Last fall we added stylish boots from Keen to my daughter’s wardrobe. This winter we added warm Keen Boots that are designed to keep little feet warm during cold weather.
Aside from the year we spent in Ohio, my kids have been warm weather tots, living in Alabama and Florida. Winter in Germany is a whole new beast for all of us, requiring a whole new collection of gear to combat the long, cold winter. After our first snow in October, when we played outside in knit mittens and sneakers, we quickly discovered we needed some serious winter gear. The Keen Kids Kalamazoo High Boots are up to the task!
Kalamazoo High Boots
The Kalamazoo High Boots WP are serious snow boots that are super-functional for kids. The Boots feature insulation to keep feet warm and a waterproof upper to keep out unwanted moisture. The Boots close with two adjustable velcro straps
The Boots feature some innovative Keen technology to make them cold-weather-ready:
KEEN.WARM: A lightweight insulation that keeps you warm. Who knew charcoal bamboo could create something that keeps your feet warm? But it makes KEEN.WARM – a lightweight, anti microbial insulation that provides warmth where you need it most.
KEEN.DCR:The KEEN Dual Climate Rubber outsole hardens in cold weather to bite into packed snow – all in the name of tracti
Admittedly, at first the Boots seem a little overwhelming for my son’s feet. I mean, he’s got skinny little twig legs and these are some serious boots. But, he loves them and is super comfortable in them. Indeed, he’s worn them to school and on day trips, as well as to play in the snow. So while they are thick and a little heavier than an average sneaker, for example, they certainly don’t slow my little guy down.
Here are the kids in their KEEN Boots on a snowy walk home from the school bus stop.
My son even picked his Keen boots to leave out for St. Nikolas last month!
