Columbia Sizing Chart
4 out of 5
nice, but too narrow in the calves
January 10, 2011
Bought these for my daughter, who really needs waterproof, durable winter boots for her daily commute, which includes walking to and from the train. They look stylish and the reputation of Columbia for durable winter wear is above reproach, BUT my daughter could not get them over her calves. With knee-high boots, this is a problem! She is athletic--not overweight!-- but could not even pull them on all the way to walk around. I suggest you put the calf circumference in the product description for others with a similar body build. She sooo wanted (and needed) these. I will say that, thankfully, the return process was painless. Will definitely order again from Altrec.Pros: Great design, Great value, stylish yet practical, Cons: too narrow in the calves

These boots grew on me! After receiving them and then trying them on I didn't know what to think besides what an awesome deal I got... So I kept them, and I am SO GLAD I did! The fit is snug in the calf, but for cold, rainy, snowy days they are absolutely perfect. Nothing gettin' in there! The brown color wasn't what I had anticipated....little too light for my taste, but for the height and comfort I'll give it 4 stars. I'm goin' for the black ones next...when the price comes down!

Love this boot! True in size. I have fairly large calves and have no trouble getting into boots an zipping them. They look very stylish and not at all clunky. Have not worn them in snow yet but they seem to keep my feet warm. Love the sole. Lots of traction. The shoe laces are not just for looks and can be tightened! They are fairly tall and I can wear them just fine with skinny Jeans!Pros: great fit. even with large calves, comfortable, very stylish, Cons: none so far

Biggest reason to buy is the enormous amounts of deep snow we have been getting and not wanting any more snow in my boots. These are great, fit perfect -seem true to size - I purchased a size 8, and will definitely keep the mounds of snow away from my ankles. Initially wondered if the laces were 'real' or if they were just for show..Fortunately the laces are just for show so there is no way snow will get in these boots unless it comes in over the top. No issue with the fit, the calf is great - not too tight at all. The inside is nice and warm. This is about the only thing I am looking forward to with the pending winter...rockin these boots. They are just too cute!
Great Winter Boots

The plush interior is truly warm and comfortable. The exterior is fashionable and waterproof. Columbia put this fashionable boot on their standard tread pattern base, so you get the shoe comfort and tread life that everyone expects from Columbia.

Keep in mind that it is August here in New England so I can't comment on the waterproof quality of these shoes. That being said, the warm furry inside appears that it will keep feet very warm in winter. I turned on my air conditioner full blast and walked around in these for about a half hour to make sure they fit well. They are true to size and I had no trouble fitting them over my calves, even with ski socks on. There was still enough room to wear a skinny jean with them. Granted, I'm fairly small (5'2", 105 lbs), but I am in shape. If you have very very athletic built calves you may have trouble, but the average person should find that these boots provide a great fit! They are also super easy to get on and off with the zip side. I can't wait to wear them to the slopes this winter!Pros: true to size, good shaft height, comfortable, Cons: laces are difficult to adjust
uncomfortable and stiff! :(

These boots are so adorable i was really really bummed when i put them on & could barely walk. It felt like i had braces on my legs they were that inflexible & hard to walk in. extremely stiff, and not comfortable at all. I am surprised so many people didn't have this issue with them. Anyway, i was very disappointed because i love the style & the Columbia brand for clothing (this is my first time trying Columbia shoes/boots). As for sizing, in my opinion they run true to size. i am a solid size 7, got them in 7's and the foot-bed was a perfect fit.Pros: cute design, congood quality construction, Cons: stiff, hard to walk in, not comfy
