We’ve taken our popular Whakatā Puffy camp shoe up a notch, to above the ankle. The elevated engineered knit cuff will warm your ankles and keep drafts and blowing snow out. Slip into the Whakatā Puffy Mid after slipping out of your ski boots for a cozy, comfy après at the trailhead or home in front of the fire.
Whakatā, pronounced fah-cah-TAAH, is Māori for “to catch breath, rest, have a break”.
Oboz consulted and got approval from the Māori language and culture guide at Oboz’s New Zealand-based parent company, KMD Brands, for use of the name. Oboz intends to honor the Māori culture in the best way—both within KMD Brands’ company walls and in the broader community.
Whakatā Puffy is All Gender sizing. Please verify the correct size using our size chart. If in between sizes we recommend sizing up.
