While there aren't as many high boot options for boys as girls, the lads just might have the edge on the ankle boot category. From desert boots to high-tops, there are boots for nearly every occasion and style preference. For further personalization, kids can switch out neutral laces for bolder options.
Girls can rock most of these looks, too, so brothers and sisters can share fine footwear.
