Should I size up for Kids rain boots?
Sizing for rain boots is pretty simple. They don’t come in half-sizes so generally you round up from what your child is measuring to give them room to grow.
Should rain boots be tight or loose?
Rain boots should fit a little loose, but not too loose. You want to be able to wear a thick pair of socks and still have space to wiggle your toes. However, your boot should not be so loose that your heels pop up when you walk.
What size should I get for rain boots?
Choose rain boots one size larger than your normal shoe size. Rain boots in your normal shoe size tend to make your legs appear thick.
