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.

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.
