If you’re a speedy trekker who likes to take on coastal paths and rocky trails, BCH Camping highly recommend the Oboz Katabatic men’s low waterproof walking shoes.
We chat to many different types of outdoor enthusiasts at our stores, all with individual needs when it comes to footwear. Terrain and weather are significant factors in the choice of footwear, as of course are comfort and fit.
When it comes to light and fast trekking, your footwear needs to offer substantial grip. Your shoes should also ideally be 100% waterproof and lightweight for enhanced agility and comfort. Taking on tricky terrain like coastal footpaths would prove difficult in heavy walking boots.
These are the reasons why, at BCH Camping, we put our faith in the Oboz Katabatic men’s low waterproof walking shoes. They have it all when it comes to light and fast trekking!
Features of the Oboz Katabatic men’s low waterproof walking shoes
In meteorology, katabatic means ‘wind caused by local downward motion of cool air’. Oboz call their Katabatic collection ‘a better kind of fast’. The styles within the Katabatic brand adapt to various terrains, working with the biomechanics of the foot to provide the trekker with as much energy, speed and agility as possible.
For the Katabatic men’s low waterproof walking shoes, Oboz have combined their lightest weight midsole with their highly breathable B-DRY waterproof membrane for remarkable comfort.
The Katabatic men’s low waterproof walking shoe is the ideal choice for agile trekkers who are particularly environmentally conscious. Oboz have introduced eco-friendly features wherever possible.
O FIT Insole®
Oboz’s unique O FIT Insole® is moulded to match the specific shape and construction of the shoe. The O FIT Insole® features Ortholite® Eco™ that provides customised elasticity for enhanced rebound and energy underfoot, and contains 12% plant-derived bio-oil content as a replacement for petroleum.
The insole also features a fully recycled moisture wicking top layer.
The B-DRY lining provides waterproofness and breathability. It is 100% recyclable and made from 25% post industrial waste.
Oboz’s Trail Tread rubber compound sole offers exceptional slip-resistance and durability.
The mesh upper allows the feet to breathe while also acting as a barrier against trail debris.
Rubber Heel Counter
Your heel is protected by the rubber heel counter and supported on uphill terrain. The heel has an 8mm rise.
TPU Overlays and Toe Cap
These provide durability and protection.
Who are Oboz?
The Oboz name was inspired by the Bozeman mountains near the company’s headquarters in the US state of Montana. The name is a combination of ‘outside’ and Bozeman. The company philosophy is to “design the kind of footwear that we’d want to wear”.
As a company that evolved from a love of hiking and the outdoors, the sustainability of their operation and products is a prime motivator behind their designs. For every pair of Oboz shoes sold, the company plants a tree. They also carbon-offset their shoe shipments, all employee travel and their energy costs.
