Rated 5 out of 5 by SeanMN Great, comfortable hiking shoe.
I bought these to replace a pair of Peakfreak XCRSN XCEL low OutDry Trail Shoes (first iteration) which I loved. I decided to go from a low to a mid top for extra ankle support on tougher hikes.
I originally was going to go for the leather version of the shoe, but opted to get this version instead as it was a bit lighter weight (13.9 ounces vs 16.4 for the leather)
On sizing, I'm usually between a 10.5 and 11, more often an 11. In this case the 10.5 fit much better which is why I indicated they fit slightly large. My foot is normal to slightly wide, and they fit well in that regard.
This has been a fantastic hiking shoe so far. I've found it to offer great support and comfort on several fairly intense day long hikes. After owner the first iteration of Peakfreak XCRSN shoes, and trying on several other pairs at the Columbia store, these Peakfreak XCRSN II are my favorite that Columbia makes. I haven't noticed them to be too hot/warm; overall I think they keep my feet a decent temperature. The tread have shown to have really great grip on a variety of different surfaces (snow, rock, gravel, wet stone, etc). They even work well if you're wearing them as your daily shoe.
Columbia's waterproofing tech, Outdry, is amazing. I've put it to the test several times, walking through streams 3-4 inches deep and my feet have remained completely dry. Down the road when it comes time to replace these, I'll definitely be getting another Outdry product.
Overall a great waterproof hiking shoe that can also be worn daily.

I purchased several shoes from Columbia and this is best shoes I ever bought it. Recently I purchased two different style but similar shoes however this is best feel and nice to wear it. I will definitely buy again same shoes if they continue to make this one.

I was told I needed an ankle brace. Ankle braces generally don't work well. While looking for an alternative, Columbia sportswear provided one. A high top hiking boot. It comes up over the ankle bone and can be laced up to provide the needed support.
I wear one size in woman's shoes (8 1/2) and a different size in men's shoes (7 1/2).
Men's shoes often fit me better than woman's shoes.
These trail shoes have a low tread and are much lighter in weight than my previous hiking boot. I think lighter weight high tops are the way to go. These are also waterproof. That's an added plus in the wet Northwest.
