  • Columbia Redmond features a mix of breathability and lightness. It comes equipped with a combination of suede leather, mesh and webbing upper to keep the feet cool.
  • The brand also emphasizes surefootedness. This is achieved by giving the Redmond a midsole that brings ample support and a proprietary outsole that grips on various trail conditions.

Columbia Redmond is a relatively true-to-size lightweight hiker for men and women. It is offered in full and half sizes. The women’s version is available in standard width while the men’s version comes in wide and standard. It has a traditional lace-up closure that allows for a customized fit.

Columbia equips the Redmond with an outsole called Omni-Grip. This proprietary traction solution fuses log zones and rubber compounds to provide ample grip on a variety of surfaces including rocks, loose gravel, and water areas. It also moderately extends to the front of the shoe for added abrasion protection.

The TechLite midsole of the Redmond grants wearers comfort and cushioning throughout their hike. TechLite is a lightweight midsole unit developed by Columbia designed to increase impact absorption and energy return. 

This hiker from Columbia combines suede leather, mesh and webbing. It is a shoe designed for summer and warm day hikes with its mesh in the toe area that allows air to circulate. Adding more comfort are the padded tongue and collar. A toe cap protects from abrasion while a heel pull loop makes for an easy on and off.  The front closure includes combination eyelets and ghillie lacing.
