Product DetailsOboz Sphinx Mid BDRY Walking ShoesThe Sphinx emerges like a ship's prow from waves of peaks. At 10,800 feet its summit block is no skyscraper, but don't let that fool you - The Sphinx is an all day commitment of lung-burning goat paths and gully scrambles. Fifteen miles, unpredictable weather, 4,500 feet of elevation gain, and a deceptively long completion time make it one of Oboz's staff favourite shake-down hikes for evaluating a new product. All-day comfort, stability, and breathability in the Sphinx Mid? Check! Awe inspiring views? Double check!BDry Waterproof UpperThe upper of the Oboz Sphinx Mid BDry Walking Shoes is constructed with a waterproof nubuck leather and a highly abrasion resistant textile which provides ultimate durability and support to the feet. As=lso equipped with Oboz's BDry which keeps the feet dry through creeks, mud, rain and sweat, thanks to three key components. The crux is Oboz's proprietary tape-sealed polyurethane film bootie, which waterproofs shoes but still lets sweat escape. Secondly, all of the BDry shoes come with hydrophobic upper materials, meaning the rest of the shoe won't absorb water and finally, the textile lining inside bDry boots wicks sweat away, so feet stay dry from the inside out. Lastly, the upper has a moulded rubber toe cap construction which helps protect the feet against rocks and loose debris on rough terrain. TPU Chassis MidsoleEvery pair of Oboz comes outfitted with a supportive, quality insole - on par with premium aftermarket insoles, but engineered just for Oboz shoes. Without proper support, feet tend to pronate and elongate with every step - fine if you're barefoot, but not so good inside shoes, where friction can create blisters. With support from Oboz's biomechanically engineered insole, though, feet stay neutral for every step. This means less friction inside the shoe, and a better fit all around. Equipped with BFit Deluxe which is Oboz's anatomically designed insole which maximises stability and support in their backpacking boots, hikers and lifestyle shoes, with a supportive arch and a deep cushioning heel cup. Triple-density EVA throughout provides both cushioning and durability, and a shot of urethane under the metatarsals and heels add extra protection to high strike zones. The midsole also features a nylon shank which is extremely supportive, lightweight and flexible so you'll be able to move more easily with these in place. They give just enough bend to create a more natural movement in your feet, and there's plenty of support to help ease some stress in your arches. Additionally, fitted with a TPU Chassis which is slim but powerful and protects the feet from stone bruising and sharp rocks while enhancing torsional stability underfoot. Since the chassis adds such substantial protection, Oboz can strategically drop rubber from the outsole underneath - making for lightweight shoes with heavyweight benefits. Granite Peak OutsoleThe quintessential hiking outsole which features a nylon shank for stability, toothy side lugs that hug off-camber trails, and 4mm directional lugs studding the sole. A lightweight TPU chassis boosts stability and prevents stone bruising without inhibiting flex.FeaturesWaterproof Nubuck Leather and Highly Abrasion Resistant Textile - Provides durability and support.
