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.

Was outside in the frigid polar vortex and the only thing that remained warm on my body were my feet. Thanks to the Columbia boots.

I had a very tough time breaking this boot in, the first few days the tongue dug into my shins pretty good.
Everything the lady on the phone explained is true. I find that I have better traction than my coworker with a more expensive winter work boot. My feet are not cold or sweating which is very impressive.
I would recommend this product.

I bought the black version of boot about 5 years ago. I have worn them in Russia and in Canada and they do exactly as it says on the tin! Great boot, good fit and very functional. The reason I replaced my old ones is the the stitching has gone where the lower half of the boot meets the ankle guard area. However given the age and wear, I guess that is a normal expectation. The rest of the boot is perfectly fine which says a lot for the quality.
I do not recommend this product.

it looks nice but not really water proof, somehow got wet on toe after wearing 8 hours. the pair I purchased may even have a defect on the right side, my right feet (around the angle) hurt after wearing few hours.
I do not 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.

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.

Had to get new snow boots when the Polar Vortex broke my other ones. These have been great so far. Actually water proof and very well-insulated. Plus, they look nice which is a bonus.

The title says it all - the shoe is nicely constructed but runs large (the 13 was more like a 14) and is light on insulation (only 100 grams (should be at LEAST double that).
In addition, the toe region is very wide and tall creating a gap between the insulation and your socks (I wore very thick socks btw). This sort of makes the (light) insulation useless and my feet were cold. I guess you could put a toe warmer in the gap...but ain't nobody got time for that!
I do not 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.

I was looking for a medium weight snow boot that was comfortable and not as stiff and bulky as my heavy wgt. Keens. These boot fit the bill. The length of the boot was perfect for the size but they are wide and have a large toe box. This worked great for me because I inserted an insulated insole and the fit was perfect. They are warm and comfortable and about half the weight of my heavy boots .
I would 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.

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.

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.

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.
