Not resolved

I bought a pair of Columbia "Titanium" winter boots which feature a waterproof rubber front toe that is sewn to the leather upper material.

The weak point of these boots is exactly that seam between the rubber front and the leather: After just a few weeks of wear in frosty conditions, the SEAM CAME APART on BOTH BOOTS !!!

As a consequence, I now have a big gap on both boots just where snow and ice accumulate on top of the boot and water easily penetrates the boot - I constantly have wet feet !!!

What a *** boot !!!!!

Don't buy this product !!!!!

Monetary Loss: $150.

Had an Experience with Columbia Sportswear?

I also have the same problem.They look great but for the price should not fall apart.

Mine just totally came apart also. Women's boots worn maybe 12 times as most. Columbia didn't back and I also put a review on this site.

I agree that these boots are useless.Both boots cracked at the rubber junction as well of both boots separated on the back at the junction of the rubber and leather.

When I contacted Columbia all they wanted to do was give me a 15% discount on my next purchase. They were not interested in accepting the pictures I wanted to send but kept sending me emails to rate their customer service. What service?

From what I see on the web this is a common problem with these boots.I recommend NOT dealing with Columbia ever again.


Me too this is a defect. This is not stitching coming apart, this is the material stitched together tearing apart

Mine are a while lot worse and I've only worn them about 25 times for snowmobiling and walking the dog.I wish I was able to post pictures to show you.

They said lifetime warranty on outer wear.

But boots aren't considered outer wear.He said I can pay to ship them probably to have them tell me they won't cover them.

I also have had a bad experience with Columbia Titanium boots; same problem with splitting and cracking above the toe along the rubber/leather seam. I got no satisfaction from the warranty process. I will not buy Columbia products.
