Columbia Coremic Ridge Mid
Bar none these are the worst boot I have ever worn…
Materials: Leather, Gore-Tex,
Use: Medium Trail Conditions, Medium Weight Pack, Short to Long Hikes
Break-in Period: 2 weeks daily use with some short day hikes (my normal)
Weight: 2 lb. 13 oz.
Price Paid: $55
Bar none these are the worst boot I have ever worn next to my issued jungle boots.
I had what I feel to be a sufficient break-in period (for me anyway). They were comfortable all the way through the break-in and even the first day of a long hike they were comfortable, but I had one blister and by the second day I had 2 more blisters a total of 3 blisters.
I figured maybe I didn't do a good enough break-in, so on the next hike after my blisters healed I did a similar hike and had 2 more blisters.
I would NOT recommend these boots to anyone for hiking.
