A Taylorwrote a review of Columbia Newton Ridge Plus II Waterproof Hiking Boot - Men's on August 11, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large
I'm a police officer and I ordered these as an alternate to cheap "tactical" boots from Under Armor or another company. They are light, look nice, and pretty comfortable. After three days of ten hour shifts, I can say they break in very easily and don't overheat, even when it's been 90F (I wear FitSok trail running socks). The leather seems a bit thin and the upper is only glued to the outsole without stitching so I'm not sure how long they'll last, but for 65$ I'm happy.
