Rated 4 out of 5 by Took 2 tries to get it right Gifted to my Daughter --2nd pair in 1/2 size larger fits well---She has worn them at work and likes them January 14, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worst winter snow since 1940 We are having the worst winter since 1940 as far as snow fall. These boots are incredible. Keep my feet warm and toasty. Just wish I had bought the taller boots for all this snow. So I ordered them in the tall version, can wait for those to arrive. Never owned snow boots before and these did the trick. Love them. January 5, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little boot! I like how this boot fits, not bulky and flexes well when walking, good support, 'almost' like having a high-top runner on, more coverage though. As per the web site, it says it fits slightly small, so I went up a half size to a size nine. I have a more narrow fit so I like how it fits the width of my foot even with thick socks on. The boots keep my feet toasty warm too, I have worn a thin quarter sock as well as no show sock and my feet were completely warm when going outside for a walk. Best for running around town or shorter walks (less than an hour) since it is a shorter boot you will feel the cold wind on the legs unless you have a long coat or wear lined pants, long-johns, heavy sweatpants, etc. January 4, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by All purpose boot Very attractive. Can be worn casual or for dress. (Wore sparkly socks that went over the top.) Great traction. Easy to walk in. Kept me warm and dry. December 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love love love Very warm, and comfy for all day wear. I was surprised that these ran a whole size to small, I normally wear a 9 and had to exchange for a 10. I loved them so much that I bought in another color. December 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Features says it all This is so good. Keeps my feet warm on this very cold winter season. Not afraid to walk because of the "spike" on the sole. Would really recommend this product. Thank you Columbia! December 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great boots! I really like these boots. I ordered my true size (9) and also the 9.5. I can't wear thick socks with the 9, but the 9.5 is just too big in the ankle area. My feet stayed dry and fairly warm with thin socks. December 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these boots I would highly recommend these boots. December 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute, warm boot I just received these and they are very warm and comfy. They do squeak a bit on tile floors but I think that's because they're new. I would recommend sizing up by half a size if you'd like to wear thicker sizes. December 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lightweight boot I was looking for a reasonably priced, lightweight yet warm and waterproof boot. This boot fits teh bill perfectly. I sized up half a size and it's still just a touch more fitted than I would prefer, but not so small that I will exchange it. They are very light and not to high, so they won't make me feel claustrophobic (is it just me but boots can make me feel too confined??). The insoles easily remove and my orthotic insoles fit perfectly. it's a plus that they are cute too (for a winter boot). December 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love these boots They are light-weight but keep the cold and wet out. They fit nicely to the foot, and are easy to get on and off. I got 1/2 a size larger than I normally wear, and they are good, although they will be a bit snug if I have to wear extra-thick socks. November 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Love Them! I bought these last year at the Columbia outlet. My God, they are the best boots ever. They're exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something shoe-like, that I could wear both inside and out. Something waterproof with a tread on the bottom. These fit the bill perfectly. What I love is that they are flexible - there's a spring in the step; they're not stiff like all of my other boots. I can wear them all day at work and they feel like tennis shoes and then when I step outside into the snow they're waterproof. I'm almost tempted to buy another pair cause I'm afraid they'll get discontinued. Highly recommend! November 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not for wide feet This shoe is so cute that I've purchased it a couple of times over the last few years hoping it would work. I have a wide foot and this shoe just doesn't work for wide feet. It is narrow and holds tight to its shape. Would love for Columbia to offer more of their footwear is wide sizes. November 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Quality Its really warm. I like the color. July 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great comfort Cute in black! Very comfortable shoes that are non slip. I got half a size bigger to make sure it would fit with thick winter socks! April 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product has a good features. Not testify yet, because I bought the boot in March. March 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Walking shoe Took to NYC this winter and kept my feet warm during light snow and temps down to 20. I wore wool socks and fit was not snug since I bought 1 size up. Bought the black. The color looks a little washed out even when new but serves its purpose which is why only 4 stars cause it looks washed out. March 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great short boot Love it! I'm a 7 and ordered the 7.5 and it fits like a warm glove! February 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gate Attendant The only reason I put the fit runs small is because my shoe size runs 6 - 6 1/2 and I ordered a size 7. When I purchase boots, I always order a size bigger than I wear - mainly because boots are not put on like shoes - the top end of your foot has to have enough room to slid in at the heal of the boot when putting them on. Your foot does not bend. I have a huge collection of boots and have found this to be the instance in each purchase. These boots are warm, comfortable and waterproof just as advertised. I work outside during the winter -- these style boots are exactly what I needed. I also found that the higher the boots come up on your leg the warmer they keep your feet. February 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfy and warm Other than that they run a bit small (wish I had got 1/2 size bigger) they are warm and comfortable. Good grip on slippery surfaces. February 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Minx Shorty Omniheat Review I really like these boots! I'm currently in college at WVU and this winter has already been brutal, and I decided to order these just as a form of footwear to wear to class when it's icy out. So far, so great! The only thing is that I ordered an 8 since I usually wear a 7.5 and all the reviews said that they run small. But even ordering a half size up wasn't quite enough, they still are small but not too uncomfortably slow to send them back. I'm happy with my purchase! February 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very warm and comfortable I don't usually order shoes online because I need to try them on, but the price and the reviews was so good that I took a chance. I normally wear a size 7, but took the recommendation to order one size up and ordered a size 8 and am glad I did. I have neuropathy in my feet really bad and have a hard time finding comfortable shoes. These boots are very comfortable and very warm. I mainly wear them for cold, snowy weather. I love them. They are also stylish and look good on. They don't have that clunky snow boot feel and look. I don't think you would be disappointed with these boots. February 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice boots Very warm, even with regular socks. Comfortable. Run about half size smaller so you need to buy 1/2 size bigger. I wear 6.5 and bought 7. They fit without spacing. I like them. February 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm boots I love these boots, had to get some for Mom! February 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots They almost feel like i'm wearing runners but still warm and great grips. The sizing is a bit smaller than what I usually get, so I ordered a 1/2 size bigger and that was fine. February 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice boots I normally wear a 9.5-10 and I ordered a 10 in these... I could have gone to a 10.5 for sure, they do run small. Otherwise, I like them, very lightweight and comfortable. I will stretch the one that feels a bit snug! February 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's perfect I like it, it keeps my feet warm an easily waking February 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite winter footwear! I love these boots! They are incredibly comfortable and so warm. I had read reviews that said the boots ran small, so I ordered up. I wear a size 8 and ordered a size 9 and they fit perfectly! I highly recommend these as a comfortable, warm boot for everyday wear! February 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Boots! I bought these boots for commuting to work in the Boston area. I have a long walk from my train stop to work and these boots are perfect. Very comfortable and most especially, light weight. I particularly like how they grip the pavement so I am a little reassured that I will not slip and fall. Have not tested their waterproof feature yet. But so far, I'm thrilled! February 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect everyday boots These are perfect light weight everyday casual wear boots. I am 5'2" and the shaft height is perfect. I usually wear a size 8 and ordered a 9 which fits my wide (bunion) foot well. They are warm and comfortable for high desert mountain climate and the tread grips for safety in the ice. February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfy and light weight. I like these boots. They are light weight and perfect for travel. I have not tested the waterproofing so can't speak to that but they are warm. I found them to run a half size too small. February 4, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Boots Too Small Its hard to recommend a product that is too small to wear. Since I normally wear a size 8 1/2 shoe, I ordered a size 9 boot. I had one pair of thin socks on & they were just too small so I can't wear them. I was very disappointed because I thought I would love these boots. Instead of returning, (you no longer have my size), I am going to find some one I can give them to because I still think they are a great product. January 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thanks Took a 4 mile walk in the driving rain and when I returned my feet were the only part of me not wet. They are also very comfortable to walk in. January 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boot! I love these boots! They really keep the moisture away and feet stay warm. They are very comfortable too. Run about a half size small. I normally wear a 9, but ordered a 9.5 to accommodate thicker socks. They're just right with normal to slightly thicker socks. Couldn't fit a hearty wool sock in there, but you don't need the heavy socks anyway :) January 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this boot! I ordered these boots because I wanted something to be able to slip/put on quickly and take the dog out or run errands. I am normally closer to a 7.5 but went with the 8 and they fit great. They are fashionable, fit well, and are very comfortable! January 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm enough for Chicago winters! After trying a few brands of boots over the years, Uggs and Sorrels, I've finally found a pair I love! They are so easy to slip-on/off, lightweight, comfortable and warm enough to withstand the coldest days in Chicago. January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cozy Boots These boots are really comfortable. Since they arrived I'm wearing them almost everyday! They keep my feet warm even outside when the temps are below 30F!!! December 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall great product but... product was great! I just needed to go a half size up. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots Great boots, very comfortable and warm December 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute and comfy I live in Chicago and these short winter boots are easy to walk in and kept my foot warm. I originally ordered a 7.5 and that was too tight for any socks so I went up to an 8. I love them for quick errands or walking my dog on a cold morning. It was a good break from the tall winter boots that take so much effort to put on! Great find! December 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent boots very lightweight, comfortable and extremely warm even in really cold weather. Great winter hiking boots! Definitely my favourite pair! October 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Every winter day These boots are really comfortable and warm, but it doesn't have enough rough sole to walk when the snow is really deep (4 inches or more). May 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product. Ihave been searching for winterboots that is not Chunky. This boots is by far the most comfortable winter boots Ive tried. It is so light, waterproof and warm. Im usually a size 8 but i purchase the size 8.5 which fits very well. February 11, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not what I expected I have purchased Columbia products in the past and have always been satisfied, but this was one product that did not live up to the Columbia name. First I will begin with the pros of this product. When first trying these boots on in the store, I was sold by the comfort level. They did not feel cumbersome or clunky to walk in as some winter boots do. Rather, they had a cushiony feel to them. This comfort remained even as I wore them and worked in them throughout the day. Comfort is important, but I needed a boot that was going to keep me warm and dry. The tag on the boot said they were waterproof but I found this to be completely inaccurate. I spend a good part of my day going in and outside, but after only about 1/2 hour of being outside I found my feet would start to get wet. By the end of the day my feet were freezing (from being wet) and I could wring some water out of my socks. Even after adding an additional pair of socks my feet would end up wet. It was almost as if water was coming through the bottom of the boot. Now this is not from standing in or even walking through puddles. It was simply walking on mostly packed snow and some lighter snow. I think these boots definitely would have kept my feet warm if they had actually been waterproof as they claimed. These boots look great sitting in my closet, but they won't get much use as long as there is snow on the ground. Very disappointed. February 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This boot has great features! The fit of this boot is like having a running shoe on, which secures the foot instead of having a loose fit. It keeps your foot warm but not sweaty also dry, nice flat sole so there is no collecting of packed snow where the heel and snow meet. Another plus is ease of putting on, I have a ankle with major arthritis and I have no problem with pulling the boots on. The look is also nice pull your pant leg over them and they look great hardly like a bulky winter boot. This has been the best boot purchase I have ever made! February 5, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not excited about this product I ordered these boots because I really wanted to short pair of boots for winter. I've never had a pair of Columbia boots so I wasn't sure what to expect. Well, these boots didn't really live up to my expectations. First off, they aren't feminine at all. Seeing as I bought them primarily for winter I can get past that though. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't order them. I'd go with a different pair or maybe even a different brand altogether. The fit is okay. They aren't the most comfortable boots but are roomy enough to wear a thick pair of socks or even two pairs. I wore the boots once in the rain and they kept my feet warm and dry. But when I wore them in the snow I was disappointed. My feet got cold less than 10 minutes after stepping outside. The boots got soaked pretty quickly as I navigated the snowy Chicago weather. The snow and ice didn't penetrate the boot but you could tell that the boot was wet and my feet did get cold. I only had on one pair of athletic socks at the time so I'm guessing my feet will feel warmer if I wear a wool sock. January 4, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable for All Day Wear These boots are stylish and very comfortable. They seem to run small. I usually wear a size 7 but had to go up to a size 7.5. Not sure how warm they are in cold weather as the temperature hasn't gotten below 45 degrees so far this winter. But, I have found that if my feet are cold when I put the boots on, they stay cold all day. December 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is the best for this price. It is not as expensive as other brands that are known for their winter footwear, however it has as good quality if not better. These shoes are light-weight and very comfortable. After the endless search for the perfect winter shoes (looks and function), I found these. About size, they only run small if your size is a perfect fit. I got a 6 even though I normally wear a 6. Also, they look much cuter in person. All my friends said they've liked my shoes. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by comfy boots Love these boots. I use them all the time when i am running errands or out to do work with my goats and chickens. Warm and comfortable. easy to put on quickly. Good treads on the bottom. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm as toast! These boots are light and so very comfortable. They keep my feet nice and warm and I just love that! December 17, 2014
