Mamas, what are your favorite winter boots for toddlers? We're expected to get a cold winter here, so I'd like something that will keep her feet very warm and dry.<br><br>
I'm looking at <a href="http://www.landsend.com/pp/SnowFlurryBoots~130296_5.html?bcc=y&action=order_more&sku_0=::ZTU&CM_MERCH=IDX_00009__0000000919&origin=index" target="_blank">these from Land's End</a> but would love more ideas. DD is 21 months and wears a 7.<br><br>
Also - should I size up to allow for thick socks?

Those look great to me! I found DS's snow boots this year at a consignment store for $5. He wears an 11 in his other shoes, but I got him a size 12 to allow for a little extra room for thick socks. So yes, I would probably go up a 1/2 size to a whole size to allow for the thick socks!

We like LL Bean boots, I can usually find them used.

We have a rockin' pair of sealskin boots. Soft-soled, lined with quilted flannel :lostit. When DS outgrows them, I'm gonna be sad. :cry Might have to have another kid just so they get used. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

These sound amazing!<br><br>
OPs Lands End boots look pretty rad.<br><br>
I got a pair of Kamiks from my local consignment. We also have <a href="http://www.vincentshoestore.us/shop/index.cfm?modelid=42" target="_blank">Vincent rain boots</a> and <a href="http://shop.bearpawshoes.com/product/7578220/color/3" target="_blank">Bearpaws</a> (I can't do without sheepskin boots for dry weather walking in the winter).

Well I can tell you what NOT to buy. Carter's boots suck. Toby can barely move in them. I don't know if it's because they're a little big on him or what, but I hate getting them on (because they fall off constantly, the velcro doesn't hold them on his feet) and they don't seem particularly warm or comfy either.<br><br>
I want to buy him another pair of a different brand (those sealskin boots, I want a pair for me!!) but I'm not thrilled about spending the money. Stinkin' fast-growing baby feet.

Talk about crying, I bought these last winter for ds: <a href="http://www.softstarshoes.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=1197" target="_blank">http://www.softstarshoes.com/index.c...roduct_ID=1197</a> and he refused to wear them! I'm keeping them for a future child, but man did that break my heart!

Ditto on Carter's! Actually, I haven't had any footwear of theirs that work for my kids. I usually find them at 2nd hand stores or they are given to us. Funnily enough, they're usually in brand new condition <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> guess other people's kids don't wear them much either!

I got DD a pair of Ministar Fur Bootz from target.com. They are ADORABLE! Soft, flexible moccasin bottom, warm furry lining. She doesn't even try to take them off lol! I think they come in 3 colors incl. beige and brown. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

We got <a href="http://www.kamik.com/GenfootWeb/servlet/webProductDisplay.webProductDisplaySrv?currentMode=DETAIL&curCatalog=2009&curSeason=WINTER2009&curRow=162" target="_blank">these Kamik's</a> this year. They are so intelligently designed: waterproof bottoms, water resistant uppers, nice warm fuzzies inside...but the best part is that they <i>roll</i> down! You can easily get your kiddo's foot in there and then roll them up over pants or snowpants or what have you and with one Velcro fastener, you're done! Brilliant!
