Oboz Crest Low BDry – Final Report

 

After three days on soggy, water logged trails.

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 Crest Low BDry shoes. 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.

Update – Oboz Crest Low BDry Hiking Shoe

A soggy hike in the Crest Low BDry shoes.

I’ve had the Crest Low BDry shoes for about a month now. They’ve been through about 50 miles so far and have been tested in soggy, wet conditions and even some technical terrain. See the rest of my update here.

The Oboz Crest Low Shoe is a waterproof, low-top hiking shoe. Designed for long miles on the trail, the shoe could be described as hybrid between a hiking boot and trail running shoe. Click here to see my initial review of the Crest Low Shoe.

The Oboz Scapegoat Mid hiking boots come in the color Charcoal. Sizes available are 8-12 in half sizes, and 13, 14. The shoe is mid cut or just above ankle high. There is added material at the toe for protection. The heel is rounded which I believe helps my stability on the trail. At the heel is a large loop to aid in putting the shoes on. The loop is large enough for me to insert my index finger and I think I will find this very useful. All the lacing loops are closed except for the top pair which is open. The lower five pair of loops are flush with the surface and the top loop is raised.  To read more please click here.
