My son maybe turning 7 tomorrow, but that doesn’t mean that our muddy puddle jumping days are behind us. Oh no. In fact whenever Monkey is outdoors, he’s often to be found in search of mud and sticks, and puddles are just the added bonus. I recently spotted some really funky footwear which I just knew would go down a storm with him. The Kids Hale Hasbro outdoor boots from Muck Boot feature a range of boots with characters from My Little Pony and Transformers. We opted for Bumble Bee to keep Monkey’s feet dry in the months ahead.
The Kids Hale Hasbro outdoor boots from Muck Boot are really unlike any other outdoor boots or wellies Monkey’s had. He was sold as soon as he saw the Bumble Bee Transformer design and couldn’t wait to try them on.
Not only is the design really striking but I really like the wrap-around soles which are designed to give children great stability as they race around at a million miles per hour.
The tops of the Kids Hale Hasbro outdoor boots from Muck Boot are made of 4mm Flex-Foam with a breathable mesh lining. This makes it much easier for Monkey to hold onto his boots as he’s trying to pull them on. We have however found them harder to put on then his old wellies. They have a more contoured fit at the back above the heel and Monkey has taken a bit of time to get used to putting them on and pulling them off.
I was worried that they might be a little small for him, but once he’s got his feet in, they fit really well. In fact, we’ve also discovered that this boots have a removable sock liner, which has made them slightly easier to pull on and off.
He’s worn them for hours on end without any hint of them being too tight. The Neoprene shell construction is 100% waterproof and self insulating, making this a great all seasons outdoor boot.
We really got to put these outdoor boots to the test last weekend. Monkey was spending Saturday morning with lots of other Beavers from across the district at a Sing a long Santa event. He’d be outdoors for at least 3 hours, enjoying lots of different activities and having fun in the woods. It was time to put these boots to the test.
Monkey spent all morning running around in his new Muck Boot boots, and he absolutely loves them. His feet didn’t get cold at all and he found them really comfy to wear. I love the fact that they are so distinctive.
We were down in Wiltshire on Sunday visiting friends and as soon as Monkey knew we were heading for the woods he was straight in his Kids Hale Hasbro outdoor boots from Muck Boot again, ready for more adventures.
Priced at £55.00 the boots are extremely well made and will see him right through the winter and into the spring, whatever the weather. They’re a big hit here.
