Crocs can handle any weather. They were originally designed as boating shoes, so they can get soaked with zero consequences. That’s why families wear them all summer to the beach, the pool, and through rain showers, but (drumroll) it turns out there are tons of amazing Crocs for the fall and winter, too. Especially for kids.
Crocs can handle wet, they can handle snow, and they keep feet warm and dry without being heavy as lead. We love the following five Crocs for the colder months, and they all get great user reviews on Amazon.
These fleece-lined Crocs are beloved warm versions of the summertime staple, minus the holes, making them more watertight. “I needed comfort, warmth, and the ability to walk outside if needed,” said one reviewer and, indeed, these will take you from indoors to out when you need to head to the mailbox or get into the car. “I use them to slip on to take my dogs out in the backyard when there is snow,” noted another. Finally, one fan echoed many others with this review: “These are quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned.”

Kids get the fuzzy slippers, too! These come in sizes from toddler to big kid and in many bright shades. “I throw these in the washer when they get dirty and they come out looking as good as new,” said a parent who lives in the mountains with her kiddo. But a grandma who goes through winter in the desert with her grandkid loves them too, saying: “They slide on quick and easy, have a back strap to keep them in place, and she is able to put them on herself.”

Thousands of five-star reviews confirm that “These are the best rain boots” for kids. One parent explains, “They don't ever leak, as they are molded to be all one piece so there is nothing to come apart.” Another says, “they're literally half the weight of his old boots.” Just note that many users say they size up a bit so their kids can wear thick socks. The boots come in toddler and kid sizes and a rainbow of color options.

Wait, Crocs makes kids’ snow boots? It does, and they’re extra comfy. Reviewers say they’re particularly great for kids with wide feet. “These are just like the sandals that he wears all the time,” noted one reviewer. “He can independently take them on and off and if he’s happy, I am happy.” Another said, “I loved how light they are,” reiterating a lot of fan’s comments about all the selections in the Crocs universe.

Moms, these little booties are touted as rain boots and water shoes, and they may be all you need on days when there’s sleet or light snow. If you hate the dreaded “wintery mix” on many chilly days, know that these are meant for it. “These are my go-to rainboots,” wrote one reviewer. “Very comfy and waterproof.” Another said, “These are adorable! My feet were never cold, and I got a couple of compliments too!” The price can’t be beat, either!
