Columbia Gunnison II Omni-Heat: Bringing the campfire wherever you go

There should be no more excuse to miss the outside world if you have this winter boot in tow. Yes, in the Gunnison II Omni-Heat, navigating icy trails with triumphant, toasty feet is the name of the game. And this game is made possible by the following:

  • The boot’s inner walls and flooring (underneath the removable footbed) are all lined with a reflective coating, essentially giving the foot 360-degree protection from the biting cold.
  • Speaking of the shoe’s footbed, Columbia engineers gave it an extra-wooly texture to help the liner lock in even more warmth underfoot.
  • With the boot’s 200 g worth of insulation, it can keep you cozy in temperatures as low as -25°F. This means that the Columbia Gunnison II Omni-Heat is a competent hiker in most Northern States during winter.

  • Consider the high-cut Columbia Bugaboot III if adventuring in the snow with the most ankle (even lower calf?) support is your thing.
