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.

Overall a very solid boot. I wanted something that would keep my feet dry, warm, while still looking nicer and less bulky than a regular pair of winter boots and these fit that bill! They seem to run very true to size for me and are great all around boots - not really a complaint but as others mentioned it takes a couple days to break them in as the tongue is a bit stiff but does break in. The definitely have kept my feet warm in the chilly MN weather and would recommend them to any looking for a good boot that is not bulky but still looks good. Solid product.
I would recommend this product.

Main good issue is the comfort using the shoes size 7, it represents good average of other shoes same size.
Comfort is good and excelent for cold weather-

I bought these to replace my 20+ year old boots and just in time as we got hit with back to back +12" of snow with -5 and -18 degree temps. They have been OUTSTANDING for both keeping me warm and dry. Additionally, I am female and they didn't have my size 10 so I ordered men's size 8. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Columbia hit a homerun with this boot. It’s very stylish and can even pass in corporate casual work environments in the cold weather states during winter (sorry people in the South). But most importantly, it functions well. It keeps your feet warm and it's waterproof. My only issue with these boots is that I don’t want to get them dirty! But that’s what I bought them for, to trudge around in the snow and slush….
I would recommend this product.

I've had these boots for a few weeks now and they are wonderful boots. the omni-heat liner is a bit cool for the first 15mins (if just walking around or sitting still) but they warm-up fast when exercising. I've even worn these to work with standard socks and your feet get just to the too hot line inside but don't over-heat. I've always had cold feet but even after walking outside for hours in west Michigan my feet where toasty warm with standard socks. you don't even feel a temperature difference in you toes when you walk outside with these on. they are very light weight for boots (feel like a heavy pair of high-top shoes). they hold track-shun on any surface, no slipping in the store floors and their great on ice. the metal rings for the laces let the boots open up without a fight for getting the boots on and off easily.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this pair from Mirdif City Center Dubai for my tour to Russia. I liked the style and the Tag of -32 was there on the shows. I confirmed form the salesperson about the temperature it can bare, he confirmed that it can bare till -25. But really disappointed when used these shoes here in Russia whereas the temperature was only -1. I went for outing with my friends, initially it was ok, but my feet start getting cold within in an hour. and it was unbareable after just couple of hours. I really feel that I have lost 150 USD as well as my trip to Russia.. :(
I do not recommend this product.

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.

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.
