The problem isn’t so much in finding the perfect hiking boot for my son, but rather once we find it is to take it off of him.
With my husband being a climber and my oldest boy following in his papa’s footsteps certain tools are necessary. And I’m not talking about the climbing equipment which is crucial for climbers. The first tool is shoes.
Most climbing walls aren’t right off a road and easy to get to, you normally need to hike to them. So hiking boots are essential.
Merrell shoes have been in my husband’s and mine life for more than a decade. All our outdoor shoes and even some sneakers are by them. They are super reliable, waterproof and comfortable. So it was a natural step to take when it was time to find boots for my son.
Boys’ Chameleon Spin Waterproof Walking Boots fit the bill perfectly. They are waterproof, breathable and resistant so they can be used outdoors, but their design also makes them appropriate for everyday use.
I think my son took the everyday use way too much to heart. He has yet to part with them. He rides his bike, skateboard, plays futbol and everything else you can think of with these shoes.
And they with stand it all.
Normally, I shop directly via Merrell website or Amazon, but I found this cool store: Blacks which had a great deal going on and free international shipping at the time of sale. Since I live in Guatemala, free international shipping is a big deal for us.
