Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boot for $$ My wife purchased these for me as a gift, and having to retire my Scarpa one pc leather Vibram soles..... I have to say that these boots have been worn every day of the week for the last 8 months! Miles and miles have been put on these boots servicing properties for landscape maintenance. From walking on concrete and asphalt, to standing behind a mower all day, these boots are durable, comfortable and lightweight. I usually try to go for a good one pc leather hiking boot to keep my feet dry through wet grass, and these were good about keeping my feet dry for about 4 months and then seemed to have lost their repellent capabilities... but so does most ones after a while. My foot is rather long and slender for my size, (6' - 220) so I cant speak for everyone, but they mold to my foot well. These will probably only last me about one season, but for the price their worth it. I would only get 2 seasons out of a $290 Scarpa! ;) And from being experienced with Garmont, Merrell, Scarpa, etc. These are not probably as protective for your ankle and actual foot.... but they're only a fraction of the weight. They would be excellent for a day hike, during dry conditions. ;) September 14, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Narrow fit Although this boot does not appear in the website photos to be narrow, it is indeed a narrow boot. It is narrow on the sides of your foot, and particularly narrow in the toe-box, excessively pressing all of your toes against each other; this would not be suitable for any extended walking or hiking. Additionally, although I did not get the opportunity for extended trials, the foot bed appears to be very hard/lacking any cushion-- overall, it unfortunately has the feel of a cheaply made/priced boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome This is my first order from Columbia and I will buy from again and again. These boots are the best I have ever had. Love the color and seem they will hold up for years July 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfort right out of the Box!! This is my first pair of Columbia Hikers and I am impressed!! These boots are so comfortable. Haven't taken them into the woods yet, but if they are comfortable on 100* pavement during a HOT Texas Summer can't wait to get them into the field. July 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Everyday boots I bought these boots as my everyday footwear for the winter. I am a school teacher, so I am not hiking 20 miles a day. However, they have been great for school. Comfortable enough to wear all day. In my current position am standing and walking about the school school campus consistently, and these have proven to be great boots for that type of day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, with drawback Overall, very satisfied with this boot. One drawback is the lacing and hooks. The top hook is a little small. Doesn't allow free movement of this lace itself, making it difficult putting on the shoe and then lacing it up. Overall, good product with a small hiccup. December 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Boots They are comfortable and are the closest thing you have to the best boot you ever made the danska pass. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent winter boots This is the 2nd pair of Coretek boots I've owned. The first pair lasted 6 years and could have gone longer. Now they're my work boots. The boots are comfortable, waterproof, sturdy and lightweight. Great traction on snow or ice. Everything I was looking for. Great for city shopping, around the house work or mountain hiking/walks.
