Rated5out of5byEddie SfromNice BootsGot these for my 9 year old son and he loves them, and he wears them every day and look nice with his school clothes. He wears out shoes very fast which is good because thats what kids do when they play and have fun and glad he will have dry warm feet durring the winter rainy season which will help prevent him getting sick (colds and such).
The only draw back is that they seem a little clunky and see that it's hard for him to run in (maybe the lowtop or shoe style would be different and will try this next time) but at the same time they are very very sturdy and have keeped up well with much abuse and still look new I might add after 3-4 weeks.
Overall, I would highly recomend them and even got my 4 year old daughter a pair of low tops and she loves them too!

Rated5out of5byTent KeeperfromGreat waterproof kids bootI bought these for my 8-year-old son in preparation for a 60-mile hike on the Appalachian Trail this summer. They performed splendidly. He developed a hotspot the first day, but only because he had tied them too loosely. After I showed him how they should be tied, no more problems. They kept his feet dry and comfortable, including a 9-mile day with 3,000 feet of vertical and a trip into watery Vermud that nearly overtopped the boots.

Rated5out of5byC WolffromGood pair of bootsAlthough I am writing this review, my daughter was wearing the boots. She said they felt pretty comfortable when she tried them on at the store and she hiked in them for a week at camp a few days later. She reports they were comfortable and stayed dry through creek-hopping and a light rain. The soles of the boots are sturdy, good for rocks. She had no complaints about her feet after the hike. These are a good pair of boots!

Rated5out of5byKnight1ifromGreat boot!My son picked these out mainly because he loves the color orange. We bought them to be his recess shoes (he has recess in the woods where they tend to fall into the creek and catch frogs, not a good place for your every day sneaker), but he took them up to Wisconsin for a camping trip. He went full leg into water, and these dried right away. Since then he has worn them on rainy days and almost every day outside, and just loves them! The laces are a bit of a pain just because he's not used to having the hooks at top.

Rated5out of5byu7904fromHiking shoes for a 10 year oldI bought these hiking boots for my son, a new Boy Scout. I have been looking for youth hiking boots around the various stores and none could be found, thus REI. They were perfect and in various youth sizes. Thanks REI
