Did you know a brisk 10-minute walk can counteract the debilitating effects from six hours of sedentary activity? All the more reason to get out there. Today, children’s exploring shoes are every bit the high-tech, high-comfort, supportive shoes their parents are wearing. And sometimes they’re even cooler, with bright colors and bold styles. Get your kids outfitted and enjoy making tracks into adventure. Here are our favorite hiking shoes for the kids.

For bigger kids

The sturdy rubber sole grabs all kinds of rough surfaces. Your kids will keep their footing in the yard and on the trails. These leather Merrells are worth the investment. We love that these shoes last so long, your kids will probably outgrow them before they wear out the Trail Chasers. Of superior construction, these boots are valued hand-me-downs. We appreciate the EVA footbed. EVA is a rubbery plastic that is exceptionally cushiony, so they’ll stay comfy for hours. Plus, it’s removable. These big kid boots were made for walking.

No buckles or Velcro

Let them splash in puddles, explore trails, and chase around, knowing you’ve got these trekking boots on their feet. Fuschia suede and pink mesh make these outdoor boots a bright addition to your daughter’s exploring gear. She can put them on by herself because there are no buckles or Velcro, just simply tighten the laces. Not only do they feature M Select Dry waterproof construction, but the fabric wicks moisture away from your children’s feet. We love these low-rise hiking boots so much we wanted some, too. They also home in grey and blue, so if you want, you can have your own blue suede shoes.

All-around champion

The dark blue and orange combination is great for boys and girls. And with ten other all waterproof color combinations, you can put a little extra kick in your new sneakers. Destined to be your child’s everyday shoe, they are so comfortable. These sneakers combine material with leather for a great-looking sturdy hiking shoe. We love how simple it is to slide the shoes on and off. Make fine adjustments with the little straps on the insteps. Remember, these shoes come in metric sizing.

Safety, softness, and style

We love the attention to safety in these anti-collision children’s hiking shoes. We know how there are some kids who are a little more rough and tumble. These are the hiking shoes for them. Designed to keep your youngster’s feet safe from all sides, the soles on these sneakers wrap over the toe box and up the sides. This styling provides durability. Even better, the non-slip rubber sole pretty much guarantees sure footing.

Perfect for playtime

The EVA foam holds your child’s foot in comfort and the midsole stabilizes the heel, keeping hot spots and blisters at bay. Extra traction from the rubber sole and the bonus toe protection are a few of the features we love about these hiking shoes. They provide firm ankle support balanced with a comfy, padded tongue. Comes in six colors, all with hook and eye closures. We love all the features that make this shoe great for sports and hiking all year round.
