I love these boots. I don't think they run too small; I'm usually between a 6.5-7; the 6.5 was a little too tight and the 7 is perfect with heavy socks. You don't really need heavy socks, as these are so WARM! I was not, however, expecting them to be as comfortable as they are: the footbed conforms to your foot and is super springy. Warm, light, waterproof, super-non-skid, not gigantic, and not ugly. I couldn't ask for anything more.

These boots aren't the most attractive, but not bad. They are, however, the lightest, easiest on/off boots I have ever worn. They feel like slippers when you put them on with lots of cushion and support. I was all set to send them back when I saw them and then put them on and it was love. Would recommend to anyone who wants a good winter boot without needing to make a major fashion statement (though I have received many compliments on them).

Not the most attractive boots by far, but I really like these, and have worn them pretty much daily since they arrived. They are very light-weight, and fairly warm (nothing, and I mean nothing, will completely keep my feet warm if it's cold out). I am a big fan of the Omni-Heat fabric that Columbia uses, and it works well in these boots. I wanted a boot with a narrow shaft that I could wear wider-legged pants over, and these work well for that. They are also roomy enough that I can tuck my pants into them if it is wet outside.

These are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn! Well worth the price! I walk around my house in them like slippers because of the comfort and they kept my feet warm after hours in the snow with my children! Buy them! You will love them! A+. But make sure you buy a half size up or they will not fit!

These boots are light weight, warm, and comfortable. They are perfect for all my winter outdoor chores and taking long walks with my dog. I would buy them again.

I have tried on so many different snow boots, and these are by far the best ones out there. The other boots that claim "slip on" are a joke. These are super easy to put on, are very cute, and keep my feet warm and dry. These are the best, hands down. I have wide feet and these were still perfect. I did get one size up, for extra space and comfort. I recommend doing that. I can still wear socks too and it doesn't feel too tight. You can easily tuck in your pant legs too (I hate when they get wet from the snow). They have pretty good grip although I'm not sure how they fare on ice. But for snow and rain, these boots rock. Also, the zipper area has fabric stretched behind it so there is no way water can come in, even if they are unzipped. So awesome. Love these! My dog loves them too, since I'm more willing to trudge through miles of snow for him with these boots on.

Warm, comfortable, and lightweight. These really are cute boots and they fit a WW foot. I ordered a size 10, which is true to size, and the were perfect right out of the box. I haven't had any snow to test them out in, but they are great for keeping my feet warm on my three mile dog walks.

Love, love, love this boot! It is exactly what I was looking for a lightweight water repellent boot to sit by my front door for taking trash out, letting dogs out, taking a brief walk (I live in the mountains and no concrete around me, pine needles and gravel and they are totally comfy, warm and perfect! I did go up half a size in case I wanted to wear thick socks.

Great boot! Wore in Montana, temps 10-28 degrees and didn't even need socks! Also, styled more like a shoe, not an oversized, clunky boot...love them! Go up a half size...I wear an 8 and ordered 8 1/2.

I was looking for waterproof, non bulky boots for the winter. These boots are awesome. My feet stay super warm. They are slimmer than my Uggs and keep my feet dry. I have very flat feet and need arch support; these boots are great and support my feet even if I wear them all day. I highly recommend them.

I was very fond of this boot! It does run a bit small. I take 8.5 or 9 & the 9 fit a little snug. I didn't find it unpleasant, though because the boot is light & moves with your foot. It is very easy to move your ankle and the foot bed is springy & gives pretty good support. it is easy to get on & off. It is also very warm! But I live at 6,000 feet, & we sometimes get a lot of snow at once. So I wanted something a bit taller. I went with the same boot that goes further up the calf. Love them both, wish I could have kept them both :) Maybe next year!

These boots are awesome. I have a wide foot, and wide calves, I had no problems zipping them up, or wearing them. I bought them to wear on a trip to Germany and France at Christmas time. They did exactly what I expected. They kept me very warm, without being hot, kept me dry in the rain and sleet, and were so light, I hardly knew I had boots on at all. They were comfortable to walk in all day long for more than 2 weeks! I normally wear an 8.5 W but got a 9, and all was excellent. And, they look good with a skirt!

These are so comfortable. The insole is made of some kind of dense memory foam that cradles the foot. The fabric top is soft and flexible and looks expensive. I had to order up half a size but the fit is sleek and cozy.

These boots were really cute when I received them until I put them on. Either due to lack of arch support or a flaw in manufacturing, my feet fall inwards towards my arches making me look like I should be wearing corrective shoes. So disappointed as they were perfect in every other way...

Ordered two pair of these boots on Saturday evening and received them on Monday morning! It was the holiday week end also, amazing how fast I received my boots. Put them on immediately and wore them all day. Love the fit and comfort. Very happy and feels like floating on air. I did order 1/2 size up and I am glad I did because they feel wonderful. Still wonder how I got these so fast.

I did not purchase this shoe through Zappos, but rather Amazon. I am a however a regular Zappos customer and due to the lack of review history when I was investigating this boot, I thought I would post my review here to benefit my fellow Zappos community members as well. I have been searching a long time for a light-weight snow boot for general recreational use (shoveling the driveway, running errands, etc) and I think this boot is going to work nicely for the intended purpose. Materials & Fit: I typically do not like the fit of heavier duty snow boots that are tight and overly stiff around the ankles and shins. These are exceptionally light and comfortable and provide a flexible fit in the ankle and shaft that is not overly tight or loose (not sure you would be able to tuck jeans into these though). The foot bed is fairly form-fitted (not sloppy and loose) with good cushioning and comfort and I experience no lift in the heel when walking. The foot bed is very flat though, so if you are looking for good arch support, this is probably not the boot for you. The sole of the shoe is admittedly squeaky when you walk on some indoor surfaces such as hardwoods, but the sole provides good grip I don't think there will be any problems with slipping on wet or icy surfaces. Sizing: Runs small. I'd recommend ordering a half size up. I'm typically a 7.5 or 8, but tend to lean more towards an 8. I ordered an 8 originally, but my toes were at the very top of the shoe with a very light-weight sock. Ordered the 8.5 and it fits nicely with a mid-weight sock with a little room to spare. Temperature Rating/Waterproofing: I have not yet used these in wet/cold/snowy conditions, so I can't give qualified feedback on this yet. I will say having now seen the boot that I'm skeptical about the temperature ratings on these (-25 F). But, I have not tried a Columbia shoe with the Omni-Heat feature yet, so we'll see. If they perform well to their temperature ratings and waterproof statements, I will increase my overall rating to 5 stars.

I am sad to say that I will be returning these boots. I love the way they look and the sole is extremely comfortable yet durable. I wear a 10 and ordered an 11 so that I could wear thick socks with them. I found that after wearing these with midweight socks around the kitchen for an hour, my toes were severely pinched. I do not have wide feet, and the boots do not look narrow, so I was a bit surprised. They fit great everywhere other than in the toe area. I recommend trying them - maybe your toes will like them more than mine did.

These boots are adorable however, when I put them on, I felt like My heel was immediately being pushed into pronation making me feel like my ankle would collapse at any time. I had to return them because I did not think this would be safe on the ice. I have seen other reviewers mention this. Must be something with the construction and lack of arch support. Very cute style though and super comfy otherwise,

These boots are going back. Columbia tends to run a bit on the small size, so be sure to order at least half a size up.
