Great boot, falling part after 3 wears..

My daughter LOVES these boots - the color, the fit - BUT the outer buttons popped off on the SECOND wearing. We're just talking "walking around" wearing. These boots never saw snow or rain. I think we just got a defective pair.
Worked with customer service and they are replacing them free of charge. STP customer service is the best around.
Besides that - Love them - I think they will be warm enough and the fact that they can be switched out to rain boots is terrific - now i don't have to buy her a new pair! Would prefer a darker color - shale mud is bound to stain them, but the light blue is the color she picked out, so we'll live with that.
all in all - like them - as long as the button thing gets resolved before it snows!

A fine boot

My 4 y.o. son got these to replace a sadly outgrown pair of Bogs (previously purchased from STP). I like that the Sorel boot is waterproof all the way up, unlike the Bogs, and that it is somewhat insulated. The Sorel's fit, however, seems loose, more like a traditional rainboot. The Bogs fit my son's foot more snugly, allowing him to climb and jump in puddles. My son wore the Bogs daily, rain or shine. The Bogs also appear to be warmer, which isn't as important in our Northern California climate. And while I like the bright, cheery blue and white colors on the Sorel, the Bogs' brown polka dot style ALWAYS received compliments. I am not sure I'd buy these over the Bogs again, at least for my son. The fit is just too loose. FYI, I got each boot at an excellent price, [$]

Not meant for really cold weather.

I bought these for my 8 year old son who insisted on this particular pair of boots because of the bear logo on the side. He says they are really comfortable and he likes that he can pull out the liner and wear them as rain boots. I was hoping for a bit more insulation on the inside as our temperatures here in Idaho get in the low teens on a daily basis in the winter. As it is, if he is going to be wearing them in the snow for an extended period of time, I am going to have to double up on socks.
I like that there are no laces/ties to deal with as he gets impatient when the snow hits and it is time to get outside and play.

perfect for mild climate

I bought these for my 4 year old son to wear as rain boots. I ordered them in his normal size and they are a good fit with regular socks. My husband pointed out that with thick winter socks they might be too tight since they are lined on the inside. We live in TN so I think they will fit fine and keep his feet warm enough while wearing thin socks. I will say if you live in a cold climate the lining in the boots is thin and most likely will not keep feet warm enough in snow. We are going skiing and I am buying a different pair of boots more appropriate for colder weather.

Great for the price!

I got these boots for my 2 1/2 year old daughter and she LOVES them. I read the review about the liners not being thick enough for one purchaser, but if I put a pair or two of thick socks on, these boots will work great for my daughter this winter. And- if I take the liners out they're great for play time and spending time with grandma and grandpa in Alaska. The boots themselves feel thick- which is really nice, since durable boots (thick, but still pliable) work best for toddler's scuffing around. I love them, my husband loves them, and my daughter thinks they're the prettiest boots ever!

Super boot

I bought these for my daughter and she has loved them since first putting them on. The only drawback is that they have an open top, her other Sorel boots have a drawstring which helps keep snow out. But snow pants over the boots work very well, and she seems to really love them. It is nearly warm enough to take the liner out and use them as rain boots. And then pass them on to her little brother (we got the royal blue)! As far as I can tell from the feedback of a 3-year old, the sizing is true.

does what its supposed to

This is the best time to buy them!

The kids can wear them with the liners this winter, and as their feet get larger by the spring, the boots will still fit when the liners are taken out.

The liners are light fleece with a padded sole, so this boot is well suited to places that get moderately cold; ones that rain or get occasional snow in the winter. The rubber boots are very solid.

"Chili" is a true red, btw.

My daugter loves these!

My Seven year old daughter loves these boots. First because she can still run around at recess and not be hindered by clunky snow boots and second the great pattern. Her feet have stayed warm and dry. My only complaint and the reason for the four star rating is the buttons on the side that hold the finger pulls have popped off. However, they are not necessary so I removed them, other than that these are a great boot for fast growing kids.

initial impression good!

The Sorels Rainbo are well made - no cheap material here! Since we are still in a major drought, no chance to wear them yet but am hoping for a wet winter! Bought them for myself (ladies 6-6.5 depending on shoe) and they seem a bit big but no half size was offered and didn't see any recommendations for the conversion. Got the youth 5. Love that there is a removable liner that is easy to put back into the boot!

Cute Shoes

These shoes are great for my 3yo daughter. I got them in the light blue color and I was worried how much dirt they might show, but they clean up so easy with a wet rag. Ane she loves them since she can get them on and off by herself. I like how not only are they great for rain but since they are insulated with fleece they will be great for when it starts to get cold.

Negative Reviews:

Cute, But A No-Go

Bought these boots for my 7-year old daughter. They ARE cute, but the design is all wrong. As a rain boot, they are too big and clunky. And with the liner, they are far too snug. My daughter wears a size 2, and she could barely get her foot stuffed inside the 2.

The REAL downfall of these very cute boots is getting the liner out, and then back IN again. It took me 15 long minutes of trying, and there is NO WAY my daughter could do it without an adult's help. A real pain. So they are going back.

They are very well made, and the concept is great, but Sorel needs to start from scratch on the double duty boot idea.

Think twice before buying these.

Sole wore through in six months!

I bought three pairs of these boots in spring 2010. While they provide superior warmth and comfort with the thick fleece liner, they are of a very poor quality. The first thing to go were the buttons that latch the fleece inner lining fixed into place. Luckily, the liner has a wide rim and stays fixed inside the boot without the buttons. On one of the boots, the sole was worn through after only a few months use. For the price of the boots, which I bought a size up thinking they would last my boys two seasons each, these are a terrible quality. I live in California where it doesn't rain that often, but when it rains it pours. We need boots for those rainy days.

A Rain Boot NOT Winter Boot

I bought 3 different sizes of these because they seemed such a great deal. It WAS NOT clear to me that these were more of a rain boot than a WINTER boot. I do not see how they would keep little feet warm in the winter. A nice RAIN boot, but not for the price. I could do better elsewhere.
Disappointed at Sierra Trading Post on 06/06/2010

Cold feet and falling apart after 1 mo!

These boots certainly didn't meet my expectations for a Sorel boot! The liner is just a single layer of thin fleece. The buttons that are designed to keep the liner in place popped off after one month of wear. Just not the quality I expect from a Sorel. Will be returning these.

Heavy and Thin insulation

This boot is quite heavy considering that its a child's boot. I assumed the removable lining was the typical thick felt of Sorels. It is not. The lining is a thin fleece. This seems like a spring rain boot not a winter rain boot.

Buttons pop off

I bought these for my daughter My 6 year old has been wearing them for the past few weeks and one of the buttons that holds the liner on fell off and we can not find it. Thinking of sending them back.

Don't get the ones with buttons!!

I ordered four pairs of these boots, in sizes 13 and 3 for my girls, and size 12 for my twin boys. The girls' boots are terrific--because they DON'T have buttons. The boys' ones do have buttons and I have had to exchange them twice, because within a month (the first time) and a week!!! (the second time) one of the buttons popped off. If you're not too fussy about how they look you could just tuck the loop in, but if you do ever want to use the boots without the liner you will have an ugly little plastic stump where the cute bear button used to be, and a floppy rubber loop thingy. Yuck.
I suspect that the buttons are for the smaller sizes, but it may be a color thing. Whatever the case: investigate before you buy-- and stear clear of the buttons.
