With some experts predicting another severe winter just around the corner, Little Terra has stepped in to help parents choose snow boots with a guide at http://www.littleterra.co.uk/
Carolyn Budding, children’s clothes buying specialist at Little Terra, said: “Winter can be a magical time for the whole family, whether you are on the slopes or at home.
“To make the most of the season, though, parents need to think about what they want from snow boots and kit out their kids in footwear that meets all their needs and looks great.
“There are lots of factors that need to be taken into account, so we’re pleased to make our new guide available to everyone on the littleterra.co.uk website.”
Snowboots can have fleece-lined rubber feet, which have good grip and which are easily cleaned. If the uppers are made of snowproof material, though, they may not be suitable for deep slush or paddling.
Boots made entirely of snowproof material, on the other hand, will be perfect for crisp winter days, tobogganing or tramping around the pistes, but they may not be ideal in mud or slush.
Other variables include linings and fastenings, and Carolyn is urging parents to consult Little Terra’s free online guide before buying.
She said: “We have produced other online guides on subjects such as autumn eye protection, and customers have found them really useful.
“We are sure this guide to snowboots will help parents keep their youngsters active outdoors throughout the whole season, on the slopes or at home, whatever the weather.”
