Questions & Answers for Columbia Columbia® Packus Ridge™ Omni-Tech® Hiking Shoes for Ladies


it says the liner is waterproof, what about the whole boot?

I have to stand in water a lot and work in it all the other times so I need a very good waterproof boot. Not to mention I'm tired of those fat tounges. I want one that huge my ankle so the water doesn't go down into my shoe. The fat tongues make it hard to even stay tied.

these have fat tongues. You may prefer a gortex waterproof boot for your particular situation. This leather will saturate in standing water.
