Stonz Boot Review

Stonz Rain Boots
Stonz is probably most known for their outdoor baby booties, but they are branching out into rain bootz as well as winter bootz as their clientele grows. They sent us a pair of their Rain Bootz to try out. Here's what we thought...

Overall Rating: Perfect boot for Southeast Alaskan kids!

  • 100% Natural Rubber
  • Durable and tear resistant, yet flexible and comfortable
  • Quick dry 100% cotton liner
  • PVC-free
  • Phthalate-free
  • Lead-free
  • Formaldehyde-free
  • You can purchase a pair linerz for these bootz to boost their insulation = warmth
  • Come in sizes for kids 4 years to 10 years of age or 4t to youth 4
  •  Come in a wide array of colors that range from gender neutral to more gender specific if you like.
Here's a great video from the company's website : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU5rExuYiho

While we haven't tried the boots with the liners, we think the combo makes the perfect boot, giving kids options for every season in our rainforest climate. Pull on wool socks and add a foot warmer and you have a solution for even the coldest of winter days in Southeast Alaska!

Taiga Trekkers Around the Globe

It's been just over a year since our last Trek and my family moved down to Juneau for my husband's work. Just this week I had the pleasure of meeting up with one of our Dads for breakfast as he flies through Juneau, literally... He's an Alaskan Airline pilot. We also hope to see a TT alum family that recently moved to Haines when we sail up there this weekend for the State Fair.

It is wonderful to reconnect with such great people we've met on the trail over the years and even more amazing to see how the kids have grown and how they've remained connected to the outdoors and feel so comfortable adventuring around in it!

If you and your family happen to be visiting Juneau please connect with me. The boys and I would love to see you! We'll do the same if we happen to be in your neck of the woods. Right now we have families who have trekked with us now living in Scotland, Trinidad, Australia, Denmark, Costa Rica, Japan, Hawaii, Texas, California, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, France, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia!  We're taking over the world:)! It's fun to keep up with everyone through the magic of social media!
