Good shoes for Nurses
Ordered the purple ones, loved the color, the fit. Runs true to size. They are so lightweight and so comfortable. My feet do not get hot and smelly after working and being on my feet for 8 hours plus as a nurse. And as if that's not enough, I love the lace system, makes it so very easy to get shoes on and off.

Walked Peru in these shoes
The shudder to think how many miles I walked in these shoes. Bought them for the ease of wearing and the weight since I was backpacking Peru for three months. They performed unfailing in water, on rough trails and streets. Fit and comfort is great. My feet never got hot and were kept warm (with heavy socks) The material ripped at the toe and sides a bit and are getting bigger. Would have been better if the rubber toe guard was higher up. One of the pulls on the lace broke off and the loop on the back of my right shoe is starting to come loose. I will buy another pair for my trip to Chile next year.

Shoe Material Didnt Last Long
The idea and look of this shoe is definitely appealing. Being a whitewater raft guide I am constantly looking for a great water shoe and the idea of going from the land to the water would be an amazing product however I felt this shoe was lacking in the long run. At first the shoe was comfortable and functional. The shoe drains well and dries semi fast which is something important to me. Sadly, I have had my shoes for 4 months and they have fallen apart. The mesh on the outside is torn all along the outside and front toes. The laces always seem to be a good idea but I have found out in this shoe and other shoes that after repeatedly pulling them tight then getting them wet they tend to stretch out to where they can longer be tightened enough to stay on. I know that I may run these shoes through the ringer more than the average customer but I do feel that a brand like Columbia would be able to produce a product that even a working outdoors woman like myself would be able to wear time and again and it hold up.

This is a very comfortable, lightweight shoe, great grip with wet surfaces. I think it runs a little wide but length is normal. I have had an issue with the end of the toggle, it came off after a week and will not stay on so it looks a little strange. That being said I do love this shoe but I do wish the toggle functioned better than it did.

Comfortable and Versatile
My feet are picky due to having Morton's toe (poor Morton). I need width space for my princess toes - and orthotics. I ordered a half size larger.
These shoes allow perfect space and comfort. They have been weather challenged and hold up well in wet situations. I love the ease of wear too.
My feet thank you, Columbia!

Long Days on the boat
We spensd long hours on the boat fly fishing in the saltwater, so we are on our feet. After wearing a number of other brands we tried the Columbia Power Drain series and what a difference. Great shoe, all day confort very grippy.
We wear Columbia gear almost daily.

Excellent every day shoes
I recently strained the plantar fascia in my left foot and was told by my doctor that I needed to start wearing tennis shoes every day. As a female young professional I was heart broken that I wouldn't be able to wear my normal cute shoes to work. I bungeed-up my magenta PowerDrains and walked to work, feeling so much relief in my foot.
After a week of exhausting every magenta shirt I owned, I decided to purchase the dark grey pair of the PowerDrains and now my wardrobe opportunities are endless.
While I am not a typical user of these shoes (running through the rainforest tracking almost-extinct animals to study, PowerDrains cooling my feet and keeping them dry), I believe these shoes are amazing for every day use and to help out with people who have feet issues and need a little extra support. Also, I have wide feet and even though these shoes don't come in an official wide size, they feet great on my feet and aren't constricting.
Thanks, Columbia, for getting me back on my feet :)

Good gift item.
Gift item for both wife and daughter. They liked the comfortable fit and look. They have not had them long enough to know if they live up to the technical claims yet.

comfortable shoe but as far as omnifreeze zero?
The shoe is a very comfortable shoe for walking. But as for the omnifreeze zero function, I can't tell the difference after a walk in these shoes and my other walking shoes without this feature.

No just a water shoe
I have worn these hiking in a damp cave, in Florida summer downpours, and in 100+ degree heat hiking in the desert. In all cases the shoes had great traction and my feet stayed comfortable. It will get wet inside--but my feet did not feel wet--and dried quickly. I hate wearing athletic shoes in the summer because my feet get hot. I wore these for hiking for 2 weeks all over the Southwest (in this years heat spell) and my feet never felt hot. So amazing I bought additional pairs.
I have a small but fat foot and was concerned as these are not made in a wide. No problem, the footbed was wide enough for all day comfort, and the no tie laces made for easy on & offs.

The Drainage is AWESOME!
I purchased these shoes because I am walking in the Michigan 3Day and rain is a possibility. I want "dry" feet if I'm walking 20 miles a day. During my training I have walked in the down pouring rain and my feet feel great. My training partner however has regular walking shoes and her feet were soaking wet, shoes were double the weight with the water and was just out right uncomfortable. Because of the drainage feature these shoes are not like "walking on a pillow" like the regular walking shoe but they are comfortable, light weight and breathable. I don't don't run so I'm not sure about these being great running shoes but for walking paths and trails they are GREAT!
I have very narrow ankles and they are very roomy for my feet. I feel that they run a little big BUT because I am walking 20 miles a day the extra room for swollen feet is a good thing :)

As comfortable as a slipper
The minute I put this shoe on I knew I would be ordering one in every color. Love It ! Very comfortable, can walk all day and night in them. I also recieve compliments on them every time I wear them. True fit in my opinion.

Great everyday shoes
I love these shoes. It is very lightweight, easy to slip-on, and very comfortable. It felt very true to size as well. My only complaint is that it looks like it is starting to tear around the part where the mesh layer meets the midsole. I've had these shoes for less than 2 months, and I've wear them a good number of times walking/hiking outdoors.

These shoes are so lightweight and comfortable to walk in.
I love the fact that I can walk without feeling that I'm lifting weights with my feet. The toe box is so comfortable and this is a feature that I find extremely hard to find in shoes. My feet don't feel "all sweaty" when walking in the heat.

This water shoe is very comfortable I usually need a higher support shoe and was pleasantly surprised at how well this shoe fit. I have taken it hiking and it made for a great boat shoe. My feet never got to hot thanks to the cooling technology.

I love these shoes!! They are true to fit, light-weight, cute as heck!!!

Comfortable from the first wearing (which consisted of a 2-mi charity walk and then an evening out) and durable. May have to buy a 2nd pair!

A tournament angler must!
I fish salt water tournaments on a regular basis, my feet need to be as dry as they can get, as soon as they can get. I also need the support for some preexisting foot issues and protection while wading or on the deck. I actually broke these shoes in during a king fish tournament (slimy deck, lots of hooks, fast action and hopefully lots of teeth) and they were perfect! The grip was the best I have found and after 20 hours in the shoes (which got soaked the first hour I had them on) my feet had no pruning and I had no foot pain. They even proved to be lucky since we were on the winner board that day!

Good shoe for knocking around town, light, attractive and offers some support. Would not use for walking long distances. Overall, happy with shoe. True to size.

Hard to find size, good toe room height and length. Arch is okay, but could be slightly higher for me. Laces tighten to give a looser or tighter fit.

Wow, GREAT shoe!
I've never written a shoe review but this shoe is so awesome I just had to! Not only are they really comfortable to wear all day since they're so light and amazingly cushioned for how minimal they feel but they also look great (I have the intense violet)! I've gotten so many compliments on them from complete strangers stopping me on the street to ask who they are made by. Great arch support and my narrow foot fits great because I can cinch it up tight. I've gotten them wet walking in rain puddles and thought I'd be sloshing around the rest of the day and soon enough they were totally dry. I might get another pair I love them so much!
