As we move into Fall, it is time to think about some boots to make sure that outside time isn't cut short by bulky, cumbersome footwear! Don't let the fun be done like it was for our little boy when he first started walking and we hadn't yet invented MYMAYU boots! (That's him and his big brother 6 years ago in the photos above!)
You have asked us to make a chart comparing the styles that we have in stock, so here it is!
Traveller, Trekker and Wanderer boots all have the same shape of sole. This means lots of room in the toe box and room for liners and wool socks. The first style, Explorer, is narrower.
In a nutshell, for the most flexible and watertight boots, go for our newest version the Traveller!
Please note that none of the boots are lined and we highly recommend using wool socks at all times. In colder, wetter weather, we recommend liners and wool socks to keep feet drier and warmer.
While all of our boots can be worn in the snow, MYMAYU boots are minimal and are not generally meant for extremely cold temperatures. We do not have an official temperature rating and we always recommend that parents check in with their kids about warmth and comfort in all situations.
If you are looking for boots that fit over AFOs, we have had customers use both the Trekker and Wanderer boots with success. Customer feedback has been that the Traveller boots unfortunately do not fit over AFOs.
