Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am becoming a big fan of Columbia's line of shoes. I bought my first pair probably around 10 years ago and I still have them despite putting them through all kinds of abuse. I have never had shoes last that long! They are also less expensive than competing brands, which makes them an incredible value. Unfortunately that pair is starting to show their age and the footbed is getting a bit compressed and no longer cushions well, so it is time to find a replacement.
Enter the North Plains Trail shoe. After doing a bit of research I landed on these as my prime candidate for replacing my old faithful pair. Unfortunately, I could not find any in stock at any local sporting goods store to try on to see how I liked them. I am very hesitant about buying shoes online (good return policies or not I don't want to deal with the hassle of shipping something back if it doesn't fit well). Despite that I didn't have any other options. I usually wear a size 10, but have on occasion...
I bought a pair of these shoes on Amazon two and a half years ago because my only other pair was some tattered skate shoes. After that much time I decided I needed a replacement pair before they broke. The new shoes arrived yesterday and they are the same as the first pair when they were new. I have never once slipped and fallen in these shoes though I've come close a few times, the tread has more space between grip sections than normal shoes so when you step on smooth rounded rocks on old sidewalks remember they are very slippery when wet but other than that, the treads grip everything in sight. I see people saying these shoes are "water resistant" well they are, just no more than any regular tennis shoe. I use these shoes everyday and that won't change until they stop selling them.
I bought this shoe in December 2013 and finally starting wearing them recently. This is a surprisingly nice shoe for the price if a little short and narrow - for me. Nevertheless they flex well and are not uncomfortable. Added to that they are lightweight which was not what I was expecting from the pix and no information was provided on that aspect. Also the toe is more rounded (than pointed) than expected but again that's no big deal, in fact I prefer that. The sole has great grip altho' I've yet to test on wet grass - I intend to use as a golf shoe as much as everyday. The lacing system allows me to leave it tied (ordinary as-provided laces) and slip in and out of, as I usually like to without any problems. The colors and appearance is attractive and subdued, as I prefer. The shoe seems well-constructed (like my previous long-wearing Sketchers) but only time will tell how they perform. But to date I'm very please with these.
