I have worn them only a few times, they look nice, feel comfortable, have not tested them in the rain yet.
I would recommend this product.

The Yama Outdry is my second pair of Columbia waterproof shoes. The first pair leaked after about a month and I was able to return them to Columbia. I've had the Yama shoes for about 3 months. They've kept my feet warm and dry while working on a boat, walking through the rain, and getting hosed off. I'm glad I got the mud colored shoes because it hides the mud very well. I gave the shoes 4 stars because Columbia runs a little wide for me and it took a couple of weeks to break in the shoes. I haven't worn them during the warm months. I hope they don't make my feet too hot.
I would recommend this product.

Such a good pair of low cut shoes. I hiked 5-10 mile path with no problem. Surface I hiked on was flat. Feet were very comfortable. But I would not use these on rocky terrain. The bottom of the shoe would need more traction. Very happy with this purchase.
I would recommend this product.

But I'm wearing them in London and in my feet most of the day. By the end if that day, my dogs are howling. I tried them with and without my inserts. Same result. I've switched back to my Ecco's and will only wear the Columbia's if I've got nowhere to go and all day to get there.
I do not recommend this product.

I just wear the shoes in rainy days and not for climing.
I think Columbia's shoes always runs a little small, so
if you are 7.5 size, I suggest you take 8.
I would recommend this product.

When I received them I thought they looked good. I put them on and found I could feel the underlayment and ridges under foot which I have never had a problem with before. I thought it would improve with a little wear and found I will have to purchase a liner and arch support. They also wwere a little smaller than previous version I have worn. My 8 1/2 felt more like an 8.
I do not recommend this product.

So my needs weren't for hiking or running although I have hiked in them. I work at a fish hatchery and my feet get wet, I walk 5+ miles a day, want to look cute, and need comfort. Out of the box they fit like a dream, are comfy and breath and my feet stay dry. I am in love with these shoes and want to buy another pair for spares. I was getting used to throwing out shoes after four months but these I think will last much longer,
I would recommend this product.

These are wonderful shoes! I have medical issues that create very bad foot pain after walking/hiking after only 15 minutes. I ordered trail shoes from 2 other companies and had to return them. I almost gave up and then I read the info on these shoes and tried again - I am so very happy! I printed out the sizing guide and ordered based on that. The size is perfect - sometimes I have to get a wide but not in these shoes. These are so comfortable and they protect my feet when hiking on rocky/rough trails or just plain pavement. I'm not kidding these are great! No foot pain after 2 hours - I'm amazed. Thinking about getting another pair just to hold until next summer. If you have foot pain but love to get out and enjoy nature you have got to try these. Two things - they are a little warm (or it could just be me) and for me the arch support is perfect but if you need extra support these may not be enough.
I would recommend this product.

Comfortable right out of the box. True to size. Sole under ball of foot a little thin, but support in the heel and instep is very good.
I would recommend this product.
