For context, I had very low expectations of these boots when I purchased them for my 5 year old. I'm not a huge fan of the Columbia brand and the price point seemed on the lower end. The reason I went this direction was that kids out grow shoes so fast and I didn't want to spend a huge amount on a boot that isn't worn everyday. When the boots arrived from the very beginning I didn't like the wool feeling insert they use for warmth. I was afraid it wouldn't be warm enough and it might cause his legs to itch. My son now has used these probably 4-6 times playing pretty hard in the snow. I am very surprised at how nice they actually are. First, they are very easy to get on and off. Two, they fit really nice even with a thick sock. Three, they keep my son's feet dry and warm. Lastly, and probably to most important is my son doesn't even notice or say anything about them (This is unusual). He just puts them on and goes out and plays in the snow. Overall this boot is a great value.

My wife bought these for a casual shoe that she can wear while running the kids around or light exercise. She absolutely loves them. She requires a shoe with a lot of support when doing heavier exercise or she would absolutely use these for everything. A year ago she bought these http://www.backcountry.com/new-balance-101-trail-running-shoe-womens for the same purpose and said although she likes them both she would pick the Merrell next time around. She wears a 9 in the Merrell but a 9.5 in the New balance shoe. The Merrell breaths a little bit better. For her intense workouts she picked these http://www.backcountry.com/asics-gt-2000-running-shoe-womens. Hope this review helps.

So we bought these shoes for my 5 year old because he needed dry shoes for the classroom. My son who is really picky about everything doesn't seem to mind them. I had him wear these shoes everyday for about a week and this is where the short comings of the shoe came to light. This shoe is great for non active situations because they are comfortable and easy to get on and off and my son really liked them. On the flip side these are pretty cheaply made and my son's heel once in awhile would slide out if he was running around. So, in summary these shoes are working great for what I bought them for, but definitely not a shoe that will hold up to everyday kid usage.

I'm am not writing this because I work for Backcountry because I ran in this shoe long before I started here. This is the best road shoe I have yet to run in. For context, I'm 37 years old and I've been running since I was a young kid and ran competitively at a division one college. I've ran this shoe in all kinds of training runs and everything from 5K to marathon races. The models stay pretty consistent over the past 6 years. The things I like best about this shoe is it is very breathable so my feet never get too hot on really hot days and the weight feels just right. I have a pretty standard running style which means I don't over or under pronate and have strong ankles so I don't need much stability. The shoe has plenty of space in the toe box because nothing is more frustrating than getting a blister on the top of the toes. I bought the blue model this year and gotten so many comments on how neat they look. Lastly, this shoe is first and foremost a road running shoe. I've been getting into trail running lately and used this once or twice on the trail but the sole is just a little bit to soft and rocks would sometimes hit the top of my toes so this is definitely meant for road. I do like this shoe so much though that I'm still trying to find a trail shoe that fits and feels like this road shoe.
