How to Keep Kids Feet Warm Over Winter

Finding a pair of boots or shoes that can keep your kids feet warm and comfortable during winter can be tricky.


At Lelli Kelly Shop, we have a range of products that are perfect for keeping your kids feet warm and stylish.


Why do kids' feet get cold?


Cold feet happens when your feet are at a lower temperature than the rest of your body. Cold feet can be a normal occurrence, however, there are times when it can be dangerous for your kids.


One reason why your kids' feet could be cold is due to poor circulation, which means it takes longer for the blood to reach their feet.


Young children, especially toddlers and babies, are still developing. For this reason, lots of blood is focused on their brain, lungs and other important developing parts, which is why less blood flows to their hands and feet.


What material is best for keeping your feet warm?


You kids ankles and feet can be susceptible to the cold, especially during Autumn and Winter, which is why you should keep a lookout for shoes and boots which contain materials such as:

  • Wool
  • Shearling/sheepskin
  • Thinsulate
  • Leather
  • Suede

Top tips for keeping your kids' feet warm over winter?


Injuries related to cold weather can occur quickly, which is why it’s so important to keep your kids prepared for the weather.


Here are some of our tips for keeping your kids' feet warm over winter:

  1. Get the right shoes and boots: Warmth and dryness are the most important factors when looking for shoes and boots for your kids. You should look for boots that are waterproof, well insulated and have tight closures to keep the warmth trapped inside them.
  2. Get the right socks: Padded socks are the best at insulating your feet whilst also keeping them dry. Try to avoid 100% wool socks, as they absorb moisture which can actually increase the risk of coldness and blistering. Instead, look for blends of wool and synthetic fibres.
  3. Ensure the right fit: As children's feet are constantly growing, it's important they have a pair of shoes that fit just right. If they are too tight or too loose, this can cause cold related sores on their feet.
