How do I choose the perfect pair of gumboots for my child?
When the weather has been wet, a decent part of gumboots will ensure that your child’s feet will stay dry and protected. Gumboots are waterproof boots that are commonly worn on wet, snowy or muddy grounds and while your choice of gumboots is up to you, there are a few things to consider.
Sizing: The comfort of the boots is largely dependent on them being the right size, and ill-fitted shoes can cause a number of issues in later life.
Lining: Gumboots come featuring a variety of different linings, and your choice depends on the conditions that you intend to be in. For a wet hike in the winter, a thicker lining will be more beneficial than it would be in the summer.
Sole: When choosing gumboots, you should choose a flexible sole that provides support and structure for the child’s foot.
How should I clean and care for my footwear?
The cleaning method does depend on which item of footwear you have chosen, but it is important that to preserve your footwear you regularly maintain them.
For walking and hiking boots, your cleaning solution depends on the material itself, with products available for different materials. You should brush off excess dirt with a soft bristled brush and, with most shoes, you can clean resistant areas with a soft cloth and a small amount of dish soap and water solution. Gumboots should be stored upright, cleaned and dried after each use. You should also keep gumboots away from any heat source and out of direct sunlight when they are being stored. For hiking and walking boots, it is important that you reproof your boots, little and often, using an appropriate waterproof spray and you should not allow them to dry in a hot room or near a heat source.
What size of footwear and accessories should I buy?
Children’s feet grow at an incredible rate, and it is very important that they always wear correctly fitted shoes as ill-fitted shoes can cause a number of problems into adulthood. At Anaconda, we recommend that you measure your child’s feet before purchasing footwear. Ensure that the child stands upright when you measure their feet and that each foot is placed firmly and flat on the ground. Gumboots should be large enough to make sure that the wearer is also able to wear thick socks with them without any part of the boot pinching but small enough that the foot does not slip out.
