The Best Snow Boots for Kids – Keep Your Child’s Feet Dry and Warm!

Snow Boots For Babies

Have you been looking for a pair of good snow boots to keep your child’s feet warm and dry during the winter season? If you want your children to be able to go out and play without their feet getting cold and wet, you must provide them with a pair of waterproof and insulated snow boots for their feet.

In addition to being waterproof and insulated, the snow boots must fit the shape of your child’s feet perfectly. Not all children have a medium width foot. Some children have narrow, wide, or extra wide feet, and you need to make sure that the snow boots are able to accommodate your child’s foot shape.

You also need to make sure that you get your child’s snow boots in the correct size. Even though snow boots are meant to be worn for a couple of hours, if you fit them too long or too short you will end up creating all sort of foot issues to your child’s feet such as blisters, calluses, and corns.

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now.  This experience has afforded me many insights into children’s shoes and the way they fit.  Our store specializes in shoes for children with foot and leg problems, but provide regular shoe fittings as well. From my experience fitting hundreds of kids, I have become familiar with the best snow boots for kids.

Let’s take a look at what features a snow boot must provide in order to keep your child’s feet and legs healthy:

✅ The snow boot must be waterproof in order to keep your child’s feet dry.

✅ The snow boot must be insulated  in order to keep your child’s feet warm. It’s recommended that your kids’ snow boots should be temperature rated to at least -30 Fahrenheit.

✅ The snow boot must be lightweight in order to prevent your child’s feet and legs from getting tired.

✅ The snow boot must provide good traction in order to prevent your child from slipping and falling down.

If we find a snow boot that provides all of the following features, your child will be good to go! However, I am always emphasizing to parents how it doesn’t matter how many features a particular shoe style provides, if the shoes are not fitted properly, the child won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer.

I always recommend parents to have their children’s feet properly measured at their local children’s shoe store, where a shoe fitter can find the perfect pair of shoes for your child. The issue is that most parents don’t have a local kids’ shoe store in their area, and they must end up purchasing their kids’ shoes online.

I created a map that describes the best fitting children’s shoe stores by state,  so you should start by taking a look at that map. Go to the link below:

If you still can’t seem to find a store in your area, then proceed to reading an article where I describe the simplest and most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home. Go to the link below:

Now that you know how to figure out your child’s exact foot size, let’s take a look at the most popular snow boot brands and styles for kids.

The Best Snow Boot Brands for Kids – Kamik and Bogs!

At the shoe store that I work for, we sell a couple of different snow boot brands that include Kamik, Bogs, Tundra, and Sorel.

Among these brands, there are two styles that have proven to be more consistent when it comes to manufacturing good quality snow boots for children.

✅ Kamik manufacturers snow boots that are 100% waterproof, insulated, and some of them come with a removable liner. The fact that certain Kamik snow boot styles come with a removable liner makes Kamik snow boots extremely versatile as they can be worn as rain boots as well.

A lot of parents are skeptical of providing their children with snow boots because they don’t want to take the chance of buying a piece of footwear that their children might not even wear in case it doesn’t snow. If you buy a snow boot that comes with a removable liner your child will get good use out of them during the rainy days.

✅ Bogs manufactures some of the best snow boots for toddlers. Bogs snow boots are some of the lightest and most flexible ones. These boots don’t come with a liner, they are just insulated rain boots that are meant to be worn in the snow or in the rain. The other great advantage of Bogs snow boot is that they are lightweight, flexible, and they come with handles, so your child can easy pull them on and take them off.

I want to clarify that even though these are the 2 most popular snow boots brands for kids, there are certain snow boot styles among these 2 shoe brands that are better than others, and I have put them together below.

Children Waterproof Snow Boots

Like I mentioned before, a good pair of snow boots must be lightweight, flexible, provide good traction and fit the shape of your child’s feet perfectly.

I only review shoe styles that I have fitted before, as that is the only way for me to tell how supportive and durable the shoes are as well as how they fit.

In order to allow for growing room, I highly recommend that parents order these boots a whole size larger than the size their children’s feet measure. This translates to 0.6 inches or 1 centimeter of space between your child’s longest toe and the end of the shoes. If you leave the correct amount of growing room for your child, these boots will last for more than one season.

The snow boots made by Kamik are all waterproof and they are the ones that come with a removable liner. The boots also feature a thermal insole which provides extra protection from the cold, a reflective patch for visibility at night, and an outsole with great traction that grips on snow and ice and will prevent your child from falling down. The Kamik styles also feature an adjustable bungee-cord closure, which will make it really easy for your child to get the boots on and off.

The snow boots made by Bogs are also waterproof and made from high quality materials for maximum durability. These snow boots can also be used as rain boots.

How to Figure Out Your Child’s Snow Boot Size? – Let’s Find Out!

Snow boots are not available in half sizes, they are available in whole sizes only, and I always recommend rounding up. For example:

  • If your child measures a foot size 10 in the foot measuring scale you have to provide your child with a boot size 11 in order to allow for growing room.
  • If your child measures a foot size 10 1/2, then you have to provide your child with a boot size 12.

Makes sense?

If your child happens to have wide or extra wide feet, you will need to find a pair of snow boots with a rounder toe-box and extra depth in order to prevent your child’s toes from overlapping one another or rubbing against the side of the boots.
