We have 4 active boys at home that love to be outside especially camping, backpacking, exploring, and hiking. Even though it’s winter time it doesn’t stop our 10 year old from getting outdoors and having fun. We recently received the Khombu Jason Boots from Famous Footwear for review, and they are perfect – from outdoor exploration to walking home from school or even recess. Jason Khombu Boots were provided for review purposes. All opinions expressed are my own.
Jason Khombu Review- Perfect For Active Boys
The Khombu Jason Boots are a hiking style boot made out of leather. My son loves that they look rugged and not so “little kid”. He’s in 5th grade now – that’s a big kid in his book. He doesn’t want to look like he’s wearing little kid boots to school so these are great for keeping his feet warm and dry which make mom feel good while he gets to feel like he’s the big kid he is.
We have a ton of snow here! He jumped at the opportunity to pose for a picture in it especially since I said we’d be quick enough he didn’t have to put his jacket on.
Are khombu boots waterproof?
These khombu hiking boots are waterproof and have great traction which is really important. We’ve actually seen more ice this winter than snow so the snow we do have has been really wet and the trails, roads, and paths have been pretty slippery. The traction outsole keeps him upright and the waterproof keeps his feet dry for those days he’s exploring the heavy, wet snow.
There are pull loops at the tongue and heel that making pulling the boots on easy. I don’t see him standing on the heel of the boot wiggling and squirming, trying to force his foot in like he does with other shoes. I know this will help make these boots last a lot longer.
We’ve still got a lot of weeks of winter left here and I know he’ll keep wearing the Kids’ Jason Khombu Boots when he’s out and about but I also know that he can’t wait to wear them once the snow is gone when we can really hike and backpack. We’re counting down the days. We’ll be out on the trails soon and he’ll be ready in his hiking boots!
