Men's Outback II - Wheat/Java
The Outback is unlike any other outdoor shoe on market. Inspired by the skate shoes we grew up wearing, and sharing the same vulcanized construction method, it’s low profile look immediately sets it apart. However, this book’s cover doesn’t tell the whole story. If you dig deeper you’ll find top shelf materials and technical features that give the Outback real off-road capabilities. Constructed from 2.0mm oiled leather or suede, a DWR coating, and a gusseted tongue, the Outback will do its part to keep the elements out. On the inside you’ll find a bespoke anti-microbial EVA innersole with increased arch support so your feet don’t fatigue. We also use a vari-flex Bi Fit lasting board to control flexion over rough terrain, without compromising everyday wearability. Also, they look cool, unless you want that, “my whole life is a through-hike” look.
So, if you’re looking for a light hiking boot that ditches the needless bulk and over the top styling in favor of clean aesthetics and rugged durability, then this is the shoe for you. Let’s not forget that Outdoor Magazine said, “This Boot Can Do Anything!”, and they, of course, were right.

This is my second pair of Outback II boots. I can't remember exactly when I got the first pair (maybe 7-8 years ago?) but they're still doing ok. I just figured a new pair would have fresh heel and arch support, as I have high arches. I like the fact these boots kind of look like trainers, but are pretty waterproof, so they're good for autumn and winter walks in the woods, but also heading into town or more urban places, cos they look fairly cool. I'd like a tiny bit more padding in the heel, but they seem to hold up well for my increasingly sensitive feet these days.
Excellent footwear and service!
i love my shoes they fit perfect and look great i will be ordering more when i’m able to. ordered half size up and it was perfect
I needed some more urban-type shoes rather than primarily hikers, but still prefer a more rugged feel and these fit the bill nicely. Good quality, needed a little time to break in, some thicker socks helped. So, in the end really comfy and I like the smaller company feel and stylish design too.
Fit and finish was causing blisters on both my feet. For $100+ plus shoe, I would have expected better quality.
The problem you have is not common on the Outback. Feet are an Enigma. They come in all shapes and sizes and every once in awhile the match with feet and footwear does not work. Please send back for a full refund. Thanks for trying Ridgemont!
