If you’re hiking in the mountains, especially where it snows, you need a great pair of waterproof hiking boots. After a lot of research and trying boots on, I ended up purchasing some Oboz Hiking Boots.
I bought the Oboz Bridger Mid B-Dry waterproof hiking boots.

I found the Oboz Bridger’s to be more comfortable then any other hiking boot I tried on. I went into the store to purchase a different pair of boots but the staff recommended that I try a lot of boots on to make sure I found the right one for me. It took me more then 1 hour trying on probably 8 different pairs of boots, not counting multiple sizes in each pair, before I knew the Oboz Bridgers were the right pair of waterproof hiking boots for me.
The felt a little stiff initially, but now after hiking on more then 20 trails here in Colorado with them, they are extremely comfortable and I love having them as part of my top items in my hiking gear.
I have been hiking in 20 degree weather, in deep snow, ice, mud, steep terrain and in nice dry conditions and I have been extremely happy with these boots.
On one of my recent hiking trips, I was hiking in snow that varied from 6 inches to about 2 feet and having these Oboz Bridgers along with some great hiking pants, the Kull Silencer Rogues, I never had any snow get into the inside of my boots or pants. I need to add some gaiters and snow shoes to my pack but I was surprised at how well I did in the snow on that hike.
I understand that everyone’s feet are different and we use our boots in different ways and conditions but you should check out these boots if you are a serious hiker or backpacker.
