My 5 year old little guy is very particular about what he does and does not like. These boots won his approval without being asked. I was thinking about recess with a classroom full of kindergarteners when I purchased these. In the rush to get dressed without the same level of help from home, little to no assistance is needed. They reach his calf. Maybe sitting to take them off to avoid falling over the boot, but for the most part they are very easy to get on and off. They keep his feet very warm and he's tried them by stomping in ice. The insulation is phenomenal and the boot is surprisingly lightweight. Nothing bad to say at all. I'm satisfied!
