When your baby is learning to walk, or even toddling pretty well, taking them out in the snow for the first time is a magical event. The crunching, slushy snow is all new to them, and having a great pair of baby snow boots is critical to everyone having a warm, good time.
Babies need slightly different boots than you or me. They need their snow boots to be a bit more flexible for their learning feet — and they need to be easy for caregivers to take off, but not so easy that your baby can rip those puppies off when you’re not looking. (Why are shoes so offensive to them?)
Of course, you want them to be cute, too. Fortunately, you could put just about anything on a baby and it automatically becomes cute, but I’ve found boots that are adorable all on their own. From mini baby duck boots to pull-up boots with a thick lining, there’s a baby snow boot on our list for every baby.
They’re a great option for new walkers who need a lot more flexibility in their soles than traditional boots provide. Yes, they have a little water resistance and a decent mudguard — but more importantly, they can be laced firmly to stabilize little ankles, and the bottom is really flexible.
The bottom is made from durable rubber but with more motion to it. Like the other Bogs, your little one can take these off and put them on all by themselves.
When you want your baby to be chic and warm, consider these boots from Sorel. They are the right height to fit with pants or leggings, are totally waterproof, and the interior is like butter.
Like most Sorel boots, these run pretty small, so you should size up a size or two when buying these adorable booties.
They’re as cute as they are useful, and for just $40, they’re a real bargain thanks to how well they hold up under the stress of children just doing their best to destroy them.
