Guide to winterboots - with TEX

First and foremost, our winter boots are made to keep feet warm and dry during winter. We achieve this with the use of materials such as leather, suede, rubber or wool lining combined with the TEX membrane. All the materials used in our boots are carefully selected and 100% natural. Bisgaard winter boots consist of three different layers: The lining, the TEX membrane and the leather, as well as a rubber outer sole. These layers make the boots breathable, soft and flexible while also preventing water intake and retention.

TEX winter boots for children

TEX is a thin membrane between our lining and upper leather shell. It is both isolating and waterproof, keeping water from penetrating the boot while also allowing moisture and excess heat to escape. The TEX membrane gives our boots complete breathability, which in turn guarantees warm and dry feet throughout the cold, wet winter months. Our TEX winter boots have the same unique fit as our regular shoes, just with added security. With a keen insight into the natural development of feet, our many designs have great form and carefully selected details. 

We stock a broad selection of boots with a variety of closures, colors and patterns. The overall design and the small, yet important details are carefully thought out by our design team. The great quality of our TEX winter boots can be seen as well as felt.

Caring for children's winter boots

Leather is generally a very durable material, but your child's winter boots can last even longer with a bit of additional care. The leather can be treated with beeswax spray, as it is easy to apply and helps preserve the leather's elasticity and exclusive appearance. If you choose to do this, to help the boots remain durable, you must give them time to dry. 

Shoe polish (either neutral or in a color matching that of the boots) can also be used to help restore the appearance of the boots. TEX membrane boots should be cared for in the same way. It is important to use a permeating product that is free from silicone. Silicone can block the TEX membrane's pores that the boots rely on for their breathability and good internal climate. There are permeating products that are particularly suited for shoes and boots with TEX membranes.

Room for growth in children's winter boots

We recommend buying winter boots with a little extra room for growth. This allows for space, flexibility and the opportunity for your children's feet to grow. This means you can go a longer time before having to purchase a new pair in a bigger size. In order to find the right size, make sure to measure your child's foot from their heel to their longest toe. One way to do this is by having your child stand with their heel against a wall, placing a book by the longest toe, and measuring the distance between the wall and the book.

You can find the right shoe size with the recommended room for growth in our size guide.
