Earlier in the season, we gave you guys the rundown on our fave rain boots. Many of you asked for our top kids’ snow boots recommendations as well, so here ’tis!
Favorite Kids’ Snow Boots
Target Cat & Jack Girl’s Zera Toggle Top Winter Boots ~ $26.99 – Economy Pick
First off, this color combo is giving me life on this dark Seattle day. Similar to the Kamik Rocket, the Cat & Jack Zera boots feature a bungee-tied cuff for extra protection and ease of wear. People rave about how easy it is to get these boots on their little one’s feet without any wrestling or wrangling. With a little help from mom or dad, just tighten the toggle and your little one will be out the door to play in some fresh powder. As kids’ snow boots go, this is a tremendous value!
Check out the boy’s color combo here.
Stonz Cold Weather Snow Boots ~ $32.99+
A few of our readers who experience REALLLLLLY snowy winters (think Bomb Cyclone) 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.
Sorel Kids Snow Commander ~ $54.95
For our trip to Sun Valley last month, I bought this Sorel style for both my boys. 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. My early walker did great in these, and 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!
Kamik Kids Rocket ~ $55.00
This is one of the highest rated kid’s snow boots I have come across. This boot cinches at the calf, which is awesome for extra cold weather protection.
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. This boot is also available in a wide offering for kiddos with wider feet.
*Kamik boots tend to run a tad small, so sizing up will be your best bet.
Bogs Kids Classic Insulated Boot ~ $79.97
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!!! I am personally digging this bear print in grey and pink.
*Sizing: many reviewers recommend sizing down, as Bogs tend to run a tad large.
As runners up, these 3 brands also deserve a quick shout-out:
