Just NOT worth the money Ok so I did an insane amount of research on winter boots and repeatedly found that this boot was the best reviewed. I cannot for the life of me understand why. For a boot thats rated for -25F/-32C my feet should not be freezing cold at 17F. However, this is what I have found. Anything below 30F and my feet are FREEZING! One pair of wool socks or two doesnt matter. Last night I wore these boots around downtown Chicago for about 3 hours in 17F weather and by the end of it my feet were so cold they were in terrible pain. When I got home it took a heating pad to warm my feet up enough to get them to stop hurting. What a complete waste of money. I have bought gloves, a balaclava, boots, and a coat with omni-tech and have learned that the omni-tech garbage is really only effective in the coats. December 31, 2014
1 month of having them I'm a UPS delivery driver and i needed winter boots for the cold season. Majority of my shoes are a size 11 but with these i had size up one. Thankfully i bought mines from Sports Authority so i was able to try it on before purchasing it. They're very comfortable and lightweight for boots with so many features in it. I found my feet sweating in mid 40's degree weather. 30's is perfect. December 28, 2014
I love 'em! I wish that I was more of a technical person so I understood how Columbia's "omni-shield" works. But I'm a believer! As a movie and tv cameraman, I'm on my feet all day in all kinds of weather. These boots are amazing: comfortable to walk and stand in and my size 13s don't feel like I'm Bozo the clown! Bitter cold I just used heavier socks, just cold, regular socks and feet stayed dry and toasty all day. December 21, 2014
Perfect Winter Boots First things first: these boots run a full size small. I'm normally a size 7.5, I got size 8.5 and they fit very comfortably. I would recommend these boots due to their comfortable feel, attractive look, and (importantly) warmth. You could easily walk through large snow banks in these without feeling it. The only knock against them is they take a short while to break in the ankle portion; it chafes for the first week. After that they flex well and feel great. December 16, 2014
Bring on the Winter! I am a avid Golfer you plays daily here in Vancouver BC and as anyone who lives here knows it get's pretty wet and muddy this time of year. Rather than ruining another pair of Golf Shoes I bought the Bugaboot II and could not be happier. Standing water, Mud, Cold temperatures these boots will handle it all with ease and the soles are great for traction on ice as well. December 16, 2014
Excellent Product I bought a pair for myself, and my wife. So far, we have been very happy with these boots. It's not even winter yet officially here in upstate New York, but we've already had lots of snow and ice. These boots are keeping our feet warm and are well made. I feel secure on the snow and ice. They look great (I bought black) and wear very well. Mine fit perfectly (Size 13) and we are glad we got the size up (10) for my wife, as a 9-1/2, would have been too snug for her. Good work and thanks! We got these during the Black Friday Special, so the price was awesome. December 16, 2014
Perfect fit These boots caught my eye right away. Lightweight and a perfect fit. Have not used them in cold conditions yet but I'm sure they will deliver. December 4, 2014
Comfortable Boots I use these boots to work and play outside in the winter. They replaced a pair of bugaboos that I have had for nearly a decade. They are very comfortable, and feel less bulky than most pack boots. I was hesitant to get the tall boots, but it turn out to be a great decision. (no snow over the top) December 4, 2014
Outstanding Boot I have had this type of boot for over 4 years. Have worn them in all kinds of weather. I use to work 9 to 10 hours a day and was on My feet for at least 8 to 9 hours of it, if not longer. Walked 5 to 8 miles a day in them. The sole of the boots are just now showing major wear but still water proof and warm. Yes I do highly recommend this boot to any and all that need an all weather comfortable boot November 19, 2014
Great boots I bought these boots for pheasant hunting. They're lightweight, waterproof, comfortable, and exactly what I was wanting. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. November 14, 2014
Reviews Didn't Disappoint In my quest to find a cold weather boot, the Bugaboot Plus II Omni-Heat kept appearing in the top ten winter boot review sites as one of the best on the market. It boasts complete waterproofing, a patented heat-reflecting/moisture-wicking built-in lining, and a lightweight, yet supportive outer sole and upper that fit comfortably under pants. I needed a pair of boots that can withstand sub-zero temperatures for long stretches outdoors (12+ hours, sometimes low activity). While I thought these might be a little light for this challenge, I couldn't believe the first time I put them on, they actually got warmer the longer I wore them. Really impressive heat retention capabilities. I wear a 10.5 shoe (US), my feet tend to fit a bit wide in some brands. I purchased the 11 so I could double up socks if ever necessary, but they are roomy & great fit with just one pair of thick socks. I think I will be a repeat customer if these ever wear out. Well-done, Columbia; the high accolades are well-deserved. November 13, 2014
This product has great features! Fiancé love these!!! October 10, 2014
No more frozen feet Since I was a little kid, I have had issues with my feet getting really cold and numb. This would make it difficult as a Bass Angler to stay out on the water all day long in the Spring and Fall when it was chilly outside. Since getting a pair of Bugaboots, I have not had this problem anymore. They keep my feet warm, dry and comfortable all day long. I would definitely recommend them to EVERYONE!!! February 1, 2014
Warm and sturdy boot These boots are great. Definitely waterproof standing in 5 inches of water. Very warm hiking in snow in thin socks. A little narrow in the foot but fits like a glove. I have ankle issues and the hi height really helps with ankle stabilization. Well worth it. January 20, 2014
Mens Bugaboot This is the 3rd pair of Bugaboots that I have own...always get 4- 5yrs of service out of these boots....most excellent quality. January 14, 2014
Provided excellent warmth and traction. Boot met or exceeded all expectations to endure Michigan winters. January 12, 2014
Best Snow Boot I just bought a second pair of Bugaboot Plus II Omni-Heat, so I can work day after day in the snow and give each pair a full day to dry out all the way. Over the course of a day, they keep your feet warm and dry, regardless of weather, and they are so light and have such great traction, its a pleasure to work in winter conditions. I partner them up with Outdoor Research Crocodile gators which clip neatly onto the front gator ring, and wear a pair of chainsaw chaps over the top of all that, and it doesn't matter if the snow is 3' deep - toasty toes all day with a thin cotton and a thick wool sock inside! January 10, 2014
Great ankle support, a bit stiff I've had the boots for a couple months now and have been wearing them daily. They have done well from 32° to -37°. Socks make a big difference. I've had an ankle reconstruction, and am always looking for good support. These boots certainly provided that. On the down side, they are fairly stiff. Mine have started to develop an odd crease in on the sides. Also on the slight negative, they don't breathe as well as others, anything near or above freezing, and it's like a sauna in there. All in all, I'm happy to recommend the boots. They are significantly less bulky than my 1500 gram boots, and provided similar warmth. January 7, 2014
great boots bought as a gift for my husband, he has trouble finding comfortable shoes and boots. he loves these boots. at first thought they felt small but they seem to be okay now. the boots are very warm, excellent traction, and are very light weight. January 5, 2014
Great product My second pair of Bugaboot in about 7 years or so. This pair is very light and comfortable. Had my first chance to wear them this week in -15 F and my feet stayed nice and warm with one pair of wool socks on. Work all day outside at a nordic skiing resort. January 3, 2014
Omni Heat Best Boots ever These are the best boots I have ever had they keep my feet warm and they are light - not heavy and clunky December 31, 2013
Great boots I'm on feet all day and these boots keep my feet warm and dry. Definitely my favorite pair boots. December 30, 2013
warm and very light Perfect boot warm, dry and light very hard to find boots that have those three qualities highly recommend these boots worth every penny. December 29, 2013
Columbia has the best shoes My brother who lives in Bulgaria loves Columbia shoes. Unfortunately there is no Columbia store there so I had to send him the shoes from here. Our Christmas wish is that Columbia store will open in Bulgaria. December 16, 2013
great boot Worked great in the recent snow storm, looks nice too! December 16, 2013
Keep the snow out Great boots! Wearing them, I feel like I were a tank that can break all the barriers in my way. They also very warm. I love them so much. December 15, 2013
Nice winter boots Good looking nice boots. December 4, 2013
Good price. Good boot. The boot is good. They are a little stiff but hoping they will continue to break in. Warm and extremely water proof. Wore boots through ponds and high mud... No leaks. Rinsed the mud off with a hose while wearing the boots.... No leaks. Will buy again. Look forward to using in snow. October 29, 2013
Perfect Boot I purchased this unseen and untried for my husband who is a UK size 11 with medium to broad feet. So to be safe, erred on the side of caution and went for a UK 11.5 = US 12. It's perfect and he is delighted (he is not easy to buy for). I would recommend a 1/2 size bigger if you are unable to try before you buy. October 15, 2013
