Our Top 5 Children's Walking Boots

It's our number top tip when starting out walking - buy the best walking boots you can afford, because if your feet are happy, the rest of you is happy.

But chosing which pair of walking boots to buy is probably one of the hardest choices for all our outdoor kit decisions.  So firstly, have a look at Our Guide to Walking Boots here, and then take a look at our selection of the Top 5 Children's Walking Boots available now.

As we get to see new kit, we'll be updating this page, so keep popping back to stay up-to-date with our selection.

Hi-Tec Altitude Lite i Waterproof

A great all-rounder, the Hi-Tec Altitude Lite I has a lot going for it – not least styling which is well suited to either gender.

The rubber outsouls provide great grip and Hi-Tec claim these boots have a protective layer which repels water & dirt – and it seems to work.  A removable lining also increases the lifespan of the boots too.

Muck Boots Kid’s Hale

Ok, so not walking boots in the traditional sense of the phrase, but these trendy wellies are super for getting outdoors.

As they are wellies, they’re 100% waterproof, so no wet feet here, and the stretchy tops keep the heat in and the cold out - helped by the 4mm neoprene.

They come in a range of snazzy colours from standard black to Pink Zebra – all designed to cater for any kid’s taste.

Berghaus Expeditor AQ Trek

By the age of 14, most teenagers will be in adults’ sized boots, and these Berghaus are one of the few on the recommended list for the DofE Award.

Available in both men’s and women’s fit and in half sizes up to 12, these are well suited to what the DofE will throw at them.  Waterproof suede upper, an AQ waterproof lining and Berghaus’ own outsole pattern are the business.

Hi Gear Kinder II WP Kids' Walking Boots

Available from the many Go Outdoors stores across the country, Hi Gear Kinder II WP Kids' Walking Boots are very much smaller versions of the adults in their styling, and has a design which should suit girls and boys.

Waterproof and fairly comfortable for the price, the man-made materials are quite strong and wipe clean easily.  Grip isn’t bad, but perhaps more suited to low-level family walks rather than starting ascents on mountains.

Mountain Warehouse Rapid Kids Waterproof Boots

The big problem with walking boots for kids is they have a habit of growing out of them quickly… so these from Mountain Warehouse are amazing value for money.

The suede and mesh upper is breathable and waterproof, and there’s ample support for those growing ankles too.  Construction is very good for the price.
