Boys' Preston Shearling Boots
Perfect for 60 year old mom about town
I often buy from the Big Kids department for myself. These boots are perfect -- comfortable and warm -- for getting to yoga class, shopping in town. I wear a women's size 7 and the youth 7 runs a little larger than that, so perfect when worn with thick ragg socks.

I just purchased the third pair of these boots. I recommend them to everyone who has a boy. They hold up well, are easy to get on and off, and are warm! I hope that they continued to be offered in future years.

Spur of the moment purchase that ended up being a hit!
Honestly, I came across these boots during a sale period when I was looking for inexpensive boots for my 6 and 7 year old sons' Halloween costumes (they are both going to be pirates). Initially, I was going to buy them rubber rain boots at the tune of $18 a pair, but when I saw these on sale here, I figured why not spend the extra couple of dollars to get something that was more useful. I was a little worried that they might look too "girly" (like UGGs), but to my relief, they are very masculine. I purchased one pair of brown ones for my 7 year old and the black ones for my 6 year old. The black ones look very much like motorcycle boots, and the brown ones are "cowboyish" for lack of a better term.
The boys say that they are very warm and cozy, and I actually caught one of them trying to wear them to bed the first night they arrived. They plan on wearing them to school on cold days when they don't need sneakers for PE. I don't think I would let them go out and play in the snow with them (that's what snow boots are for), but these will do fine for the days that it is cold or rainy & sneakers are inappropriate. In addition, they can wear them with khakis for more dressy occasions and they won't look sloppy or too casual, like sneakers or their snow boots.
I would definitely buy these again.

We LOVE these boots!
I buy these boots every year for my sonThe quality is great. thick supple leather and suede with a thick rubber sole and warm inner shearling lining. They look a lot like the leather version of the more popular Uggs that are so expensive but these actually have an arch and decent support in the foot bed.
My son has a wider foot with a high instep and he says they are comfortable. He loves that they slip on and off easily. True to size. Rugged quality that we were able to hand down to my daughter. They cleaned and polished up great!

Perfect Fall Boot
The thing I love about these is that they are gender neutral!
I have ordered this boot in brown for 3 years now for my daughter. They are durable, good quality, and look great with jeans. They are very easy to get on and off, they aren't too heavy, and they stay on well to run around the playground.
They are warm enough for our Vancouver BC fall weather (and we sprayed them and they do fine in the rain,) and for colder weather she wears warmer socks with them.
I am looking forward to ordering them for my younger son next year when he fits into the smallest size.
My only complaint is that they should start them in a size 7 or 8 toddler instead of 9! I love them that much.

Best boys boots ever!
I bought these boots for my boys, ages 10 and 5. I was originally attracted to the slip-on style with no laces to tie. I was tired of seeing my older son walking around dragging his shoe laces and his shoes looking terrible because of dirty, worn-out laces. An added bonus was that my 5 year old could slip them on himself, saving me grief every time we left the house. These boots look good with jeans, khakis, and school uniforms. We received many compliments on them. This was by far the best money I have ever spent on shoes! My boys wore them almost every day from November to March. I had to hide them from my 5 year old because he wanted to continue to wear them in the summer! After months of continuous wear, my boys finally managed to scuff them and wear out the soles. I will continue to buy these each fall as long as they are available!!!

Amazing Boot for a VERY active 3 year old!
I WILL buy another pair of these next year. There is a reason they are top rated. My 3 year old has worn these from the time it got cool this past fall until now here mid-march and I am afraid he won't understand when I quit letting him wear them when the weather gets warm. These boots slip right on and fit perfectly. He can do it all by himself. I used the printable size chart provided to get his size. He has had them on almost every time we go out the door this winter and we have put many miles on them at a local nature park and at the grandparents' farm and I am not kidding when I say there is ONE tiny little scratch on them that you can only see when you hold them up to your face. How well they have held up for us is unbelievable. The boots made it to the creek this past weekend on our warmest day thus far and I threw the boots in our HE washer in a bra bag and they came out looking like new. That is the reason I am here now with my review. I knew I had to come tell people how great this boot has been for us and how we will be buying them every year as long as you make them. The color we purchased was brown and it looks excellent khakis and jeans, dressy or farm-wear. We go outside in the winter for hours at a time all bundled up on the farm and my son, with only one pair of socks on Never came out of these boots with cold toes. On our coldest day I would take his boots off at the door and feel his toes to make sure he wasn't hiding his chill to get to stay out longer and they would be toasty warm. I skimmed a couple other reviews before starting mine and saw a gal said she wanted some made for her. She is RIGHT - I would buy a pair for me if you had them. Thanks for making these and all of your other quality products.

Great color match almost everything and very comfortably. Brown boots
I bought these boots for my 4 year old he loves wearing them even at home. They are very durable and don't scratch at all. They fit well and the quality is great. I was going to get him some UGS but found these and they are great for the price and quality. I even got him another pair on the next size for next winter

Not ideal for a cold climate but attractive style and excellent fit
I bought these boots for myself to go with a long down LE winter coat. I am a 55 year old female, not a kid. I really like the way they look and fit. They make good car boots when worn with a really warm pair of socks, but you wouldn't want them for sledding or long trecks through the snow. My 17 year-old daughter also likes the look. Would be great if LE would make exactly the same design but all leather and lined with real shearling or some kind of good insulator. The combination of suede and hard leather would look terrific.

comfortable, easy to wear(no laces), and reasonable price
They fit great, I love the quality and very chic and warm. I just let my son wears them when we go out. Otherwise, they are too nice for school, he has different boots for school, which I got them from Land's End as well.
I am totally satisfy with these boots, that I bought second pair for his next year.
My son loves them, he said they are very comfortable, warm and they're not too heavy.
