4.0 out of 5 stars good price, good boot..so far., November 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Columbia Sportswear Women's Bugaboot Plus Cold Weather Boot (Apparel)
I am a courier for Fedex. I live in Michigan so I need a good boot to keep my feet warm in the winter.
I will be honest, I swore to never buy another pair of Columbia boots for work..ever. In the last 6 years I have had 3 pairs of Columbia boots blow out on me within the first 3 months of wear, the last pair went about two weeks after I got them. Many of the drivers complained of this and after contacting Columbia with them showing little concern I said never again.
The Northface boots I got 2.5 years ago are holding up well but losing their traction. So after finding they no longer make the boots I loved..I started searching around and came up with Columbia again.
It looks as though they have changed some details on these boots, they are lighter, different insulation and what looks like a sturdier outershell.
Because of the price and discount I got I (against my better judgment)ordered a pair.
We had our first big snow today ( I got the boots yesterday ) and I got to try them out.
I wore them for 10 hours today. They were very comfortable, light, a little stiff ( but hey, they are brand new ) and very warm. I was in and out of my truck all day. Walked through 8 inches of snow mutiple times, walked through slush.... they were great. Didn't leak at all and my feet stayed warm.
So, I am giving them a good review, for now. I will come back later (after a couple months ) and comment as to whether they are holding up or if they have busted a seam like the previous boots.

so how did they turn out in the long run?

They were great! Never leaked, very comfortable...all in all a good buy. Two other couriers bought the same exact boot after seeing mine, and both are happy with them. So I am sticking with the good rating :)

They are still holding up well, although we haven't had the snowy weather to really test them. I haven't had to wear them as much as I have other winter boots in the past. I think they are a good buy. Not super light, a littl clunky, but for the money...not bad. My favorites are still the Northface (Snowcats..that they don't make anymore) but I am still sticking with the good rating on the Columbias :0)

Thanks Kimberly, I too am a courier for fedex in New Mexico and am searching for that perfect boot. I have a route up in the mountains near a ski resort. Thanks for the help.

Your welcome! I hope you find one that keeps your feet warm and dry. There is nothing worse then working all day with cold wet feet. :)

I just wanted to add an update. The boots are STILL holding up well. They did end up sitting out most of 2013 because I worked inside for the bigger part of the year, I only wore them for the occasional sledding run etc. But, I am back out delivering and have worn them everyday since (In snow up to 16 inches deep) and they are doing great! I wear a thin knee high sock with a sport crew sock over it and have no complaints about my feet being cold. They haven't leaked at all. I do wear gaiters with them for the really deep snow. But, overall....very glad I got them. I am on today because another courier (that would make 4 now ) wanted me to order her a pair. Great job Columbia!

How is the fit? Especially with thick socks..

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 8, 2014 1:40:50 PM PST
I would buy at least a half size up.
