Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! These boots were everything I was looking for. They can handle rough and rocky desert mountain terrain and are so cute! Extremely comfortable and durable. Didn't need breaking in. Was able to comfortably rock climb and hike with them on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME HIKING BOOTS! I was researching hiking shoes for my trip to Iceland and these were the perfect shoes! I usually don't write reviews ever but these shoes were so amazing! I didn't have to break them in because they were super comfy. I'm a size 6 but I bought a 6.5 for room for thick socks for the Iceland winter weather. They are definitely waterproof through all the snow, rain, and puddles. Even when the snow was knee deep at some points! My shoes were also drenched with mud all over for one day and then next day it looked brand new after wearing it through the snow. Did a lot of hiking and never complained about pain. I bought the Elk, Mountain red (brown suede with red laces) so cute and good quality! LOVE MY BOOTS! THANK YOU COLUMBIA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Stylish I love these hiking shoes! They were comfortable from the start. The only thing that took getting used to was the ankle/high top area, so I've spent a little time breaking them in. I love the look of these shoes as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and Comfy! I LOVE these shoes! I bought them for all my adventures in the Oregon rain and mud. I took them up to the mountain to go snow tubing and they worked great! Kept my feet warm and dry, and made for some cute photos. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hiking shoe for Alaska! I ordered these boots because I needed something light weight but durable to my trip to Alaska. Despite how light weight these shoes are, they kept my feet dry and comfortable the entire time without any blisters! The tread on the bottom and the comfort on my feet allowed me to hike the trails and bend my foot around a rock for better footing. My mother ordered a pair too, and she loved the boot even though it is normally hard for her to find shoes she finds comfortable to wear all day long. I was very impressed with the durability of this boot, they're still in great condition even after the trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! And I have big, wide feet Thank you Columbia for making women's shoes in larger sizes, and that will even fit wider feet very comfortably. I've tried lots of hiking boots over the years (men's and women's as I wear an 11.5/12 women's and it isn't often easier to find a 10.5 men's) and these are the best fitting, most comfortable and, might I add, best looking I've seen. I could do without the red laces, but that's just getting picky ;) I've only worn these on two hikes so far so I can't speak to their durability, but I haven the had to break them in for them to be comfy and they've had great support and traction - even on the sandy and rocky Colorado trails. I also walked through a brook and my feet didn't wet, but that wasn't deep nor were they enduring wet conditions for extended time. Hope this is helpful to at least some of you! Happy hiking :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hiking Boots The boots look great and feel comfortable. However, I got these in the middle of a subzero tempt wave and have been unable to go truly test them out on the trail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Hiking Boots Ever! I recently bought a pair in Elk color for a trip to Panama and Costa Rica. I chose them based on previous reviews stating they didn't require a break-in period and describing their level of comfort. I was not disappointed! They held up amazingly well through the numerous muddy jungle hikes we went on. For being a suede-looking material I was initially concerned about their waterproofing, but they stayed perfectly dry and cleaned up amazingly well after being covered in red clay. I did go up a half size to make room for thicker hiking socks which worked out very well. Bonus - I got lots of compliments on how cute they are! I'd highly recommend them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but not like pictured The suede is a light brown, not the rich brown that is shown in the photo. Great design but wrong coloring for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfortable boots! Because my foot is so long, I usually wear men’s boots, BUT this pair of women’s Columbia’s fit my foot so well and are so comfortable. My feet are in heaven with theses boots and I am excited to have discovered that you all make comfortable boots in my size. Thank you! I will be buying more of your boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Comfortable Boots!!!! I am really glad that I ordered these boots. They look really nice and stylish on my feet. I have gotten several compliments on them. I wear an 8.5 and my feet is right at the toe of the boot. The only thing I can think of is because I wear extra thick wool socks with them. I think that the socks might take up a little of the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots The boots fit well and are comfortable. I'm happy they are waterproof. I'm glad whenever I find a woman's shoe in large size. Most stores must think that all women's feet end at size 10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, functional boot I love the colors and cut of this boot. Great to wear when its snowy around the city, and on hiking trips. I normally wear a size 8 in shoes, and this size was true to the fit. Has a wide footbed, makes them comfortable to wear as soon as you get them, with plenty of room for thick wools socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shoes for hiking! Broke these bad boys in on a hunch. Loved the fact that I don’t even need to do that. Walked a 5+ mile hike in the Smokey Mountains up & down. Weather was a tad cool. Feet were warm the entire time. Highly recommend for buying or gifting. Can’t wait to wear them for the next hike up north! Also they are a perfect touch of color & the red laces make you feel alive!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe for hiking I bought a new pair of hiking boots for my upcoming trip to Yosemite. Haven’t got to wear it much but it does seem comfortable. As always, go up a size if you’re going to wear thick hiking socks. Plus I love the brown color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hiking boot! I bought these boots for my girlfriend and she loves them! We live in Colorado and we have gone hiking while she wears them 4 times already. The more they break in the more she likes them. She loves the style of the shoe and how efficient it is at hikes. It has great support and ground grip. I would buy this same boot for her again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Shipping and Awesome Quality Ordered these online and they shipped in three days. They fit perfect ( I ordered a half size down) and they're very comfortable. Very Versatile. I haven't tried them in water yet, but I'm sure they're fine. I have worn them in the snow and they work great!
Date published: 2017-12-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, comfy, functional These shoes are awesome. They took an hour or so to break in because they were stiff at first like any other shoes, but man they were comfy and so grippy right off the bat after that. I took them on a very steep rocky hike and there wasn’t a single time I slipped. The traction is great I will recommend to all of my hiking friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Boot Choice I bought these to replace some Columbia boots I bought years ago. They were on sale and what I was looking for style/function wise so I bought them on a whim. They are comfortable out of the box and are roomy enough for very thick socks (so perhaps they run a tad large). I look forward to breaking these in completely, but so far they have been very comfortable walking in. A solid choice for a replacement pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful and heartbroken. Mine we’re stole I love the shoes they fit great, stylish, I bought inserts for them to make them even cushier and to help with my arch support. We had plans to go hiking in two weeks, but I never had the chance to wear these because my boots we’re stolen brand new out-of-the-box from my car. I’m so heartbroken because I was so excited about these boots. I guess all one can hope for is that the person who stole them really needed them. I hope they keep their feet warm and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable The boots are so so light, super comfortable to walk in, I had absolutely no problems to go up a very slippery tough mountainside!! I also didn't feel any small rocks which was great! I can't describe my emotions, I had so much fun wearing them. Thank you for designing and creating such great hiking boots :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These boots are waterproof and warm. I was looking for a comfortable, lightweight, waterproof boot for work. These boots are living up to my expectations. I do think the arch support could have been a little better. I would recommend this boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No break-in required for Newton Ridge Boots Highly recommended. Ideally for the whole family. My son owned a pair of Newton Ridge in youth size and I was impressed enough that when my family went on a National Park tour I ordered pairs for the entire family. And I am so happy I did. Due to timing my family was unable to break-in the boots before our trip, which is far from ideal and the wrong to go about it. However, we were very fortunate because the boots felt amazing right out of the box. We put them through the tests of tough terrain and rain while camping/hiking in Death Valley, Great Basin, Rocky Mountain, Arches, & Canyonlands National Parks. We are not a backpacking family, but rather day hike and car camp. For our needs the Newton Ridge exceeded our expectations. Hands down I will continue to buy these boots for my children as their feet grow and replace the boots with new pairs for my wife and me as we wear them out. The sale price certainly helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ankle support! They boots fit great. I bought them to replace some ill fitting Merrels that caused a toe to go permantly numb. Haven't had any problems with these! The toe area is spacious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediately Wearable I did my research before I purchased these online. I even went to a sporting goods store to try on different types of the same brand of shoes before ultimately purchasing online. I ended up purchasing these without having tried on the exact pair in a store, so I thought I was taking a risk. However, it has turned out to be a good one so far! I purchased true to my size and they fit perfectly. I made sure to wear socks designed for hiking, and I'm glad I did, just for caution's sake, but I have yet to develop any blisters from the 4 or 5 times I've worn these. I'm going on a lengthier hiking trip soon, but I'm confident these are going to hold up, and so are my feet.
Date published: 2017-10-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hiking I've worn these hiking and for field work on farms. They clean very easily, even when I got them coated in mud. I'm still breaking them in but I found them very comfortable so far. I've had some slight rubbing on my heels when I wear thinner socks but not enough to bother me. My feet are on the smaller side and narrow 7.5 or 8 usually fits bet. The size 8 fit exactly how I wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best run about boot I have owned! Great look, feel and function at a very good price!. Only item that needs to be changed out is the insert. It is as flat as you can get. Anyone with an arch is going to be uncomfortable. I changed mine out and it made it perfect. Plenty of room also for cushy socks. First time out I walked over 10 miles with no problem!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! I've always been a trail runner type of gal so never actually owned a pair of hiking boots until I found these beauties. Right out of the box they were light weight and comfortable. I wore them on some pretty significant hikes right away and didn't get a single blister. I was happily surprised that walking on uneven ground and rocky terrain didn't hurt my feet at all. Another bonus: I bought the brown ones with the red laces and they're darn cute which is not an adjective I generally use for hiking boots. I usually wear a size 8 in dress shoes and go up a ful size to a 9 for running shoes. I bought these in an 8.5 and they work great with both thin and medium thick socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots for hiking various terrain I work outside and I wear these every day. I have had issues with some brands saying their boots are waterproof and then they end up not being anywhere close. These boots are definitely waterproof, they're comfortable, and once I've had them for a while I will attest to their longevity/hardiness. I've worn them through mud, on hills, and various levels of terrain and my feet don't hurt at the end of the day. So far, very satisfied! I can't wait to buy them in the second color scheme!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute AND Comfortable My previous pair of hiking shoes had a very stiff sole so these were such a nice treat, the sole is flexible & actually comfortable. I sized up 1/2 size in order to fit in an arch support/orthodic but still need to wear a hiking sock as my foot did slip a little in a thin sock. I love the look of these, they remind me of a classic hiking book esp. with the red laces. I'm happy with purchase.
Date published: 2017-09-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hiking Boots I bought these for my gf to go hiking at sequoia and she loves how cute they look and the quality of the sole as well as waterproof material to keep her socks dry. The grip on the sole also gives her a lot of stability when hiking rocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots These boots are light, comfortable and easy to walk in. I wore them on the Escalante River. The hike crosses the river several times and you walk in the river for long stretches. The boots were great. I was happy with how nice they held up and cleaned up after they dried.
