Get back to basics with the durable Columbia Women's Redmond Hiking Shoe. Built to handle daily jaunts through the woods and epic ascents alike, it features a Techlite midsole for lightweight cushioning and high energy return that puts a little extra spring in your step. Suede and mesh work together in the upper to offer the right combination of breathability and durability. Aggressive lugs on the Omni-Grip outsole ensures reliable traction on wet trails and tricky terrain.
- Suede, leather, mesh, and webbing upper
- Techlite midsole
- Omni-Grip non-marking traction rubber outsole
- Aggressive lugs
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My first impressions are that these aren't super comfortable. They rubbed my achilles and felt a little funny. That has improved with wear. They effectively have no arch support though. If this is something you need, you should know you will need to purchase separate soles.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 8.5
Probably the most lightweight, most comfortable, hiking shoe I have owned. I hate boots, my ankles like to be free, these shoes did their job and are still going strong!
