When you live in New York, the chilly weather and changing leaves on the trees means that it’s time to get ready for winter which tends to be harsh in this part of the country. My kids play outdoors year-round so it’s important for me to have them wear quality snow boots that will keep their little feet warm and dry, but that are also comfortable for them to run around in. I recently came across a Japanese brand – Tsukihoshi – and loved their innovative concept of adding extra room in the front for toes. Gear Up for Winter with Tsukihoshi Snow Boots
Tsukihoshi began as a shoe store in Japan in 1873, where the shoemakers created shoes in-store. Now, 144 years later, the company continues to make shoes with the same motto: making fun, comfortable shoes that give children’s toes the freedom to move.
Each shoe is designed with a very generous fit in the front of the shoe to allow kids to wiggle their toes and stretch them.
I received snow boots for my boys and had them try them on to see just how comfortable it is to run around in them. I was personally wondering what it feels like to have all that extra room in the front for your toes. We sampled the Frost shoe and both my sons thought the shoes were very comfortable. It’s not snowing yet in our area so I can’t tell how easy it will be to run around in a foot of snow but they were happy running around in leaves playing ball.
The shoes are machine-washable, waterproof and ultra-lightweight. They have an anti-bacterial insole with green tea extract to kill odor-causing bacteria plus heel stabilizer and arch support.
Visit Tsukihoshi to learn more and to purchase the shoes.
