Feet never hurt once! By:

Nice boots By:
I ordered 1/2 a size up, as suggested by seller and other reviewer's. I wear an 8, so got an 8 1/2 (in brown). They are a bit bulkier than they look in the picture, but overall look good. Very comfortable. I've been walking around the house with them (with 2 pairs of medium weight socks) for 5 hours and they feel sturdy and warm. Heal and sides fit very well, toe feels a little boxy, but better than too tight. The soles definitely have good grip. Looking forward to testing them out on our daily 90 minute Colorado hikes. Already considering getting another color (blue or red) in an 8, for summer wear with one pair of socks.
GOOD Product By:
I LIKE THE COMFORT OF THE BOOTS AND THEY'RE LITE WEIGHT
First hike in these and I'm in love By:
These look great and felt comfy wearing them around the house upon arrival. I put them to the test yesterday on a 5 mile hike in snow and mud. My feet stayed warm and dry, and the traction was great. Based on the reviews, I ordered a half-size larger. I probably should have ordered my true size, as they feel slightly large but overall I am happy with this purchase. This is a really great vegan hiking boot for an excellent price.

High quality and cute! By:
I was looking for hiking boots for a family trip to Utah she after searching through many from well known companies I found these. The fit is great, they are very comfortable, they held up wonderfully on intense hikes, and kept my get comfy and dry and slip free! The best part is they are adorable and would wear well casually with leggings or skinny jeans in colder months.

Great Boots By:
I wore them around town yesterday while running around because it was raining and thought it would be a good time to work them in. I got them because we are going to Maui & doing hiking and exploring and wanted something light but waterproof.SUPER comfy & light! Very excited to try them out but also going to wear a little thinker socks. I ordered an 8.5 which is what I normally wear, they felt a tad big but I think with true hiking thicker socks be perfect. I got the Gray ones and pretty cool.
Awesome By:
Very nice and comfy. Wife loves them. Fit and choice was perfect! What can I say!!
Great hiking shoe By:
fits great and is comfortable for long periods of walking.
Great show! By:
Very comfortable and lightweight!
No bunion pain!! By:
I wear 8 1/2 extra wide in my dress shoes, 9 extra wide in athletic shoes, and boots do not have extra wide so I order 9 1/2 wide. All these extra wide widths are to accommodate bunions on my feet. These shoes had a nice fit—did not squeeze the sides where the bunions are located.
Perfect water proof boots By:
Wearing them right now and I am so inlove! I work production for festivals, so havign these boots when the fields are soaking wet is perfect because they are completly water proof. The ankel is great for support for long days of walking or hiking. I'll recomend to my friends for sure
Love COLUMBIA By:
Best comfortable shoe I own
Soooo comfortable!! By:
I purchased these for my Mom. She wears them when she's walking her very large dog. They keep her feet warm, her ankles stable (the yard is full of gopher holes!) and they grip the ground when it's wet. All of those things are very important for someone her age who's wrangling 108#'s of dog! She loves them and is very thankful that she has them. The fit was perfect and 'incredibly comfortable' in her words.

Exactly as described. Very comfortable with great traction

The best hikers I've ever owned. By:
I like wearing hikers in the fall and also in the winter too. They look good. They are a bit on the narrow side. To me the wide with is normal width. I put some Dr. Scholls work insoles in them and now they're very comfy. They're much more comfortable than the other hiker I've had in the past. I really like Columbia and will buy more in the future.
Wow.... Add inserts and you are walking in heaven..! By:
I am picky about my footwear. After years in the Marines, I won’t sacrifice on my feet’s comfort. I want comfortable, well built, good materials, and something that can take abuse.Bought these boots based in internet reviews and Amazon reviews. Fantastic boots! Great quality, good fit, ruggade yet light... Multiple colors... Great for day hikes or daily wear. Longer hikes I would prefer a heftier boot.ONE recommendation: They fit great out of the box. But my feet are boarderline wide so I bought the “wide” size. So happy I did. Plenty of room AND I was able to add better inserts than the ones that came with the boot! (See pics: black came with boots, tan ones I added) The fit and comfort level now is on the “WOW” factor! Get better inserts and you won’t be disappointed!
Full size larger than labelled. By:
I really liked how they looked and they seem well constructed. I returned them because they were a full size larger than labelled.
Love these boots By:
Not the most durable or comfortable but for the price they are pretty good and last a few years.

Happy hiking By:
Arrived yesterday, ahead of schedule. Walked a mile today to break them in. No blisters; no discomfort. Happy hiker.
Awesome and Reliable By:
Bought these for some hikes in South America a year ago. Still us the boots now for everyday use and they have held up great.
Nice pair of hiking boots By:
These are a pair of nice and sturdy hiking boots. These are also very comfortable and provide excellent grip on the trails.

These are the only hiking boots that do not give me blisters are rub my feet wrong and I've owned several. I normally wear a 5.5 women's shoe, but the 5.5 was too small. Size 6 was perfect. I recommend going up a half size from your normal shoe size.
Five Stars By:
Good traction, comfortable, waterproof, excellent midweight hiking boot. Could be higher for stream crossings but still offers ankle support.

GREAT pick over Durand (and others) for FIVE - possibly 7- REASONS! By:
I bought these instead of Keen's Durand style for two reasons - because a previous reviewer noted the Durand weren't roomy enough (or insole removable) to accommodate different insoles AND because they were lighter in weight than the Durand style.I'm quite please so far! A few things that make them especially nice for me (but may not work for others):FIT - as recommended by almost everyone, order *at least* a 1/2 size larger than typical. I already do this in running shoes, so it was any different for me to do this on these. (For example, I can wear anything from a 4.5 to 5 (35 EU is ideal) if I want sandles or heels to fit and not slide, but in "regular" shoes, I go up to a 5.5 and in running shoes, I'm a clear 6 in Nike's and New Balance and apparently, these). There is not only plenty of room for my toes to not bump the front in 1/2 size up, but also plenty of room for insole insertion...INSOLES - I have very high arches and am currently dealing with plantar fasciitis in one foot. So this was huge for me. Not only are the insoles here easily removable, they are actually pretty decent quality... meaning, if I wasn't dealing with fasciitis, I'd probably have kept them in. As a comparison, I inserted the "pinkberry" from SuperFeet brand inserts and there was no noticeable different between those "special" insoles and the ones Keen already puts in the boot. FURTHER, I was worried my super-high arch ones wouldn't fit, because they're so stiff, but I easily (without even trimming, in my case!) replaced them with the SofSole high-arch inserts (available at sporting stores) with no problem.ANKLES - I have very tiny ankles and so worried these wouldn't properly hug them. But the snugness is so perfect on these without being tight that I actually feel like I'm wearing a little armor around my ankles.LACES - I *despise* round laces for always coming untied no matter how many (and how) times I tie them. And so despite all hiking boots having them for strength/durability issues, I planned on replacing these as soon as they came, with typical flat laces (okay, I also wanted to insert prettier laces too). However, the two hooks on the upper ankle that you round before you tie the lace? They are rubberized and slightly expand - so your laces don't actually move! I even pulled the loops at the top of the footbed as I was loosening them up and they wouldn't budge until I removed the laces from the hooks! It's that good! This may wear out over time, but for now, it's impressive enough that I'm not even going to replace the laces yet!TREAD - The picture online didn't show very well how deep the tread would be on these, but it's satisfyingly deep enough to actually make a difference in hiking up tall hills, mud, and slippery leaves. I have not yet determined how quickly the tread gets gunked/filled up (or how easily the mud falls out) to prevent grip, but I"ll update later on that.I'll update on the following after testing:*WATERPROOFING: As I got the leather version, I'll be spraying waterproofer over it, even though it's already supposed to be waterproof (as you'd do with any camping gear).*TOE STRENGTH: I'll be kicking stones and such to test not only how strong the toes remain, but also how much the foot moves around inside when the toe is exerted.
Love these boots By:
Love these boots! My first hike in these was at the Grand Targhees but they've gone everywhere with me since and haven't had any issues. Like a second skin. I got them a half size bigger and that left perfect room for wool socks
Super comfortable! Don't even need to break in! By:
I wore these hiking boots for the first time on a 5-hour roundtrip hike. I had not yet broken in the shoes and was afraid they might hurt, but they were absolutely perfect! The Slate Black/Flint Stone color is actually more brown than depicted in the picture above. For a more accurate picture of this color, I'd recommend looking at the product on Zappos.com.
Five Stars By:
These are the most comfortable hiking shoe I've ever had. I love them.
