Columbia Bahama Vent Relaxed Review
Columbia has been making exceptional quality products for outdoor enthusiasts for over 80 years. Based out of Portland, Oregon, the company produces footwear, apparel, and other accessories to ensure that you stay protected no matter what adventure you are on. They are set apart from the rest thanks to their innovative gear and hardworking and passionate employees.
Their products are sold all around the world, and they are still going strong today. If you are someone who enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, golfing, running, or just about anything else done outdoors, then Columbia is sure to have a product that is right for you.
The Columbia Bahama Vent Relaxed fishing shoes are just another one of their long line of products aimed to please those who enjoy being out in the fresh air. If you are a fisher and want a great pair of shoes that will not only look great but have decent functionality, then you have come to the right place. The water and stain resistant uppers combined with the drainage holes in the sole help keep your feet as dry as possible while donning a fishing rod.
They are pretty comfortable too, thanks mostly to the cushioned midsole and the extra layer of padding in the removable insole. The biggest downfall, however, is the sizing. They appear to run reasonably narrow, even in the wide sizes, so if you are wide feet, then they might not be the best fit for your feet. Overall, though, they are a great product and have an affordable price tag that many customers admire.

There is not a whole lot of versatility to the sneakers. They can look good as a pair of casual shoes, but they really fit in when you are hitting the docks or taking a fishing trip. They have the look and functionality of something that you would wear around the water. The slip-on design with the lacing accents gives them a more casual look that will fit in during your everyday lives, but customers tend to stick to the water with them.
When it comes to arch support, there is a moderate amount provided in these sneakers. There is a cushioned midsole and a removable insole that your feet sit on top of which can give you some much-desired underfoot padding, including some under your arches. Some people who have rather high arches might want to consider swapping out the insoles for something better suited for their needs, but right out of the box they will be able to cater to a vast majority of their customers.
