Boys' rain boots
range from plain rubber galoshes
to modern styles with colorful prints. The trick is finding a pair that they want to wear, that will actually keep their feet dry. Whether you're raising a champion puddle-jumper or just need boots
for those inevitable rainy days, you're sure to find something to love among these top picks in boys' rain boots for 2013.
Long-known for their traditional green Wellingtons (or Wellies), Hunter now makes boots in an array of colors for the whole family. Choose from basic colors like red or dark green, or more vivid shades like yellow or lime, but whichever hue you and your kids prefer, you'll know you're going to get one serious rain boot with a great reputation for quality and comfort.
I don't know whether or not every boy loves Batman, but if yours does, he's in luck with these rain boots from Western Chief. If not, don't worry, this brand also offers Superman, frogs, cars, and plenty of other kid-friendly styles to choose from as well. But my favorite feature of these boots is the side handles that allow kids to easily pull them on and off.
After my recent review of Bogs boots
, I've become a big fan of the brand. But even before I'd tried them out myself, I found the kids' versions of Bogs to be irresistibly cool and clever.
The 'Glosh' is one of the newest additions to their kids' line, and the bright colors, practical side handles, and reasonable price tag are sure to make them a big hit with parents and kids alike.
Some boys might resist the idea of wearing rain boots -- especially once they get a little older. While boots like these don't offer the height of a traditional rubber rain boot, they are waterproof, and they can be worn all day -- so in some ways, they might even be preferable. There are a lot of boots that look
like these, but if you expect them to protect your child from water, of course, they have to be waterproof. Be sure to check before purchasing.
Available in black or brown, and medium and wide widths, the Timberland 'Pawtuckaway' also comes in smaller boys' sizes
