User Review: Columbia Men's Switchback Omni-Tech
Price Paid: $60 or so
This shoe literally is the most comfortable, lightest shoe i have ever owned, I was about 6 weeks post
Achilles surgery and my Walmart sneakers "white" were killing my feet. I had to spend the next 3 days at a conference and walk around. So we went to Bass Pro.. Immediately upon walking with these shoes, it was like walking on a cloud.. no pain, no pressure points.. I insisted on wearing them out the door.
Now i am about 7 months post, and the comfort is still wonderful. The only downside is that the laces come untied unless i do the Sesame Street knot.. lol.. I would like to say these shoes saved my life, but that would be kinda corny.
Update: December 10, 2011
I have had these shoes for more than a year, the tread is still good, light as ever, easily washed and dried. They are showing a bit of wear inside the heel pocket.. nothing serious.
Still the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.. surprisingly durable.
