Best Waterproof Hiking Boots

The Best Waterproof Hiking Boots for Kids ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Please keep in mind that I only review shoe styles that I have fitted before, since that is the only way for me to tell how well-made the shoes are, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit.

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now, and I know everything that relates to children’s shoes and the way they FIT. This is a specialized shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. I am familiar with the best shoe brands and the best shoe styles among those brands from having fitted them before.

All of the hiking boots that I will describe below are waterproof, supportive, lightweight, flexible, and durable. They also provide good traction that will reduce the likelihood of your child from slipping and falling down.

Some of these hiking boot styles will fit a child with wide or extra wide feet.

Disclosure: Keep in mind that we may receive commissions when you click our links and make purchases.

If you need any other type of shoes such as every day, summer, winter, or sport shoes, you can find them all in a tool I created which lets you filter by the type of shoes you need. This tool is extremely effective since it will show you shoes in different widths such as narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide. I also tell you exactly how each shoe style fits (short, long, narrow, or wide) and will let you filter by the instep of your child’s foot. You can even find shoes that will accommodate an orthotic. You can find that tool here:
