The Oboz About Them! Outside + Bozeman = Oboz Right outside our front door, the mountains just outside Bozeman beckon us. It's this 18-million-acre laboratory where we test our designs and inspire ideas, and where we just soak it all in. It even inspired the name “Oboz”. Each day we come to work, we simply do our best to live up to this gift. Here at Oboz, we are hikers, we are walkers, we are runners, we are bikers, we are anglers…we are many things, and yet we’re all connected on the trail. It's this lifelong love of the trail that enables our designers to create footwear that's remarkably durable, comfortable, and always worthy of the task at hand. Our philosophy is simple. Design the kind of footwear that we'd want to wear.
