Active technology born on the trail to go light and fast.

NEW ARETE COLLECTION

Our new Arete Collection is designed to go fast and travel light on the trail. Featuring a streamlined construction with no-sew breathable mesh uppers and our dynamic A3 chassis system, the Arete delivers active performance on the trail with uncompromising fit, support and protection.

Arete Shoes R1

We built our Aretes around our fit philosophy, drawing inspiration from our collective decades of industry experience and the countless miles we’ve logged on our own favorite trails.

O FIT Insole™
Our proprietary insole is what we’re known for. Molded to match the specific shape and construction of every pair we make, this purpose-designed technology delivers the kind of fit, feel and performance that’s unmatched in the industry.
A3 Chassis™ Two-Piece Suspension
Independent TPU stabilizers provide torsional flex and allow for natural articulation while the single density EVA throughout provides cushioning and comfort.
A3 Chassis™ Integrated Shank & ESS Plate
The integrated shank reduces weight while providing proper support and flex points. The ESS forefoot plate mitigates over-flexion and protects from stone bruising.
Tempest Outsole
Our Tempest outsole reduces weight without compromise, featuring multi-directional and perimeter lugs for traction, and active flex grooves for freedom of movement.

We plant a tree for every pair of Oboz sold.

Since our very first pair sold back in 2007, we've had a tree planted. That's over 3 million trees and counting.
