Kids’ Rain Boots for Boys & Girls Reviewed
We are always looking out for what is best for our little ones. And that certainly includes clothes and shoes. It's important that they are equipped with the very best and safest clothing for all kinds of weather, especially for rainy or cold season. When it comes to rain, besides adequate clothing, parents also should think about finding the best rain booth for their children.
1. Western Chief Rain Boots
These non-skid boots make a child feel like a "big kid". They have handles on the top to help them pull the boots on all by themselves. They come in a variety of colors and even designs (animals, monsters, etc.) and range in size with Youth 1-4 and Toddler 5-13. They are eight inches high and relatively simple to clean off. They are definitely one of the most cozy toddler rain boots you can find on the market.
The boots are waterproof. They also have a cozy lining, making them more versatile, to be worn for more extended periods. However, if the lining does get wet, it can take almost a day or so to dry out. So if your child tends to puddle jump during rainstorms, being able to wear these boots two days in a row might be a problem. Also, be aware that the handles can easily rip off. This boot is also a bit heavier than other boots, making it a little tougher for young ones to fully handle themselves.
2. Lands' End Wellie Boots
These rain boots are geared to active kiddos. They are perfect for those who like a little splash in their life, since they are bit higher than most other boots. The boots come in an assortment of bright colors and range in size from Toddler 9-13 and Youth 1-7.
Like the Western Chief, these boots have a snug, nylon lining, but when it gets soaked through, it can take up to 24 hours (or in some drenched instances, even longer than that) to dry out. They are also non-skid, so the chance for spills is reduced. The Lands’ End wellies do not have pull handles and they run a bit heavier than others, making them not simple for a child to handle all on their own. Based on many toddler rain boots reviews, these boots are a little above average in pricing when compared to other boots.
3. Sorel Rain Boots
While these boots have the same great slip-resistance and warm interior like the Western Chief and Lands’ End boot, they also have the added bonus of a separate detachable fleece that can be utilized to provide extra warmth on chillier days. There is a wide selection of colors to choose from and they come in Youth 1-6 and Toddler 9-13.
The interior dries extremely quickly, just about totally free of moisture well within a day. This is great, because these boots have a tendency to leak through, most especially in the toe area, if used in during a substantial rainfall. These boots run a bit more expensive than most other rain boots for boys and girls.
4. Hatley Rain Boots
Similar to the Western Chief boots, the Hatley boots also have pull handles, giving your child the independence to put on their own shoes. Coupled with the light weight and variety of colors and styles (sailing dogs, creepy bugs, etc.), the Hatley boots can be a bit more appealing to a child. They come in Toddler sizes 8-13 and Youth 1-7.
Their waterproof capabilities are top notch, staying dry even with prolonged exposure to a torrential rain. And when the interior does get wet, it's completely dried out and ready to be worn again within 24 hours. The non-stick soles are treaded, providing steady grip.
Each of these rain boots has different characteristics and capabilities. Once you consider what you need most out of the rain boots for your boy or girl, whether that is ease of use, style, safety, low price, etc., you will be able to narrow it down to one of these products.
