While the all-leather upper of the Bridger gives a nod to classic hikers of yore, there’s nothing old-fashioned about these stats: a pliable, extra comfortable collar; a lightweight TPU forefoot plate that preserves the shoe’s integrity; BDry waterproofing; metal hardware and a lightweight, aggressive outsole. Unlike the waffle stompers of our youth, the Bridger’s leather goodness comes with practically no break-in time.

Cleaning Instructions:

  • Mud and dirt can dry out the leather on your footwear, causing them to age prematurely. Rinse, brush or wipe off all dirt and mud after your adventures.
  • Thoroughly clean your footwear a few times a season to extend their life. After removing the visible mud, we recommend Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel. It cleans the breathable surface, and prepares boots for any waterproofing treatment.
  • When cleaning, avoid solvents, petroleum, and detergents. Whatever you do, do not put your shoes in a clothes washer or dryer! This will send your footwear to an early grave and adversely affect fit.

Waterproofing Protection: Clean shoes prior to waterproofing

  • All Oboz footwear has a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish on the outside leathers and textiles, which can benefit from occasional retreating. If the surface of your shoes is absorbing water, it’s time to re-waterproof. Even styles with a B-DRY membrane will benefit from a re-application of DWR. Reviving breathability will reduce sweaty, clammy feet; and eliminate the “false leaking” sensation when excess perspiration can be confused with water coming in from the outside environment.
  • Oboz highly recommends Nikwax for waterproofing. Although Sno-Seal and Mink Oil work perfectly for Norwegian welted boots, they can cause the cemented midsoles on your Oboz to dis-bond. Please note that any treatment can darken or discolor the leather.
  • The Nikwax water-based formula is safe to use and is free of PFC’s, Phosphates, or Hydrocarbons.
  • For nubuck or suede textured leather footwear, use Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof.
  • For fabric, or fabric and leather combination footwear, use Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof.
  • Clean and treat your footwear at least once a season if worn weekly. If worn daily, or in particularly harsh environments treat more frequently.

Drying Shoes: Gradually!

  • Excessive heat is one of the most damaging elements for your footwear. It can dis-bond the midsole and outsole, warp internal toe & heel counters, shrink materials, and dry out leather. It's tempting to set boots by the fire or bust out a hair dryer when the priority is dry boots for the next day; just know that doing so adversely affects longevity and fit.
  • Dry your footwear at room temperature (60-70°F) away from direct sunlight and heat sources (heat registers, campfires, etc.). Stuffing your boots with newspaper can draw out a significant amount of moisture without nasty side-effects. Remember to pull out the O Fit Insoles™ after a day of hiking or running (even in dry climates). It will help your Oboz dry faster and will cut down on odor.
  • Finally, don't forget your Oboz in the back of the car this summer—cars heat up under the summer sun and can warp shoes.

Shoe Storage

  • When storing your Oboz for the off-season, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Be sure to clean and dry your Oboz before storing them in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. This will help extend the life of your footwear and ensure they’re in good shape for the start of next season. If you have a style with leather, we suggest conditioning them with NikWax for NuBuck Leather to keep the leather from drying out.
