankle support and waterproof or non-waterproof construction, depending on the type of hiking you’ll be doing.

No matter which model you choose, you’ll get a comfortable ride to help you tackle the toughest trail.

Price: $125-$165,
