If it's true that experience brings wisdom, then Columbia Sportswear’s more than 70 years in business should mean we know a thing or two about making great outdoor gear. We like to think so.

We enjoy the outdoors as much as you do, which means we know what you need. We know that being cold and wet is no fun. Blue eyes may be sexy, but blue lips aren't. And, while a sunny day is excellent, sunburn sucks. That's why we make high-quality performance products that keep you comfortable and protected, no matter where your excursions take you.

The outdoors isn't all about remote expeditions or climbing the world's highest mountains. Anyone can enjoy the outdoors. It's easy. Just open the door and go outside. When everyone participates, the great outdoors becomes the Greater Outdoors. From the mountain peak to the neighborhood park, from the glacier to the garden, and from the Tour de France to training wheels, Columbia helps you enjoy your outdoor adventure anywhere you like to play.

At Columbia Sportswear, we are committed to building a company of which we can all be proud – not only of the innovative products we create and the financial results we achieve, but the manner in which we achieve them. Whether it’s responsible sourcing, giving back to our communities, or reducing our environmental impact, we believe corporate responsibility is a companywide effort.

We have three key initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to support outdoor education and conservation. Each of these projects includes multiple partners, international scope, and address critical global issues at a local level. Please see the descriptions below to learn more about these dynamic partnerships.

Great snow boots!
I haven't been able to fully test these out yet because it's so late in the season! But these boots are very warm, met my expectations. I would say they definitely run on the small size, so I ordered 1/2 size larger and am glad I did!
Warm feet with Omni Heat
This year for Christmas, Santa brought my hubby Columbia Omni Heat slippers. This was the first year ever, EVER, that he was excited... ok.. happy, about getting Christmas slippers. Why you ask ? Because he has Omni Heat Boots & knows the Omni Heat works to keep his feet warm. The slippers are cushioned & well made. Width wise they area bit roomy. They have a sole that you could walk outside to the mail box & not worry. Warm feet = happy hubby !
Iowa winter tested
Iowa winters can be brutally cold. My poor husband's feet would freeze when he would snow-blow the driveway. Since my daughter & I love the Columbia Omni Heat boots, I decided to get him this pair. The look of doubt was all over his face when I gave him his boots. be fair, he has several pair of boots to wear when removing the snow. They just don't keep his feet warm. He was thinking new boots- $$$- cold feet. He came inside after spending over 2 hours snow-blowing, shoveling & chipping ice with a sheepish smile on his face. He couldn't believe it, he had warm feet ! Warm & dry feet. And he said they are comfortable too ! He now has 2 pair of Omni Heat Boots ~ he's a believer !
Warm cozy feet !
Easy on & easy off. Stylish & warm. Comfy & cozy. Lots of colors ! Did I mention I LOVE Columbia Omni Heat boots ? Seriously folks, these boots do keep your feet warm without wearing heavy thick wool socks. Living in Iowa, I go for warm boots first with great tread ahead of stylish boots. These give me everything I want.... warm feet, tread I'm confident with... and they are super comfy & stylish. Score !

Does the thought of hiking a local mountain bring you great joy? Does just thinking about paddle-boarding at your state park bring a smile to your face? Us too, and that's why we love Columbia. Their ultimate motive is to bring you the materials you need to enjoy the outdoors to the fullest. Whether that means making the best GORE-TEX waterproof hiking boots or great water shoes, Columbia shoes have you covered for those outdoor excursions you know and love.


Even better... Columbia continues to be a family-owned and operated business for more than 70 years. Their experience in the outdoor realm is testament to the quality of their products and the knowledge that's so obviously packed behind them. Their years of outdoor fun makes Columbia experts in performance gear and shoes. They also realize that every excursion doesn't have to be a remote expedition... you merely have to step outside your front door to experience the amazing fresh air of the outdoors. That's why they've created awesome casual shoes to get you where you want to go, dry, comfortable and happy.


While Columbia sells internationally, they're based in the local Pacific Northwest, surrounded by tall trees, majestic forests and a rugged coast.
