Tis the season for wet, cold, snowy weather. I’d like to preface all of this by saying I just LOVE the snow. I love it in all forms and winter has always been my favorite season. Unfortunately, I live in the desert nowadays and it’s just not the same. I miss snow and even ice. I miss shoveling and ice skating.
Basically, I say all of that to say that while I love snow, I haven’t had to deal with it much in more than a decade. So, what’s a desert girl to do when tasked with a toddler snow boots question? Turn to the experts! Yup, twin parents like you have chimed in with your best tips for picking out the perfect toddler snow boots for this winter season.

What are the best snow boots for toddlers?
Trying to find the perfect pair of toddler snow boots might seem daunting at first. Here are a few basics to keep in mind when you go shopping. Hopefully these things can help cut down on confusion and eliminate the frustration that comes with standing at the return counter with a wiggly little one (or two).
- Look for easy-on toddler snow boots. No one wants to be fighting with cheaply made zippers or laces every time they need to leave the house. Look for easy zippers that are well made and velcro closure.
- Ensure the whole boot is weatherproof. Believe it or not, some boots are only weatherproof at the foot. Making sure the legs are, too will ensure your toddlers are warm enough.
- Proper fit. This one is important. It can be hard to justify not buying a size up so you can try and use them for a couple of winters. The problem is that if they don’t fit well, snow will likely sneak into the legs, defeating the purpose of your toddler snow boots.
- Check the soles. Make sure they have grips on them. Your wobbly toddlers probably have a hard enough time walking in the snow without adding poor toddler snow boots into the mix. A smooth sole is a sure-fire way to cause lots of falls this winter!

Favorite toddler snow boots brands
Now that we have some basics, let’s talk brands. Like with many other products, not all toddler snow boots are created equal. Taking all the above concerns into account, we have broken down a few of the more popular brands for you and even included links to save shopping time!

This is one of the most popular brands of toddler snow boots on the market. These boots are sturdy and made for even the chilliest of winter weather.

It certainly doesn’t hurt that they’re awfully cute, come in about a dozen colors, and come in toddler sizes all the way up to size 13 in little kids. They come at a bit of a higher price than many others which is why many parents may shy away from them, especially with twins. But, when parents break down and buy them, they almost never go back!

As a general rule, you do NOT want to size up with your toddler snow boots. Fit is an important factor when you are trying to keep things like snow and rain out of their shoes. In a perfect world, you can pull the liner out, put normal winter (thick) socks on your toddler’s feet, and make sure there is about 1 finger worth of space on either side. This will ensure a good comfortable fit.
How do I get my toddler to wear boots?
The easiest way to get your toddler to wear toddler snow boots is to have them stand in front of you with their hands either on your shoulder or on a hard surface while you guide their foot into the boot. Then, they can use their own body weight to push down into the boot.
Of course, if your toddler isn’t steady enough for that, you may have to wrestle around with their feet and legs to wiggle them into the boots!

Technically yes, you can have your toddler wear their rain boots in the snow in a pinch. Let’s say the weather is nice and warm and then next week-BAM- cold front and snow. Sure, they can wear rain boots. But rain boots often do not provide the same support, traction, and insulation that toddler snow boots do. So, you will probably want to get snow boots pretty soon!
With so many different kinds of toddler snow boots to choose from, we know it’s hard to know which ones to choose. Hopefully, this guide can give you a bit of direction before you start shopping!
