The best winter boots are STONZ Winter Bootz! It’s been six years since I wrote the STONZ Winter Bootz review and we still buy them for our kids every winter.
The price, at $54.99 for toddler and little kid sizes up to 13 and $63.99 for bigger kid sizes one through eight, is fantastic for this level of quality in a winter boot. We’ve paid upwards of $90 and $100 for winter boots in the past, and these measure up.
Repeat after me: I will never, ever buy winter boots for my kids that don’t have an elastic drawstring around the top. Because if you do, trust me, your kid will end up with wet feet after very little snow play. Not even snowpants that tuck into boots are enough to prevent snow from sneaking down your kid’s boots without that drawstring closure. STONZ Winter Bootz have one.
The K Man finds these boots really easy to get on and off. Thanks, in large part I think, to the Velcro flap at the top that opens really wide so he can slide his feet in to the Bootz.
STONZ Winter Bootz are made in Canada, eh?!
They are so, so, so light. We’ve had problems with winter boots in the past being so heavy that my kids find them tough to trek through the snow. Not these guys. You have to seek one out and pick it up to understand just how crazy-light they are.
Waterproof and good for temps up to minus-50°C. Unless you’re in the Arctic, I’m pretty sure these will keep your kid’s toes toasty. We’ve played in the snow for hours and come home to perfectly dry feet and toes. I have yet to hear one complaint about cold feet come out of The K Man’s mouth. I wish they erased all complaining, but sadly they don’t yet come with this function.
There are only three colour accents available on a primarily black boot: white, grey and pink. Need more colour choice, STONZ! This is merely a superficial complaint that in no way takes anything from the brilliant quality of these boots.
The Winter Bootz are so popular that many sizes are already sold out. Drat.
