Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice look, good feel, but I didn't keep them I liked the look and feel of these shoes and they probably are great for general hiking, but I was looking for an obstacle course racing shoe. I was worried about the leather part of this shoe holding up to the repetitive wet/dry cycles. I exchanged these for Columbia's granite pass shoes, which have served me well for OCR.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some good, some not so much Shoes are certainly blue. Well-built, laces stay tied (yay!), but cushioning is poor. Also advertised as lightweight but they are not. They look and feel rugged, hopefully that is the case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How much does this shoe weigh ? They are not “Light” I currently own 2 pairs of Columbia peakfreak venture waterproof shoes. They weigh 14.4 ounces. I just bought and received the Peakfreak Venture LIGHT shoe. And, these shoes appear to weigh the same as my other shoes. I was hoping these shoes would be significantly and noticeably lighter in weight. They are not. And, no where in Columbia’s marketing and product information material can I find a weight for these shoes. So.... don’t call these shoes LIGHT or lightweight performance shoes when they weigh the same as your other Peakfreak Waterproof Shoes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big dude, fantastic shoes for regular and hiking use I've owned multiple boots and hiking shoes over the years. Wearing a size 16, it's hard to find both affordable but also high quality footwear. My original Columbia boots didn't last as long as I had hoped, but upon contacting Columbia they made it right. I replaced them with these and couldn't be happier. They're extremely comfortable, my feet don't hurt at all even if I'm on them all day. They grip extremely well and breathe. They're also super light weight. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peakfreak Venture Very happy with the shoes, just a little disappointed with the latest store experience. I had recently purchased several shoes and a jacket at a Portland Columbia store. At the time, the store was packed with all kinds of items. When I went last time to get another pair of shoes, the store had very little inventory of anything. The shoes I actually went to purchase were no longer available. I was interested in 3 different other shoes and when I went to try them on, they hardly had any sizes available. I prefer purchasing and taking the product from the store but was forced into an online purchase that took much longer to use the product.
