Rated 4 out of 5 by Mickey330 Good boot for kids
I thought the photos were mixed up similar to other reviewers, so I called Customer Service to make my order. The rep said that the Marine blue is really dark with yellow laces and the Dove gray has gray accents below a blue top. It turns out the photos are correct, it?s just the names that are a bit odd. We ordered the Dove gray because we wanted the blue top ones. I thought the blue was too bright but my daughter liked the color so all is well. She?s only worn them on 2 hikes so far but they seem to be a good kid?s boot. My daughter?s only complaint is that they make her feet too warm, but it is summer time now. Should be good the rest of the year.

These boots survived many national park hikes for 4 months, and one month of rain almost every day. Comfortable right out of the box and durable enough to be handed down to little siblings. Our kids love to wear them and I will buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by madjh Excellent for Young Scouts
Bought these for my son last summer and he's been on a variety of hikes in them, both day hikes and back country overnight treks in the mountains. He's been out in them in dry weather and also slogged through muddy trails in the rain, and aside from being a little dusty, they look just like new. We'll be buying him another pair as he's grown out of them. He hasn't had a single complaint about them this entire year except that recently they're a bit snug and it's time for a larger pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DavisEscapee Durable and comfortable, feet still end up damp.
My daughter has used these boots on a few family backpacking trips and they still look brand new top and bottom.
Granted we were traversing some pretty wet terrain on some long days, but her feet end up wet if there are puddles involved. It's to be expected I suppose, but even with gaiters her feet are wetter than her parents. Perhaps her feet are too hot?

Rated 5 out of 5 by summer602 Great quality
Bought these for my very active 7 year old who after many hiking excursions begged for "boots like yours, mom". Expensive for a young age but I bought 1/2 size up so they'd fit for awhile. She wore them out of the box on an hour-long medium intensity hike uphill, no complaints, and for a few hours around a local farm the next day. She said they felt "great". Quality seems par with most bean products I've purchased, meaning to say above average. I also feel more comfortable having sturdy boots with better traction than sneakers for an adventurous kid who's not afraid to run and jump on trails and scale rocky areas. She's happy with them and I'm satisfied with the quality, so I'd rate them worth the expense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by taffnusVA Great boots but wrong color
I ordered the Marine Blue for my daughter based on the title rather than the picture and I received the Dove Gray boots. The item numbers need to be corrected online. I would recommend ordering these by telephone to make sure you get the right color. That aside, my daughter loved the green streak on the soles so didn't want to return them. I order 1/2 size large so they'd last a little longer. They fit true to size and handled a 3-mile hike in the mud, rain and puddles without any problems. The water just beaded and ran right off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ambinMA A very comfortable boot
It is a very good boot. It is very comfortable and I walked a 4 miles through this New England slush and ice, the first day I put them on. These are for me and I foresee using these boots for many years. Great construction: sturdy and lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MA87 Great hikers!
Being an adult with tiny feet, I need to shop in the kids section. These hikers are great! They look adult and fit perfect! I would recommend going up a size from your normal shoe size, as they do run a little on the small side, especially if you plan on doubling up your socks. Very warm and comfortable! Can't wait until my daughters feet are big enough to get her a pair!
