Disappointed, Poor Quality - The plethora of positive reviews astounds me. My son's boots cracked and began disintegrating within a week of purchase, with moderate use in springtime temperatures, mud, and puddles. I'll not buy THIS brand again! Note to manufacturers: WIDE SIZES PLEASE!

Not so durable - My 6 yr old daughter absolutely loves her leopard print boots. I am quite disappointed, however, as we've had them for about 4 or 5 months and both boots have huge cracks in them (in the outer rubber) that make them completely unusable for the rainy weather. She would like another pair, but I hesitate to spend that much money on a pair of childrens boots that will only last a few months.

My 6 year old son loves these boots. Good grips on the bottom, great for rainy, muddy days. He has wide feet but feels comfortable in these. Zappos, as always, delivered them fast - within 1 day! Couldn't believe it.

My four and a half year old son says not to change a thing about them, please. They are easy to clean since you can take the insoles out. My son can use the loops to pull them on himself.\r\nI would recommend ordering one size larger than regular shoe size.

This is the 2nd pair of Western Chief Kids we’ve bought and we love them. Very durable, tend to run a little big which is fine with us. Great for kids with wide feet.

I bought these for my 18 month old son and he loves them!! He can put them on by himself, although sometimes he gets the wrong boot on the opposite foot. He even wears them around the house. I had read some reviews that said they ran a little on the big side so I planned accordingly and they fit good but have enough room that he can use them through the rest of the year.

My six-year-old son absolutely loves these boots. He has wide feet and can be hard to fit with shoes, but these don’t cramp his toes at all. They are very sturdy and the side loops make it easy and quick for him to pull them on, which is a huge plus.

I bought a pair of the Western Chief Kids rainboots for my two-year-old grandson. His parents are happy with them, especially as he can slip them on himself and pull them up with the handles on each side. They\'re sturdy and well made, with a great grip on the bottom if he wants to wear them in the snow. On the lighter side, he loves them because they are \'fireman\' boots.

My 3.5 year old loves these rain boots! He claims they are comfortable & they are definitely splash-worthy. They are not particularly heavy, which is a plus with tots. There may be a slight rubber-y smell to them that dissipates very soon. We've had another pair of Western Chief boots that lasted us a season (but with daily use, rain or shine), so we hope these last us a while. I recommend them!

These are good quality rubber boots, suitable for playing in the garden or the rain. The handles on the top part of the boot are great for getting these on and off a kid's feet.

My son loves these boots so much that I bought him a new pair when he grew out of his last ones. They keep his feet dry, they're really cute and very fun for stomping in giant puddles.

Loves them! My 5 year old had these as part of a Halloween costume - and they're big enough to last through spring puddle jumping! He loves them. They do stink for a while, but once aired out seemed fine.

Super cute boots! This rain boot is adorable! I bought it as part of a Halloween costume which it was perfect for, and now it's his favorite to wear on rainy days and to go puddle jumping. It is a bit big, but he has room to grow and will be able to enjoy it that much longer. The colors are vivid and the handles make it easy for my 3 yr. old to pull on and off himself.

Not just for a rainy day - I bought these boots because I needed waterproof boots for my 4 year old son who was going to horse riding camp. He loved them as soon as he saw them - in fact, I couldn't get him to take them off even after his rides. I loved them because they have a 90 degree angled heel, which is key for riding stirrups. Also because they are easy to clean and no shoe polish necessary (unlike the leather riding boots).

My 4-yr-old LOVES his new boots! I can't attest to the comfort (though he hasn't complained) but my little firefighter LOVED these from the moment he opened the box! They are very well made and well worth the money!

Excellent Rubber Boot - My 7 1/2 month boy likes the shoe. He likes to play with them because of the color and he does not mind wearing them compared to many other shoes. It is a quality made boot compared to Carters or other clothing brands that I have seen. My husband and I like the pull-up straps, so they are easy to put on an infant child (without twisting their little legs).

The Best Boots Ever - Loved these boots...I'm ordering a new pair for my 2-1/2 year old son (Firefighter Ty). They wore out completely - but I agree with another comment that it is likely the result of the fact that rain boots aren't intended for EVERY day wear. =)

This was a great purchase. My son loved them so very much. "I have boots like mommy", he says. My daughter, his twin wants a pair now too. Not too much of a concern is the gray reflective coloring wears off relatively easy & the padded insert came out. He gets compliments everywhere he wears them.
