Gumboots – the greatest children’s footwear ever, right? But not always the most appropriate footwear for every occasion. So here’s a gumboot of sorts – a boot that fits over children’s regular shoes – so their little feet can remain dry, and their style intact. Trust us, you will love these!
They’re called Butler, and they’re overboots. That’s basically a pair of boots that can fit over children’s shoes.
For all intents and purposes it appears the boots are pliable and flexible, making them easy to fit onto kids’ feet – just like gumboots. A pair of these for each of the kids thrown into the back of the car would be genius. If they’re dressed to the nines and the weather turns nasty – throw on the overboots and their stylish shoes stay dry. And they’d also be fabulous for visits to the snow.
The boots will come in toddler and youth sizes, in colours including classic navy, yellow sunshine, fire engine red, bright lime, pink passion and teal tales. They have a velcro closure making it easy to slip them over shoe-wearing feet.
We’re keeping a close eye on these US-made boots, which are due for retail and online release in September. They’re expected to retail for US$49.99.
