About Strideline Socks

We selected this funky Strideline youth performance sock for some of our boys who are active on street hockey teams in the winter. The Strideline sweat wicking pads coupled with a unique heal design means our athletic boys have a sock that can hold up to the fast pace movement of hockey and can still keep their feet warm during those especially cold hockey games.



Winter Boots for Kids

Stride Rite Snoot bootsStride Rite Snoot

Ages:  Baby, Toddlers, Preschoolers

Retail Price: $50-$55

Available for sale Stride Rite.

About the Stride Rite Snoot

The Stride Rite Snoot offers the best features of a sneaker and boot combined. It’s equipped with the flexible and lightweight comfort of a Made2Play sneaker, plus the insulated, seam-sealed, water-resistant weather protection of a boot. Adjustable straps and a wide opening make the boots easy to slip on even the squirmiest of feet. Better yet, the Snoot is machine washable and collapsible to fit in any bag while on-the-go.

The Snoot is available for Baby/Toddler ($50; sizes 4-8 M, W) and Preschool ($55; sizes 8.5-11 M, W) and comes in pink, purple, cobalt and black as well as character designs from the Frozen and Star Wars!


Stride Rite Snoot boots purpleNancy’s Review of the Stride Rite Snoot: The Stride Rite Snoot is the most lightweight snow boot I have come across. It was great to see my daughter be able to actually run through the front yard in the snow, rather than having to trudge around in a far-too-heavy boot. The adjustable straps make it a cinch to create a seal to your child’s leg, making it impossible for snow to find a way inside. Hooray for little feet that stay warm and dry!

Martina’s Review of the Stride Rite Snoot: My son is 2 1/2 and often VERY hard on his boots. He tried the Stride Rite Snoot boot in a size 9. The boots were easy to put on and to adjust to fit him snugly to keep the elements out. The boots also have a fleece lining that keeps the feet toasty and he commented on how “comfy” they were. He wore the boots to play in the snow & mud, and as dirty as he got them, they cleaned up so easily!  I would highly recommend these boots to any mother of an active toddler.
