Have you been looking for a pair of waterproof boots for your girl? Do you want to provide her with a pair of fashionable looking boots that at the same time will keep her feet and legs dry and warm?
I have been helping parents find the correct type of shoes for their children online for the last three years, so if you ever have trouble finding a particular shoe style for your child I will help you find it.
I want you to remember one thing: It doesn’t matter how wide or how narrow your kids’ feet are, there is at least one shoe style out there that will fit the shape of his or her perfectly, and I will HELP you find it.
I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics for ten years at a premier children’s shoe store specializing in proper fit for over forty years. We specialize in children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fitting as well. It’s important for us to carry top quality shoes that are available in different widths, since that’s the only way we can guarantee to FIT every single child.
I decided to create a post about the best waterproof boots for girls since several parents have contacted me asking which bare the best waterproof boots for girls.
Keeping your kids’ feet dry and warm (especially during the winter season), is extremely important in order to keep your kids’ feet healthy and also keep them dry and warm from the weather conditions.
It won’t matter how many times you ask your child to avoid jumping on a puddle, when they see one, kids can’t resist to jump in there.
Just so you know, in order for the boot to be waterproof it must come with a label stating that it is waterproof. If it doesn’t have the label, it’s not waterproof.
Did you know that most children won’t speak up when their feet get wet? Walking around with wet feet all day can lead to several foot issues.
Besides coming with the waterproof label, the boots must also be supportive in order for your child to wear them for most of the day.
I will show you in this post the best waterproof boots for girls that I have fitted before. I will also be able to tell you how that particular boots fits (short, long, narrow, wide).
It doesn’t matter how many features a particular shoe style has to provide for your child, if it’s not fitted properly (the correct shoe length and the correct shoe width), your child won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer.
If you are not sure whether your child is wearing the correct shoe size or not, START by reading a post I wrote where I describe the most simple and effective way to make sure your child is wearing the correct shoe size:
The Advantages Of Waterproof Boots – Warm/Dry Feet!
Providing your child with a pair of waterproof boots has several advantages. Let’s take a look at those advantages here:
- They will keep your kids’ feet dry: The number one advantage of waterproof boots is how they will keep your kids’ feet dry and warm. Waterproof boots are designed with a special lining that will prevent water from coming into the shoe. As a result, your kids’ feet stay dry and comfortable.
- They will prevent blisters: When your kids’ feet become wet, they are more prone to developing a blister since their skin becomes softer and more susceptible to rubbing against the shoe.
- They will prevent your kids’ feet from catching a cold: If your kids become wet on a cold day then this will not only make them uncomfortable, but it can also lead to them catching a cold.
Most parents are not aware that our feet are like a conduit to the body, and the temperature of our feet usually determines the temperature of our entire body!
How Can I Tell If The Boot Is Waterproof?
Don’t confuse water-resistant boots with waterproof boots. A water-resistant boot will prevent your child’s feet from getting wet when they are walking in wet grass for example.
If it’s a rainy day or your child decides to step on a puddle, a water-resistant boot will not prevent your kids’ feet from getting wet.
Like I mentioned before, the only way to tell if a particular boot is waterproof is to check if it has a label with the word “waterproof”.
Take a look at the picture below for clarification and notice how the label states “waterpoof”:
Now that you know what particular features a waterproof boot must provide and how to tell when a boot is actually waterproof, you are ready to take a selection of the best waterproof boots for girls.
The Best Waterproof Boots – The Secret Revealed!
It is easy to get overwhelmed when you see a big selection of waterproof boots for kids, since it makes it hard to figure out which are the best type for your unique kids’ feet.
The waterproof boots that I will describe here will also provide good support to your child’s feet (this doesn’t mean that they can be worn as everyday shoes). Your child will be able to wear this boots for a maximum of 6 hours a day, and then I recommend switching watch to her regular everyday sneakers.
I always recommend parents to take their children to their local shoe store, where an experienced shoe fitter can properly measure their feet and finds shoes accordingly. The issue is that most parents don’t have a local children’s shoe store that they trust, so they must purchase their kids’ shoes online.
If you are one of those parents, please find below the best selection of waterproof boots for girls. The boots described below will fit a girl with a medium or a wide foot:
This selection of waterproof boots all fit “short”, which means that you only need to go a whole size longer of the size that your girl measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.
If you have a girl with narrow feet, you should look at the selection of boots described below since they all fit in the narrow side:
This selection of boots all fit “short”, which means that you will have to go a whole size longer of the size that your girl measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room.

Don’t Forget About The Socks! – Keep Your Kids’ Feet Comfortable!
Did you know that socks play a huge role when it comes to keeping our kids feet healthy? I always explain to parents how socks act as barrier between our kids’ feet and the shoes, preventing infections and the build-up of bacteria inside the shoe.
Socks can also prevent blisters around our kids toes and ankles by preventing the toes from rubbing against certain areas of the shoe.
Several parents have contacted me concerned about their children refusing to wear socks, since they seem to feel every bump and lump and can’t stand the way they feel. It’s important to help them understand they must wear socks with their shoes, and that’s why I created a post where I describe the best seamless socks for kids. Some parents call this socks the “magical socks”, since children love the way they feel.
While I can’t get into too much detail about the importance of seamless socks in this post, take a look at another post I wrote where I describe the best seamless socks for children:
