Columbia Men's Northbend Leather Trail Hiking Shoe
Good everyday shoes
These hiking shoes provide good support for every-day wear. I would recommend them for daily use, however, I have not used them for hiking yet, so therefore I am unable to highlight how they work in regards to hiking on rough terrain.

no more foot pain
My personal experience not intended to treat or diagnose... I have plantar faciatis these shoes along with orthotic inserts made walking bearable again. Five pair later (I.work in.an enviroment with.petroleum products that wear the soles) I no longer need the inserts. The price is one tenth the price of custom orthotic shoes. Imho

Great shoe for its cost
I bought this shoe for general use and light hiking. They are nice and firm. I do not like shoes with a lot of cushion built into them.

What happened to Columbia quality?
After four years my Columbia Traverse boots are a little worn. They were the first Columbia shoes I have bought and they have held up well. A trip to Dick's found me surprised at the lack of selection of Columbia foot wear. I settled on the Northbend without trying them on. First mistake. I picked up my usual size, but man these boots felt small. After wearing them for only an hour around the house my feet hurt bad. When I got the Traverse, it was like they were broken in right out of the box. I returned the boots and tried a larger size but they still didnt fit right. Having read some other similar reviews I guess I'll have to try Merrill or Keen.

Very comfortable shoes, great traction and good looks
I had to get these shoes while out in another state since my nikes were falling apart ( go figure!) . I immediately felt the comfort on my feet. I liked them so much, my wife got a pair too.

Nice sneakers for the money
Nice sneakers for the money, very comfortable right out of the box. Looks snazzy too.

The shoe fits well and is super lightweight. I wear them as a running shoe since they have better traction than regular ones.

I sent them back
These shoes were small. I ordered size 14 as that is what size fits me of other brands. I wore them for about 2hr and had to take them off.. too small and not very comfortable. If these are an example of what $50 shoes are supposed to be, its not a good thing.
