I bought these shoes because the Hi Tecs I'd worn on a three day AT trip gave me the worst blisters of my life. I'd enjoyed my low hikers by Columbia, but I have weak ankles and needed more support; however I have very skinny ankles and muscular calves, so the high tops were too restricting.

These are very lightweight boots - a plus, but there is a problem first with the laces they are thin and don't hold well. Also, Columbia should add another eye hole in the middle part of the upper boot, it droops and doesn't cinch closed - resulting in a blister on the rear of my ankle where it wasn't secure and rubbed my ankle pretty raw. They also run big - so order a half size smaller - I wouldn't recommend them for people with very narrow feet as I have. They are a durable boot with a lightweight feel and if that one problem is fixed, they would be a five star boot. Had my husband create another eye hole in the upper section and bought new laces and no more blisters.

I searched all over Amazon for waterproof hiking boots for women that aren't hideous and these fit the bill perfectly! Super cute. rugged hiking boots. Lots of grip on the bottom, well padded, lots of ankle support, surprisingly lightweight. I would very strongly recommend you go a half a size up when ordering these boots no matter what, they are very snug (I'm a 7.5 and got an 8, so happy I did)! The laces are thin, but you could probably replace them if that bothers you. They don't look cheap, just not thick like I was expecting. They're very comfortable, but I don't recommend walking on concrete for extended periods of time in them unless you have hiking socks on! I had long regular socks on and the ball of my foot hurt a bit after walking the dog. These would be ideal for cooler weather hiking or shoveling snow, my feet got a little hot in 70 degree weather, but it wasn't too terrible. They are a little darker than in the picture but I didn't care. All in all a great purchase, and a good price from Amazon. I hope this helps you make your decision!

I love these boots. They are warm and waterproof, with good traction.

I am not a fan of buying shoes online without trying them on first and there weren't too many reviews out there to help me make up my mind, but I decided to just go for it and ordered these shoes. Took them out of the box and went hiking that day. Very light, comfortable (no blisters anywhere!) and water resistant (crossed through mud, creeks and sand). I'm in love with these boots and hope they will serve me well for many years to come, including the hike down the Grand Canyon next month.

I will agree that if you are between sizes, go up to the next size. The shoelaces are thin, but sturdy (for some reason thicker laces seem to have been a better fit for such boots).

Overall, very happy I got them.

*Update:

On the hike to the bottom of the grand canyon, completely destroyed my feet. Not sure if the shoes shrunk somehow or my foot got bigger, but let me tell you, three days of misery and these are back in the box never to be worn again. Just make sure you order half to a full size larger.

Love these boots, I intially got them for hiking only, but they are so cute,and comfortable, i find myself wearing them all the time. Good price for an awesome pair of Columbia boots, worth the investment for boots that will last a very long time.

I ordered a size 7 for my wife but this shoe is way too small for a size 7. I had to return it, pay shipping and couldn't get a larger size. Buy atleast one size larger than what you normally wear.
