Picked these up for the starting 5 year old in our group, and he hasn't taken them off! What a great shoe, very impressive being a solid, TRUE, hiking boot for kids; it's the adult shoe shrunk down. Great support, waterproof, traction, build quality.... what more can I say? Don't skimp on the Jr. partners and get these!
Best boots for the kiddo's, hands down! Great ankle support, tight lacing, waterproof, good traction, and built tough! Only wish they had more than one color style!
