Customer reviews for Columbia Men’s Bugaboot™ Original Omni-Heat®

Columbia Men’s Bugaboot™ Original Omni-Heat®

Inspired by the original Bugaboot, this boot has refined heritage details and a classic look, but doesn’t skimp on technology – it’s laced with Omni-Heat® thermal reflective lining and insulation to keep feet and toes warm and comfortable during long, active days in cold weather conditions. The supple waterproof oil full-grain leather upper and rubber shell create a protective foot environment while rugged metal lacing hardware lends durability and ensures a secure fit. You’ll stick to unpredictable terrain with a high-traction rubber sole that enjoys a challenge as much as you do. This version of the popular Bugaboot collection is distinguished by the waterproof corduroy details at the collar and tongue.

I haven't tried it on snow yet, but for the cold weather they are good.
As every boot I had tried, it is necessary few walks to tame them. Probably for long walks could be useful to have a softer insole.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these boots online and originally loved them. They look awesome! They fit large but this is good especially if you were wool socks, although these boots are already extremely warm to begin with. The design fault, from my view at least, is the tongue. It is so big and intrudes so far into hole your leg goes in that you leg feels pinched. Especially, when walking around this can be extremely uncomfortable. Instead of dealing with the pinching, I went to the Columbia store and exchanged them for the Bugaboot Original Tall.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these boots about 8 months ago and they have yet to let me down. I take them on every trip that I expect the temperatures to get below 35 degrees. They are comfortable and don't have any pressure points. I have worn them everywhere from hiking and snow shoeing to walking in NYC, they are comfortable on any surface. I have had several friends buy them and not be disappointing.
I would recommend this product.

I needed a new pair of boots to make a trip to Chicago. I ended up outside more than I had anticated and thankfully these boots kept my feet warm. I had considered other boots, but glad I chose these.

At first I was a bit hesitant on what size to order but I ordered what i usually wear and they were a bit narrow at the tip of the shoe. After wearing them a few times I can feel that they do break in and are comfortable. I haven't worn them in extrememe cold temps yet but so far I am pleased with the purchase! My husband usually wears a 9 in boots but ordered a 9.5 and they are perfect, so I would suggest ordering a half size bigger because they are a bit snug with the insulated lining.
I would recommend this product.

The height of the boot is a little misleading. It also rubs a little on the leg but overall a good boot to have.

Great boots. Totally waterproof and very warm. Just wore them every day in about a foot of NY snow. Only reason I did not give them 5 stars is that it really took 2-3 wears to break them in. The top of the boots are pretty rough at first and dug into my ankles. They're great now - highly recommended.

I had been looking for a boot suitable for winter weather that wouldn't break the bank. I searched a lot of competitors. This boot had all the features and good reviews I was looking for. I can wear my standard work socks or my extreme weight comfortably and not feel like my foot is going be squeezed or so loose it will float in the boot. My feet were warm through some very harsh temperatures. They were dry after a few hours of being in the cold and wet. I had no trouble feeling as if I was going to slip as with other boots. I felt good traction, except on the ice and even then it wasn't too bad.
I would recommend this product.

I have a size 15 shoe size and am from Miami, Fl. I moved to NYC a few years ago and have gone through several winter boots. Each one had a major flaw, but thank god, just in time for this crazy winter (2014-over 10 snow storms) I bought these boots at this great deal of $75. BUY BUY BUY
I bought one size up because I like the room for winter boots.
I would recommend this product.

I had previously bought the Bugaboot OmniHeat Plus II" with 200 grams of insulation; these boots have 100 grams of insulation. These boots are great for the outdoors where temperatures are really frigid, keep your feet fry and warm. The other boots are great if you really spend a lot of time in snow and ice. Now I have 2 great pairs of Bugaboots for different activities while I am at work. Columbia really out-did themselves when they designed these boots.
I would recommend this product.

I've only recently purchased these boots, but I've already gotten great use from them due to the numerous storms passing through the North East. I bought these boots because they look much nicer than the typical "duck boots". I got the brown color and they look great. People didn't even realize I was wearing snow boots until I pointed it out. These boots are very warm, and have proven waterproof so far. I have a lot of Columbia products with Omni heat, and it appears to be working great yet again. My feet have been nice and warm without feeling too hot, which is common in snow boots.
I would recommend this product.

Just bought these boots for the snow. The Boots are warm and fit to size however the top portion of the boot is extremely uncomfortable around your legs/ankles and causes severe discomfort and irritation. Do not recommend.

I have had Bugaboots in the past. This pair does not keep my feet as warm as my others have. I am very disappointed and thought I got the same pair that I previously had. Apparently "Original Omni Heat" are not the boots I previously had. Again, very disappointed with cold feet..
I do not recommend this product.

This boot does the job of reliability. It does run a little bigger in the toes area for me because I have narrow feet but this helps when I wear double socks. Its snug fitting around the ankle and where the foot meets and laces up well. And its not that heavy on the foot.
I would recommend this product.
