Updates to Columbia Redmond V2 Mid Waterproof

  • The Columbia Redmond V2 Mid Waterproof is engineered for addressing the many challenges adventurers face on the trail, whether off or on. Its ability to ward off moisture is courtesy of the boot’s seam-sealed construction and brand-exclusive liner.
  • This hiker is the successor to the Redmond Mid Waterproof. Designers made a change to the profile by making it more slender. Its revamped look is largely thanks to its redesigned mid-top upper.
  • It still sports the same Omni-Grip outsole. This time around, however, the heavy-duty lugs scattered around its surface are blockier and engineered with more aggressive angles than those found in the previous model.

Size and fit

Columbia’s Redmond V2 Mid Waterproof is an over-the-ankle hiking shoe for men and women. Its lace-up closure enables users to customize the fit to their preference.


What supplies multi-directional traction in the Redmond V2 Mid Waterproof is the footgear’s Omni-Grip outsole. It is made of a rubber compound that grants sufficient slip and skid resistance on different types of surfaces, whether wet or dry. It comes built with grippy lugs to give outdoorsy men and women a secure footing over soft terrain.


The Columbia Redmond V2 Mid Waterproof has a lightweight midsole called Techlite for cushioning and stability. It has a stout yet cushy heel zone to provide adventurers with enough shock absorption upon every landing. Columbia designers built it extra flexible around the arch, making transitions an even more comfortable experience.

A removable footbed sits snugly on top of the shoe’s midsole. Its presence delivers not only added comfort but also enhanced underfoot support.


Suede leather and mesh fabric make up the Redmond V2 Mid Waterproof’s mid-cut shell. It comes equipped with the Omni-Tech liner, making its confines adequately watertight. Protection from knocks and bumps is sourced from its randed toe box. A similar covering is found around its heel for enhanced rearfoot support. Loops for eyelets and a synthetic lace complete its fit management system
