Got for husband. His first pair of hiking shoes. He had much better traction wearing them going up hill then with his regular walking shoes. He said the fit was just right.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these hoping to replace some trailrunning shoes but not necessarily for "that" purpose. They have proven to be, in the first couple of weeks of wear, very comfortable for long hours use mostly walking for miles in the city. I wouldn't wear them through mud and water as my toes got wet from morning dew in high grass but they are comfortable and I hope durable for many miles of general use. I have narrow feet size 11 but the size 11 feels very good and not too wide.
I would recommend this product.

My son had a hard time with shoes, either not enough arch support (we have flat feet) or too narrow or too tight in the toes and not uniform throughout.....but he tried my husbands shoes (these above) and loved them so we we went and got his size and they are working out great for him! Good wear so far and he does a lot of hiking for scouts! Also better fit in the toe and heel.
I would recommend this product.

Usually I find a shoe that fits my long, narrow heeled, fat toe foot and I buy one and love it to death. Then when it is all worn out I'm sad. So this time I bought 2 pairs. Perhaps I should have gotten 3!
The shoe fits well, has no rub spots for my boney feet, is light weight for traveling and I can wear it any where since I live in the Northwest.
I would recommend this product.

I'm normally a big fan of columbia's shoes. I've been wearing them for close to 10 years. My old pair of trail meisters needed replacing so I tried the northbend. The northbend shoes did not have much support and as a result were uncomfortable. I returned them.
I do not recommend this product.

I wear these to commute to work in the summer and wear them all day long. They hold up quite well to the beating they take on concrete all day. Without a WPB they ventilate very well to keep my feet cool and dry on the sales floor. The color hides stains well but a little too dark too be wearing with light clothing.
Activities: Vacation, Commuting
Conditions: City, Cement/Asphalt
I would recommend this product.
