Columbia Kid's Powderbug Plus Boot
These are highly practical and thoughtfully designed. The soles are sturdy with good grips and the interior is well insulated with a removable insert if it needs to be cleaned. The Velcro ankle strap enables a tighter fit to the foot to prevent the boot slipping off and the top toggle reduces the chance of snow getting in. The bots are not flexible but I don't think many are. I bought a larger size than needed for my 4 year old in the hope that they might last two winters. She has no trouble running in them and, despite no snow yet, I am confident that her feet will be warm and dry after one of our long expeditions in the snow.

Good quality boot
We bought these for our 3 year old son for an upcoming ski-ing holiday. They seem really sturdy and he loves stomping around like a storm trooper in them. A couple of early trial runs suggest they are plenty warm enough to keep little feet toasty, as they have a warm liner inside them which is removable for washing /drying. Other nice details include a label to write name and address on both the boots and liners, and a rubber bar on the heel to help pull them off.
