Sporting a revamped upper for spring, the Women's Switchback 2 Low Trail Running Shoe from Columbia Sportswear provides low-profile support that looks as good on the street as it does on the singletrack. Our revolutionary new Techlite® heel piece moves dense stabilizing elements to the outside (putting softer material directly against your foot) to provide a comfortable, supportive fit. At the midsole, full-length Techlite provides plenty of cushioning and lightweight flex over uneven terrain. Omni-Grip® traction on the rubber sole grips rocks, dirt, mud and just about anything else you encounter on off-road adventures. Breathable mesh and a soft material in the flex zones mean superior comfort with great agility and ease of movement. The gusseted tongue keeps out rocks, sticks, and dirt while light, sinewy overlays offer additional protection without adding unnecessary bulk.


  • Synthetic and breathable mesh upper 3-D Techlite heel piece for comfort, support and fit
  • Full length Techlite midsole for cushioning and lightweight flexibility
  • Full length Omni-Grip traction with aggressive lug pattern for good traction on adverse terrain
  • Weight: size 7 ½ pair = 8.95oz/243g

Size seems off
November 08, 2012

Very lightweight, however, will need to return. After replacing the footbed with my orthotics, the shoe fit is about one half size larger than my other size 7 Columbia shoes.

Good Shoes
November 20, 2012

Good hiking/town shoes. Comfortable and hold up decently. These are my second pair (I did wear a hole through the first eventually, but not unusually quickly). They do just fine for a walk through town or a hike/jog combination.

These shoes felt broken-in from the first time I put them on. They're lightweight, comfortable, sturdy and look great. I'm an avid walker and hope they last for many miles.
