User Review: Columbia Men's Switchback Omni-Tech
Price Paid: $67
Quite a comfortable shoe. The inside felt like an extra sock. I have wide feet, but this shoe gave me a lot of room.
It takes me a long time to find shoes because most hurt my feet or are too tight. Not this one. The soles are made to help with traction, and I agree since they are made with a sticky material. I am able to walk on moist moss covered rocks and stay upright.
One of my normal hiking trails hugs a mountain cliff with water coming down on the rocks I walk on. These shoes met the challenge. I feet also stayed warm and dry in 30 degree, rainy weather.
The only gripe I have is the material for the bottom of the shoes smells quite bad when brand new, I had to air them out overnight on the porch.
The shoe beats out North Face's rival product by a long shot.
