The Oboz Yellowstone is no longer in production, but you can head over to our Women's Hiking Boot Review to see which boots we're currently digging!
The Oboz Yellowstone is a narrowly fitting, waterproof, light hiking shoe. It has a slightly higher profile on the ankle than most other shoes, adding a bit of support and stability for uneven terrain or for carrying heavy loads. It stands out as having the bounciest cushion of all the shoes tested, but is also the heaviest shoe, weighing in at 2.24 lbs per pair. We prefer the lighter Salomon XA Pro 3D GTX - Women's or the similarly mid-cut Adidas Terrex Fast X - Women's. If you don't like the narrow toe-box, try either the Keen Voyageur - Women's or the Merrell Moab Ventilator - Women's, which are both more spacious, particularly in the toe.
