which boots for dd1 who is 6 :-

she has wellies for rain

Was gonna just say buy the cheapest without looking at your links but having seen that the cheapest are the knitted wool things then I would say buy the last ones. Those knitted things will start falling apart and looking like crap within weeks I'm sure. As for the Kickers £45!?!?!

I haven''t looked at the links...Next boots are not good and if there is snow they won't last. Or rain. Or a few puddles.
You need proper leather ones.

Clarks or Startrite.

Or these crocs Powder Boots

Your links are surely for younger than 6? THose boots might last on a baby in a pram...never on an actve 6 year old.

I would go for the snow boots (obviously, she has shoes for warmer weather and wellies for rain)

tinkbig Sat 24-Sep-11 21:17:24

she has clarks trainers and wellies

bebanjo Sat 24-Sep-11 21:22:01

Every year we get DD Gortex boots from Clarks, never make her wear Wellies in the cold weather.

i really like the snowboots cute and practical

DorisIsAPinkDragon Sat 24-Sep-11 21:24:59

WTF they are all fugly/ impractical!

Do you have shares in next or something?

There are so many pairs of nice and practical boots for 6 yr olds.

As for AIBU too bloody right!

i usually buy from clarks thought i would chose some from next instead
think i will go for snow boots most practical

tinkbig Sat 24-Sep-11 21:29:04

thankyou soverlucky grin

MrsRhettButler Sat 24-Sep-11 21:32:47

I would go for the grey snow boots if I had to choose from your options

foreverondiet Sat 24-Sep-11 21:34:48

Don't think this is really for AIBU but I wouldn't buy any of these.

The woolly ones are like slippers and will fall apart, the kickers aren't really boots and are v expensive and the other ones are waterproof like wellies.

I bought clarks blacks ones last winter, something like this, she could wear for school and at weekends.


But my DD has wide feet hence need to do clarks, might be able to get cheaper elsewhere, eg


On the subject of cardigan boots, do he uggs oes last longer ?

tinkbig Sat 24-Sep-11 21:38:54

yes sorry shouldnt of put in aibu

doesnt need boots for school has patent school shoes

like snow boots as warm not like wellies

chocolatespiders Sat 24-Sep-11 21:39:56

I saw some red spotty snow boots in next today and will be getting for dd on pay day... they look so cosy and practical

OnEdge Sat 24-Sep-11 21:41:03

Apparantly the real croc wellies are very warm

tinkbig Sat 24-Sep-11 21:42:50

these look cool 2

yes chocolate spiders they look good too

chocolatespiders Sat 24-Sep-11 21:46:53

We went out so much in the snow last year and had very warm clothes but only wellies which dd found so cold even with welly socks on... so I am def buying some snow boots this year.. Even if no snow perfect for winter walks with warm toes smile

nancy75 Sat 24-Sep-11 21:50:54

it depends what you want them to go with - my DD has had those knitted type boots before, they last fine and are warm (obviously not great when it's pouring down, but then they have wellies for that)
As for everyone saying they won't last, obviously they won't be worn every day - and how long do people think things that are 15 quid will last for anyway?

tinkbig Sat 24-Sep-11 21:54:42

thankyou nancy

will try them all on her and see which ones fit

do like grey snow boots those crocs look good 2 though

thought i would c what other people would get
