Polars and penguins, perfectly warm.

Like penguins and polar bears, your little one's feet will stay warm and cozy even when there's a little chill in the air. Breathable boiled wool uppers keep feet warm and dry, but naturally prevent feet from overheating. And, these members of the animal kingdom don't mind a swim either: machine washable, they won't mind taking a dip now and then. An elastic collar provides a secure fit for little kickers.
