Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not great for extended use and being on your feet all day I have had the shoes for almost 2 months in preparation for a hiking trip. They started off great wearing them around in order to break them in. However, the more I've worn them, the more uncomfortable they get when I wear them regularly for days on end. Basically, I wore them to a standing concert, followed by working yard/house work, for three days straight, and by the end of the second day my heels hurt terribly and slight pain around the ankles (laced all the way). I am not sure if it is basically because I was standing almost all day for three days, but I cannot imagine that hiking shoes do not have enough support and cushion to stand/move around (especially on flat terrain). I am actually a bit nervous for my 3 day hiking trip to Colorado next week. I do love Columbia but hopefully these shoes pull through but currently am not happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer for hiking I just got back from an intense five days off hiking in Maine and these boots were a game changer! They provided great traction and ankle support for navigating steep boulders. Also lived up to their waterproof claim. I'd recommend wearing them with thinner wool socks as they were a little snug for thicker socks. Or order a half size bigger. Either way, these are a great investment and helped me feel more confident and comfortable hiking. Can't wait to wear them more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Hiking Boot These are the best hiking boots that I have ever purchased. They are very light-weight and not at all bulky, making them ideal for long hikes on mixed terrain. I tried them out for the first time on an eight mile hike last weekend and was very impressed with how comfortable they were. They're also super cute for all you train fashionistas out there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zion and Baby approved With unusually high arches, this boot brought total comfort while trekking about Zion with a babe on my back. While toting our little lassie, my feet had limited aches as we spanned 10+ miles a day. The height of the boot is ideal as it supports the ankle while keeping my foot relatively cool. The grip of the boot is perfect for hiking on numerous terrains and provides sturdy support. The shoe laces are perfect for infants to chew on! Multi-functional! :) Not only does it provide wonderful functionality, it is a great looking boot with any type of pant. I am excited to wear them in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic hiking shoe I bought these shoes after reading a few reviews super last minute for a hiking trip to Iceland. They are SUPER comfortable, totally waterproof, and are amazing support. They look great too. I got a half size up and it was perfect. I had no blisters, no issues whatsoever when hiking -- I've never experienced this before with hiking shoes. These ruled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable Shoe I bought these shoes for my trip to Alaska. They are super comfortable for walking long distances and are pretty lightweight for hiking boots. I love the style and the fit and am excited to wear them for more hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hiking Shoes!! I found these shoes true to size and wore them on a hiking trip. They were comfortable and remained waterproof through a heavy rain storm. Excellent for hiking in dry and wet weather. Hardly needed to be broken in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7 True to size. I have used these shoes walking in the woods when I was very wet. A lot of mud. The bottoms of the shoes didn't leave any mud under when I was done walking. I didn't need to clean the bottom of the shoes. love it, very comfortable too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hiking Boots Love the quality and construction of these boots - will come in handy on winter hikes and in the rain. I've got a pair of low top hiking shoes and researched awhile for a pair of higher boots for ankle support - these hit just right and have the perfect amount of cushion. Would highly recommend - boot runs true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted My husband and I are planning a hike trip to Machu Picchu in the fall and needed some waterproof hiking boots. I searched the reviews about sizing and found others comments very helpful. I usually wear 8.5 and have a wider foot (although not enough to order the wide). I ordered the 9 because I wanted a little room in the toe area and I planned to wear medium weight socks. When they arrived, I was thrilled with the quality, the weight of the boot and the fit. There was toe room but they weren't too big. We decided to wear them around town Saturday afternoon to start breaking them in (which really wasn't necessary as it turns out!) and they were so comfortable and were lighter weight than I expected for this quality boot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's size 12 fits true It is difficult to find a women's size 12 but Columbia Sportswear has just what I need. I bought Columbia winter boots and was very happy with them, so when I was in the market for a good walking/hiking shoe I went first to the Columbia website. These boots fit great. I wanted extra cushioning and the insoles that come with the boots are too thin. I bought cork SOLE, "performance thick" from REI and it was a perfect marriage of boot and insole. EU 44 is the right size insole for the Women's 12.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boston 2018 I bought these boots based on reviews I had read and my sister's recommendation, and I wore them to the infamous 2018 Boston Marathon, which was about 35 degrees and pouring rain. My feet were kept dry and warm for about 1/2 hour, but slowly but surely I felt cold dampness spread from the upper to the sole of my right boot. When I took them off in the car on the ride home, there was a puddle of water in the right boot, whereas the left boot was totally dry. These boots are wonderful and comfortable if you are not anticipating rainy weather; the sole is comfy and the arch support is incredible. They just did not stand up to the test that Boston gave them that day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot! This boot was great! I wore it hiking all week in the mountains and they were just the boot I was looking for. They ran just a tiny big, but with I liked that because you can wear a thick hiking sock of necessary, but did not rub or leave a blister with a thin sock. Had a lot of play time in the river with my dog, and my feet stayed really dry. They were also breathable. Great boot, would highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product has great features The hiking boots I received had reached my expectations in what I was looking for in a boot. I had bought several different boots from different stores, but did not have the standards in what I wanted. Was a bit hesitate to order on line, but after reading the reviews on other peoples purchases and the return policy, I ordered the boots. I could not be happier as I enjoy hiking a lot and wanted the right boots for all different kinds of terrains Thank you (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot in all weather! I bought this boot to use for some upcoming trips in Europe. While I haven't used them for hiking yet, the day after I received them, I used them to trek to work in a snowstorm! They kept my feet warm and dry, which is fantastic. But while they're comfortable enough, I'll probably add some extra support with an insert. Can't wait to see how they hold up on my trips, but I'm confident they'll be great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST boots Ever! I have many old boots of many brands 'de-commisioned' to gardening or muddy walks w/dog--but for my serious hikes and backpacking trips these are my favorite boots of all time! I was so worried that Columbia might change the product I went back and bought a second pair! (and I purchased a pair for my outdoorsy daughter) Comfortable and truly waterproof, I have confidently crossed streams via rocks and hiked through very wet conditions--These boots can't be beat!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still testing I am really pleased with my boots, they are ever so comfortable. The reason I didn't give all my ratings as excellent is that recently I went for a walk and it rained and my feet got very wet and so I am not sure about how waterproof the boots actually are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and Functional Hiking Boots I definitely recommend these boots. They are cute while still working well. I usually wear a 9 or a 9.5. I chose a 9.5 and they fit perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot I live in Minnesota and wear hiking boots pretty much year round, usually waterproof ones. However, the last few years finding a good boot that can be worn everyday has become that needle in a haystack. I just happened upon these. The price was right so I went for it. SO glad I did. They are comfortable, lightweight, and are REALLY waterproof. A lot of boots make that claim and you find out the hard way that they aren't, but these are. On top of everything else, they have good traction. That's key for me because of where I live. The only drawback is that one of them is a little snug around my ankle. I'm sure that will loosen up with wear, though. If you're looking to wear thick socks with these, you might want to go up a half size as they do run true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great hiker i love these boots. much like my other Columbia hikers, there isn't much in the way of arch support or inner cushioning (my one standing complaint with their footwear), but they are overall a comfortable, well fitting and supportive boot. as a mid rise ankle boot, i felt super supported from ankle rolling or sloshing around in it over rougher terrain. waterproofing is solid, though i was yet to hike in extreme wetness to fully confirm. thicker socks (i went a 1/2 size up so i could do so) and i feel just fine warmth wise on a mild winter day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I hesitated to purchase another pair of hiking boots from Columbia because the last pair were tight around the toe box and still tight now after 2 years. But this pair is comfortable from the beginning, and waterproof unlike the last pair. Very good purchase.

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 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 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.
