Boys' Waterproof Boot
My oldest boy is 9 and my youngest boy is 4 and I have bought these boots for them every winter since they could walk. they last all season, sometimes for 2 winters. I use them in place of snowboots and the boys love them. they even look nice when you dress them up and seem to fit better than some name brand boots I've tried.

As a woman with tiny feet...
Oddly enough, I'm not buying them for a 7-year old boy, but for myself: I'm a woman with size 5 feet and I actually realized that these boots in size 3 for boys fit me perfectly. For the price, they're very good and last all winter long: never had any problem with humidity or water during the winter, though I do feel I have to change them every 1 or 2 years. However, knowing I pay 30$ tax included for those, they're very cheap and quite good quality.
So if it works me, it'll certainly work for your son or little brother. My father and my brother had the same pair (in different sizes obviously) and they were very satisfied with these shoes.

I have also been buying these shoes for my son every year since he was an infant and he's now 7. They go with so many different outfits and he says they are comfortable. He gets a full winter/fall season out of them every year.

Takes a beating pretty well
I've been buying a pair of these for my son every year since he was two (he's 10 now). We live in a very wintery state and he hates (ie. refuses to wear) snow boots unless he's sledding or in his snow suit so I get these as an alternative for him to wear to school. They keep his feet pretty dry all winter (about 6 months) and I don't have to fight with him to put them on like I do with the snow boots. If you spray the boots with a leather protectant that helps waterproof them half way through the season, the color lasts longer.
They aren't pretty by the end of the winter, but for $25, they're worth it - and besides, he's usually out grown them by the next winter anyway.

I don't normally take time to write reviews, but I was going on-line to order a 2nd pair of these boots for my son and saw the negative review and had to counter-act it with a positive obviously. These have been great boots for my son. He doesn't keep shoes tied, and these were a great solution which gave him arch support, were easy to get on and overall held up well. He still gets down and crawls and plays, so the tips of them obviously can get scoffed up. They are a bit worn now, but that just give him the rugged look that Dad has with his work boots. I will definitely get more pairs of these as he grows as they are cute, durable, and can clean up well with a cloth :)

Looks good, but...
I bought these for my son last year. I am looking for something else this year. The upper material wore down on the toes so that the toe tips were shiney, and I could not fix it. They really looked bad two thirds through our winter weather. They were waterproof as promised, and I guess you could say they were durable as promised. But the toes were uncleanable, and the outer material wore off, and the shoes really looked cheap.
