Columbia Youth Madruga Peak GTX

A good-looking children’s walking boot; top-quality Gore-Tex waterproof lining; reasonably aggressive lug pattern on sole; good cushioning. But very soft toe box and upper provides minimal protection against rocks; soft flex in sole also allows rocks to be easily felt through the sole; synthetic upper not as durable as full leather.

Verdict: Buy it if you want a waterproof boot for grass terrain, forest trails and moorland walks.
