I live in Minnesota so I was looking for a pair of boots that would be warm, comfortable, and add some style to my outdoor outfits. Thank you Zappos for shipping them so quickly with great customer service as always! We reached 12 degrees this past week, so I was able to really put these boots to the test. I have never owned such a warm pair of boots! I am a true believer in this Omni-Heat thing that Columbia has going on! My feet never got cold walking around the city (I even wore thin socks), and they are so comfortable that I was able to wear them all day without any blisters or sore feet! I have slightly wider feet than average, and these ran just a tad on the small size so I went up a half size. I bought the black ones and they are a more matte in real life than the picture. The rubber soles are also really great for walking on ice (we've already had snow and ice this year, go figure). If you're looking for a cute pair of stylish boots that keep your feet and toes warm, this is a great boot!

Very happy with the look and quality of these boots! I was looking for an alternative to Uggs and these boots are much more comfortable, have a nice insole and arch support(and my heels don't flop up and down when I walk) and look cuter. Have not tested them out in the cold yet, my they seem very warm. Beware, they run half a size small.

I love these boots! The picture does not accurately represent the black boot. It is not shiny black but rather more of a flat black with just a little shine. Really classy. I have a narrower foot and they fit perfect with a medium weight sock. I wear a 7 1/2 in shoe and that is what I ordered and they just what I wanted. I like they are not clunky and I can actually feel my feet. I haven't worn them in snow or ice yet but they look like they will keep me stable, warm and stylish.

I have these on right now! I love them! They have the feel and the grip of a pair of comfy sneakers! Definitely not a pair I'll ever want to take off! They are lace ups which I also love because I can adjust how tight I want them around my legs! Love the style and besides them being so super comfy, they are also super warm! Great boot!

A flexible winter boot! I live in minimalist shoes these days and now find stiff, thick soles almost painful to wear. I have wanted a "barefoot" winter boot for a long time. I tried the new barefoot boot by Merrell, but found the fit and flex all wrong - tight in toes, loose everywhere else, stiff sole. This shoe is what I was looking for! It's flexible, light, roomy in the toes, but the laces let me secure it so it stays with my feet.

I ordered these boots for my trip to Canada. I tried them at home and they fit really nice and they are cute. However the sporty look is limiting what I can wear them with. Returned because went with another Columbia boot: Ice maiden lace. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because of the price.

Love these boots! They kept my feet very warm and dry in the snow and rain, are lightweight, very flexible, and cute. They do seem to run smaller but I notice this seems to happen with most of Columbia's clothing anyway.

I have Raynaud's syndrome so I was searching for boots to keep my toes ultra warm. I purchased these after trying them on and have worn them everywhere! My toes stay same temperature as the rest of my body but my feet do not sweat. They are very flexible - I even wore them for a 5K race in the snow!

I echo other reviews in that these are adorable and so comfortable! I have high- ish arches so I need a boot with softness across the top of the foot. The 8.5 fit perfectly, but I opted for the 9 since I like a little wiggle room for my toes. The 9 is slightly bigger while still fitting snugly around the heel with my thin Smartwool socks. I have not warn them in sloppy, wet snow yet; the tag says they are waterproof, though, so we'll see. The tongue of the boot is flat and wide, so it feels like it won't let anything leak in. I will be wearing them for walking to work in the city, and these boots have nice grippers on the bottom for icy sidewalks. Happy winter, everyone!

I haven't had Columbia boots for a while but took a chance on these. They exceeded my expectations. They are more comfortable than tennis shoes, and the sole seems to shape to my foot. And they are cute!

I love these boots! My daughter's wedding was held at Mt. Hood in Oregon where it snowed heavily. Not only was I warm and dry but the tread of the soles allowed me to walk feeling safe. Not to mention how pretty they are!

Ran at least a full size short. Zero arch support with the squishy footbed. After walking around 5 minutes in my house with these on, my arches started to ache. Too bad, these boots are so cute!

I wanted a white pair of boots, that could be worn with leggings or skiny jeans and not look heavy/work-like and still be cute. These are them! They are SO comfortable! I was nervous about the sizing after reading reviews, but I am a consistent 9, and the 9 fit perfectly.

I love these boots! They are ridiculously comfortable, warm, and waterproof. I was concerned that they'd be a pain to put on because of all the laces, but they tighten easily with a single pull from the top. The soles have good traction, and I can walk long distances in them. And they look good, either under pants or with the cuffs tucked into the boots.

These are really great winter shoes. They look adorable, extremely comfortable, and super light. Flexible sole allows to drive comfortably and they are really warm. I had chance to test them in real snow this winter and they stayed warm and dry. Will get another pair in blue or brown soon.

I purchased these boots to use every day during the winter months as well as for snowmobiling up in northern NH. I have to say they are the most comfortable boots (or shoes) I have ever owned! And my feet are always toasty warm (with one pair of medium weight socks) even when riding all day in -20F....I will say, however, that my feet are very narrow, so I doubt these would fit anyone with a med - wider foot. I would definitely purchase these again!

These boots feel like a light support sneaker and a slipper all in one. Comfortable, waterproof and warm! Lightweight and surprisingly cushy. I am a size 7.5, purchased an 8 and I'm able to wear a thin or thick sock. I hike and walk with my dog daily (in all weather conditions) in these boots and couldn't love them more!

These boots are awesome. Insanely comfortable, they look great, and so far, they've kept my feet warm and dry. I am glad I listened to the reviews and ordered a full size larger than I normally wear.

Love the boots, warm & comfortable. But I ignored other reviews that said the boots run small, and that was a mistake. The boots run a whole size small.

I bought this boot for a whirlwind trip to NYC in January. Temperatures were in the 30's, and I was going to be doing lots of walking. I wanted a boot that was stylish, warm, and very comfortable. I am a size 12, and very tall, so it's often difficult to find shoes that both look cute and hold up to long hours of walking. This boot covered all my bases. The sole is very soft and flexible, and the upper is extremely light. The reflective material and faux fur really do keep you toasty warm. I wouldn't recommend it for normal weather, though. Wearing the boots around in California usually makes my feet and legs sweat like crazy. Definitely a great boot, though.

Very warm and very comfortable, these boots are my favorites of the season. The boot feels lightweight and flexible. They are nothing like the clunky boots but practical boots I usually wear. I love these boots.

I am a dog walker in southeast Wisconsin. Our weather is rather unpredictable and we face many different walking conditions from one day...total ice and below zero temps, to heavy rain and 54 degrees (with lots of puddles, salt and muddy mushy terrain) the next. I love these boots! At first I thought I may need to exchange them for a half size larger, but now that I have worn them for a few weeks, I am happy I kept them. Comfort, support and flexibility with out any of the heavier, bulkier boot. My feet have stayed toasty in the extreme cold and heavy snow to dry in the mushy wet and puddle laden terrain (with only one layer of socks). I also love how they clean up from the mud and salt. I originally wanted black but was out of stock so I settled for the cordovan. This is a really nice color more toward brown with not a lot of red tones which I have seen in this color before. I just hope I can find a summer walking shoe I love as much as these boots!

THESE BOOTS ARE AWESOME. I bought them for a winter trip to NYC, and they held up amazingly. I have flat feet, live in warm weather, and don't walk much. For my trip, I knew I'd be walking hours and hours a day in freezing cold weather, so I was worried. These boots were a lifesaver. First, my toes never got cold, despite the 14 degree weather. They're warm. Seriously warm. Secondly, they have removable insoles. I was able to put in my own inserts, which is a big plus for me. Third, they have great ankle support while still being super light and flexible. I walked for HOURS in these things and never got a blister or sore feet (although I did have a slight lower back ache eventually, but that's not the shoes' fault). All in all, they're lightweight, mildly waterproof (worked fine in the snow), and amazingly warm and comfy. If I could give six stars, I would.

These boots are perfect for running around town. They are like slippers! I haven't gone sledding with them yet but they are very warm and stay dry. I did have to buy them one size larger than normal just like the other reviews suggested. I liked these because they don't look like all the other boots everyone is getting. They are light and flexible not clunky and stiff.

Super warm! The Omni Heat lining (think baked potato!) reflects your body heat - toasty warm in 12 degree weather. Very lightweight. The laces are easy to loosen and tighten, they slide off and on quickly. Not crazy about the gray fur on the black boots, so I trimmed it to 1/4 inch to reveal a nice solid black fur. Ordered 1/2 size up from my usual size, but it's not necessary to wear thick socks to work up a good warmth. Soft interior, they feel more like slippers than boots, but the tread on the bottom has a good grip in snow. Best snow boots ever.
