The Columbia Conspiracy Titanium Outdry
I knew from the moment I put these on my feet that I was going to like them. My confidence grew with each step uphill during my hikes due to the sticky rubber outsole.
The outsole is constructed with a specific lug pattern to help on the ups and downs of a hike. The secure fit at the heel thanks to a structured and snug heel counter kept me stable on the decent of my hikes. I’m always conscious about having enough toe wiggle room because shoes with a tight toe box have always bothered my toes. That was not the case with these shoes as the generous toe box allowed me to splay my toes the way I like to.
After testing out the Columbia Conspiracy Titanium Outdry out of the box I decided to test them out with my full-length custom orthotics. Having a removable shoe insert made it a breeze to wear my orthotics in them without compromising fit and comfort.
I wouldn’t want to trail run in these shoes as they are too bulky and less responsive with speed; however, they are still light enough for those casual outings when you need to protect your feet from rainy Vancouver. While I wouldn’t call these an indoor mall walking shoe, but they feel very comfortable on a couple of family trips through the mall.
Overall, the Columbia Conspiracy Titanium Outdry is a very durable, yet comfortable shoe for your day hikes, even with a lightweight pack. I recommend that you try this shoe and thank your feet later.
This is a great shoe that gave me confidence while hiking up and down a mountain. Also great for keeping my feet dry on rainy days.
