Our customized midsoles deliver precise torsional stability and protection. Firm but lightweight, they allow for streamlined outsoles. 1. Nylon shank offers added support between heel and forefoot.
2. Single-density EVA midsole provides supportive balanced cushioning.

I took pictures of the used pair along with the new pair to show how the sole and leather wore for me. You can see the typical tear that leather boots have with the rubber tipped toes. Every boot that I have owned typically failed at this interface between the rubber and the leather.
The uppers look NOTHING like the Amazon photograph. The Amazon photos show a dual-color "nubuck" or suede appearing upper with a slightly contrasting cross-stitched pattern through the side arch. What I unboxed was considerably different. The entire upper is basically one color, all panels and stitching. The material is much smoother and on first glance looks more like "pleather" than leather...
Fit is horrible. First words of caution.... If you wear a normal-to-wide foot, order the WIDE width! My foot width is kind of in between normal and wide. Some shoes I can get away with normal and others I have to have the wide width. However, after reading the reviews on sizing I ordered an 11.5 wide to be on the safe side. The length of the shoe does run about a half size smaller, so I'm thankful to have ordered the 11.5. Width is another story... I have no idea who could fit their foot into a pair of these if they bought the standard width boot. Putting them on for the first time, I had to loosen the laces all the way to the toe to get my feet in them. I'm wearing them today to see how much the fit and flexibility improves. One things for sure, these are "cruel shoes" when first putting them on.
This is my first pair of Oboz and maybe I'm expecting more from them than I should. However, given the price, I feel I should have some pretty high expectations. I've been a Keen boot person for almost 10 years now. Keen stopped making the boot I liked. These seemed to be closest thing to what Keen used to have so I decided to give them a try.
I really expected a better fit and was hoping for a better appearance out of the box. I'm hoping that both improve with a few days of wear. We'll see....
So here goes for the one-month follow-up. Luckily I'm still within the return window for these. As I said on the initial unboxing, I wasn't happy with the "plastic" look of these boots. They don't look like $200 boots and they certainly don't fit like $200 boots. I've added a photo to the update review and you tell me if what's on my feet look like what's on the Amazon site...
I've worn these nearly everyday for a month, 10 hour plus days, and they refuse to break-in, soften or otherwise yield. As I said earlier in this review I have a normal to wide foot and can get away with wearing either a normal or wide shoe. I ordered these in wide and they still HURT and feel the same as they did out of the box.
Definitely returning and once the credit is received I'll be going after a pair of Danners or something like that... Also dropped my review from 2 stars to 1. Sorry Oboz, these are a complete "miss".

Will add to this review when the boots have had a lot more use, early signs are good.
Edit: Have been using these for nearly three months now, everyday. Support and comfort continues to be excellent, they keep my feet dry and appear to be wearing well with no signs of any build quality issues. I WILL be buying these boots again.
PS, I bought size 13, not 8 as stated above.
The product looks very well built, nothing against Oboz here... the boots are simply too narrow for me. I am 6'6" and wear 14W or XW (EE or EEE), depending on the brands so this is the cost I have to pay to eventually find something that fits! Some resellers are comparable in prices AND will not charge for returns. Cheers
