I wore these Columbia boots during my sons friezing cold and wet soccer games this past weekend. My feet stayed warm and dry all day. These boots are surprisingly light for the warmth they provide and look great both with leggings and jeans. The sole has good traction (like my Solomon hiking shoes). They have better arch support than Uggs, and are definetly easier to maintain. I highly reccomend these boots for COLD WET weather. They would be great for college kids hiking accross campus during winter too.

The Columbia Heavenly Shorty Omni-Heat is just that heavenly! Columbia as usual puts out a great overall product. The boot insole is soft and feels nice while standing or walking. I wore them for over 5 hours out of the box and my feet felt great. The boot runs a little tight, especially if you are going to wear heavier socks or have a wider foot, so I would suggest buying a 1/2 size larger. I'm a 6-1/2 and the 7 worked well. The Omni-heat fabric is true to its name, feet stay toasty warm. Overall Columbia has put out another quality product that is functional with style. These boots are really cute, the right height, sitting just above the ankle, and do what is asked of them, to be comfortable, warm, water resistant and durable. You will enjoy them!

I am a picky shoe buyer and I absolutely love these boots - I live in Pittsburgh so we have lots of slushy days and occasionally snow, but most of all I wanted my feet to stay warm walking from the bus stop to work. These boots go above and beyond - like other reviews, I will echo that they feel like slippers on your feet. Incredibly lightweight, they keep my feet very warm in all conditions. I found they ran a little small but not small enough to warrant going up a half size. The style is also very attractive - the laces make the boots very adjustable and the appearance suits many styles. Would buy again!

The Columbia Heavenly Shorty Ommi-Heat is the perfect boot! The reflective material keeps my feet warm and dry when outside in the fickle Central IL winter. The boot is very comfortable, stylish, and very light. The boot sits just above the ankle and the faux fur cuff is cute as can be. I wear regular socks with my boots and the boots fit perfectly. If you wear thick socks, or have wider feet, take the advice of other reviews and order a half size up to ensure a great fit.

I bought these shoes because I wanted something waterproof and snowproof! These shoes are perfect, they feel good and they deliver. I am in between a size 9.5 and a 10 and the 10 fit perfectly and I don't have to wear thick winter socks!

The size and width is perfect for my narrow feet. I normally wear a size 8N and the 8M fits just fine even with heavier weight socks. The boots are comfortable but I have not yet worn them outside. Just waiting for the first snowfall or cold wet rain to wear them. It's true that if you have a medium width, that you should order a half size up. I have another Columbia pair of winter boots and they do run narrow as they seem to fit me fine too but it also helps when they are lace boots to tighten up even more if needed.

I wore these throughout last winter and loved them. I few events where I need to be outside for hours at a time (6+ hours each in 20s-30 degree weather) and they keep feet toasty warm. Uggs also did that for me, but the run of the mill shoe usually can't do that for me. In fact, so good I can't wear them to work or a place inside for more than a few hours or they get too warm. Good traction, very comfortable. Super happy with this purchase even after months of wear. Still look good too.

These boots are amazing. For the first time in 19 years my feet stay warm all day at my office! I sit near large bay windows and am always cold in the winter (even with my little heater under my desk). Not anymore! As long as my feet are warm, then I stay warm. I haven't had to use my heater since I purchased them. I really like how the boots have a little bounce to them so my knees and back do not feel the impact of walking. I had knee and back surgery so I have to be picky about my footwear. I followed the advice of the other reviews and ordered a half size up. I normally wear a 9 and ordered a 9.5. Perfect fit for regular socks. If you plan on wearing thick socks then I recommend ordering a full size up. These boots were very comfortable straight out of the box with no break-in needed. I wear bootcut slacks to work and they cover the boots nicely. As an added bonus for me, they are really cute with my NYDJ skinny jeans. :)

My new Columbia Heavenly Shorty Omini Heat Boots are fabulous! They felt like slippers as soon as I put them on. For a boot they are very light weight. The toe box is roomy. The ankle length boot will be perfect for a wet cold day in Altanta or a cold snowy day in Colorado. The sole has good deep treads for walking in snow. The black quilted body is stylish. The faux fur trim looks good and feels good around your ankle. What makes this boot even better is that they are waterproof and will keep your feet warm. This boot actually creates heat inside while you wear them! I would highly recommend the Columbia Heavenly Shorty Omni-Heat Boot!

Cute boot and ordered 7.5. Wear 7-7.5 and these fit. I also ordered the Meadow shorty and Meadow. I think these are cute boots but am leaning toward the Meadow as they are taller. If I didn't need to on occasion walk through snow banks in Chicago, I'd be happy with either of the shorter boots.

I purchased these boots mainly so I don't break my neck when I walk through the snowy parking lot and sidewalk at work since we've relocated. The boots look great out of the box, but when I put them on, they are kind of odd. If you look at them from the instep,it looks like they are on the wrong feet. They are tight at the ball of my foot but fit fine everywhere else. They are kind of straight and narrow when most women's feet are curvy at the ball which also makes them look odd from the top. They do however provide great traction on snowy concrete and gravel and they are comfortable to wear all day and the tightness across the ball did stretch out. I don't stand around outside much so I don't know if they are warm and dry but other reviews say they are. The color and style is very good, the appearance while on is so, so and they are comfortable and lightweight after the initial stretching out. They are very good for walking on snowy and icy surfaces which is why I kept them. My purpose for buying snow boots was safety and I feel these boots do that.

I love these boots. However I would like a wide width better.

I wear a size 5 medium -- hard to find -- and these boots fit perfectly. Warm and comfortable. I have heavy ankles and these boots fit there too. Sturdy soles with a good, no-slip grip. I'm very happy with them.

My new favorite winter ankle boots! I have very sensitive feet and finding shoes that don't rub, irritate or give me blisters is a challenge. But these Columbia heavenly boots are so comfortable, cozy and cute! They're warm, lightweight and flexible. They felt great right out of the box, no break in period necessary. I'm size 9.5-10 in most shoes and ordered the sea salt/fawn color in size 10, they fit perfectly. True to size but if you're between sizes I'd say go with your larger size, especially if you plan on wearing winter socks that are a bit thicker. I confirmed with Columbia and these boots are all textile uppers/faux fur/synthetic/manmade. I'd been searching for a high quality alternative to Uggs which I quit buying after going vegan a few years ago, so happy to see Columbia making such stylish and functional alternatives that are equally as comfortable. I prefer the more feminine look of these compared to Uggs too! They look great with yoga pants, skinny jeans. The bottoms have a non-slip rubber tread, so crunching around in the slushy melting ice and snow hasn't been a problem. The only downside I can think of is to consider if the height is right for you. They're ankle-height and they only lace up below the fur trim. So with the tongue being somewhat open, they could be prone to snow or other debris kicking up into the boot. Not a big deal though, I'll invest in a taller pair of boots for those occasions. If you're on the fence about these, just order them already, they're so worth it!

These boots are the best!! I traded in my Uggs for these boots and I am glad I did. Keep my feet toasty warm which is very important for me.

These are so cute! Snug first wear, but quickly became very comfortable. I got a 1/2 size bigger, since I wear heavier socks on the cold days. Live in Chicago area, and these gems keep my feet warm and dry on the cold, windy days. Wish they came up my leg a bit more to offer warmth, but so glad my feet stay warm (because once they're cold, all of me is cold!).

Testing them out in 8 degree weather tubing this weekend and my feet were warm the entire time. They are very comfortable and perfect for my wide feet. I ordered half size up per recommendations and don’t know if it was necessary but they fit well. Definitely room for thick socks. Very flat bottom so if looking for more support theses are not the boots. Good traction. LOVE them and so happy to have warm feet.

This is such a cute boot. I was looking for a warmish boot that felt comfortable like a sneaker so I could walk a few miles in them. Because I need a high arch and wanted optimal warmth I have mixed and matched my own inserts to get a super comfy and warm fit. I love them.

I have struggled this winter finding boots that I can slide my post-Achilles surgery foot into! These are just perfect. They open up wide enough (after loosening the laces) to enable me to put them on. They are loose enough in the shaft that they don't rub my scar tissue and they feel very soft inside. Also, they are no where near as stiff as a Sorrell. Works perfectly for me.

Great snow boots but almost too comfortable. I'm not sure they have the support for hiking in snow but would probably be great if you were out playing around. I have rather wide feet and these fit very comfortably, but would probably be too wide for thinner feet. The style is really cute, I ordered the black, not sure I could keep the white clean.

I absolutely love these boots. I had to return size 10 for 10.5 (like the reviews suggested) and they are super comfortable, warm and stylish. The laces are thick and no stress whatsoever lacing them. There is no “break in” time necessary, I wore them to Christmas with my new white coat and felt stylish and comfortable. Well worth the purchase!

I've had this brand before and you definitely need to order a whole size up. The comfort is great in the boots. Feel like tennis shoes or better. So cute too!

These are absolutely, hands-down the best boot I've ever owned. I walked 10 miles a day around Paris last December in sleet, wind and rain, and my feet never got wet or cold. They fit and wear like a great tennis shoe, but are so dry and warm. I prefer them to my Uggs now and loved them so much that I ordered a second pair this year just to make sure I'd have some if they were ever discontinued.
