The Zamberlan Kid GT is a proper boot, designed for the hills. The upper is very supportive with a good solid toe box and some good stiffness in the upper too to protect the foot. There’s a Vibram sole unit with reasonable stiffness for rockier terrain too. This boot offers most of what many children heading to the hills will need. But the outsole lug pattern is a little shallow, so this is not going to be ideal for the muddiest of moorland walks and it may wear down relatively soon as it is so shallow.

The Zamberlan Kid GT is a good boot for children heading to the hills, but the lugs could be deeper for keeping a grip in mud.
