They seem like they would be nice sturdy warm boots for snow but I couldn't make it past the front door with these boots. Very stiff boot that rubbed at my ankle. My philosopy is that if a shoe is going to rub and hurt before I go outside, forget about it. I've had enough hotspots and blisters in my life to not want to have to "break in" shoes anymore. If they didn't rub, they would probably be great shoes.

I bought these for winter trail running and they are super supportive, light weight and warm. They are a little stiff and I only lace them up over the foot and leave the top undone for more movement when running, they are more comfortable that way but may soften with use. I look forward to using them with my snowshoes I will like the support and lightness!

Bought these boots out for snowshoeing. They're perfect except for the following: The laces are a bit hard to tighten and I learned that I need to leave the top laces looser so my shins don't get chafed. Also, while the soles are excellent for traction on snow/ice, they're not eayt to slide in and out of my snowshoe bindings!

I am very happy with these boots. I was looking for a lightweight, warm and waterproof boot for snowshoeing and these do the job. I found they were true to size and have good support. They come slightly above ankle. They are a little stiff but the first time I used them I went snowshoeing for over 1 hr and had no problems. I'm sure they will break in more each time I wear them. I previously purchased Northface Nuptse 1V because they were extremely lightweight and soft, however, there was no support, not waterproof and strap from snow shoe cut into my foot. They were very comfortable but not the right choice for snow shoeing. These Columbia do the job. I would give it 5 stars except a little stiff but as I said, it did not cause any problems and it has great support.

I bought this pair of boots to walk in the woods with my dogs and also to go snow shoeing. In a couple of hours out in the snow the boots kept my feet warm. When tying the laces I felt more comfortable not tying all the way up... Other than that, the boots are perfect!
