Butler Boot Expands Kids’ All-Weather Line For Spring 2016

Butler Boot’s penguin logo may have some  thinking its collection of children’s all-season weatherproof  looks are from the North Pole. But the boots are made in South Bend, Ind., in a former Studebaker car factory.

The Montreal, Canada-based company’s debut style was the Emperor, a tall waterproof boot that does double duty as an overshoe or performs on its own with an insulated liner. Based on the popularity of the Emperor, a companion low-cut version, the Rockhopper, is coming for spring ’16.

Made of a durable TPE compound that’s both lead-free and phthalate-free, the boots’ unique design features an accordion-style opening with a Velcro close that allows for easy on and off.

The four-season liner is made of a three-part lamination system featuring Agion, an antimicrobial agent that guards against bacteria; Breathe Right, a breathable compression foam; and Skyline polyester on the outside to boost the moisture-wicking effect. There’s also a dual-density footbed that’s  coated with Agion to maximize comfort and foot health.

While the Emperor style is available for infants’ size 8 through youth size 3, the new Rockhopper comes in infants’ size 5 to youth 5. Prices for the Enperor range from $50 for the unlined to $75 for the lined; the Rockhopper costs $30 unlined and $45 lined.

The boots, which are available in a range of colors, can be found at Butlerboot.com and select retailers.
