We created these boots for children who hike occasionally. They are ideal on packed snow. Head off on the snowy trails. These warm boots were created with a rubber sole for greater grip. You can walk with confidence when hiking on packed snow.
Breathable, waterproof membrane to keep your feet dry.
SNOWCONTACT technology: optimal grip/traction on snow, 3 mm studs.
Mid-height upper with a hook that provides a good fit and good support.

Can you be sure that your boots are warm enough for your winter hikes?
We assess the thermal insulation of our boots based on the field and laboratory tests carried out to measure the perceived cold by a panel of users. As a result, you now have an accurate measure of the temperature at which you are protected with these boots. The comfort temperature rating for these boots is: -6°C for this model.
How do your boots protect you from outdoor conditions?
Your boots are designed with a membrane to guarantee waterproofing and breathability. A membrane is a very fine component (5 to 25 micrometres) affixed to the inside of a fabric that prevents water from entering while allowing moisture to escape.
Breathable boots for optimal thermal comfort
Thermal comfort is a balance between the warmth of the boots and its ability to let the foot breathe. Too much heat or not enough breathability means that damp accumulates and cold can set in. We have designed your boots with your activity in mind, be it occasional or regular, with a membrane which prevents water ingress and lets damp out.
How can I be sure that my boots are 100% waterproof?
We made sure that your boots are waterproof by conducting laboratory tests to simulate walking with the boots half submerged in water. We also conducted field tests to measure wear and ageing. During the waterproofness test, we test 3 levels of waterproofness: 2,000 flexes (approx. 4 km walk), 4,000 flexes (approx. 8 km walk) and 8,000 flexes (approx. 16 km walk). This model of boot has been tested for up to 2,000 flexes, which is equivalent to 4 km of walking.
What is the difference between traction and grip?
The traction of the boots depends on the number and shape of the studs. The grip is dependent on the materials of the sole and the tread pattern, like the tyres of your car. Traction optimises propulsion, prevents the boot from slipping backwards when going uphill and stabilises the boot. Grip prevents the boot from slipping and skidding on smooth ground or in demanding conditions (rain, snow, ice) by giving the sole grip.
Which type of grip and traction does this boot provide?
Equipped with SNOWCONTACT soles, your boots are designed for maximum grip comfort for hiking and traction on snow. The location and height of the studs (3 mm) is inspired by lynx feet and are spaced strategically for optimal grip when hiking on snow on steep terrain. The surface and design of the studs are designed to perfectly grip the layer of hard snow and evacuate excess water to not slip.
How does the SNOWCONTACT technology used on the boot sole help me?
The SNOWCONTACT soles are made with a specific component and stud pattern that is designed to ensure the best possible grip and traction. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow. When walking on ice, the only way to ensure optimum safety is to add anti-slip grips to your boots.
Will your boots withstand regular use over the long-term?
Our engineers conduct laboratory tests to ensure that the product fully meets with your satisfaction in use. Our verifications include the following elements: quality of eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of the sole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
How do I choose the right footwear for snow hiking?
To be well equipped in winter, we recommend that you follow these guidelines : Warmth: warmth provided by a warm pair of socks (ideally containing a suitable percentage of wool) Breathability: Choose the sock according to the intensity of the hike and make sure you wear a breathable model to minimise moisture. Boot height: adjust the height of the sock to the height of the upper and preferably choose high models if you want more protection.
How to preserve the technical qualities of my boots?
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. As a result, the fabric does not soak up water and stays light, breathable and warm. A fabric is made water-repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment. Products (spray or liquid) for this purpose are available in our stores.
How does my product warranty work?
This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the sales 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.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and using various indicators. A score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the more eco-friendly products by comparing products of a similar type. Decathlon actively promotes this initiative.

Store your products in a well-ventilated room away from light and moisture.
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our designers create and develop products that are good, simple, and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly 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.
