Now is the time to buys winter boots for kids, taking advantage of the Next clearance sale - these are reduced from £20-£22 down to £10 right now.
Available in sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12, I can vouch for the fact that these are sturdy, hard-wearing and well-made boots, as I invest in a pair for each of my boys every winter. I've never picked them up at this price though, so I'd move quickly to take advantage of the reduction if you're thinking of stocking up on winter clothes.
The velcro straps mean they're easy for kids to take on and off without pestering you for help with the laces, and we've found them to be water-resistant enough to withstand rain and even a bit of snow. My kids usually wear out their shoes before they grow out of them, but we often find that winter boots from Next will last more than one season because they're so durable.
Let's just hope the sun stays around for a good bit longer though...
