The Booties were designed to fill the gap in warm footwear for children aged newborn to about 2 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.
The Booties go on easily, stay on, and 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 worry about them being cold and uncomfortable. They are meant to be worn in the great outdoors (playgrounds, snow if layered up adequately, grass etc) and in backpacks, strollers, car rides, home, daycares etc. As the child’s endurance and energy levels grow, Stonz Winter Bootz will be the natural next step.
The layering up of the Booties extends the life of the Booties as well as their purpose. The Booties originally were designed to go over whatever the child is already wearing; slippers, sleepers, socks, leather 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 why we now sell Linerz! As spring approaches, you may use the Booties as a shell and without the extra layer inside.
The Booties can be used as primary footwear (as we do on the coast) and worn 10 months of the year. They are meant to be an easy, no fuss, high quality product that will allow you and your little one(s) to enjoy the outdoors!
