    Kids tramping boots/ gear

    I'm going to step up taking my daughter (8yrs)out into the high country . I myself wouldn't go into the hills in gum boots or sand shoes . I'm struggling to find decent solid foot wear . Any ideas . Also considering she's growing like a mushroom . $200 tramping boots are not going to get the use . I'm sure I'm not the only one with this dilemma

    we got some off Trademe, about $50. There are a few on there at the moment, but a bit of a lottery on sizes. We might have a spare pair at home my 9yr has grown out of , what size you after?

    Did that to get the youngest two into it while their feet were still growing (along with the appetites). They are part of the warehouse chain and they often share some of the same lines.

    Yeah, I got my boys a pair of HiTec from FCO, $70odd. Not waterproof, but have been sturdy enough so far. Expecting them to out grow them before they crap out anyway.

    Also got them a Deuter pack, with a harness adjustable to their height. Paid about $150 for them, but this can be readjusted as they grow, so won't outgrow it any time soon.
