Size and fit

Outsole

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.

Midsole

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. 

Upper

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.
