Toddlers are natural explorers. So while you may think of winter as a time to stay cozy on the couch watching Love Actually and The Holiday and go to bed hella early, your little kid may have something else in mind… Mainly, playing in the snow and splashing in ice-cold puddles.
Sounds “fun,” right? Well, maybe if their feet are ready for it. Maybe. Anyway, everybody needs boots! Here are our favorite toddler snow boots for girls.

Tundra Boots ~ $46 – Economy Pick
Tundra is a cold weather brand with clout. These boots have great reviews and come at a great price! They’re cozy and the tread is legit.
LL Bean Northwoods Boots ~ $54
These all-purpose winter boots for kids are easy to take on and off and come with two sets of warm liners that can be removed to dry.
Kamik Kids Rocket ~ $59
This is one of the highest rated kid’s snow boots I’ve come across. This boot cinches at the calf, which is awesome for extra cold weather protection.
Also: if you prefer a removable liner in your kids’ snow boots, this is the perfect option for you. These liners dry pretty quickly, so your kids will be ready to head back out in the snow in no time. Kamiks are also available in a wide sizing for kiddos with wider feet.
*Sizing note: Kamik boots tend to run a tad small, so sizing up a tad will be your best bet.
Sorel Kids Flurry ~ $65
I bought this boot for both my boys when my fam took a trip to Sun Valley, ID a couple years ago. They were super easy to get on their feet; with a quick velcro strap, my kids were ready to go!
The fur lining kept their feet toasty but not sweaty. At the time, my youngest was a new walker and he did great in these. The tread was effective even though the boot isn’t a giant clodhopper. Upon finishing their snow sesh, the kids’ feet were dry and their boots were not soaked. Winning!
Columbia Powderbug Forty ~ $65
The Columbia Powderbug Forty are very well loved by many parents. They are easy to put on and keep little tots’ feet dry in the snow. The adjustable velcro strap at the ankle will keep the boot in place, and the rubber outsole has traction and grip to prevent falls. It rates for cold weather (down to -25 degrees Fahrenheit).
Stonz Cold Weather Boots ~ $69
A few of our readers who experience REALLLLLLY snowy winters (think Bomb Cyclone circa 2017) told me I needed to check out Stonz. These bad boys are produced in Canada—where they are quite familiar with below zero temperatures and heavy snowfall.
Stonz are equipped for temps close to -60 degrees F. I mean, what does that even feel like? (I don’t think I want to know…) People rave about how lightweight these kids’ snow boots are, while still being among the warmest out there. They are considerably lighter than Bogs and offer a great grip/tread. (If Amazon is out of stock/sizes see Stonz’s website for more options.)
Much like every Merrell shoe, these winter boots are loaded with performance features: M Select® DRY waterproof construction to keep feet dry; easy toggle closure for adjustability and a snug fit; M Select® WARM 200G insulation; and M Select® GRIP for flexible, non-marking traction. They are rated for -25 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, we love how they look — like, can we have a pair too (#twinningwithourtot)?[ See Merrell’s site if stock is low elsewhere.]
During our research, we asked thousands of readers for their favorite kids’ snow boots on our Facebook page. We got an overwhelming response about how much our peeps LOVE Bogs.
My own kids have been rocking Bogs for a while, and I love how easy they are for my little guys to pull on and off by themselves. Readers felt the same and also praised these boots’ quality and durability. The brand produces basic colors as well as fun prints. The insulated version is produced to manage -30 degree F — BRRR!!!
*Sizing: many reviewers recommend sizing down, as Bogs tend to run a tad large.
We used these EMU Brumby boots with my oldest last year, and he LOVED them… and so did we! The prints are super fun (and even glow in the dark… so of course my kid approved and proudly showed them to all his friends). They’re very easy for him to slide on, which is great for the morning hustle. Plus, they are made of waterproof suede and have an Australian Merino Wool lining. Your little one will stay toasty all season long, there’s no doubt about it. It is pretty expensive, but we sized up so they actually still fit this year. Hooray!
That’s all, folks! Hope you found some great snow boots for your little lady 👧⛄️.
