Women's Northbend™ Shoe
A good shoe
I was looking for a shoe to replace my aging Trail Meister shoes that I bought about 4 years ago (and still in service). The Trail Meister was the most comfortable shoe I have bought in decades.
I bought the Northbend because it appeard to be the closest shoes to the TM, in the Columbia current line-up. When I got it I was disappointed because the sizing was not the same, when I wore it out in the hills, going downhill my toes would touch the toe of the shoe. Not much, but some. The width was fine, but the shoe just doesn't have that hefty rugged trail shoe look. It looks like Columbia decided to make it look more like a city shoe.
I do recommend this shoe, it still beats another brand that cost me a bundle and I hate wearing (I save them for the barn). One thing that drives me nuts is shoes that look like elf shoes at the toe. Toes sit naturally flat and bend as we walk...shoes should do the same.

Just what I wanted
These hiking shoes arrived within 48 hours from the time I ordered them. They fit perfectly and did not cause any blisters or problems throughout my first hike in them. They have fantastic tread and are very, very comfortable...just what I wanted! Go Columbia!

I am new to hiking and didn't want to spend too much. The shoes arrived quickly, fit perfectly, comfortable , and required no break in at all. Work great on my hikes, no slips trips or falls! Will definitely buy from Columbia when I am ready to upgrade.

Lightweight, yet durable
These shoes are very lightweight, but still tough & durable. Good grippy soles kept traction on wet rocks in a stream and no break in time at all. First time wearing them I hiked 6 miles and they never rubbed once. I love Columbia footwear!
