Men's Fairbanks™ Omni-Heat™ Boot is rated out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SPCoach from Great boot! This is the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. I have rheumatoid arthritis, and my feet constantly hurt. I stand all day teaching, and these worked perfectly. No need to wear thick socks until it gets really cold though, as they are very warm. I would definitely purchase another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheNorthFaceGirl from Hubby loves these, and he's normally hard to buy for Perfect fit and feel and comfort right out of the box. These are gonna be great come winter. Very lightweight. The tread seems enough for the U.K. sidewalks in December. I have three pairs of Columbia Omni heat boots (female, don't judge) and they make me feel like my feet are on fire, which is what I want when I am freezing. Husband always has cold feet, so I am looking forward to him trying these out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiscGolfWidow from Great Shoe These are very light weight and comfortable. They feel like they are already broken in right out of the box. Don't have to wear for awhile to break them in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NotSoMuchSatisfied from NOT WATERPROOF I really liked these boots until the snow started melting. Stepping in a bit of slush or shallow puddles will result in any moisture leaking thru the fabric and getting your socks wet. I own normal non-water proof runners that are more water resistant than the fairbanks. Maybe only the heal portion that is stamped "WATERPROOF" is actually water proof. Or maybe columbia products just suck....

Rated 4 out of 5 by chewi from Daily wear for over 2 months in the Ontario winter. Love it! Pros: Fits perfect. Keeps dry both snow and rain, have yet to try in any puddle that's over 2 inches deep! Very comfortable, flexible and lightweight. Grips well and no slipping on TTC tiles. Looks GREAT. Love the olives green color. Easy to lace up. Very quiet boots, like a ninja! Did I mention it is a handsome pair of boots? Cons: Back tongue that helps to pull the boot up should be a loop rather than just a tongue. Slippy on ice. Kind of pricey Did not add extra warmth with the reflective membrane, but a pair of Smartwool or thick socks help solve that minor problem. Very happy with this pair of handsome boots!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nicknamecopycat from Watertight Like a Submarine Screen Door As a Delivery Driver in Toronto, I decided I'd buy a real pair of Urban Winter Boots from reputable brand Columbia to keep my feet warm and dry during those 9-12 hour days outside in the cold and snow. It says "Waterproof" on the heel and online product features list, but for some reason I find my feet wet even early on in the day with little snow. Bottom line is that as soon as I get home I gotta take off my wet socks and put the shoes over the heater to dry for the next day. And no, my feet don't sweat like this. Comfortable as a sneaker, but I already have comfortable sneakers that aren't waterproof that I could wear. Why spend the extra money? Expected more from Columbia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 9runner from Not warm at all at -20C These shoes were not warm enough as I expected them to be. I tried them on when it was -20C during the 2017 Holidays, and my toes were really cold. I tried just a couple of times the shoes to give them a chance, but they were not warm enough as advertised down to -32C. I want to return them as I really want shoes that will provide warmth in extreme cold. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MS60 from Fairbanks OmniHeat boot, NICE!!! These are great boots! REALLY comfortable right out of the box. And WARM, boy they keep my feet toasty, but don't cause them to sweat. Sole gives great traction in wintry conditions, and although they are more of a casual style, they are sharp enough looking to wear with khakis or slacks out to dinner, or a business meeting or lunch. Can't go wrong with these, thanks Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JaySmooth from Really nice winter boots These are by far some of the best winter boots I’ve ever owned. Extremely lightweight, doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing a boot but more like a hi-top shoe, very warm in cold temps, and grips amazingly well on snowy/ icy surfaces. These run a little small though. Bought an 11.5US when normally I wear a 10.5US. Not a big deal though. The one and only thing I don’t favour about these boots are the heel pull tab on the back of the boot which is somewhat useless. They should of put a loop in its place to better serve it’s intended use. Other than that these boots are definitely a good choice for anyone seeking an everyday winter footwear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SWPAMike from Exactly what I wanted, light cooler weather boot I was in search of, for lack of a better term, a sneaker for the snow. This boot is exactly that. Lightweight, flexible and seriously comfortable. I was in 30 degree temps for 4 hours Sunday and my feet were quite comfortable. Good grip in the snow (albeit we had only 4"). I walk my dog twice a day, every day, regardless of weather. These are the new preferred boot for our sojourns November through March. Good looking to boot! I have been happy with all the Columbia gear I own. These boots raise the happiness quotient to a whole new level. Well played.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fencer007 from Warm as advertised This is my first time using a boot product like this that has the Omni-Heat technology. I was intrigued to try it since I have a Columbia jacket with the Omni-Heat lining and I love that jacket. It is surprisingly light for a boot but it does not skimp on the protection from the elements. It has very comfortable padding and the Omni-Heat lining really keeps out the cold. I usually wear wool socks but with this boot, I can use regular socks. Boot grip is extraordinary and I can't wait to try it out on icy surfaces. I bought the Deep Rust, Whale variant. It is very stylish for a boot and looks a lot better than the usual black and brown ones I own. The boot tends to run a little small so I went a half a size larger. I usually get 10 for a boot and with this I bought a 10.5. It was well worth the purchase !! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lbeau from Looks much nicer in person !! If you think it looks great on the pictures, It looks even better in real life ! When I first got them, they were a bit stiff on the toe crease when walking, but after about a solid week of walking in them outside, it went away. not uncommon for winter boots. So far it's been 2 weeks, and I'm glad I purchased these, I previously had some clunkers for winter boots that lasted 7 years, I'm hoping to any great 7 years to come with these very comfy slim lined winter boots. They feel just like wearing cosy shoes, but with the extra warmth. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by theGalacticspaceboy from If you like shoes..... These super light hybrid boots (I guess you could say) are really more like shoes. Get the proper size and the heat won't go anywhere. I would call these Boots true to size but I bought a half size bigger than usual and they got perfectly. I can't speak to waterproofing as I will only wear in dry winter days. If a very light form fitted boot is your thing, then these are them. I bought the RUST color. Beautiful (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by walofvancouver from Excellent Boots Dec 11, 2017: first snowfall of the year, first opportunity to wear my new boots - Fit is perfect and snug. - Very warm, almost too much - 100% waterproof at this point, I applied some additional water repellent to the exterior and it keeps the boot pretty clean. - Grip of the sole is amazing. Very grippy on the typically slippery tiles of TTC stations. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Robbie111 from Not bad, purchased size 11 Black These shoes are warm, but they would be warmer if the fit wasn't so snug. Order a half size larger, unless you have narrower than average feet. If I have to be honest, the shoes aren't as aesthetically pleasing as the pictures would have you think. This is mainly a result of the black plastic material that makes up the bulk of the outer shoe. Overall, I am pleased. edit: not sure why it says I am an incentivized review, I purchased these and did not receive a sample. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Coldfeet247 from Warm Boots Ok... So I was looking for a warm pair of boots without the bulky ness. I found them. My feet are always cold especially since I spend a lot of time in an ice hockey rink with my son. Ive only had this pair of boots for a couple weeks and it hasn't been really cold as of yet but so far my feet haven't been cold what so ever. Im shocked how nice these boots are and in fact I just ordered another pair in a larger size because they do run a little small and are a little tight when wearing a heavier set of socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GroLog1291 from Hot Feet! Great looking boots that are comfortable...the only complaint I have is they are sometimes too warm. I tend to have sweaty feet and these bad boys will make them heat up like crazy. Already tried them in the cold weather though and it was very comfortable. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lackluster from Great Comfort I have already worn the boots many times and they have enough flex and cushion that I had no problem wearing them all day at work. I have not worn them in cold conditions yet, but I have no doubt they will keep me warm. At the same time, my feet did not over-heat on a warm day. Great product, great value - happy customer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by realreview from My $100.00 gift card review I was tired of either wearing running sneakers in the winter and having my feet frozen or wearing clunky leather boots that are heavy that can be uncomfortable. It usually takes me 3 months of searching, ordering and returning something to find the right one but as soon as I seen these I just had that feeling that this was exactly what I am looking for with the sneaker look and insulation to keep my feet warm but also the technology to keep them dry... Granted it is the middle of summer but I know these will be my go to shoes at least 5 days a week depending on the temperature. I purchased the army looking boots and they are very stylish and modern looking. Will look awesome with jeans - I do not work for Columbia or some marketing team to boost ratings - I am a real person with serious expectations for these boots. I did not give them 5 starts because I am only reviewing this based on the look, feel and trying them on in the summer. But overall I would definitely recommend them if you are looking for what I was trying to accomplish. Also my feet are a little wide and these fit well - if you have Flintstone feet i would definitely still consider trying them.. Happy hunting my friends.
