Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes! These are my go to work shoes. They are waterproof and comfortable. Subtle style which I like. I've had them for a few seasons and they're still going strong. I will buy these again in a heartbeat but they no longer have this style. I'm waiting for a similar style (with low pro branding) to repurchase. However I can see myself wearing this pair for a while longer because as I said they are very well made and utilitarian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These shoes are very comforatable I bought theses shoes before a trip to Yellowstone and new york. They are very very comfortable. Only bad thing is on a cold day they are not warm because of the mesh but I didn;t expect cold weather. Great shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from N. GA certified Performed very well in North GA mountains during recent fly fishing trip. Even wore them wet fishing though not recommended on the rocks. Went through some nasty stuff and kept the feet dry until I went into the water fishing. Mud, water, did great on land. Read a lot of reviews and I'm a huge Columbia fan anyway; these bad boys exceed expectations!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shoe, not the most comfortable I just wore this shoe for a 2 week vacation in Ireland. I'd had the shoes for about a month before this trip. It held up well for all the walking I did, but one thing I noticed was the heel started to get very hard. Not a lot of support back there, so wouldn't recommend it for any kind of serious hiking. Works well for city walking and gentle trails. Also, get at least a half size lower than you normally do, if not a full size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoes I own I bought my first pair of these shoes 18 months ago and love them. I use them for occasional everyday wear but have found them excellent for traction and stability on steep slippery hikes. This shoe is very well made I hike 2-3x week on sharp rocky trails, boulder fields, muddy trails ( they even work well with micro-spikes) pretty much anything the local mountains can dish out. I estimate I have put over 1500km of rough trail mileage on them and the soles still have good traction. I am beginning to see the soles collapsing slightly and separating and they have stretched out a bit so I just bought a new pair of the same. I should also mention that I weigh aprox 250 lbs so these shoes have really impressed me. Similar shoes from other vendors often don't last more than 6-9 months . I find they fit my wide feet and larger ankles very well. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes This is my second pair of your water proof hikers and the comfort and durability is exceptional. I have used them hiking regularly in Colorado and also for walking the dogs year around in all weather. The new shoes have even better soles than my first pair. If you are looking for great light hiker I highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Shoe I am an Outdoor Guide, I splash through mud, walk on loose gravel up and down hills, and stand for hours at a time all day. These shoes were worth every penny, my feet are never sore, or wet as they are not only waterproof but breathable. I would recommend these shoes to any of my clients and would buy these again any day of the week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sensitivity of sole I've owned these shoes for several months. While they fit well, have excellent traction, have been wearing well I have one complaint. The trails I've been hiking in Arizona this winter have numererous rocks of varying sizes. The soles on my shoes I've found are too sensitive to these these type of trails. Outside of this comment they're one of the more comfortable hiking shoes Iv've owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Put them on and used the whole day, both inside and outside. Wonderful feelings, my feet felt themselves very comfortable, neither too warm, nor hot, although it was 30's outside and 70's inside. Still need to test them in rainy weather and under snow but so far so good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Really Really great shoes! These have been my Go-to shoes for multiple months now. I have really put them through the ringer! The size is great. They come up to the ankle without going over. They are durable! They are advertised as waterproof/water-resistant. I have had them wet a few times and I always got water inside. Granted, I didn't just splash my foot in a creek; I had my foot mostly submerged. I would defiantly buy the shoe for the comfort and durability, not if you are looking for a shoe you can go fly fishing in or something involving too much water. The only issue (completely trivial) I have is that the shoe-strings come untied all the time. Other than that, I have been exceptionally pleased with the quality and workmanship of this shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best waterproof shoes I've owned. The Men’s Peakfreak XCRSN XCEL Outdry is very well made. They are durable, comfortable, breathable, have a good grip in wet weather and are truly water proof unlike other brands with similar shoes. I will buy these shoes again in the future. They are worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME SHOE This is my first pair of Columbia shoes and I am very very pleased. I was a little bit hesitant buying the shoes online because in some shoes I wear a 9 and some shoes I wear a 9.5. I went with a 9.5 and they are a perfect fit. Gosh they are comfortable. great look, great feel and outdry material to beat! I live in the Pacific NW where it rains the majority of the winter and that was a primary reason I decided to purchase these shoes. as soon as i got them and wore them I ordered (20 different pais of Columbia shoes. In my eyes repeat business and purchase is what tells the really story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! These are beautiful shoes, I'm in 11 1/2 foot and they fit perfectly, not too tight nor too big, just right. On top of being a very comfortable light shoe they keep your feet nice and dry on those very wet days. And also, they let you feet breath quite nicely. They keep the water out and keep the water from forming on the inside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I hoped I've had these for 3 months now. They are super comfortable, very supportive. The don't aggravate my plantar fasciitis even when I wear them for 18 to 20 hours of standing and walking. I'm very picky about shoes and fit and I couldn't be happier. And they're waterproof (although I haven't had the opportunity to thoroughly test that). It just gets better...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as Snug as others This shoe was one of two I ordered at the same time....where fit on the other shoe was ridiculously inaccurate this one was not as bad. Only had to return shoe for one half size bigger than the half size bigger than normal of all my other shoes (one full size bigger in all). The shoe looks good and works well. The shipping on the returns and replacements is a bad deal and needs to be addressed by Columbia. The practice of shipping sizes that are truly inaccurate is poor. The shoe itself and the Columbia product line is great and I love the products....so I put up with the issues related to size and use my best guess on sizing.....sometimes I am spot on and sometimes I am way off....it all depends on the product. Again, love the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all around shoe Was a bit put off by the sizing, feels somewhere between 1/4 to 1/2 size too large. If I were to wear a lightly padded hiking sock it would be a perfect fit but as I got these for warm weather hikes and street shoes they're roomy with a basic sock. That being said, I have learned to love them! I used them on technical steep hike/scramble and they were great... comfortable, breathable and excellent traction. Curious about the waterproofability, I put my hand inside and ran them under the house faucet at full pressure... not a hint of moisture inside, amazing! I've grown so fond of them that I wore them exclusive on a 3 week trip trough Europe where I was comfortably walking in them 8-10 miles a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heck Yeah! Just got back from a 2+ week trip, day hiking in Alaska. 14 of our 18 day trip included rain. I wore these shoes daily and felt obligated to write a review. In a nutshell, the only item on my entire person that stayed completely dry were my feet. Would highly recommend. For those reading, I am a female.....the mens shoe provides a slightly wider toe box than the womens version of this shoe and is perfect for a heavier weight sock. Loved Loved them!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Hiker For years I have hiked in Nike Trail Runners with the air soles. I tell you this so you have some basis for my comments are on this shoe. Recently it seems Nike has focused more on the run than the trail part of their shoe. It used to be the reverse. After hiking in those for a while, I decide it was time to try another brand, so I bought these Columbia shoes. I did my first six mile hike in these today and here are my comments. First. A hiking shoe has to be comfortable and fit well. Who wants to be dealing with hotspots on your feet during a hike? These fit very well and were comfortable. Second. Traction is a big deal for me. I want a shoe that I can count on not slipping. This shoe excelled in this area. Where I hike, it is combination of mud, loose sand/gravel, dirt, rock, etc... My last pair of Nike's I just couldn't rely on always giving me a reliable grip. If it was a little wet, sandy, etc... I had to be careful. Today I was out hiking in all the above. The shoes traction was fantastic. The only time the shoes slipped was in mud and I mean the heavy variety. I would not expect a shoe to hold in the mud I was in today. Solid sole. In the previous Nike's, the sole was thin enough that certain rocks and such that I stepped on, I would feel it in my feet. In these, I did not feel anything. Another positive. A couple of my negatives (and they are minor but thought in the spirit of objectivity I'd throw them out there). The shoes were a bit stiff in the upper. For most of the hike today the trail was a little uneven. The uphill side tended to stay on my right. I noticed about half way through the hike that my ankle bone was feeling the upper cushioning of the shoe pushing into it. Wasn't enough to be sore, but was enough to notice. LIke I said, not a big deal. The toe box was a little weird. I think it is due to the reinforcements. It did not seem to impact the fit of the shoe, but I noticed on my left shoe, when i was transitioning from that leg being back to that leg coming forward, it would make a noise. Not annoying, but I did hear it pretty much my whole hike. By the end of the hike, I could tell the soles were a little harder than what I was used to. I would expect this since I was used to the Nike air sole. Again, did not put pain in my feet in any way, but I did notice my feet feel it a little bit. There were a couple minor puddles today. My feet stayed dry, although the puddles didn't really test them either. So for now I'll say the Outdry is working... One last thing. Many reviews say the run small. I found just the opposite (it seems Columbia shoe sizing is a bit all over the map). Back to the Nikes (I have worn a boatload of Nikes, not just their trail runners), but I can pretty much count on a 10 fitting me. On a rare occasion I will have to get a 9.5. With Columbia's it seems it really varies shoe by shoe. This winter I ordered a pair of Columbia winter slipon boots. In those the 10.5 fit me best. When I was considering these shoes, I also was considering the North Plains model. In the North Plains, the best fit for me was a 10. But with these Peak Freaks, the best fit was a 9.5. So if you are ordering online, I'd recommend ordering more than one size and then returning whichever one does not fit. Overall, these are much better shoes than my last pair of Nike trail runners. Are they better than the Nike ones from a few years back. Not sure I would say that, but they are very close. This is a really good hiking shoe. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe This shoe fits great and is very comfortable. I received them in the mail and immediately went on a 2 mile hike. They were comfortable right out of the box. They are completely waterproof, and they breathe great. I'm a big fan of the Outdry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great outdoor shoe! I am on the Search and Rescue and bought these as my all around shoe to wear on most call outs, and this shoe has been exceptional! Grip on them are awsome! I have to go through mud, and streams and there has not been any water that has leaked in (as long as you don't submerge it above the ankle and let it in that way) they are a great water proof shoes! I would recommend getting what size you really are in the shoe. I bought a half size bigger, as I feel like most hiking shoes run a little small, but they are a little to big, but can just wear a thicker sock and be fine. I will be getting another couple pair to have in the right size. I would highly recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy This Shoe First, let me get the one negative out of the way: very little arch support. Now on the the good stuff... I bought this shoe online, without ever trying it on at a brick and mortar store, based upon the previous reviews. I must let you know that I am a professional who works in the backcountry and playing out there too so I know what I'm talking about. I was a bit skeptical about purchasing this shoe as I have come to rely on the other major brand names in the past but figured I'd give Columbia a chance to shine or fade. They shine. I took the shoes out for their maiden voyage on a 15 mile hike to enjoy the fall colors in the wilderness with my friends. Mud puddles, creek crossings, dust, and slick rock were encountered on the journey and my feet were dry, the shoes maintained excellent grip, and my confidence in the shoes increased within the first mile! Upon the return trip to the trailhead, we had a long and steep decent into a canyon bottom and I was hoping that my toes wouldn't jam into the toe box, another critical selling point of a quality shoe; it passed the test, although I'll re-lace the shoes to minimize the movement of my feet within the shoe. Over all, I'd rate the shoe as a solid A- and I'll buy again. I would consider buying an insert if you typically require arch support. Happy Trails, y'all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peakfreak shoe Columbia has never let me down with their products and this is no exception. The only issue I have is the width-my foot runs a little wider than normal and I did not have a wider width option. Other than that, it is like having claws on my feet when on the trails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to shoe! I bought these shoes because i'm constantly hiking to hard to reach area's of Lake Erie tributaries to get to the best fishing spots which mean trudging through some very uneven, steep, and wet terrain. After i got these shoes i put them through the paces and oh buddy was i impressed!!! They not only handled every bit of ground i threw at them but my feet were thanking me every step because these shoe are so comfortable and offer great support. i will probably end up buying 2 or 3 more pairs because i enjoy these so much and are made so well that by the time they wear out and its time for a new pair they might be discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than Enduro These are even better than the Enduro, which I also have, because the uppers are normal thickness like regular shoes. I love the laces, the cylindrical shape allows them to glide through the eyelets, unlike the Enduro which has flat laces and don't seem to be made for their own eyelets, and these laces are very strong. Great for walking in and the black/grey color is sleek and subtle and looks great with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shoes, survived CO 14ers I picked these shoes up a week before a hiking trip in SW Colorado. Being my first pair of Columbia shoes, and first pair of shoes without a certain brand name sole that I've hiked thousands of miles in with various shoes and boots, I was a bit worried, but I figured I'd try them anyway. To break them in, I only had time for a quick 8 mile, 2000' gain hike nearby. After coming back, I knew these shoes were going be great. The next week I took them to the San Juan mountains and hiked over 30 hours and 5 14ers in 3 days. They held their comfort and support better than I could have imagined. The biggest test was 8 miles of talus and scree up Kilpacker Basin. Steep terrain and sharp rocks were nothing for the soles of these trail shoes. They even stayed dry through afternoon snowfields and several minor slips over stream crossings. I was amazed. They were comfortable enough to wear around town afterwards for a few days. Highly highly recommended!!
