The boots arrived very quickly and the price was good- however
I am very disappointed with the quality of the boot. They seem cheap-
and I didn't expect that with Columbia. The zippers barely work-
you need to really exert quite a bit of force to get them zipped.
I'm afraid I'm going to pull the zippers right off! The ankle part of the
boot is so incredibly stiff...it's actually hard to walk in them.
I'm hoping that they soften up over time. Overall, just not happy
with the quality.

I was lucky enough to get these before the "Polar Vortex." They were a little stiff in the ankle at first but loosened up after I wore them. I like the slight rigidity, which makes them easy to step into. They are very lightweight. I had no problems with the zipper. They may have unzipped by an inch a few times, but so do my uggs. I have only worn them relatively short distances, so I don't know how they would do for long walks. Perfect for snow blowing and shoveling. Warm.

I've had a pair of boots similar to these in the past so was prepared that they are a "little stiff". When I'm wearing a thicker sock I don't notice it. I live in Colorado and have a home in the mountains (Winter Park). These boots have kept my feet happy and snug through many a dog walk, hike and back and forth to the ski hill. I generally have problems with my feet and hands getting cold and these are by far the warmest, lightest boots I've owned.
Columbia.... can you figure out this technology for a glove?????

I loved the look of this boot and was very excited to order them. However, when they arrived and i tried them on, they were very uncomfortable. They are very stiff around the ankle and i wasn't going to chance trying to break them in and hope for the best with the level of discomfort right off the bat. I gave two stars for the look of the boot and the quality seems very good, but if i can't wear them, they don't do much good.
