“I have fallen in love with this boot and will never again take my daughter camping without them,” says one editor. The waterproof and insulated boots are easy to slip into and require no knotting lessons. They kept little feet from freezing on chilly Rocky Mountain mornings when the kids tumbled out of the tent to run around in dewy grasses. They’re warm enough for wet mountain conditions (in fact, the company rates them down to -30°F, though 0°F proved a more accurate comfort limit). They’re not for hiking big miles, but for playing outdoors in cold and wet conditions, they’re gold, which is why they’re worth the hefty price. Bonus: They come in all sorts of fun colors and prints.
