Rated 2 out of 5 by 2015momto3 Not what I expected from LL Bean
I read so many wonderful reviews of these boots that I thought they would be great, but I was sadly disappointed when the kids came in with feet that were soaked. These boots are not waterproof, or resistant. They are fine if playing in sub zero temps but when it warms up and is close to 30 degrees these boots soaked up the snow. I originally thought I could just change the liners since they came with another pair but the boot itself was soaked. It took about 2 days over the floor vent to dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BOXRCRZY Terrific Boot
Bought these for my rough and tumble son. Bought a little large and just wore thicker socks so was able to wear for two seasons! The placement of the Velcro straps really allow a great fit and easy on/off. Loved the idea of extra liners, but never needed them---these boots are that water/moisture repellant! Resold easily at yard sale for good price due to durability of the product and the reputation of LLBean . Taking that money and reinvesting in next size up. Cannot recommend these enough. Held up great, were warm, dry, and comfy. You will not regret this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by locustseason LOVE these boots!
These winter boots were perfect for my 5 year old daughter. She loves to jump into piles of snow and slush no matter where we are, and the extra height on these boots really helps to prevent snow from going down into her boots. I loved the extra liners that came with the boots - a nice surprise! These boots received a LOT of wear this winter and they still look perfect. I really recommend them!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nessie82 Not waterproof
These were my daughter's snowboots we kept at preschool for the winter. They play outside every day even in the snow. No matter what, these were soaked through every day leaving her with wet socks and feet. Sometimes they wouldn't even by dry by the next day. I understand they have replaceable liners but I'd rather her feet stay dry in the first place - especially when it was darn near impossible to get the new liner into the boot. The cheaper boots we got at a chain store worked much better and keep her feet dry because they are water proof all the way up to the top. Usually I recommend LL Bean to everyone but in this case I tell people to steer clear of these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DDESMom Solid boots for busy kids!
I bought these boots for my daughter when she was 4 and we had just moved from Florida to Colorado and she needed winter gear. Going with the quality of LLBean for boots, jacket and snowpants was so worth the money. We are now on our 2nd season and they are going strong. She loves to play in the snow and her elementary school goes on snowshoeing excursions. She has never once complained of cold or uncomfortable feet. I will be reordering when she grows into the next size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Swoozie Well-made, but stiff and heavy
I love these boots. They're durable, keep my son's feet warm, and reasonably priced. My son, however, complained that they're a bit heavy and stiff, so I took a star off. He wears them, but only for sledding/playing in the snow. He hates walking around in them because of the weight/stiffness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jayblab Excellent Purchase!!!
My son has lived in Florida all of his life and we moved to Canada early December.These boots in the color graphite were one of my first purchases in preparation for the big move. All my son knew was tennis shoes and flip flops but he loved these!!
He has worn these boots non stop since we have arrived. My son (7 years old) loves them and claims they keep his feet warm. He doesn't even have to wear thick socks, regular socks do just fine.
It has been 2 months of non-stop snow-hardcore-Toronto-weather with a little boy who loves to play in snow, jump in dirty slushy puddles and kick dirt, and they hold up like new (once you wipe clean them). When he outgrows them, I would consider buying another pair, Plus the price is very reasonable!
Oh, also, they are soooooo easy to put on and take off, which is definitely needed as here he needs to take off his boots in school, put them back on at the end of the day, AND at home he takes them off within 8 seconds... great!!! <3

Rated 5 out of 5 by PortMom11050 Love these boots!
My 8 yr old daughter is wearing Northwoods Boots this winter. She loves them. She says they are very comfortable, and warm - and she loves the way they look (we have the turquoise houndstooth pattern). These have been worn through a couple of winter storms, for playing in the snow, and to/from the Vermont slopes. All good, and feet are always dry. The extra set of boot liners is great to have on hand, and so far have not been needed at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ameanya Awesome Boots!
These are the best boots ever! The boots are warm and keep the feet dry. The Northeast was hit with a storm last week and my daughter played outside and wore them to school without her feet getting wet or cold. I ordered an additional pair for my youngest daughter. As the other reviewers stated they do run very large, I don't mind because the kids feet are constantly growing.
