Rated 4 out of 5 by Great lightweight boots Loving these boots. They keep my feet warm and dry without heavy socks. they definitely run a little small--I wear a size 8 in just about every shoe I buy, and bought an 8.5 based on other reviews I read. So glad I did! The 8.5s fit perfectly (might be a little snug if I wear really heavy socks). As for the color, they're not quite as tan as in the pictures, but they're not quite the olive green that I saw in some reviews. They're neutral enough for my everyday wear. March 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pretty good These are the warmest boots I have worn, though they come with a tag that says they're warm down to -20*F, which I couldn't agree with. Even in +20's, my feet go numb for a little while, though not as long as in other boots. However, I suffer from Raynauds so they'd keep the average person's toes warmer. They get a little too warm when I'm inside for any length of time. They are a little stiff but seem to be breaking in. I took out the insole because I was looking for a minimalist boot. Even with that extra space, if I'm wearing an average winter sock (some thickness), they're a little tight. I'm usually a 9 and got a size 9. My biggest complaint is that the suede is wearing off where I've worn them with snowshoes (even after the first outing). That's pretty disappointing for winter boots. I do find them very attractive and will probably purchase a taller boot next winter - there were none left when I ordered. These are definitely NOT good for more than a couple inches of snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing boots! I have been looking for a boot that wasn't too expensive but still had good quality. I absolutely love boots. It has been freezing in NY, but my feet remain super warm in these boots! They are also waterproof which is great, and don't look clunky on. They are okay in the ice but still a little slippery. Would definitely recommend! February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm & toasty feet!! I love these boots!! I have trouble with my feet and have a very hard time finding shoes/boots that I can wear. I took a chance by ordering these without knowing how they would fit/feel. They feel wonderful and I am able to wear them and they keep my feet extremely warm and toasty. They are light weight which I really like. They repel the snow very well!! I wore them to shovel snow for about an hour and my feet never got the tiniest bit cold! They are very comfortable and I don't feel like I am going to fall walking on icy surfaces. I am more than very well pleased with my boots!! Thank for a well made and satisfactory product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable walking boot Finally found a warm, comfortable walking boot. I have to walk 7 city blocks for work and like to keep a faster pace. Feet stayed warm and dry. Ordered 1/2 size larger so my toes won't touch the front with heavy socks. Slipped a little on slushy ice though. Great boot and would highly recommend. February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love These Boots So far so good. I purchased these boots for an upcoming trip to England. Previous reviews said they ran small but I took a chance and ordered my usual size. When I first put them on they were kind of snug but after wearing them around the house they stretched just enough. They are very cozy. February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute boot--and warm! This is a super cute boot. It is very warm and kept my feet nice and dry when I walked in the snow. Note that this is a short boot and wouldn't be high enough for really deep snow. These boots do run a little small. I bought the same size that I wear in athletic shoes (about a half size larger than my regular shoes), and that was perfect. My only quibble is that it could use more arch support. Otherwise this is a great little boot. February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps me toasty warm Love these boots! Keeps my feet dry and warm. I'm waiting for the tall verson to go on sale. So far in Rhode Island we have been slammed with snow storms. I would highly recomend these boots. February 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best buy of the winter for me! Reviewed the heck out of a ton of boots before choosing these. Already walked a mile in them today and they feel great. Great fit, warm and cute. Very comfortable. February 10, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by not bulky These boots are nice. They are a little big though because I ordered a half size up based on the reviews. They are loose but overall I like them. The color is more of a green than brown which I don't mind. They keep my feet warm but I wonder if they were the right size if they would keep my feet warmer. February 4, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Comfy but no grip on ice These boots are very comfortable but are NOT good on icy/slippery surfaces. Also, the heel feels lower than rest of boot so walking is a bit awkward. January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and Functional! These boots are amazing. I wear a size 7.5-8 so I ordered a size 8 in these boots and they were a perfect fit. The toe box and width is wider making it very comfortable (not a tight boot) and they are extremely lightweight at 10 ounces. I walk to work and bought these as well as the Omni Minx II (higher version). This boot has a leather/suede toe which makes it even warmer. Not only do I wear these to/from work on my 1.0 mile walk, but I wear them around the house because they are just as comfortable as slippers! The omni-heat technology is incredible and my feet have never been cold or wet in the Philly winters. January 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for!! Comfy, warm and waiting for our first measureable snow to put them to the test! January 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by True Warmth Thank goodness for honest reviews! You pay for what you want and In my case what I needed. I have been looking for a boot to keep my feet warm and dry. Living in Illinois that's a must. I love these boots so much that I ordered 2 pairs. If you have health issues that require you to stay warm and dry, this is the boot for you. I ordered a 1/2 size larger due to the reviews and I'm glad I did. This gives me room for thick socks. Without the thick sock, it would be a little big and give you a true fit to size. My toes aren't crunched together therefore I'm comfortable all day...even with the thick socks. I can't wait for the taller boot to go on sale so I can order them also. January 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Im in love with them Can't say something wrong love it!!! Perfect for winter in NY⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ January 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by my columbia's these boots feel so good to walk in, feels like cushioned air, and they are so warm, I highly recommend them, and I recommend a half size up I wear 7 but 7.5 fits very good. January 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very comfy and warm I like these but I was hoping they'd be a shorter version of the omni heat mid high boot. These have suede over the toes which make them a little stiffer and heavier. I love the softness and flexibility of the mid high boot. I'll keep these because they are cute, comfy and warm. But I prefer the other boots for running outdoors when the temps are close to freezing. January 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Practical Short version is more versatile for the south. December 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Toasty and comfortable Terrific boots! I love the Teal color. I wear a 6.5 usually, sometimes a 7 as my feet are a bit wide. I bought a 7 and they are absolutely perfect!. I'm wearing these in the house as my feet get cold... not this winter, however. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by shorty omni heat I was waiting for these kind of shoes for a long & grab it when the price was reduced.I was very excited when I recieved above boots its very comfortable,cosy,perfact fitting,lite & looks great. Don't miss opportunity in these season,grab it,you want repent. December 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable, Waterproof, and Cute My job requires me to be in and out of the office and on the road most days. I wanted something that would be waterproof, low profile, comfy, and appropriate for a classy casual office atmosphere. This boot fit the profile, with a few adjustments. I wear an 8 in most shoes, 8.5 in Brooks running shoes. I got the 8.5 to accommodate for bigger socks and I'm glad I did. Also had to replace the insoles with SuperFeet Premium insoles (the green ones) for more arch support. I would recommend, but if you can try them on in stores you can make sure they are the right fit. December 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Color issues This is a quality snow boot. The issue I had was that the true color of the boot is completely different from how it looks in these pictures. Pebble and oxford tan actually looks more green than brown, the boots are more like a dark olive green or Forrest green than brown. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My wife say........ I LOVE IT THIS BOOT AND WALK GOOD KEEP ME WARM thank you November 30, 2014
