The Best Winter Boots on Amazon to Get Kids Playing in Any Weather

When the weather outside gets frightful, the little one in your life needs a sturdy pair of snow boots. Our picks for the best kids’ winter boots on Amazon range from wool-lined and weatherproof to faux-fur fashionable, heavy duty to lightweight, big-kid sized to tiny-baby booties. Apart from looks and size, keep in mind the average snowfall where you live (twelve feet of snow vs. twelve inches) and what your kid likes to do (stroll on shoveled sidewalks to a friend’s house vs. spending all day constructing the world’s biggest snow fort). Then complete the look with our recs for the best mittens and hats and you’ll be set for sledding weather.

Bogs B-moc Waterproof Insulated Toddler Winter Boot

Is your toddler deep into their “I can do it by myself” phase? Then take a peek at these boots by Bogs, which feature durable handles for easy-on/easy-off wear. These handles are even more of a godsend if kids stubbornly insist on putting on their gloves or mittens first, logic be damned.

Columbia Kids' Minx Mid Iii Print Omni-Heat Snow Boot

Aleader Insulated Waterproof Cold-Weather Snow Boots

No matter how wind- or waterproof a boot might be, it’s no good if your child can’t actually go anywhere, which is why we’re obsessed with the thick, nonslip treads on Aleader’s snow boots. Indeed, you might even say that these boots are absolutely made for walking. (We’re sure Nancy Sinatra would approve.)

CONDA Baby Booties Infant Fleece Slippers

OK, so technically babies don’t need boots in the same way that a toddler or little kid does, since they’re not exactly trudging through the snow. But they still need to keep those tootsies toasty. Conda’s booties do just that, enveloping baby feet in fleece with not one but two sets of Velcro straps to keep toes securely snug.

ICEFACE Kids Winter Snow Boots Waterproof and Insulated

As stylish as they are functional, these boots are made for kicking snow and looking cool while doing so. Faux fur peeks out from the top of the hot-pink boot body, for maximum finesse, but extends all the way to the toes, eliminating any hint of frostiness.

Kamik Snobuster2 Snow Boot

Kamik’s Snobusters might look like your average rain boots, but looks, as they say, can be deceiving. Behind their rubber exterior is a soft, moisture-wicking lining. Aside from being cozy, this design makes the boots incredibly lightweight. No more literally trudging through the snow.

Littleplum Kid Anti-Slip Snow Boots

These boots had us at “velvet insole,” but then we turned them over and discovered a Transformers-like anti-slip steel buckle on the bottom. Highly recommended for the kid who can’t or won’t let a little snow or ice stop them from sprinting to the top of their local sledding hill.

Vamv Kids Snow Boots

Vamv’s snow boots are basically booties for bigger kids. They’re an excellent choice for chilly climes that don’t get a ton of snow, since the water-resistant, wool-lined boot doesn’t extend much past the ankle. Think wintry mix, rather than nor’easter.

Ugg Kids’ K Bailey Button li Fashion Boot

Still uber-popular for a reason: Uggs are unbelievably comfortable, whether you’re five, fifteen, or fifty. Leather on the outside, sheep fur on the inside, these boots are worth the cost. Plus, they’re as cozy as fireside slippers, or as they said on an episode of “Community,” they’re “like wearing a dream.”
