<br>
<b>Ob&#333;z Yellowstone:</b> The econo-SUV of hikers, with mid-cut nubuck leather and waterproofing.<br>
<br>
<b>Likes: </b>Feels like something new: a high-top trail runner. Because of its fairly light weight (1 pound, 3 ounces in size 9) and a very flexible sole with rounded edges, I became confident enough to run off-trail in it. The ankle protection and "Be-Dry" waterproofing keeps feet dry and ankles unscratched.<br>
<br>
<b>Dislikes: </b>The flexible, rounded sole doesn't seem too stable. Lightweight, day backpacking, OK; heavy, loaded backpacking, no.<br>
<br>
<b>Price: </b>$119. (406) 522-0319;  <a href="http://www.obozfootwear.com">www.obozfootwear.com</a>.

The ankle protection and "Be-Dry" waterproofing keeps feet dry and ankles unscratched.

Dislikes: The flexible, rounded sole doesn't seem too stable. Lightweight, day backpacking, OK; heavy, loaded backpacking, no.
