instructor that’s familiar with going weeks on end without bathing, and an obsessed climber turned avid biker. This odd bunch managed to connect throughout the decades of being in the outdoor industry and decided to join up in 2007 to start Oboz.
Combine the words outside and Bozeman and you’ve got Oboz. Moreover, you’ve got something that speaks volumes about us and our priorities. Outside is where our heads are, always dreaming of the next peak to climb or river to float. And Bozeman, Montana is where we live, play and of course, work on making Oboz the best shoes out there. Bozeman is one of the great places to enjoy and be inspired by the outdoors. We’re at the northern edge of the greater Yellowstone ecosystem. You’ll find some 18 million acres of the wildest land in North America just outside of town, with mountain ranges like the Absarokas and Tetons, wildlife like grizzly bears, wolves and elk, plus some of the greatest places to hike, run, climb and fish. For us, Oboz is not just two words combined, but a way of thinking, living and doing that defines our company, our shoes and the people who wear them.
