My criteria for selecting rain boots for my kids is pretty simple: The boots need to keep their feet dry. But, now that I’ve found Western Chief Kids’ lighted boots, and I know my kids are going to be begging for their boots to do more than just keep them warm, I am certain I’ll be adding one more box to that checklist: Light up.

With a bright neon light in the heel that is activated with every step, Western Chief’s lighted boots will make jumping in puddles a bit more dazzling. I also like that their blinking steps will make our kids a bit more visible while they are dancing down the sidewalk, especially on those gray, gloomy days when the sun is hiding behind the clouds.

Western Chief Kids' lighted bug-style rain boots for kids will make splashing in puddles even more fun!

We’re already big fans of Western Chief rain boots because they’re roomy, have good traction, and they come with handles making it easy for little hands to pull on all by themselves. The light-up rain boots, which come in toddler and youth sizes, are all that jazz and more. I think they’ll be such a hit this spring season, you may have trouble getting your kids to take them off when they finally come back indoors.
