The cold weather is here, but that doesn’t have to keep the kids inside…yet! Keeping kids outside starts from the toes and with providing your kids with great shoes that can withstand all the variables that winter will bring. For toddlers, finding a supportive shoe that will fit their (sometimes chubby) feet doesn’t have to be difficult with help from Junction City Storage Units.
We talked to parents and compiled a list of winter shoes to consider when buying the next size for your little one. These have been tried, tested, and approved for active kids in cold weather and are worth an investment if you want the kids getting as much fresh, winter air as possible! They are also approved by even the pickiest of toddler shoe wearers–the type that rip off their shoes the minute they are buckled in their carseats. That no-shoe style doesn’t exactly work in winter, so we found shoes that toddlers can’t resist keeping on!
KEEN “Kootenay” Waterproof Winter Boot
If your kids love wearing KEEN sandals in the summer, these would be a great, low-profile boot option that will keep their feet warm, dry, and still allow for lots of running and playing. The velcro strap makes them easy to take off and put on, and their fleece lining keeps feet warm. These boots can go from daily outdoor play shoe to snow boot easily. The reinforced toe also makes outdoor play a bit safer and more sturdy than a tennis shoe! These start in toddler sizes and go all the way up into big kids!
Merrell Bare Steps Boots
These adorable boots give the barefoot feel that toddlers love, but are guaranteed to keep their feet supported and warm during play in those cold winter months. These also feature the easy on-and-off velcro closure, a wider toe box, and outsole with grips for walking on many types of terrain.
Another KEEN offering, these shoes style the same design as their famous sandals, but are completely enclosed, waterproof, and lightweight. They can go from play shoe to hiking in the same afternoon, and are low-profile enough to wear to school or out on the town. They can be tightened with a hook-and-loop enclosure and a velcro strap at the top, and if your toddlers really love them, there’s good news–the sizes go all the way up into big kid sizes!
Pediped Adrian Sneaker
For a good sneaker that is lightweight and easy to take off and put on, check out Pediped’s Adrian sneaker. The things we love about Pedipeds? They offer a unique Flex Fit System, which supplies differing inserts so the shoes will fit your little one as long as possible. These sneakers are also machine washable, so slush and dirt is nothing to worry about! These are not waterproof, so they may not be the best choice for lots of snowy play (better stick to KEENs for those!)
PLAE Ty Sneaker
These are another lightweight sneaker that is machine washable, but these are also waterproof and pretty customizable for both style and fit! We also love PLAE’s Growth Spurt Guarantee, which makes sure you get as much use out of your little one’s sneakers as possible!
If you’ve been waiting to get your little one their first winter walking and play shoes, wait no longer! These are great options for busy parents who need to find some highly-rated toddler sneakers that can stand up to the winter weather!
