Comments about Columbia Hells Peak Outdry Hiking Boots - Men's - 2011 Closeout:
I haven't had a chance to go on a long hike, yet, so this is just a first impression. The boots seem solid and durable, they're mostly comfortable, but they bite a bit at the top. Otherwise, they're comfortable and warm.
I only have a couple of complaints, so far. First, there are only 5 sets of eyelets/hooks for the laces. My running shoes have 6! This makes precise tightening nearly impossible. I have to just cinch them down and hope. Second, they are heavier than I expected. If it turns out that they are particularly durable and supportive on rough trails, I'll take this one back.
Feels true to size
Feels true to width
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
