The mighty Ousel Falls in Montana are a sight to be seen.
50 feet of tumbling water in beautiful surroundings. So, what better to name a range of smart and sturdy hiking boots after, than this wonderful part of the world.
And that’s exactly what the Oboz Footwear specialists have done. The Ousel is designed for the woman looking for light, approachable and functional footwear.
Using a gender-specific fit methodology which addresses the anatomical nuances between different types of feet, there are four different types of boots to suit your outdoor needs.
The Ousel Mid and Low have a form hugging heel cup, sculpted mid-foot and a generous forefoot and toe box to accommodate those who have a wider, higher arch foot.
The Ousel’s are also made with abrasion-resistant, breathable mesh, a coated leather toe and heel cap, Buttersoft LWG-gold-certified nubuck leather, and sport a B-DRY Waterproof membrane to keep feet protected no matter what the underfoot conditions are.
They offer all day comfort and look as good on the trail as they do on the street, with bigger boots which are insulated and waterproof to boot type and low cut trainers for the more casual look.
Retailing from £100 to £150, the footwear comes in trendy colour from Yukon to Port and a range of sizes.
Oboz was founded in 2007 in Montana by John Connelly, a footwear industry veteran, determined to breathe new life into the old style image.
As well as designing good quality boots, John was determined to help protect the planet, and now a tree is planted for every pair of shoes sold, with the company having offset carbon since before it was popular to do so.
Oboz is committed to improve and measure its footprint as the company grows and matures and live up to its pledge to take one step at a time.
