by fromNot durable... Every year I get a pair of these boots for my girls. They usually wear out (cracked top or bottom) after the season. Which is what I expect (I guess). This year, I got another pair and this pair cracked after using it 4-5 times! They are really cute and the girls love them. But not durable at all. I won't buy these again and I'm shopping for other options.

by fromCute, but didn't last We bought these boots for our 5 year old to keep his feet dry on wet mornings. He loved them, but they fell apart after just a few uses. The seams didn't stay together. Needless to say; they didn't keep his feet dry.

by fromRain Boots I was on here shopping for shoes for my sons...and saw these rain boots...we have had btwn my 3 sons at least a dozen of these boots over their toddler years...yes they do eventually wear out/rip/split/etc...BUT from my experience it is because the kids LOVE them, LOVE that they can pull them on themselves, LOVE that they can splash in puddles w/out getting their feet wet, LOVE the cool designs, son just pulled his out this morning because he saw rain (and he had to search through his closet as i had hidden them because they are ripped). I would highly recommend these to any parent who likes their kids to experience being a kid...they are an essential/classic of a happy childhood! enjoy!

by fromEssential in Wet Weather We live south of Seattle so we get a lot of wet weather. My son has always lived in Western Chief rain boots. As soon as he outgrows one pair, we need to buy another pair. I love the style and durability of these boots. He can put them on himself. I've never had a problem with them breaking or cracking and he wears them constantly. Also, we love the fact that when you buy them at REI if you're ever unhappy with the quality, REI will make it right.
