What to Look for in Snow Boots for Kids
05:36, 29/8/2009 .. LinkWhether your kids will need snow boots or winter boots depends largely on your local weather conditions, but if your children are exposed to snowy, icy, or wet conditions, it's important to recognize the difference between winter boots and snow boots. To be sure you're kids stay warm and dry, buy ugg boots with waterproof uppers, traction outsoles and interior insulations. The ugg classic tall boots should extend beyond the ankle, and the shaft should fit snugly, or have a top closure to prevent snow from getting down into the boots. For maximum protection from the elements, opt for pull-on or collared boots with substantial closures instead of boots with movable tongues or laces that could come untied. Top laces or drawstring ties are good as they help tighten the tops of the boots, preventing snow and ice from entering.Front laces are very helpful for insuring a good fit, but they should have some kind of lock closure that will keep them tied.
How do you know
05:31, 29/8/2009 .. LinkHow do you know if those knee-high ugg sundanceboots you saw on that web site will fit your calves? If you're tall, will they be knee-highs or calf-highs? And what exactly is the shaft of a boot?Some of the more common boot terms are defined below, and I've also included a few measuring tips to help you find exactly the boots you're looking for.
As one would expect, these boots have zippers, usually on the inseam. It's a good idea to pay attention to how long the zipper is -- especially with taller boots. A boot with a long zipper will be easiest to get on and off.
This is the measurement around widest part of the shaft of the boot. To see if tall boots will fit your calves, measure around the widest part of your calf, and compare your measurement to the shaft circumference.
This measurement is taken on the inside seam of the boot, and is measured from where the shaft meets to sole of the boot, to the top of the shaft. To determine where the top of a boot will hit on your leg, measure the height of the shaft against the inside of your leg, starting at your instep.
Pull on Boots:These ugg sheepskin boots have no zippers, laces or other means of closure, they're simply pulled on and off.Pull-on boots will sometimes have tabs to aid in getting them on and off, and many times will feature goring as well.When putting on tall pull-on boots, it's easiest to scrunch the shaft of the boot down, and insert your foot into the bottom of the boot -- the same way you put on socks or hose. Pull on boots are sometimes problematic for people with high arches to get on.

Wearing Shoesugg boots in your own house? Would you prefer that visitors to your house remove their UGGs upon entering?
In some parts of the world, there are very clear answers to these questions, but here in the States, the masses seem fairly divided on the issue.
