We were lucky enough to be gifted and handed down a lot of cute pairs of boots for the newborn and baby stage. However, I was way too intimidated by a lot of the boots to actually use them. Let me explain — many of the boots for babies that age don’t zip up the sides. I was too scared to try and cram a delicate baby foot and ankle into a boot, which meant he didn’t wear a lot of the cute ones we had. Now that he runs away from me when I try to put shoes on him (screaming, “No shoe! No shoe!”), I have a new reason to appreciate shoes that zip, like this one. Also, so many extra credit points for both being waterproof AND having a zipper on the side. These are absolutely adorable, and also unisex, but if you’re more into the duck boot look, I recommend these. They’re a both a little pricey for kids’ shoes, but I know my son is going to do a lot of snow and puddle sloshing this winter, so I want to be prepared. The black pair is $64.95 and the duck boot style is $74.95–$84.95 at Nordstrom. Obie Waterproof Boot
