The Best Kids Boots and Shoes for Winter

The Best Kids Boots and Shoes for Winter

Finding a pair of shoes or boots that keep your kids feet warm and comfy for winter can be difficult, but don’t fret.

At Lelli Kelly Shop, we have a range of products that your kids will love and are perfect for winter.

What footwear do kids need in Winter?

In winter, you should ideally look for shoes and boots that fit properly and keep your kids feet warm and dry.

Since their ankles can be susceptible to the cold, it's a good idea to look for footwear that will cover their ankle or have enough room to be able to wear with longer socks.

Some footwear to consider purchasing includes:

  • Boots

  • Wellies

  • Waterproof Shoes

  • Should you buy kids new shoes for Winter?

    If your kids haven’t had a new pair of boots for a while and they are beginning to grow out of their old ones, you should consider buying new shoes for your kids this winter.

    If their shoes from last year are fitting too tightly, this may result in sores on their feet and issues with their walking.

    You can learn how much growing room you need in kids shoes by reading our dedicated blog.

    Best types of shoes for the Winter

    When your kids are going out in colder weather and facing elements such as snow, ice, rain, cold winds and frost, it’s important that their feet are protected.

    You should look for shoes that feature the following qualities:

    - Made from waterproof material
    - Insulated
    - Have good traction
    - Have ankle support
    - Are true to size

    The best boots for kids in Winter

    Best boots for wet days

    For wet days, we recommend the Pink Unicorn Stars Wellies. These boots are ideal for wet days in winter. The cute waterproof outers will keep your kids feet dry, and the lined inside will help to trap the warm air, ensuring that their feet stay warm.


    If your kids prefer darker colours, our Glamour Alto Nero Glitter Boots are perfect for those wet winter days. The chunky sole is ideal for keeping their feet lifted off the ground and the side zip makes them great for quickly putting on/off.

    Best boots to keep warm


    When the weather begins to cool down but the rain holds off, it's a good idea to keep your kids’ legs and feet nice and warm. The Valerie High White Patent Faux Fur Topped Boots are the perfect choice for that kind of weather, thanks to the fur trim and fully lined textile inners.


    For a shorter boot, our Lisa Pink Warm Lined Ankle Boots are a great option. These boots will still cover your kids ankles and keep them cosy thanks to the soft faux fur lining. The dusky pink coloured suede and embellished rhinestones will also keep them looking stylish.

    Best boots for dry days


    The Ruth Nude Vernice Patent Ankle Boot is perfect for cold but dry days. These boots come in a nude patent upper, with elasticated side gussets, making them perfect for wearing with a thick pair of socks.


    For extra sparkle on dry days, we suggest our Ali Di Fata Rosa Glitter Wings Ankle Boot. These boots come with pink glitter wings, making them perfect for brightening up dull winter days.

    The boots are covered in a light pink shimmer protected by a clear coating, meaning that if an unexpected rain storm were to occur, your kids' feet would be kept dry.
