Western Chief 'Monster' Rain Boot (Walker, Toddler, Little Kid & Big Kid)
DO NOT BUY these Monster boots by Western Chief. We have gone through two pairs (one pair first purchased elsewhere and one pair through Nordstrom.com). My son loved them so when the first pair cracked in the heels, I could not return them eslewhere, so I thought I would try them again from Nordstrom instead. We had them two months and the heels cracked again. We live in a rainy climate and wet socks are no fun. We have previously owned the Fireman boots by Western Chief and they were fine. They are constructed a bit differently, I think.
These boots are awful. They are bad quality, not durable, they fall apart and rip. They are not made for active boys. Buy, and be disappointed.
These boots are so cute and my son receives comments on them every time he wears them. I only buy Western Chief boots since we've had nothing but great experiences with them. They are comfortable, they run true to size if he's wearing thick socks (or boot insert), my son loves them, and the quality really is great.
About the previous review with the torn boot - if you're purchasing these from Nordstrom you can take comfort in the fact that they will return the boots if ANY problem arises.
BROKEN IN FIVE WEEKS
I gave my son these boots for Christmas. It is now the five weeks later, and the lining is coming out. The boot also has a giant crack in it, making it no longer water proof. My son loved the boots, but he was not any harder on them than any other two year old. THEY ARE NOW USELESS. DO NOT BUY THESE.
