Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the BugaBoot I have always love the BugaBoot. These don't disappoint. They are modern and stylish but serve a great purpose of keeping your feet dry from the rain. I love them. They are also true to size. Don't stop making the BugaBoots - these are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The boot fits! I love that you offer this boot in a size 12. It is hard to find shoes or boots for a woman with a good foundation. When you say size 12 you mean a size 12. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No wonder this is always in the list of top winter boots of all time I just received my pair of Bugaboots now and I am already writing a review about it. I am a size 8.5, but I ordered a 9 just because I have wide feet and a bunion on my right foot. When I tried them on they were very comfortable and warm. Spacious enough for my weird-shaped feet (I put on a pair of wool socks too just to make sure they fit well). I live in the Midwest so I don't really need a superwarm pair of footwear, but I am pretty sure these boots are warm enough for a normal winter hike. They also look very stylish and sturdy. And for only $65, this is truly a steal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! I haven't broken into them yet, so they're still a little stiff, but they seem very high quality. I used the measuring sheet to get my size, but I think the shoes tend to run a bit smaller than what is shown on the sheet. I put on big socks and measured my size, then added a few millimeters to be safe, and got size 8.5 shoes according to the sheet. I haven't worn 8.5s in years, so I went with a 9. Good thing too, because these 9s are the right size, if a little more snug than anticipated. Other than that, the boots are perfect! Very sturdy, and definitely waterproof. They'll be perfect for the weather I'm expecting up north.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Small I purchased these boots to replace a pair that was 10 years old. The quality is great, but the sizing has changed significantly on the Bugaboot. They are narrow in the toes and smaller than the previous sizing. The 10 in women's I had before was way too small. I d fed up needing a 10 in men's...bigger than my husband's old pair of Bugaboots. Huge sizing issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Boots I bought these boots to replace ones I've had for about 8 years which I loved. The new ones are a little higher which makes them a bit less comfortable and I preferred the leather tops of the old ones. But other than that they're still a great boot and keep my feet warm--at least down to -20C. I find them comfortable for walking and snowshoeing and they're not clunky looking like some winter boots can be. I usually take size 8 but the 9 is what fits for this boot with heavy socks.
Date published: 2017-02-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boots! The backing is just a little too tall but I am also short legged so it makes my calf/shin a little sore if I'm needing to bend frequently. Ankle is also a little tight for thick socks and putting pant legs in to keep dry. Otherwise my feet are warm and dry!
Date published: 2017-02-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great winter boots I bought these boots to wear with snowshoes for winter forestry work, and until now they have done the job nicely. I love that they fit like a hiking boot and are still comfortable after a full day of walking. They are perfectly waterproof, if worn with gaiters or snow pants, and are surprisingly light! I would recommend buying a half size or size up if you plan to wear thick socks in them though, as mine are true to size with a thinner sock. Also, these are definitely not warm down to -32. On a -20 day, my feet were already a little cold while walking quite fast, but after fifteen minutes of not moving I couldn't feel my feet anymore -- I wouldn't recommend these for extreme cold weather.
Date published: 2017-01-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots These boots are great. They are very warm, stay dry and have been great in the snow. My only criticism is that they would be better 1" lower on the calf but that's a personal preference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs large This was to replace a much older version and unfortunately the size 5 (which is the smallest they have) is waayyy to big. The foot width and length, as well as the ankle support was too loose. The kids version did not have the ankle and calf lacing option for better support. Going to wait for next years version and hope it runs much smaller...
Date published: 2017-01-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hurt The Omni Boots keep my feet warm and fit properly. Unfortunately, the boots at the ankle is hard and hurts the ankle from the pressure against this area. I have never had this happen before and so, I am dissappointed. It impededs on my ability to walk comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots For Everyday Wear I bought these boots last winter because I was tired of having cold, wet feet while walking to and from class on campus. I live in northern Ohio where we often get more than a foot of snow and the temperatures frequently fall below zero. While on campus, I walk about 5 miles outside each day. Even after being outside for much of the day, my feet are always completely dry despite the fact that the sidewalks are often not completely plowed. I also wanted new boots that had good traction. These have good traction for everyday wear. When it comes to comfort, I personally find them very comfortable for a winter boot. They aren't terribly bulky or heavy, yet give you a feeling of sturdiness. I also like how easy they are to put on and take off. The only minor complaint I have is that they aren't extremely warm. However, I don't really mind this because they warm up quickly when I walk inside. Also, I have Raynaud's so my feet are naturally more susceptible to the cold. I'm sure someone without Raynaud's wouldn't have an issue with the warmth. Overall, I have been extremely pleased with these boots and I have never regretted buying them. I think they are great for daily use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't compare to older model I owned a pair of the women's "Titanium Ice Crushette" boots for years... I don't recall the year they came out but I would guess 6-8 years ago and when they finally broke away from the sole I replaced them with these...I would have bought the Titanium model they offer today, however I hate the colour red and that was the deal breaker. To say I'm disappointed with these boots is an understatement. They are not nearly as warm as they use to make them, there's not much give or cushion to them so they are uncomfortable against your ankles. They are very firm making walking any distance uncomfortable. I use them basically for shoveling the driveway and that's it because they are too uncomfortable to wear much longer. I'm sad to say that I will likely replace them with a non-columbia brand which is upsetting because I had such high opinions of my old boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like! Impressed with light weight boots. It will be nice to not have the extra boot weight when walking. Love the omni heat lined coats I have, so am looking foward to having warm feet next winter. I read other reviews recommending to buy a bigger size. Normally wear 9.5 and bought a 10. Glad that I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best boots ever made I got a pair of these boots in different color 5 years ago. I live in a rural area with horses, mud, snow. I wear these boots daily in winter. my feet have never got wet or cold. I wipe them off and people think they are brand new. these are truly the best boots ever made. thank you so much

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots This boots arrived just in time for a snow storm. They were fantastic, very warm. I wore them more than I intended without breaking them in, and had no problems. I haven't taken them on a long hike yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots All I can say is GOOD! GOOD! GOOD! Fits my feet and around the legs. Very Warm and great traction.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love them but couldn't I gave this an average rating because the shoes filled my immediate needs: dryness and warmth. I was hoping I could use these for short hikes / snowshoeing as well, given their style and nature but I found them quite uncomfortable to actually walk in. The sole is hard and unyielding and tired my feet/toes within 50 yards. The laces are too short to actually secure at the top, if you skip a hook you can do it. Yes I can replace these, but for the price point, I shouldn't have to. Also, I found it strange the the U shaped tongue gap was so low, it actually exposed my leg on either side of the tongue and I don't know anyone who has a 3 inch diameter leg that this wouldn't be problematic for. This makes it not waterproof to the top of the boot as advertised. However, I pulled my jeans over it and I took my dog to the park where I stomped through foot and a half snow for about 20 minutes with no problem with moisture and my feet stayed nice and warm, the snow was somewhere between powder and slightly wet, so I wouldn't be so confident in wetter/heavier snow. I was impressed it had a built in hook for gaiters. I won't be returning them as they fit the bill for shoveling, short walks between car and destination in slushy conditions, but I also wont' be using them for anything more strenuous because of the uncomfortableness in merely walking. There is cushion and arch support, but you certainly don't feel it. If I had paid full price for them, I definitely would have returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this boot! I bought these boots because I was only wearing Uggs outside... My feet were always cold!! I was just able to try out the boots in the last couple of days. This morning it was -13 degrees and my feet were fine! They are a little stiff but I will attribute that to them needed to be worn some more.

Date published: 2016-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good boots for cold and wet weather. Great boots for tromping around in the snow in, such as for shoveling out your driveway. Not perfectly hot and toasty, but that's exactly what you're paying for when you buy this boot rather than the warmer versions (ex Titanium). Basically good for every day suburban life. Very stiff around the ankle though; make sure to wear tall socks because you are going to feel it, for sure. Laces untie all the time unless you double knot them. Careful when running; you may find yourself getting caught in your own hooks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boot, but I miss my older models. First, there are at least three reviews on this page that are complaining about the rubber on the older model of boot cracking. You should know - that is NOT this boot, so that complaint is more than a little unfair. That said - I also owned a pair of the previous model boot (the Bugabootoo), and YES, the rubber cracked and crumbled at the toe. (After nearly 7 years of use, in my case.) I have heard that Columbia considers that a design flaw (and was replacing boots, though I don't know for how long, and I didn't ask that mine be replaced). I bought these, hoping they would be as good. Well, I began with the lower model (the ones with the 6" shaft and one set of speed hooks, made in Vietnam), thinking that they looked the most like my Bugabootoos. Wow, was I disappointed. They felt weirdly 'stuffed', making them feel both too small, and yet too loose at the heel, at the same time. And the ankles were *really* soft and flexible, and the laces only went through fabric loops. I felt like the quality had GREATLY declined. Then I thought I would give these, the Plus IIIs a try. Even though I did NOT want a taller boot, and 2 sets of speed hooks. For whatever reason, these boots, made in China (like the Bugabootoos), DO feel stiffer and stronger around the ankle. This is a GOOD thing, it means they're supportive. They are not, however, as stiff as the Bugabootoo. You may think that's great - I think that's terrible, since I'm concerned that it means a boot of lesser quality. I LOVED the stiffness of my clodhopper, snow-stomping Bugabootoos, because it meant that I was getting a boot that would be very supportive, and built to last. I didn't mind that they 'bruised' the ankle for the first week of wear - again, it meant they were wonderfully supportive. These Plus III boots are SUPER light. Probably half the weight of the old ones. (Not high on my priority list, but whatever.) The lower part of the boot is, surprisingly, NOT rubber. It's some sort of molded, waterproof, man-made material - and I didn't even notice at first. The soles are of course rubber, as is the toe-kick protector. They fit well, true to size (but I like my boots snug, and I don't 'leave room' for thick socks...you should never have to do that with a boot that's warm enough to start with, and these are). I've worn them for a few days, now, and they're tall enough to feel weird while driving - but they haven't hurt my ankles at all. I still wish they were shorter, because I see no need for the extra height. My biggest beef with these boots is the lacing system. The Bugabootoos had really nice, metal grommets, attached directly TO the upper leather. This was fantastic - I yanked those suckers tight on a daily basis, without a second thought. These Plus IIIs have much thinner laces...not sure I like or trust them, and they feel like they'd not hold as securely against themselves. But the grommets are....not good. They are barrel-shaped, and the laces go through them sideways, leading to the tension pulling them at an angle while tightening. I don't at all feel like I can yank them tight, and I certainly can't do it quickly. I feel like it's putting stress in all the wrong places, and like this will be the first part of the boot to fail. Anyway. Columbia - I hope you've made a good boot this year. I'm not overly optimistic - my first pair of Bugaboots lasted TEN years, and my second pair lasted 7 years. I have been a very happy customer in the past, I just hope that your quality and materials haven't declined, as I'm suspicious they have. Fingers crossed that I get another 10 years out of your boots (though my guess is more like 3, just judging by the feel of these).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I have these on right now, live in Northern Michigan, so far these boots are great, I purchased them because my husband has a pair and LOVES them so much, he insisted I get a pair, and he was right, feel great, light weight, durable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Boot These boots are terrific. I did go up a half size based on other reviews. With one pair of hiking socks, I'm good to go.They keep the snow out and are super warm. Whether snowshoeing, using the snowblower or out and about for long periods of time in the cold these are my go to boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Boots I find these Bugaboot Plus 111 Omni - Heat boots to run true to size. They are very stiff when you first get them which made me feel they were to small. After a few times of wearing them they softened up and fit great. I love these boots. I am outside for long periods of time and these boots keep my feet very warm.
Date published: 2016-02-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and dry, but a bit uncomfortable These kept my feet warm and dry when it snowed several feet. The top of the boot (around the ankle/calf) is really rigid and after walking a bit left my legs really sore (almost like I had a bruise, without any visual bruise). I'm keeping them in hopes that they break in over time. Other than that, they're really fantastic.
Date published: 2016-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from winter boots I love my bugaboots. Yes they are stiff around the ankles, as others have mentioned, but it makes me feel supported. They are very warm and comfortable. I also feel safer because of the good tread. Granted we haven't had a horrendous winter like we did last year in the mid-west but the times I have worn them, they have done what they are supposed to do - keep me dry, toasty and upright! Would definitely buy another pair in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubber Cracks I have the much older version of this boot. However they were not worn incredibly often and the rubber has cracked in multiple places. The pull tag in the back where you pull the boot on is also broken. I have had multiple Columbia coats and this is my second pair of Columbia boots. I have never had any issues. However, I don't think that I would ever purchase another pair of shoes from them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointed I have had Columbia boots in the past and been very happy. This pair of Bugaboots is NOT keeping my feet warm. The coldest it has been so far is 14 below (centigrade) and on a dog walk of 40 minutes, even with good socks and warming the boots before I leave, my toes are cold at the end. If I don't warm the boots first then my toes are blocks of ice half way. Lets hope we don't get down to the temperature the boots are SUPPOSED to be rated for. Going to try 2 pair of socks next cold snap. Have not yet subjected the boots to rain. Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boot for cold people I'm a small framed woman and during the fall/winter I literally freeze once the fall temps come. The past few days here in Michigan have been in the negatives and my feet have never been toastyer. I've been able to take the dog out, which I never do once it gets colder. The boots are a bit stiff but they'll break in, lots of room in the foot pad for thicker socks, love the style and tread. This was my first boot purchase in about 10 yrs and the more I move the warmer my feet stay. ...it's great! Totally worth this investment so much so my husband purchased a pair for himself. He loves them. He works outside all day and yesterday he didn't complain that his feet were cold when he got home! Good job Columbia. ....home run on this boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boots for my daughter I bought a pair of these boots for my daughter for Christmas and had them sent to her. Because of the wet and cold weather she decided to wear them. Since then she has raved about them, she absolutely loves them. It took about three days to break them in but it wasn't hard to do. She told me that whether wet or mud covered her feet stay dry and warm all day, and she hoses them off to clean them. Thank you Columbia for making such a quality boot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good Perfect for snow /ice (S/I) type weather. Feels like ski boots, a bit stiff. Otherwise great. Not for regular hiking without the S/I conditions. Keeps foot toasty
Date published: 2015-12-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very stiff They are a beautiful pair of boots. The quality is excellent and the fit is true to size. However, the back of the boot is extremely stiff. It feels like you are wearing a pair of ice skates. The materials are expected to be a bit heavy because they are water proof plastic to withstand very cold and wet temperatures but there is no way I can comfortably walk in theese. I exchanged them for a pair of Women’s Minx™ Mid II Omni-Heat™ Boots which I loved and recommend to check out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Bugaboot Plus III Omni-Heat In terms of looks, these boots are great. In terms of quality, they are perfect. They have just the right amount of heat and they fit very well. I'm still working them in since I find the back a bit stiff. They feel a bit like ski boots do at the moment, but I'm sure they will work in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boot I just received my boots and they fit like a glove. My foot just slid right into the boot when I tried them on. It is not cold enough yet to wear them but they will be great in the snow and for hiking. Very comfortable on your heal. I owned a pair of Columbia boots years ago and loved them too. The style has changed a little, and although they are a big boot, they are attractive and somewhat feminine.
