Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.
Feet: Use a ruler or tape measure to measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe) Be sure to measure both feet. Many people have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two.
Remember, feet can expand over a quarter size during a full day's walk so ensure you get the right fit.
For less than £30 (DofE discount on top), these are great boots. i'm not expecting to be able to walk to the South Pole in them, but for growing children who'll only get a few months out of them they are perfect.
Previous reviewers commented on the lack of waterproof ability. They're a fabric boot, which will need proofing to make it so.

Hi Gear Kinder II mens hiking boots
Only had these boots two months. Haven't done anything strenuous in them, just a bit of dog walking and they are literally falling apart. You get what you pay for!

I have just returned from a short dog walk in the rain wearing these boots and have had to wring my socks out! This is only the second time I have worn them and I'm really disappointed. I appreciate they are very inexpensive but the advert in the catalogue does say they are waterproof.I understand there are different degrees of 'waterproof' but I don't think total water ingress on a short dog walk on paved surfaces should test the boots beyond an acceptable level.I have always found Go Outdoors to provide good value for money, however, not in this case.

Not what I paid for
Brought these back in November since then I've done roughly 2 dog walks a day (40 mins each time across a mixture of pavement and grass/mud), a few short hikes and a weekend at cub camp.
They've pulled themselves apart, frayed at the seams and generally look like I've had them for more than two-and-a-half months.
Lucky to get 1 star. Steer clear!

Great product at a great price
My partner has wide feet and would soon say if these wernt any good, he said they were really comfortable and we walked for 8 hours in the Peak District so i can't understand how others have said they felt every stone in them, he didn't even wear thick hiking Socks so they must be a good fit for wider feet, great price too.

Lightweight and comfortable
These boots were light enough to pack for air travel, and proved to be waterproof and comfortable on Lapland trails. Unfortunately the toe end of one sole came slightly adrift. The boots continued to function adequately, although the faulty boot then leaked a little. Go Outdoors replaced the faulty pair without quibble, and the replacement boots are now destined for trekking in Norway. Certainly all I could ask at the price.

Kinder walking boots
Boots are very comfortable and worth the price
My boots were £28:00 with my discount card and not the £35 price as now stated so I was really pleased with my purchase.

waste of money
If I could give a minus score these would have one. Went walking in them but 20mins into the walk had to turn around had back to the car, could feel every thing through them, may as well gone in bare feet. The following day the bottom of my feet was bruised and sore for 2weeks. WHAT A TOTAL WAIST OF MONEY!!!

Bought these the day before I went walking in wales fit was good and nice and conformity walked 20 mile with no blisters puts some of the more expensive boots I’ve owned to shame.

Only gave these one star because I couldn't give no stars. My suggestion would be save your £35 and go walking in your socks as you would have more protection unless you particularly like being able to feel every grain of sand you walk on. Biggest waste of thirty five pounds since I was convinced to buy a handbrake for my canoe, but in the defence of the handbrake it does its job better than these boots do theirs.
