Rated 5 out of 5 by Unbeatable winter boots Absolutely love these. It was -30º with wind chill this winter, and I wore these almost every day with a thin pair of socks and I couldn't have been more comfortable. Absolutely best winter boots! July 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my boots!!! Wonderful fit.....wears like a gym shoe. Wore them all day the first time and they felt great! Recommend....... March 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mixed feelings about these I bought this pair of boots to have a long walks with my son in the snow as my extremely warm UGG get wet pretty quick. Pluses: they are really light, very cosy, they don't get wet. Minuses: they are not as warm as UGG. You can't actually wear them without wool socks on your feet in freezing temperatures otherwise your feet get cold pretty soon. To jump in and out of the car you can get cotton socks on only but for one hour walks with a child, no way. February 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dry, toasty and cute What great boots! I was skeptical about these boots being dry and warm, but loved them so gave it a chance. They are super cute, and very lightweight and comfy. As luck (or not) would have it, we' ve had a snowy winter, and I was able to put them to the test - they passed with flying colors! Completely warm, dry and don' t get dirty (I bought the white). They do run really small - I normally wear an 8 - 8 1/2 and bought a 9 - they fit great with a thicker sock. February 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfy and warm These boots have been my best shopping for this horrible winter. My feet feel so warm and comfy because they fit perfect. Plus they match perfectly with any of my winter outfits. February 12, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not a cold wether boot I purchased these boots to walk my dog in cold weather and snow. Very disappointed in the boot. They do not keep my feet warm at all. I'd be better off with my hiking boots. They are also very slippery on ice and frozen snow. I am actually trying to return them to Columbia. If you are looking for a winter boot for cold weather and snow this is not the boot for you. February 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very comfortable I bought these boots under the pretense that they would keep my feet warm, however, I am one of those people that does not generate too much body heat for the boots to contain. Therefore they did not keep my feet warm. They are waterproof and after stepping in many puddles they have lived up to that aspect. They are very comfortable and feel better than most other waterproof boots that I have bought in the past. February 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good boots Good boots, but can't really fit skinny jeans into them without it getting all scrunched up at the bottom. However, they are comfortable and warm. Does its job February 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by very comfortable I love the shoes, very comfortable and light. Highly recommend them if you are looking for winter boots. February 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Boots EVER! My new boots are exactly what I was looking for. This winter has been very cold, and my feet are always warm in my new boots. They are light weight and have great traction. My old boots were okay, but they were bulky and hard to get on and off. The linings would come out every time I used them. These boots are light and warm and keep my feet warm and dry. I usually wear a 9 1/2 and I purchased a size 10. They fit well. I highly encourage you to get a pair of these boots. They are wonderful! February 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I survived the recent North Carolina cold, sleet and 4" of snow. I bought the boots for an anticipated Christmas trip to Quebec for 2014. This week North Carolina was hit with an unprecedented cold accompanied by sleet, ice and 4"+ of snow. I have two small dogs that are walked 4 times a day….we plowed through sleet, then snow for two - three days. The boots were fantastic…they kept my feet warm and dry with only one pair of wool socks. I normally wear a size 41/2 shoe but the size 5 that I ordered fit perfectly. I LOVE THE BOOTS. January 31, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Shoe I was a little hesitant in getting this product but I love it! Since I got it I wear it in taking public transportation to/from work. It has made the very cold mornings in December/January very comfortable and the boot is a lot better than my 'big' snow boot that I use for snowmobiling. Getting the larger size for shoes made it fit perfectly. Love the boot and I will not be going back to my old brand. January 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boot! Love the treads. We've got loads of ice and snow and this shoe makes me feel supported and stable walking on it. Extremely warm so make sure that if you are not out hiking and will be inside, you bring extra shoes to change into (this is a VERY good thing). Looks good. Can easily tuck pants into boot or drape over the outside without it looking too boxy. January 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by fashonable snow boots! love these they are cute ,warm, and comfortable ! January 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by warm & light weight My right foot has been comfortable in a size 5.5 (left is smaller) I found the 5.5 to be snug on the right food and fine on the left. The boot is well constructed and offers warmth and little weight. Traction is good. I recommend ordering one half size up. December 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So comfortable and WARM These boots are incredible! Not only are they VERY warm, but they are also very comfortable. It feels like I am walking on cotton balls! GREAT BUY! December 31, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable, practical and good looking My typical size 8 tennis shoes run a little small for me. I have a slightly taller and wider foot than average. I purchased the nine, and its actually a smidge too large. I can only comfortably wear them with mid to heavy weight socks. If I were to order again, I would order an 8.5. They fit around my calfs, which are usually too large for boots; and I love the light weight feel and flexible fabric. They're perfect for my needs and I love how they look! I haven't worn them below freezing yet. They've kept me warm at 30F and the shallow, dry snow in Denver hasn't penetrated through the shoe. With mid weight socks, I would expect warm feet at perhaps 10F. Too much colder, and they might not cut it. But I haven't experienced it yet. December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by City use -- for now Love them! First, I wear a size 7. These boots feel snug, but not uncomfortable. I actually like my boots snug. In fact, I have 2 other boots where I've had to place gel insoles to fit my size 7 feet. They feel light as air. They are cushioned just enough that I could walk comfortably in them. They are warm without the sweat. I was told that even wearing the thinnest of socks, they will keep my feet warm. The adjustable shaft fits me well even when wearing jeans. Here's the story: I've been eyeing these online, but I wanted to try them on. Sure enough, yesterday in downtown Seattle, we walked into a Columbia store and I tried on the last pair of 7's. I bought the black and they do have a sheen to them but not as shiny as the photo online. More of like an eggshell. I never took them off in the store! I paid for them and walked out in them!! That's how wonderfully comfortable they felt! Granted, city use is not the same as a hike up the mountain or 8 inches of snow, but at least now I can do those activities with confidence! When it's drizzly and wet here in the peninsula, I will wear them --even when it's not raining, I will wear them! They are going fast. Get them while you can. Worth the money. Btw, I am a rewards member and got $12 off on top! December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I LOVE these boots!! Seriously - I love these boots!! They are super comfortable (like wearing tennis shoes) and adorable! I get compliments galore when I wear these out. After reading the reviews, I ordered a half size up and they fit perfect. Very happy with this purchase! December 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid pair of boots These boots are exactly what I needed. I will wear them for walking through the city in the snow/slush/cold weather. I'm completely sold on the Omni-heat technology... it keeps your feet warm but never gets too hot. The fur at the top seems to be shedding a little bit (mostly when I drag my pants over the boots) but that is not too bothersome. I ordered 1/2 a size up and they fit really well. December 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable! I can wear them all day! I live in Wisconsin and these boots are just perfect for everyday wear. After reading reviews concerning running small I was concerned about size after I ordered them. However, they are perfect! December 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Winter shoes 1) thanks for the other reviews and I went with their suggestion and ordered half a size up which fits well and comfy with socks ( Generally use footwear of size 7.5 but ordered size 8) 2) Ordered Cordovan color which appears a light shade of brown and has a great appearance. 3) Great winter wear! Performs well in cold conditions. I could really feel my feet warm in low temperatures. 4) Only downside is it doesn't do well as expected while playing in the snow for a long time when there is a chance to get the shoes damp and then the feet seems cold. 5) I walked while it was snowing for nearly 3 miles, after it snowed, in sleet conditions and quite comfortable with it. I liked it a lot and recommended it to my sister who went with the Shale color. Extremely comfortable walking with the shoes and warmth. December 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super comfortable and warm!!! I ordered the Minx boots in white on Black Friday. I got them just in time for a huge temperature drop into the -20's. I loved them. Then hit mid calf, are very warm, and are surprisingly light weight. The traction is great. I use them to to bum around town and to and from work. I am a nurse and leave super early in the morning, having to wade through snow most morning in the parking lot. I am very pleased with this purchase. I was worried the white color would not stay clean, they easily repel stains and water. They are easy to lace and tie, a quick on and off. Definitely a great purchase and well worth the investment. I do not feel the cold seep up from the bottom like I have with some boots. I love these boots and suggest you try them too. I ordered a size 10, despite being a 9.5 due to reviews saying they run a little small, the 10 was perfect for me. December 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by good boots i am usually a 8.5-9 in shoe size. after reading reviews i ordered a 10. and it fits just fine. i love the color. they are really cute boots. December 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by hard to find. I have very small feet and most of my life I have had to really look hard for shoes and I never get boots. Mostly I can fit kids sizes but there is no support. These are toasty, and fit and surprisingly my feet don't hurt at the end of the day. I really love them. Thank you December 20, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not waterproof :( I bought these hoping they would be as good as all the reviews and was super disappointed when the first day I wore them out ten minutes after I walked in some light snow (maybe an inch) my feet were wet and cold. Other than that they were super comfy and the sizing was pretty good, I can range from a 9.5 to a 10 and got them in a 10. I returned them the next day though because living in NH I NEED waterproof warm boots! December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Could wear these every day of the week! Love, Love, Love! These boots are so comfy, they feel like a slipper, have good traction and are warm. I would love to buy them in different colors! They ran slightly small, but very easy to get on and off. December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light in weight but not in warmth or durability I've been wearing these boots for the past 2 weeks in one of the coldest/snowiest winters Chicago has experienced in years. The boots are very warm and comfortable...and still super cute. Very light, which adds to the comfort and ability to walk in snow and on ice easily. If you wear heavy socks, you may want to get a size larger, but otherwise the fit is great as well. December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best winter walking boot I purchased these boots to take on my winter trip to Europe (Dec-Jan). I am 2.5 weeks into my trip. I have worn the boots everyday so far. I walked all over the city of Mariupol, Ukraine in freezing tempertures and my feet was comfortable and warm the entire time. I walked for 5 hours in Milan, Italy and not once did I have to think about my feet. These boots are even cushiony enough to be easy on my knees. A nice soft cushiony feeling when walking. I visit Europe every winter and these are by far my best pair of shoes I have ever taken with me. December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Runs small, but GREAT winter boot These boots are great! The keep my feet toasty for everyday walking around in slush and snow, and are waterproof. They may not be enough for extended time in sub-zero temperatures, but that's not what they claim to be for. I also have to say I'm very impressed by their customer service they helped me with an order error on my part and were very patient and kind! Make sure to order a half to full size larger though! December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by These are awesome boots! I was looking for a pair of boots that I could wear to work and out. My feet are constantly freezing so they needed to be warm. These fit the bill! I got them in black and wear them everywhere! I have gotten many compliments on them, especially when I tuck my pants into them. They are very warm as long as I wear the right socks (but I think that's the case for any boot). I am happy with my purchase! December 17, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Run very small I own a different pair of Columbia winter boots and they fit true to size. Unfortunately, these boots run rather small so I ended up returning the to the store the next day. December 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE these boots ordered these online and was really pleasantly surprised. They are terrific in every way. I like the look of them. They fit great (especially a sock that is slightly on the thinner side) and most of all they are water proof and really warm. I expect to be wearing them for years. December 16, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by defects Pros: boot is warm, easy to slip on, is true to size and is a good boot. Cons: the first pair I received had a defect (the fabric was of various heights and the stitching did not match). I returned the first pair and bought a second pair (in all fairness, Columbia customer care was very nice on the phone). The second pair came and now the inside fabric on one boot folds down and hits my toes. I am not returning due to the fact that I had taken tags off right away not seeing defects on exterior of boot. It is disappointing to spend that kind of money on a boot from a well known company and not get a perfect product December 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this boot! I have been looking for 2 years for some winter boots that are warm and waterproof and that FIT! I wear a 10.5 - 11 and have a lot of trouble finding comfortable boots that fit. I ordered about 15 pair between last winter and this and finally found this boot that I absolutely love! Have had the opportunity with the snow in the Great Lakes the last couple of weeks to wear these boots and they are everything they were advertised to be! Warm. Waterproof. Comfortable. May be back to purchase the black ones! December 16, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Warm boot Great boot with extra warmth. I usually wear a 9.5, and I ordered a size 10 which was perfect. I wear the boots with normal socks and it fits great. I ordered the white boots (they come in off white color with cream trim) - they look very nice, but seem to get dirty pretty quickly, especially walking through all the snow/ice. If I ordered again, I would instead choose the black or brown color, so that it would get dirty so quickly. But great boot - really comfortable and I love the warm toes! December 16, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Super lightweight and functional I LOVE these boots:) My only complaint is that they are tight around the ankles so you absolutely must wear skinny jeans/leggings with them - Although you can adjust this with the laces, I find that having the laces looser around the ankles takes away from the sturdiness/comfort of the boot around your feet. They are definitely warm, cute, waterproof (so far) and great for walking! December 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best boots I ever bought This is my second pair of these boots! I was looking for a boot that I could walk my dog in, we go 3 - 4 miles a day. Warm, fit like a tennis shoe, comfortable, did I say warm! Light weight, good traction, easy on and off. This is the best! I recommend to anyone who wants all of the above in a boot. December 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great comfortable winter gear Excellent for walking. They keep my feet warm and dry and have good traction in the snow. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the perfect boot for winter in the South These boots are so comfortable and light weight that I wear them more than any others I own. They are warm and keep the moisture out and are easy to clean and they are very fashionable. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by No more cold toes! Glad I read previous reviews and ordered a size larger than my usual. Perfect fit! Such a light weight boot yet it provides warmth even when temps are in the 20s! Boots look great and are easy to keep clean. December 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best winter boots! I recently moved to Minnesota, where, as a lot of people know, Winters are brutal. I needed a pair of boots that would not only look cute, but were practical. I bought these in white and I've had them for a couple of weeks now and just love them. Since they're Omni-Heat, I wear them for a few minutes inside before heading out. It helps to build up a little warmth and I've noticed it works better that way. I've had to walk in 6" snow and they keep my feet dry and warm. Snow doesn't seep in at all. Also, I ended up getting them in half a size larger than my actual shoe size (instead of an 8, I got 8.5) and they fit so well with thick Smartwool socks! Definitely recommend these boots to anyone living in a colder climate! December 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Omni heat is wonderful These boots are so comfortable and keep my toes nice and warm Tried them with a thin and a thicker pair of wool socks and was happy with either option. They do run on the small size so got one size larger and are just right. They are easy to slip on and off and can be laced up tight. Love them December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very warm They feel very warm here in Minnesota it's zero out today and my feet are not cold walking. I will be wear them every day to work. December 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Warm! I really love these boots. They are so warm. The tempture is 7 feinthiet outside and my feet are toasty warm. Also they are so light and comfortable. The only thing about these boots is that they run really small. At first I order an 11 because I read that they run small (I usually wear a 10) and had to return them for a 12. December 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Popular Boot Very nice design and style, plus function. December 5, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not Waterproof I bought these boots because I was looking for a pair of warm winter boots that wouldn't be too bulky for walking around a college campus. I love the look and style of the boots, and they are very comfortable. However, the boots are not waterproof as advertised. We had the first big snowfall of the season recently, and after wearing them to walk to class, my feet were wet and extremely cold. I did not walk through any puddles, but only walked on snowy sidewalks and streets. December 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Boots The boots fit small, so I did go one size up. I normally take a size 11 but ordered a 12. They are so comfortable! I would like to get another pair. I like that they come in larger sizes as well, because I have a hard time finding boots that fit. They feel as comfortable as slippers. November 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice boots I am happy with these boots. Just as others suggested I sized up 1/2 size. I normally wear a 6 1/2 I bought a 7. They are great boots. Very comfortable and easy to get on and off. November 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Love Love and Love these Boots, Size is perfect for me, It's hard to find boots/shoe in my size, cause I have a very small feet, but because of these boots said Fits Slightly Small, I knew it was perfect already, Its Light and Warm, No shocks needed. November 20, 2013
