The Difference Between Waterproof and Water-Friendly Boots

Parents need to understand that there is a big difference between waterproof and water-friendly boots. Waterproof means that water won’t penetrate inside of your kids’ boots, while water-friendly means that water won’t penetrate inside your kids’ boots as long as your child doesn’t step into a puddle or walks on wet surfaces for long periods of time.

It doesn’t matter how many times you ask your child to avoid jumping on a puddle, when kids see one, they simply can’t help jumping on it!

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.

Just so you know, for the boot to be waterproof it must come with a label that reads “waterproof”. If it doesn’t have the label, it’s not waterproof, I will expand on this shortly.

You must keep your kids’ feet dry and warm – especially during the winter season. There is only a small selection of waterproof boots for kids that are supportive and lightweight and flexible at the same time, but the good news is that I will help you find them.

Girls are particular about what they wear on their feet, so the boots need to be waterproof but somewhat stylish at the same time.


What Makes the Waterproof Boots I Recommend Special for Girls?

Let’s take a look at the 3 most important advantages of providing your child with a pair of the boots I recommend:

1️⃣ They help keep your kids’ feet dry: The number one advantage of waterproof boots is that they will keep your kids’ feet dry and warm. Waterproof boots are designed with a special lining that helps prevent water from coming inside the shoe. As a result, your kids’ feet will stay dry and comfortable.

2️⃣ They help prevent blisters: When your kids’ feet become wet, they are more prone to developing a blister as the skin becomes softer and more susceptible to rubbing against the shoe.

3️⃣ 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 can also lead to them catching a cold.


Most parents are not aware that the feet are like a conduit to the body, and the temperature of the feet usually determines the temperature of the entire body!

Now that you know what features the waterproof boots I recommend provide and how to tell when a boot is actually waterproof, you are ready to take a look at a selection of the best waterproof boots for girls.

The Best Waterproof Boots for Girls

Take a look at the description of each boot style to check if it can fit your daughter’s foot shape (narrow, medium, wide). Many of the boots featured below come in several color options, so if you want the boots to be made of a specific color, please make sure to click through and see if they are available in that specific color.

The waterproof boots that I recommended provide good support to your child’s feet. However, I suggest that your child wears these boots for a maximum of 4 hours a day, and then have your child switch back to his or her everyday sneakers.

Unsure About What Boot Size You Should Order?

In each of the descriptions of the boots, I indicate whether you need to order a half size or a whole size bigger than your daughter’s foot size to provide the correct amount of growing room.

If you are going to order your kids’ shoes online, you are going to need to know your child’s exact foot size, or you will end up returning the shoes back and forth.

If you are not sure of your child’s exact foot size, take a look at an article where I describe the simplest and most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home:

In that article I help parents determine their child’s exact foot size and whether the child has narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide feet. I also will be able to tell you whether your child has a high instep or not.

Please keep in mind that these are not snow boots. These are all waterproof hiking boots that your child can wear to school on those rainy cold days, or when she is going hiking. Hiking boots are always more lightweight and flexible than snow boots.

How Can You Tell if the Boot is Waterproof? – Let’s Find Out!

As I mentioned before, it’s important to not confuse water-resistant boots with waterproof boots. A water-resistant boot will prevent your child’s feet from getting wet when they are walking on wet grass for example. However, on rainy days a water-resistant boot will not prevent your kids’ feet from getting wet.

The only way to tell if a particular boot is waterproof is to check if it comes with a label that reads “waterproof”. Take a look at the image below for clarification purposes:


Did you know that socks play a huge role when it comes to keeping your kids’ feet healthy? I always explain to parents how socks act as a barrier between their kids’ feet and the shoes, preventing infections and the build-up of bacteria inside the shoe.
