This report is several days late. I could not get my gout swollen foot to fit into my boots. The weather has been unpredictable for this time of the year, going from hot and humid to hot and dry, then the next day the temperature drops to 50 F and rain. I was in Harold Parker for three of the Wednesday group hikes. I used the Oboz boots while I planted my garden.

A 24 mile hike in the Nantahala Wilderness at the headwaters of the Nantahala River in the Blue Ridge Mountains provided the “perfect” final test for the Oboz Crest Low BDry hiking shoes.
After three days on soggy, water logged trails.
I wouldn’t call the conditions perfect for backpacking, but for testing a pair of waterproof shoes made for through hikes, it couldn’t have been any better. Click here and scroll to the bottom to read my final update from this trip and draw some conclusions about the shoes.
