Rated 4 out of 5 by Hiked 500 Miles in these shoes Last fall I hiked the 500 mile Camino de Santiago in these shoes and they held up quite well. Very comfortable and durable. Only issue was the waterproofing. In heavy rain your feet are going to get wet. Going to retire my old pair now and get a new pair. October 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by comfy hiking shoes bought a pair a month ago. so far, so good! better than good! wore them everyday to work. feels really solid and comfortable. sole is soft. used to buy shoes from competing brand. now it's all columbia. September 1, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by lightweight hiking only Fit = Average. Really have to tie them super tight for downhill trails. Tread = Very good. Seems to grip well on all trail surfaces. Support = Average. Not stiff enough midsoles for long hikes on rocky trails. Good for running on smooth trails. This is a decent shoe but not the best. The description says the shoe can be used for a variety of trail activities. I agree - up to a point. After using this shoe for a month on a variety of trails, I think it not sturdy/stiff enough for rocky trails. You can feel the sole flex and give-way when stepping on trail rocks. This results in sore feet when on a long hike. Some people might like the softer feel for running though. August 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice! I was surprised by how comfortable these waterproof hikers were! I use them day to day for work and then straight to the woods. The only problem is that they look so nice I don't want to get them dirty, but since they are waterproof you can just hose them down once you are done for the day! Great shoe. May 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by THIS SHOE IS VERY COMFORTABLE The North Plains has good toe room which make them very comfortable. I also like the aggressive tread. April 27, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Almost a good shoe This pair seemed ok, but I had to return them because they slipped in the heal. We (these were for my son) did go up a half size like recommended and it did seem like we had the right size. It was constructed well and fit good in the width. This is our 2nd pair of Columbia shoes so I was really disappointed it slipped in the heal so much. When I looked at his last pair it had three holes at the top to lace them down snug but this generation of shoes Columbia has changed how the shoes lace, providing only one hole at the top (and seems a little to low down), not the three they provided only a few years ago. So there is no way to really tighten them down snug. After looking online all the shoes this season seem to all lace the same so I will have to look for another brand of shoes. We are very disappointed. Last year we picked up a awesome pair that were indestructible and very similar to this pair. He wore them everyday - he loved that they were waterproof and in Oregon out on the playground at school his feet never got wet. The last pair fit a little more snug at the ankle and with 3 holes to lace at the top we were able to do a runners knot and keep them extra snug. If anyone from Columbia reads this: Why do you change the designs of your shoes so much year to year. It is so frustrating as a customer when you find something that works only to have it completely change. And having more lacing options is a standard in most hiking and running shoes, what gives?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Not true to size After reading a previous review, I ordered size 11 rather than my usual 10.5 - the length was fine but width too narrow. Good looking sturdy shoe so would recommend if it were true to size. September 18, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Waterproof? This is a very comfortable pair of shoes EXCEPT these are NOT waterproof. It's not even like I was standing in water. Playing disc golf in the morning with the grass very wet from morning dew. Socks were soaking wet. I don't see where they can back their claim. Disappointed. September 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice hickers These sneakers are of very good quality ! They offer very good lateral support which I personally like! Had one problem, with sizing, this sneakers run on the short size, order a half size bigger! I bought them online and the free shipping is great but I had to pay $10 to send them back and meanwhile buy another pair, the refund was handled in a very straight forward and friendly manner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Très bien! Une très bonne chaussure bien dessinée et bien fabriquée et surtout très confortable. L'accroche est excellente mais je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de tester sa résistance à l'humidité. Elle m'a tellement plu que j'ai recommandé la même en version non "waterproof" pour les randonnées par grosses chaleurs. April 15, 2015
