Winter is a season made for adventures, especially if you have a tot at home. Little ones want to slide on ice, stomp on puddles and play with snow. The only thing you need to do is, well, be along for the ride, yes… but also make sure that they stay warm and on their feet as they wobble their way through all that wintry fun. Here, we’ve selected are absolute favorite toddler snow boots for boys.
Check them out below and stay cozy this season!
Tundra Boots Snow, navy ~ $30 – Economy Pick
Tundra is a cold weather brand with clout. They have great reviews and this is a great price! They are cozy and the tread isn’t clunky for new walkers.
We’re big fan of Crocs for the summer, and their rain boots have been great as well. We love how these snow boots look. They’re sleek with a soft insulated padding to keep ankles warm. The side hook-and-loop tabs make it easy for little ones to put them on by themselves (perfect if you have a toddler, like mine, who’s eager to gain some independence on his day-to-day). And at $49, that’s a pretty good deal.
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 ~ $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 sizing for kiddos with wider feet.
*Kamik boots tend to run a tad small, so sizing up a tad will be your best bet.
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.
Sorel Kids Flurry ~ $59.95
For our trip to Sun Valley, ID last year, I bought this Sorel styles 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. 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 hook-and-loop 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).
Moon boots for toddlers? Yes please! We used another pair of snow boots from Native last year, and we loved them. So plush and so retro, the Chamonix snow boots are sure to keep your little one’s feet toasty all winter long. Plus, we love that the insulation is made of recycled material.
Merrell Kids Snow Bank 2.0 ~ $69.95
Much like every Merrell shoes, 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).
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 rainbow print in blue, swoon.
*Sizing: many reviewers recommend sizing down, as Bogs tend to run a tad large.
We used theseEMU Brumby Dino boots with my oldest last year, and he LOVED them… and so did we! The print is super fun and glows 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!
