Want cute duck boots for kids? Sperry Saltwater duck boots are the best duck boots for kids. Thanks to Sperry for sponsoring this post!
This past week, Kayla and I spent four days in Seattle to work and visit close friends. Coming from San Diego where things are just starting to cool down to a “frigid” sixty degrees, this trip was an abrupt introduction to winter. I spent the week leading up to our trip scrambling to replace Kayla’s outgrown cold weather clothes.
A winter jacket, boots, warm leggings and socks that go higher than ankle height were top of my list. I wanted to give her some variety too, so she got shearling boots and a fuzzy hooded parka in addition to duck boots and a cozy lined puffer jacket.
What I didn’t expect was for one item in her wardrobe to become her absolute favorite – her Sperry Saltwater duck boots. I packed three pairs of shoes for Kayla to take to Seattle. Rain or shine, she rejected her shearling boots and sneakers, refusing to wear anything but her new Saltwater boots.
We explored the streets of Redmond, taking in the spectacular display of colorful leaves. Kayla spent her fair share of time jumping up and down in them, getting her post flight wiggles out and just being a kid.
Kayla braved the biggest seagulls I have EVER seen at the legendary Ivar’s Fish Bar at the waterfront. I was lucky enough to snap this memorable shot. It only took a few seconds for a giant seagull to swoop down and claim this fry. It was cold and wet out there, but apparently it was entirely WORTH IT to hand feed some big birds.
Kayla also took a few minutes to enjoy the Artist at Play playground. It has the tallest, most awesome looking climbing structure I have ever seen in a children’s playground. It’s the perfect place to let kids burn off some energy, while appreciating an architectural masterpiece.
As it turned out, Kayla was right. Her Sperry Saltwater duck boots were the best choice to suit all types of terrain and anything Mother Nature decided to throw at us. She loved that they were easy to put on, with side zippers and no laces to tie or come untied and fleece lined for a comfy and cozy feel.
I loved that their grippy rubber bottoms meant I didn’t have to worry about her slipping whether we were in wet leaves or walking through the rain. The lesson learned here? I could have just bought one pair of shoes and had a happy, warm, dry kid. Less to buy, less to pack, less to carry, still plenty of cuteness!
