Obōz new women’s Sapphire Mid B-Dry – A beauty on the inside and out.

Designed to take you from Mountain to Main Street in style, and inspired by the active mountain lifestyle of the brand’s hometown of Bozeman, Montana, the new Obōz Women’s Sapphire Mid B-Dry is about the freedom to go wherever the day takes you.

The Sapphire uses the Obōz women’s-specific last design that has been created specifically for, and tested by, women to give an improved sculpted fit creating incredible comfort and performance. This is combined with an asymmetrical collar height and tongue that are designed to comfortably articulate with the female ankle motion, accommodating for the unique ankle bone locations that are often unaccounted for in women’s footwear design.

This superior articulation allows uninhibited forward motion, while supporting the ankle laterally so you can hit off-camber trails or crooked cobblestone streets with equal confidence and lasting comfort.

The outer is made with high quality Nubuck leather and fabric, breathable mesh panels and the B DRY waterproof membrane with a durable water repellent finish, meaning the Sapphire is able to cope with anything the trail throws at it.

At the heart of Obōz® is the O FIT Insole™. Drawing inspiration from collective decades of industry experience and countless miles logged on favourite trails, this insole is moulded to match the specific shape and construction of every shoe, delivering an unmatched fit, feel and performance.

The O FIT Insole™ places the feet in a neutral position with a supportive arch and a deep cushioning heel cup, with extra protection around high-strike zones along the metatarsal and heel.

In the words of founder John Connelly “one great feature does not a great shoe make” which is why the superior Insole is built into the O FIT System™, working seamlessly with the midsole, outsole and upper to promote the foot’s natural bio-mechanics, giving a better fit and performance.

With the Sapphire, the insole is paired with a women’s specific Swiftcurrent outsole and midsole that together provide incredible durability, stability and comfort.

Obōz began 10 years ago in the world famous outdoor hub that is Bozeman, Montana. Surrounded by 18 million acres of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the company is inspired by the breath-taking landscape of peaks, valleys and rivers to not only get out and enjoy them, but to create the perfect shoe to do so.
