Great Everyday Shoes
March 14, 2012

I purchased these shoes about 2 weeks ago and have already used them for both trail running on a nearby mountain and for casual wear to school and leisure. They are extremely comfortable in both settings. I would recommend going with the same size you wear in Nike shoes, since the two brands run similar sizes. All in all one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever put on my foot!!

Pros: comfort, price

Good shoe, well built, inexpensive...
August 23, 2011

This is a well built shoe. I chose it over the NorthFace trail-running shoe I had previously, which was very comfortable but not well constructed. The Columbia shoe is comfortable and very light weight. Seams are stitched, not just simply glued, and it feels like a quality product. My only issue is that the back of the shoe is tall, goes up higher on my Achilles than other running/trail shoes and rubs a little bit. But, that's my only complaint. Other than that, which isn't a major issue, the shoe is great.

Pros: comfortable, well constructed, light weight, Cons: rubs on back (achillies) a little.

Great buy

These shoes are great however, they seem to run larger than the other Columbia shoes I have purchased. They are very comfortable and the other Columbia shoes I have held up very well! This is an attractive shoe too!
