Great shoe for a great value
August 01, 2012
I'm incredibly happy with this shoe. I was going to pay a little bit more to get the shoe with red in the trim, but I decided the value on this shoe was perfect and couldn't be passed up for what I thought was a slightly better looking shoe. These shoes let your feet breathe and they keep your feet dry (even in a downpour). I have not tested its ability to keep your feet dry underwater, but in a rain that might as well have been equivalent to jumping in a pool with my shoes on, my foot was bone-dry when the clouds cleared. If you are on the fence about this show, don't be. Also, I read reviews advising people to buy a half-size up --- I wouldn't again if I decided to buy these once more. I bought an 11 instead of a 10.5 per the reviews, and my shoe is a little big. However, when hiking, you want that extra space for the hike down and the beating on your feet. Enjoy, and good-outdoors'n!Pros: breathability price and waterproof
Excellent shoes for hiking

I like this brand for many years. All of my out doors are Columbia. When I arrived the US, I want to buy a shoe for autumn and winter. I bought this shoe 40 days ago. From last week I started to wear because the wether turns cold. This shoes are also very comfortable for long distance hiking and daily wearing. It has a high capacity to keep keep you feet warm. The price is reasonable. It's a best choice for everyone who want an outdoor hiking shoe.
So Far So Good

Just moved to Seattle and wanted a wet weather running shoe. Read many reviews across the net that described these shoes as runners as well as hikers, so I decided to give them a try. Columbia site states that shoes are sized appropriately, but I found on many other sites that you should purchase 1/2 size larger. I took that advice and am happy that I did. Received the shoes yesterday and went for 4 miles this morning, in dry conditions. Initially, shoes felt a little stiff (I read similar elsewhere so was not surprised) but within a mile felt nice. Laces stayed tied the whole run, and feet did not ache during. Finished the run blister/hot spot free, and satisfied with my purchase. Looking forward to some wet weather now, and some trail running with these shoes.
