Columbia Women’s Newton Ridge Plus - Product Review

Editor's Rating: (3.8 / 5)

Pros

  • Lightweight at only 16 ounces
  • Waterproof full grain leather uppers with Omnishield
  • Inexpensive

Cons

  • The insoles are kind of thin,
  • Very narrow toebox

Our Take:

The Columbia Women’s Newton Ridge Plus Hiking Boot is a stellar, affordable boot that will keep you light on your feet and your wallet.

These boots are absolutely on point with their performance and Columbia’s craftsmanship.

The “Plus” comes from the fact that the back comes up higher on your ankle and will provide plenty of ankle support.

They’re super durable and highly recommended for a number of different settings.

Dry, wet, it doesn’t matter these boots have you covered.

The uppers are made from waterproof full grain leather featuring Omnishield water and stain resistant treatment that adds to their durability and water resistance.

At 16 ounces these boots are lightweight while comfortable and flexible enough to require very minimal breaking in.

They stand up to water very well, just don’t wear them in the lake and you’ll be fine.

The Techlite Cushioning midsole adds plenty of shock absorption.

The Omni-Grip traction on the sole grips the ground and rocks very well and you’ll have plenty of stability along with the comfort these boots offer.

For under $70 these Columbia boots are as good as they get.
