Review: Oboz Sypes Low

In addition to spending much of my free time on my feet—hiking, running, ambling around town—I use a standing desk at work. Therefore, I am constantly searching for shoes that are supportive on various surfaces, from pavement to carpet to dirt. With the Sypes Low Leather Waterproof, Oboz has created a shoe to match my lifestyle. 

Morever, the Sypes can claim a host of responsible features including 100% recycled laces, webbing, and linings. The insoles are constructed of a plant-based foam made with algae biomass harvested from bodies of water at high risk of algae bloom. Not to mention that Oboz plants a tree for every pair of shoes sold. 

On top of the environment-friendly features, this shoe boasts durable, waterproof, abrasion-resistant fabric. The Bend outsole has deep lugs for superior grip on trails and increased surface area for alleviation on pavement, along with a lightweight midsole designed for resilience, support, and comfort.

The Sypes is a great combination of comfort and style and its versatility makes it a true multipurpose shoe, for walking, hiking, biking, or running, from Main Street to the mountains.

Available at Schnee's in downtown Bozeman; $145.
