We created these boots for children who hike occasionally. It is ideal on packed snow, for exploring snowy trails. These warm boots are easy to get on thanks to their wide opening and the adjustment rip-tab. They feel more protective thanks to the enhanced support.
Breathable, waterproof membrane to keep your feet dry.
Rubber sole with 4 mm lugs for good grip on snow.
Easy entry due to the wide opening and rip-tab adjustments.

We chose a warm lining that has insulation to give you effective protection from the cold. Based on the field and lab tests carried out with a panel of users to measure perceived cold, we gauge the thermal insulation of our shoes. It is therefore possible to accurately know down to which temperature your shoes are protecting you. The comfort temperature ratings are given for the shoes: -10Â°C for this model.
Your boots were designed with a membrane to make them waterproof and breathable. A membrane is a very fine component (from 5 to 25 micrometers) on the inside of a fabric that prevents water ingress and allows damp out.
We have checked that your boots are waterproof with laboratory tests that simulate walking with feet half immersed in water and with wear and ageing tests in the field. During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of impermeability: 2000 flexes (approx. 4 km walk), 4000 flexes (approx. 8 km walk) and 8000 flexes (approx. 16 km walk). Your boots were tested at 4000 flexes, which is equivalent to 8 km of walking.
The traction of the boots depends on the number and shape of the lugs (4 mm on this boot). Traction depends on the materials and ridges used on the soles, like your car's tires. Traction optimises propulsion, prevents the shoe from slipping backwards when going uphill and stabilises the shoe. Traction prevents sliding and slipping on smooth terrain and difficult conditions (rain, snow, ice), increasing the grip of the sole.
Our engineers conduct laboratory tests to fully guarantee your satisfaction in use. We validate the following elements among other things: strength of the eyelets and straps, glued seams, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of the sole and upper components and accelerated ageing.
To gear up in the winter, we recommend you follow the following principles : Warmth: increase heat with warm socks (ideally with a suitable % of wool) Breathability: Choose your socks depending on the intensity of the hike and wear breathable models to limit damp. Height of the boots: adapt the height of the socks to the height of the upper and prefer high models if you need more protection.
The water-repellency of a fabric is its ability to let the water slide off its surface, without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable and warm. Water-repellency is obtained by a treatment applied on the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment. Products (sprays and liquids) are available in our stores.
This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.
The product's environmental footprint is calculated over its entire lifespan using various indicators. A score is assigned, from A to E, to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other. Decathlon is committed to this approach. All our actions for sustainability on: http://developpement-durable.decathlon.com/
Store your products in a well-ventilated room away from light and moisture.
Our team of designers is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop beautiful, simple and technically advanced products. These are then tested in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve our products is to test them under the real-life conditions that you will experience.
