Rated 3 out of 5 by MFK612 Draw cord rips easily through nylon
These boots are tough in many ways but the nylon around the draw cord at top ripped right apart with normal use. And what 5-10 year old kid can resist pulling on the cord once a rip starts? Boots were trashed due to this easy tearing and can't be used for hand me downs. I'm very reluctantly trying again this year, since aside from this issue, the boots are tough. But this is the last chance I'm giving.
PS to LLBean: please stop splashing your logo all over kids' products. We do NOT want them to be walking billboards and the use of "LLBean" on products has become excessive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MothersDaughter07 Needs to be redesigned
Bean's snow boots are usually top notch, but these are strange. The top portion with the drawcord hits flush with the top of the wool liner, making it impossible to pull the drawstring tight around pants, tights, what have you. Thus, the waterproof material doesn't do its job, and there is a huge gap that will let snow in. These will be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColoradoFamily Even for the girl who liked to "look good"
Bought these after my 1st grade daughter tore through 2 pairs of "nicer looking" (faux fur, not so "clunky") boots this winter. It seemed that finally she too was tired of having cold feet. Now she won't take these off. Love that the toe area is indestructible, they are warm, easy to put on. Her only complaint is that they are so sturdy, she can't run in them like more flexible boots, but with this much snow, there's not much running that can be done anyway! My only suggestion for improvement is that they add a small loop or other fastener system on the back so you can attach them to backpacks. They are much to large to fit in a backpack and for those school days when you want your boots but don't want to wear them to school in the a.m. these are too bulky for kids to carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MultiplesNY Toughest Snow Boots for Kids
These are the most durable snow boots on the market for kids. They are the toughest and have the best tread for handling snow banks and slippery ice. My children are tough on shoes and living in NYC we do lots of walking: so these boots are tested daily, the tread doesn't wear down quickly and they hold up without a problem. NOTE: I ordered the "bright navy" color for my son and the navy is actually much darker than appears on the website. I was actually quite pleased with the darker navy and it looks great on a boy. My girls are on their 2nd winter in these boots and I expect to get one more season. My son's should last for 2 years as well since I sized up. Given their durability, the boots are a steal price-wise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momto4boysinNJ Best snow boots ever!
I bought these snow boots for my 9 year old son who loves to play outside in the snow all winter long! Best snow boots ever! They are tall and stay dry! Will be getting these for my other sons too. Hands down worth every penny.

These are the best play in the snow boots ever. I just wish they made them for adults. My kids each get a pair every year unless we already have some that fit.

by UrbanMomMaryland The upper just ripped away from the bottom part
We are in DC in the middle of our huge blizzard of the year. My son just started wearing these a few days ago. He just came inside complaining of wet feet, and I found a huge, 6 inch rip in the seam where the upper is sewn/glued to the bottom show part. I will send them back, but it's so disappointing. We haven't completely dug out yet and he's got nothing to go out in the snow with now.

I bought a pair of these boots last year for my 12 year old. - they keep the feet dry and warm. I love that they come with an extra inner liner, in case they get wet. Haven't had to use them yet. My 9 year old son's boots were wet through every time he went out. So, we got his in the mail today. Happy kid! And, they worked perfectly, just like the other pair. Thanks LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NWoodsMom Hands down the best winter boots you can buy!
These are the best, most functional winter boots you can buy for your kids. A purchase you will not regret. I started buying these boots for my small girls (ages 3 & 5) and have kept ordering them year after year. The height of these boots is perfect for lots of snow/wearing snowpants. They're warm, cute, easy for kids to put on and pull off by themselves, and with extra liners included you just can't go wrong. We simply will not be shopping for boots elsewhere.
Highly recommended from two little field testers through snowy Minnesota winters!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYCWinters Execellect Quality!!!
I purchased these snowboots for my 9yr. old son and at first, wasn't sure they would be big enough for him. To my surprise, they exceeded my expectations! They are made so well and the fact that lining is removeable makes it so much easier for boot to throughly dry. My son and I couldn't be happier and he is so ready for the snow!
