Rain, rain, don’t go away! Not only will you bring May flowers but you’ll provide a plethora of puddles for my 6-year-old to dance in. How can I deny her that as we wax from winter to spring slush and the Uggs go into hiding? Most parents consider Keen for summer days at the waterpark or well-trodden trails through their back woods. But Keens have been my go-to shoe for back to school and beyond. With fun colors, durable materials, water-resistant construction, Keen’s (should-be) patented comfort, and lug sole, kids really don’t need anything else on their feet except socks.
My little fashionista wears skirts and dresses even in snow. The knee-high boots not only look great with her clothes but I don’t worry about cold, damp, smelly feet like I might in those traditional rubber rain boots. I can thank the KEEN.DRY waterproof membrane and moisture-wicking fabric lining for that. The plaid-print flannel collar adds a touch of flare and helps prevent chafing. Finally, the side zip lets her don them herself which means there’s one less thing to do on our race to the car in the morning.
Uggs are cool but hot and they’re not made for dancing in the rain. Sage’s Keens are. The Darby is on closeout all over the web. Grab a pair while you still can. $66.
