Customer reviews for Columbia Women's Newton Ridge™ Plus

Columbia Women's Newton Ridge™ Plus

Constructed with a durable mix of leather and mesh, the upper on this waterproof hiking boot is at once protective, breathable and secure. Inside, the midsole is lightweight and cushioned with enough support to keep up with even your most ambitious day trips. Hold tight to varied terrain with super-gripping, non-marking rubber outsoles that love to hug good dirt (not to mention rocks, grass, gravel and roots).

I was nervous about paying 90.00 plus for a pair of shoes on line with out trying them on, but after researching the boot and reading other reviews I went for it, and I am glad I did, I just joined a hiking group and they have been very comfortable esp. on the 10 plus mile long hikes!!!
I would recommend this product.

I run between a 7.5 and an 8, so ordered an 8. It runs just a tad big both in length and width, but I have narrow feet so anyone with normal feet is probably fine.
The shoes in general have a great design. I like the simplistic look of them and the shape of the toe - though I wish the brown wasn't so deep in color. Columbia could get a lot of traction selling these shoes with a lighter brown and some colorful laces.
The shoes do feel a little bit cheaply made compared to other Columbia shoes. I'm returning them because of the wide fit, however.

I bought this boot for weekend hiking, but it fits perfect as an everyday boot for fall/winter. I use number 8.5 but bought it 9. It runs a little bit small. Even for me, I have a narrow/thin foot. Very comfortable and very good material.
I would recommend this product.

Was really excited about these boots, and they fit me perfectly. I worked on breaking them in before using them on a larger hike. Once I used them on a larger hike to reach a summit, my feet were trashed. I got 5 blisters and they are still healing more than a week after the hike. I'm bummed cause I really wanted to hike a lot this summer, and waiting for my feet to heal sucks. I love the look of these boots and the durability seems good, but it's comfort evidently isn't good when going on longer hikes.
I do not recommend this product.

I rarely write reviews about products, but these boots deserve a great review! I did conservation corps, and built trails for an entire summer and wore these boots, out of the entire crew I was the only one who did not get blisters! My feet stayed dry, which is a must when camping for long periods of time! The next summer, I climbed five 14ers in CO, and they were still in pretty good condition! I just bought my second pair which is pretty good considering that I spent two summers almost continuously wearing these boots! Good socks are a must to accompany these great boots!
I would recommend this product.

I've been trying to find a replacement for another pair of Columbias that I have worn for years - and many, many miles. This pair does it. They are comfortable, pretty cool on hot days even with heavy socks. and waterproof. First time in years at Scout Camp that I didn't think about my feet! Even after 12 hours. Recommend getting a1/2 to full size larger than street shoe size but that's wise with most hiking boots so you can accommodate heavier socks. I love how the treads do not hang onto clumps of mud (doesn't track into the car)
I would recommend this product.

I work with sled dogs. I hike, bike, and play a lot in the great outdoors. These boots are incredibly versatile and well worth the investment. They are even good in the wet Alaskan weather that we have kept my feet dry even in the wettest of conditions. When worn with a pair of thick thermal socks, your feet will stay warm but never get too warm.
I've already ordered a second set.
I would recommend this product.

Love love love these boots!! Fit is perfect and I find myself hating to take them off. Just returned
from a trip to Maine and they were perfect for all the hikes we took. Since they are waterproof I am also looking forward to wearing them this winter as well. Highly recommend!!

Excellent through heat & rain. Hugged the terrain. So much better than a sneaker. I thought the rigid ankle support would bother me, NOT. I have flat feet & these supported them without inserts. I didn't break them in prior to our ZionNP & Bryce Canyon trip & thank goodness they were so comfy from the get go I could wear them throughout the day. I purchased 1/2 size larger because of adding hiking socks & for expansion of feet through the day. I originally wanted blue but then decided brown it would hide the dirt better.
I would recommend this product.

I had this pair of boots for 4 years. I wear them when I'm going in the woods, yard work, fishing, anything. It's not a winter boot, it's light, sturdy, comfy. My pair lasted 4 years before I had to retire them because they were no longer waterproof. I tried a different brand and regret it. I'll be buying another pair very soon.
I would recommend this product.

I returned this item as the foot bed of the shoe was horrible and likened a hard piece of cardboard and did not have an arch support. Very unlike their Winter coat line of products. It cost me almost $11 to ship back to Columbia, ugh!
I do not recommend this product.

I read the reviews in this page and decided to buy a number more than I usualy get (I`m a 6 and got a 6.5). I can`t use them, probably will have to sell them. Do not make this mistake.
I`m very sad because I loved this boots, they seem to be very confortable and I won`t be able to use them.
I would recommend this product.
