For Fall/Winter 2017, Oboz is expanding both its insulated footwear line up as well as its best-selling Bridger collection with three new styles for outdoor activities in wintry weather and conditions. The new styles feature honed fit, 3M™ Thinsulate insulation, and matching, supportive plaid wool-topped BFit Thermal insoles. Oboz’ full line of outdoor ‘True to the Trail” footwear can be seen at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market from January 10-12, 2017 in Booth 403 in the Ballroom.
Details on the new insulated styles are:
Women’s Bridger 9” Insulated B-DRY (shown)
Oboz’ new Women’s Bridger 9” Insulated B-DRY boots are cozy for hanging outside when it’s cold. The waterproof BDry lining and 400 grams 3M™ Thinsulate™ will help feet stay warm and dry for late-night bonfires, winter photography and après ski activities. Quilted heathered wool and shearling collar add texture and style to the nubuck leather. Inside, Oboz’s BFit Thermal insole supports the foot’s arches and is topped with a complementary wool plaid. Underfoot, winter-specific rubber and deep lugs dial in winter traction. Tall 9” height, protective rubber toe and heel caps and D-ring gaiter attachment help fend off ice and deep snow.

Men’s Bridger 10” Insulated B-DRY
The Bridger 10” Insulated B-DRY prioritizes support and warmth for long cold winter days watching birds, shooting photos or building snow forts. Oboz’ B-DRY waterproof lining and 400 grams of 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation keep feet toasty and dry. Inside, the supportive BFIT Thermal insole is wool-topped to help retain heat. Critical features are winterized rubber with deep lugs for traction on ice and snow, durable rubber toe and heel caps, D-ring for hooking on gaiters, and a molded heel kick to help nudge off boots at the end of the day.
Men’s Big Sky Low Insulated B-DRY
Here’s a practical solution for everyday winter footwear—Oboz’ easy-on, easy-off men’s Big Sky Low. Its 100 grams of 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation wards off the chill outside for dog walks or errands but isn’t too warm to wear inside. Waterproof oiled top-grain leather is tough, handsome and ages well, and rubber heel and toe caps resist wear and tear. Surefooted winter traction comes with Oboz’ Granite Peak outsole. Inside, colorful plaid wool tops off Oboz’ B-FIT Thermal insole, which is engineered to comfortably support the foot all day.
