Road Testing Crocs Rain Boots

The boys were thrilled when their Crocs Handle It Rain Boots (£19.99) arrived; they have had Crocs before but never in this format until now.

I think Crocs will be our go to brand for rain boots from now on though, my boys don’t tend to follow the get wet below the rim of your boot guidance I offer!  Generally their rain boot then ends up half full of water… then getting their foot back out with wet trousers is quite a feat!  But the biggest difficulty is always drying out the boots before they start to smell… I have had no such problem with their new Crocs, they have dried out very quickly.  I didn’t need to stuff them full of newspaper to absorb the dampness, they just dried out naturally, without any fuss.

They are lightweight and comfy; the boys covered lots of different terrain with them on and never grumbled about discomfort.  

They dangled their feet in a stream and the water did not enter their boots, so they seem quite watertight!  It’s only when they get a bit carried away that the water actually gets in (but only ever through the top of the boot!).

We love the design details, the bright colours and the handles to help children put them on easily.  At the very top of the rain boot there are three little holes, which can be used to add shoe charms to customise their boot!  I have spotted some Star Wars designs on the Crocs website and a clever spinning helicopter which I think would be popular with my pair.  They certainly make the rain boots even more exciting but as they are now they have been very well received by the boys.  They are vivid rain boots with plenty of personality just like my boys!

We made sure we give them a thorough testing and were very impressed all round.  They seem durable which is good as we are quite an active family, we enjoy long walks, geocaching and outdoor adventures!  Youngest rates his rain boots a double thumbs up!
