Bozeman, Montana. It’s where it all started. It’s what inspired our name. And it’s what motivates us to lace up daily and explore the 18 million acres of Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem that surround us. A vast and breathtaking landscape of peaks, valleys and rivers just waiting to be explored on two feet. Outside + Bozeman = Oboz. 280 hands touch every pair before you do. The difference between good and great fitting footwear is the human touch. That’s why it takes 140 talented people to make each pair we sell. Sure it’s harder to hand-build footwear this way, but it’s the right way. Tested in the lab and in the field our materials are carefully selected from known suppliers and developed to spec. All our material suppliers are verified for environmental and social compliance by our full-time factory staff.
