    Insulated Youth Hunting Boots?

    For general all around hunting for kiddos.. Backpacking, day hike hunts, etc.
    Kiddo seems to run with cold feet, looking for a warm option for him that has decent quality. Thinking of using women's sizes?

    What are you all using?

    I am note sure the model, but we found some Keens on sale for my 12 year old boy. He used them last spring for his first spring bear hunt and hope that they still fit him for his cow hunt later this fall. They are a waterproof hiker with a little bit of insulation. Hopefully you can find something on sale with summer hiking coming to a close.

    Are they able to do much hiking in those? We have a few hours of hiking to do each day where we hunt so want to make sure he can move comfortably. I have been debating the Cabela's Iron Ridge Boot. Cabela's Youth Iron Ridge Hunting Boots with Thinsulate™ and GORE-TEX(R) : Cabela's
    He tried it on and it seemed ok, but I struggle a bit with ensuring they know what they are talking about it when it comes to fit with my kiddos. : )

    I just bought the iron ridges for my son for hunting. I've had to buy him new boots every year because he keeps growing. Last year was a pair of Herters and the year before was Danners, both were in women's sizes.

    He has a pair of Iron Ridges now as well. Hopefully they will do the trick. Seem like ok boots.

    I've had really good luck with Kamick boots. They have multiple styles to choose from.

    After some initial break in, my 12 year old son spent 4-5 days tramping around in the Cabela's Iron Ridges.

    1) They took a few miles to break in
    2) They held up to some seriously rough country
    3) Good traction

    "Waterproofness" not yet tested.

    All in all a good boot for a kiddo.
    But, in looking at Cabela's website, these boots are now sold out, and the men's version is on a big sale.... Not sure if they are coming back or not.... Go figure.....
