I work for UPS so all i do is walk all day. So far these have been the most comfortable boot ive found for winter use. I was able to get 2 winters (about 9 months) out of these where i walk between 60-80 miles a week before i developed a hole in the leather on top

These boots feel great, and they look great. However one problem. I have sweaty feet, and if you do too, these things will pretty be the equivalent of putting 2 insulated plastic bags on your feet. The PU coating is great for waterproofing, not so great for sweaty feet. I didn't last a week before I had to return them. Overall satisfied with quality, but could not bring myself to love and keep them.

These are awesome! I've been wearing combat boots in 15 forever and I always felt they didn't fit right. Finally got remeasured and tried out a 14 wide and they fit perfect! Wish I would have purchased these at the beginning of the academy, they are leaps and bounds more comfortable and lighter than the 5.11 boots I've been trying justify keeping. Can't go wrong getting a hiking boot for all day wear on the streets; wish I'd bought them sooner.

Only had them a short while but so far more comfortable than I thought it would be and looks as good as it does on the web.

Lining does not smell of antibacterial treatment, which is a major reason I'm on my third pair. Theyre light and comfortable for a lot of walking. Also definitely waterproof. Leather is plasticized which also seems to make the uppers last indefinitely. Soles are cushioned and treads are soft and the heels wear out noticeably in a couple of months of a few miles a day.

i work for UPS and walk all day and these boots are comfortable.these boots are great for wide feet. i have high arches and as suspected these did not provide enough support so i had to put in my dr scholls, but i pretty much assumed i would have to do that. my feet stayed dry after wearing them on the first pouring rain day. My only compaint would be after 2 weeks one of the metal lace hooks broke off because it got bent too many times by snagging on my other foot occasionally

So far I have been wearing these boots for two weeks and I will say I am satisfied. I have not had them in any amounts of water yet. However they are great so far for motorcycle boots. I do hope they will allow me to ride in rainy weather.

Nice looking and flexable but like all the other Columbia boots I have bought they run nerrow. After I streach them they will fit just fine.
I'd also recommend:
New Balance for sure.

So this will be my 3rd time buying a pair of Newton Ridges. They are hands down just the best hiking boot you can get for the price. Are there nicer boots out there? Yes for sure. But Newton Ridges not only look good enough for some city walking when it's chilly, but can hit the trail like nobody's business. My first pair took me on many different overnight and through hikes. My second pair has close to 200 miles on them thanks to two backpacking trips. And I am excited for where my third pair will take me. If you are looking for a solid leather hiking boot, or a nice sturdy shoe to wear when the snow and ice comes to town. You cannot do better than Newton Ridges.

My feet are on the wide side but I normally don't have to get wide-sized shoes, I just have to be careful about which brands tend to fit me. These came in a wide version but I went with the normal version and although when I first put them on they seemed too tight, after wearing them once they stretched out a hair and I knew it's a close, but acceptable, fit. Perhaps I just got lucky.

Nice boot, wearing a quality sock I went with a 16 while my big feet are 15, perfect match. Comfortable, sturdy and warm boot that should perform well for many years. Thank Zappos and don't change your business model.

Overall good value. I had to re-order a size wider because the medium was just too narrow. I am happy with everything else so far, it is easy to get the boot on / off.

Bought these for my son, who is a Scout, and it seems to be the perfect boot. They fit him well with no breaking in period. Seem to be rugged as he fell in the muddy water in them the first day he had them.

It is a good fit and light; plus it has not yet creased. Hope it keeps that way.

Been rocking my 5.11 tactical boots for the police academy for the last 6 months and i wish i would’ve went with these first. Extremely comfortable boots and very flexible, no issues on or off road chases. Probably get a second pair soon for backups.

I was tired of wet feet in the rain - then I found these. They are very well made, and feel much more "expensive" than the price would indicate. Very comfortable with only moderate arch support (I replace liner with SuperFeet in all my shoes). Waterproof and dry. Can be worn on a hike, but look nice with jeans for casual attire. I've even been complimented!
