Columbia Women’s Newton Ridge Hiking Boots

“Last summer, my friends and I went on a last-minute camping trip that involved lots of steep hiking trails that my everyday running sneakers were not equipped for, so I needed proper hiking boots. I landed on these popular Columbia Newton Ridge Boots because of their price point and thousands of glowing reviews, and I can happily say they live up to the hype. They arrived the day before we left and didn’t even need a break-in period to feel comfortable. Plus, their traction is super grippy and makes me feel confident on the downhill parts of hikes.” — Emily Belfiore, Commerce Writer
