The Booties were designed to fill the gap in warm footwear for children aged newborn to about 3 years old, before the child is comfortable walking in hard-soled winter boots. They are meant to be easy and useful for both the parent and child during this period.
Stonz Booties go on easily, stay on, keep cold and wind out and can be be layered depending on weather. The Booties help parents who want to spend time outdoors with their children without any fuss or worrying about them being cold or uncomfortable. They are intended to be able to be worn in the great outdoors (playgrounds, snow if layered up adequately, grass etc) and in backpacks, strollers, car rides, at home, day cares etc. As the child’s endurance and energy levels grow, Stonz Rain Boots or Winter Boots will be the natural next step.
The Booties were originally designed to go over whatever the child is already wearing: slippers, sleepers, socks, shoes, etc. As customers took the Booties into colder and colder climates we were asked to create a warm liner to wear with the Booties instead of the customer’s own footwear - which is how our Bootie Liners were born! In the springtime, many customers use the Booties as a shell, without the extra layer inside.
The Booties can be used as primary footwear (as we do on the coast) and worn the majority of the year (through Fall, Winter and Spring!). They are an easy-to-use, no fuss, high quality product that will allow you and your little one(s) to enjoy the outdoors together!
