The perfect shoe fit and grip. Although I am 22 year old but I comment these kids shoes to those who have UK 5 size.
Great Snow Boots .. Wore them in Iceland a few weeks ago and definitely good boots
Purchased for winter trip to Europe, great quality, comfortable for all situations, warm & DRY highly recommend for kids.
I am always hesitant to buy "non Gore Tex" products that state they are waterproof. Bought those for our 9 year old daughter after wearing Salomon and Super Fit Gore Tex for years. Tested the shoes the afternoon I bought them by placing her in 6cm deep water (well below the "waterproof line" of the shoes) and waited 5 minutes. Instantly they leaked in every seam of the shoe. The only waterproof thing about those shoes is the repellent (that will wear off in no time). Will return them! FYI, a Gore Tex shoe (properly waterproof) will never leak in the test above, no matter for how long you stand there. Avoid if you need waterproof, buy if you´re happy with a non-waterproof "waterproof hiking shoe". Prepare to be disappointed the day its really wet.
First boots my son has had which he will put on even if we aren't going for a walk. He loves them. Supportive and comfortable for summer walking
My son Wyatt has wide feet so it's always a struggle for us to find any kinds of shoes that will fit well on him. However, this pair of hiking shoes is so great! The fit is just perfect on Wyatt and he said it's so comfortable to wear. He used this on a 3-day hike and never did he complain about it and got no blisters. It was raining during our hike so we tested its waterproof capability. We were so surprised that Wyatt's feet are all dry after 8 hours of walking up to the mountain. How awesome is that? The trails up to Mt. Fuji have mostly loose rocks and there are some steep parts where you'll be like rock scrambling. Good thing that these hiking shoes have a very good grip. I personally tripped over several times with my old shoes but Wyatt did not stumble even once with his Quechua hiking shoes. Overall, we highly recommend this for a multi-day hike.
Good shoes. Would recommend.
These boots are a good fit, the kid likes them and enjoys wearing them while hiking in the highlands. The boots give good grip and support while on rough ground. They are comfortable and look good too.
Best pair of boots I’ve had in a long time and the cheapest too. The price doesn’t compromise the quality with these boots and they are sooooooo comfortable! Fab purchase
Have not rubbed my ankles, comfy and stylish
Excellent product at good price
Purchased for my daughter. Daughter loves them, she says they are light and comfortable. She has no restriction in movement and can run as fast as when she wears trainers. They kept her feet dry in the rain and warm in the cold - my daughter and I are happy customers.
Bought a pair for each of my twins over a year ago when they were 6 years old. These sturdy walking boots have been used for over a year, climbed 4 Munro's, Croagh Patrick and various jaunts in the pentlands. Still plenty life as still plenty grip tread and waterproofing and so now off to buy in bigger size now kids have outgrown them. These boots are true to size but recommend a size bigger to allow for socks and terrain if you will be using for hill walking. Great quality, durability and price. Cannot recommend more highly than saying I'm off to buy again.
My 6 yr old girl just loves climbing up anything. she says “I can trust in my grip, mum.
I bought them for my 8 year old grandson to wear on his first walk up Snowdon in may, he has worn them on several long walks so far & absolutely loves them.

The sole design that has been the subject of extensive research in our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber composition to optimize grip and traction. Because all needs are different, we always search for the best compromise for muddy and dry terrain.
Having been tested in the laboratory and in use, the boots equipped with NOVADRY® provide optimal waterproofing and breathability. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Then they are placed on a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water to check that the inside of the shoe remains perfectly dry.
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing, i.e. 2,000 flexes (about 2 hours of walking), 4,000 flexes (about 4 hours of walking) and 8,000 flexes (about 8 hours of walking). Naturally, after this test or in use, the waterproofing of the boot will be restored when it is dry again. The junior Forclaz 500 high shoes are waterproof to 4,000 flexes.
The waterproofing of shoes is often compromised because water gets in at the collar of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, it is therefore advisable to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter that will prevent not only water from getting inside through the top, but also pebbles, sand, etc. It is advisable to use a waterproof spray several times a year. This restores the original water-repellent properties and prevents staining.
Let your child try on both boots, standing up, with the socks used for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check the following 2 areas of comfort: the heel and the front of the foot when going downhill. There should be no compression points when fitting. Do not hesitate to have your child walk in the shop. Gradually increase the amount of time they wear the shoes during the first walks to break the shoes in.
For hiking, do not hesitate to choose 1 size above your usual size to ensure optimal comfort when going downhill and prevent your toes from hitting the front of the shoe. Advice: keep your toenails short and, before descending, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding forward inside the shoe.
Further laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following: tearing of eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of sole and upper components, accelerated aging.
Further laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing.
All our shoes are tested in use near the Mont-Blanc mountain range by the target users under the same conditions as they would experience in real-life use.
Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.
Use the brush and/or sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. The use of cream or waterproof grease on split leather is not recommended. While it will not damage the leather, it will change the look of your shoe.
