Comfortable Shoes

If you’re going to be stuck in the car for hours, you’ll want to be wearing comfortable shoes the whole time. If you plan on doing a bunch of activities this holiday season, comfortable shoes will help you focus on the fun times without having to worry about your feet hurting.

Winter Boots for the Whole Family

Going somewhere with snow? If you plan on hitting the slopes, staying in a cabin, or just going snow tubing, you’ll be ready to have fun in the snow with winter snow boots for you and your little ones. For that quintessential winter style, you’ll love our women’s insulated flannel-lined duck boots. These boots are designed with a waterproof rubber upper and leather shaft.

Their little feet will slip in, and rest assured that any snow will stay out of them. Keep your family’s ten little piggies nice and toasty this season.

Winter Coats for the Kids

Make sure your kiddos are all bundled up and ready for inclement weather. Get her bundled up and ready for her next adventure in our girls’ winter fleece-lined down alternative ThermoPlume® coat.

Hoodies for Layering

Check out our men’s Serious Sweats French terry waffle-lined full-zip hoodie. This hoodie has an irresistibly textured French terry fabric and waffle weave lining that will keep him comfortable the entire road trip. Whenever he has to get out of the car, instead of spending precious time putting on a whole winter coat, all he has to do is step outside in his hoodie, and he’s good to go in between trips to the gas station and the car seat. Nab some comfy hoodies for yourself too!

Take a look at all of our kids’ Christmas pajamas. Kids will love flannel sleep sets to take naps in a while snoozing in the back seat.
