Winter boots need to be two things: warm and waterproof (not just water resistant). If they’re easy to pull on and off, terrific. If they’re cute and the kids like them, super. If they last more than one season, hallelujah. But above all, they need to keep those little piggies warm and dry.
If you’re in the market for a new pair this season, here are a few of our favourite kids winter boots:
The Avery and Pinetree styles for girls, and Jet and Mustang for boys are lace-up boots with drawstring and toggle, and comfort rated for -40 C. The arctic rubber base makes for good treads and the multi-layer removable inner-boot system allows for temperature regulation because, fortunately, not every day requires -40 protection.
Orders placed directly from Baffin.com will ship for approximately $10 in Canada (depending on exact location), and are eligible for a full refund inside of 30 days if something isn’t right.
Starting at $94.99
Available in toddler size 7 to youth size 6, with a temperature rating of up to -30 C, not only are they legitimately waterproof and warm, but they also come in a variety of cute colours and patterns and are equipped with handles so they’re easy to get on and off. Bogs usually hold up over multiple seasons, which can make the investment worthwhile.
At a weight of two pounds per pair, some kids find them too heavy, but the company offers a 100% guarantee so if you don’t try before you buy, return them for a full refund. Bogsfootwear.ca offers free shipping and returns.
Starting at $95
Available in children’s sizes 8-13 and youth 1-6, these boots are practical, versatile and affordable. Girls styles come in black/pink and grape, and boys in navy and black/green. They’re 100% waterproof and have an adjustable snow collar with drawstring and toggle which testers swear is the key to keeping snow out and feet dry.
