I really like the Oboz Pika Shoes! They are comfortable, lightweight, have good traction, and are stylish.
Oboz provided the Scapegoat Mid hiking boots for review purposes.
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.
It is the end of the line for the Oboz Contours here in Texas. After three months I cannot say that I have sworn off boots forever, but the Contours sure put a dent in my faith in boots. The last three months have been a learning experience and you can find out just how much I learned here …..
