Function meets style with the Oboz Sapphire boot designed with women in mind
Prepare to fall in love with the Oboz Women’s Sapphire Boot. The moment we slipped this boot on, we knew that there was no turning back. Other women’s specific winter boots we’ve tested always seem to fall short somewhere — whether it’s in the appearance or the design. But this boot has it all: style, comfort, warmth and more.
At first glance, the Oboz Women’s Sapphire Boot not only looks sleek (we tested out the black model), but is fashion-forward with a subtle plaid accent at the base of the calf. Both traditional laces and a zipper on the inside of the boot offer multiple ways to step into the boot effortlessly. Size is true, with a little wiggle room for a thicker sock if you are looking to bundle up; but our feet also stay warm with a thinner sock on as well.
Often we see that comfort is sacrificed for the sake of warmth, but the low-density EVA pods, medium-density EVA underfoot and high-density EVA deep heel cup all work together to create Oboz’s exclusive O FIT Insole™ Thermal, a warm and cozy insole that makes pulling on these boots all the more satisfying.
The winterized rubber sole prevented any slippage, and the level of insulation and waterproofing is exceptional. These boots are composed of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation and O FIT Insole™ Thermal for additional warmth, while the waterproof Nubuck leather and B-DRY waterproofing work to keep the elements out. A thick rubber toebox also shields toes from any encounters with chunks of ice or concealed, snow-covered rocks.
These are guaranteed to be a hit this winter for the adventurous yet fashion-forward woman, and will be the perfect gift to yourself or a lady friend this holiday season.
