Kathleen F.wrote a review of Columbia Redmond Mid Waterproof Hiking Boot - Women's on March 5, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought these boots for work and to walk my husky. I work at The Home Depot in Michigan so I’m on my feet all day and it gets chilly and I have to walk across the sometimes snowy, slushy parking lot plus the dog needs her walk even when the weather is less than pleasant; she loves it when it’s snows and sleets. I wanted something comfortable, lightweight, durable, warm, water resistant and, of course, cute; these boots are all of the above! Based on previous reviews I bought a half size larger than I usually wear. With regular socks the boots were rather roomy but with my Columbia socks (I call them foot joy because these socks are awesome) they’re still a little roomy but comfortable particularly at the end of the day. I don’t believe the specified weight but nonetheless they’re not heavy and don’t hurt my legs or shins (I have a tendency to get shin splints wearing heavy boots). They are snug at the ankle but they give good support. The laces are a little long but I double tie them and they stay put all day. It took longer to break them in (4 days) than anticipated and it’s a little challenge to get my Yaks Tracks on them (my dog is like the mailman and will walk in any weather even when momma doesn’t want to). I think they were a good value and I’m very pleased!
