JUST ARRIVED...THE OBOZ SAWTOOTH X WATERPROOF
Months late but now they've arrived!
The Oboz Sawtooth hiking shoe was introduced in 2011 and in the years since, the brand has only made minor changes to the line. A decade or so later, Oboz has come up with its latest update: the Sawtooth X.
With the addition of new aggressive styling and new materials like their Adaptive Cushioning Technology midsole, Oboz opted to make further refinements, tweaks the brand is calling “evolutionary steps in performance.”
The new major updates are:
ACT Midsole: a proprietary rubberised EVA that adapts to varying terrain. This unique blend of dual-density, lightweight cushioning system provides the wearer a high level of energy efficiency and a softer heel strike landing zone.
Mesh elements are now constructed using high tenacity fiber technologies - weight for weight, CORDURA® AFT fabrics are exceptionally durable
Injected PU pieces in the mesh "windows" on the upper strengthens the junction between the nubuck leather and the mesh and provides more lateral stability
Trail Tread Outsole is made from Oboz’s most-tested rubber compound boasting superior traction, enhanced durability, and improved elongation and tensile strength. It features multidirectional lugs and added teeth for improved acceleration and deceleration, increased lug spacing to shed mud and additional siping for wet surface traction.
Beyond tech, tweaks made to improve the hiking experience including making the toe box slightly wider and shaving the area over the toes, which was done to make the shoes fit like a glove
And from a sustainable standpoint, Oboz have added recycled content in both the laces, the webbing and the shoe lining
And what hasn't changed are the proven B-DRY waterproof and breathable membrane lining and the orthotic O-Fit insole that comes as standard
