Kids don’t have to buy their own shoes, but parents certainly know the value of proper shoe and boot care, so footwear will last for a few seasons of wear. Shoe polish and waterproofing treatments are among the many kids’ footwear accessories that can extend the life of a shoe, particularly in winter when snow, ice and road salts take their toll on leather. Another footwear accessory kids love is the boot warmer, a plug-in insert that can pre-warm kids’ boots for a day on the slopes (everyone knows feet that start out warm stand a better chance of staying warm throughout the day), or dry out the boot liners after a day of hard skiing or boarding. For good-quality shoe polish and shoe waterproofing treatments, look to Nikwax and the Lincoln Shoe Polish Company. For kids’ boot warmers, try MaxxDry.
