Durable and Warm
- Fit: Runs large
I bought these boots for my older son when he grew out of the Snowbug style. We have owned these boots for a 2 years and they are worn daily from November to sometimes March or April as my son uses them not only for snowy day hikes but also his daily shoe for school, outings, and more.
I was skeptical at first wit the way they just pull on (the Snowbugs fold over all the way to get the foot in) but they were surprisingly much easier for my son to put on himself. Just pull on and go!
We didn't utilzie the cinch much since we typically put the snow pants or sweat pants right over the boot. This is a great feature though for keeping snow from falling into the top of the boot.
They boots run big but that wasn't an issue because we could use heavier socks and the Velcro feature at the bottom allows you to tighten right at the top part of foot, which prevents slipping. This is great for growing into as well. My son has never had an issue walking in these and they have been great for him keeping his feet down when he walks. The tops are not waterproof but again we have never had an issue of them getting soaked through.
They have held up for 2 winters (10 months approximately) and will be passed down to his little brother for more winter use this year. This is a great boot if you have an active child who loves to be outside all the time.
