Too many times compromises are made to make a hiking shoe light and fast—not the Oboz Katabatic Mid Waterproof. It has the hallmarks of a light and fast shoe with all the features of a true hiker: support, stability, protection, and performance. The highly breathable waterproof Katabatic Mid is engineered to move fast on the trail and built for wet weather.
We use our own gender-specific lasts to address the anatomical nuances between different types of feet. Length runs true to size. Form hugging heel cup, sculpted mid-foot, and a generous forefoot & toe box.
