Gear Review: Hiking Boots (Mens) – Columbia Newton Ridge Plus
When Crystal and I decided to take up backpacking many years ago, I went to all the outdoor stores looking for hiking boots; REI, Bass Pro Shop, Cabela’s, Gander Mountain, etc. The problem was I’m huge, 6’6″, and wear a size 15, and most of these places didn’t carry anything in my size at their brick and mortar stores, only online. Now if any of you have ever ordered shoes online without trying them on you know it can be a scary proposition since shoes are all about comfort especially when they’re for hiking. But I went out on a limb and ordered a pair of Columbia Newton Ridge Plus hiking boots and I’m glad I did.
