A Boy and His Boots || Sterling’s Favorite Shoes

Nov 20, 2014


I have to admit Sterling is very opinionated when it comes to what he wears, from his outfits to his shoes.  I don’t know if it is because he is 4 and sassy or just because he is my child (and we all know I am particular about my outfits).  Either way he tells me what he wants to wear every SINGLE day.  I gave up the battle a long time ago and let him wear what he wants.  Sometimes I cringe at what he puts together and sometimes I am amazed at what he put together and proud of his style, either way I let Sterling be Sterling.

He loves shoes and oddly enough shoes are some of my favorite things to buy for him.  I feel like you get your money’s worth out of shoes more than clothes because they are worn more frequently.  Once the cold weather hits Sterling is all about boots.  I am not kidding he wears them basically everyday, either his cowboy boots or his Hunter Boots.  Both have been worth every single penny we paid for them;  they are well worn and well loved.

I am a huge fan of  Hunter Boots, they can get dirty and all you have to do is wipe them down.  Sterling picked out the navy for his boots which I love because they go
with everything.  Best part they are easy to put on unlike some other rain boots.  They also come in black and dark green.  Sterling got these last year for Christmas and they still fit so they last awhile if you buy the right size.

 He even insisted on wearing them for our Christmas Card pictures, I almost protested but decided they make him happy and show off his personality.  I will smile every year when I look at our cards.

If you have a little girl they also come in gloss pink and red which I adore.

They also come in a bit different style with a bigger heel and buckle if you like that look better.  This style is made for the older kids as well.

 Do any of ya’ll use the socks with the Hunter Boots?  Most of them are on the girly side but I kind of love these mustache ones.  I think I am ordering a pair for Sterling’s stocking.  They come in blue, red, and green- really cute colors.

A few other sock options:
Fleece Socks | Geometric Socks | Cardigan Knit Socks | Cable Knit Socks | Yellow Fleece Socks | Navy Fleece Socks


You can view all the kids Hunter Boots Here, Nordstrom has a great selection.

His other favorite pair of shoes are his cowboy boots.  It honestly makes me smile every time he puts them on.  I didn’t want to drop $100 on Frye boots when I wasn’t sure how often he would wear them.  Little did I know he would want to wear them everyday.  These boots are $39 and pretty awesome.  We went with dark brown but they also come in black, metallic pink, gold glitter, and red.

If you want to invest and spend a little more these Frye boots are pretty darn cute and on sale.

I know most of you think of toys for gifts for the kids but shoes are a great practical gift that can be fun too.

Most kids love a fun rain boot or cowboy boot.  A few of our favorite rain boots and cowboy boots are below.  All from Nordstrom who by far has the best kids selection of shoes and if you live in Charlotte you must stop by the shoe department in the store.  Sterling is obsessed with the big fish tank there, plus free balloons equals a great combo for shopping.
