Hi-Tec Blackout Mid WP JRG

A great all-rounder, the Hi-Tec Blackout Mid WP JPG has a lot going for it – not least styling, which total an amazing 8 different designs.  So hopefully, there'll be one your little one will like.

The rubber outsouls provide great grip and Hi-Tec claim these boots have a protective layer which repels water & dirt – and it seems to work.  We're really impressed with the elasticated laces with velcro closure, which should help even the most challenging of lace faseners.

Cotswold Kids’ Littledean Waterproof Walking Shoes

The big problem with walking boots for kids is they have a habit of growing out of them quickly… so these from Go Outdoors are amazing value for money.
The mesh upper is breathable and waterproof, and there’s ample support for those growing ankles too.  The flexible rugged sole provides good grip, and construction is very good for the price.

Preditably, there are available in each pink or blue colour highlights.

Trollkids Kids Rondane Hiker Mid walking boots

You might not have heard of the name, but Trollkids from Denmark make some seriously good boots.  The Kid's Rondane Hiker is made from a soft, flexible material which supports the foot very well, while the mesh and EVA inner lining allows for breathablity.

The cushioning of the midsole should mean there's no hurting feet on long walking routes.  The lacing is easy to use and together with the pull-on loop putting them on is child’s play.

There's a selection of five funky designs to choose from.

Peter Storm Kids' Dovedale Waterproof Boots

Available from the many Go Outdoors stores across the country, Peter Storm Kids' Dovedale Walking Boots are very much smaller versions of the adults in their styling, and has a design which should suit girls and boys.

Waterproof and fairly comfortable for the price, the man-made materials are quite strong and wipe clean easily.  Grip isn’t bad, but perhaps more suited to low-level family walks rather than starting ascents on mountains.

And they come complete with a Texapore membrane to keep little feet dry and warm, and they come in two snazzy colours - designed to cater for any kid’s taste.
