Ah, the joy of buying winter boots for kids. They have to fit through March, they have to be able to put them on and off themselves, and they need to be waterproof – no wet socks this winter, please!
Best Multi-Season Boot
Bogs – yes, they are on the higher price point end, but they do more than just winter. They are rainboots, fall boots, spring boots – and winter boots to -30 degrees. No wonder they're so popular! They come in a wide range of styles and colours, and are super easy to put on with their pull handle tops.
Best adjustable fit
Cougar Score boots bring back memories for many a mama – but they've gotten some snazzy updates over the years. Waterproof and cosy, with a plush lining and a durable sole. Velcro straps for adjustability and a snug fit.
Best value waterproof
Kamik Snobuster has the best of both worlds, for a great price. A rubber boot outer that can be worn on it's own – then add a liner to get an -32 degree active temperature rating. Boots come complete with removable liners and are fully waterproof. Available through MEC.
Easy on and Off
Sorel's Commander boots have a single pull closure at the top to keep snow and cold out. Insulated upper and rubber shell keep snow at bay and toes toasty!
Yes, Crocs has winter boots! These Kids Winter Puff Boots are lightweight but designed for the coldest temperatures. Easy to walk in and easy to pull on.
Best extra insurance
When you've got small kids trudging around in knee-deep snow, a guaranteed way to keep the snow out is by adding a Mountain Equipment Coop Gaiter to their boots. They are easy to put on with drawstrings at top and bottom, velcro to close them up, hook under the boot – and provide a fully waterproof barrier from knee to toe!
