Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why?!? I LOVE these shoes!! Best trail runner I've ever owned, light durable, comfortable... and apparently discontinued? I am so sad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality I have been a customer of Columbia Sportswear for over 15 years. I have always been satisfied with the products I ordered. However, I am disappointed with this particular shoe. It is not uncomfortable, but not as comfortable as shoes I've ordered in years past. In fact, I recently ordered a pair of Hi-Tech shoes from REI and not only were they less expensive, but more comfortable. In my opinion, this particular shoe is overpriced. The quality is poor with manufacturing thread and glue exposed on the shoe. Additionally, the product appears low in quality. I am disappointed and will not order this particular shoe in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a comfortable shoe These are the worst shoes I have ever owned. I had hoped they would break in after wearing but they haven't and now feel I can't return them. Blisters on the side of the heels and slips and pushes the front toe . Whole foot is miserable. I am so sad they don't carry the Trail Hawk 255. That shoe was perfect. I could walk 15 miles a day and never had an ache or a problem. So disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent walking shoe! I walk in outdoor and semi-rough terrain for my employment and these shoes are wonderful for summer use! Keep my feet dry and they are well vented so my feet do not get hot. Put my own orthodic inserts in and they are not too tight on my upper foot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Try it on These shoes look great, sole looks good... but the seam at the bottom of the shoe laces hits on the top of my foot where it flexes. Had to return them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Hiking Shoes Bought these hiking shoes for basic hiking and walking on trails. They fit true to size, but have quite a rigid feeling. They are NOT waterproof whatsoever, but the mesh does allow for good ventilation. Overall decent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I purchased these shoes to replace a pair of Columbia low hikers that I wore for years. These are extremely comfortable, and the laces stay tied without having to double-knot them. Very pleased with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I love this pair of hiking shoes. I have just started hiking this year, and I found that my knees would hurt at the end when i wore my regular sneakers. When I put these on and took the same route, no knee pain! They must work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great!!! I needed a women's 12 narrow (A or B width). This does not specify width but it fits perfect! I cannot wear men's shoes as I need a tight fitted shoe after having bones removed from my foot. This shoe fits perfect out of the box, I found it actually a bit tight and needed to wear it around the house to break it in. I am in love with it, this comes after trying several other styles and they were all too small!!! I am going to order another pair right now!!!!
