Boys' Waterproof Boot
Good Fit and Rugged
I bought these boots for myself since a size 5 in boys fits my size 6 1/2-7 in womens. I only bought them as a cheap alternative when I walk my dog early in the morning and want to throw boots on. (My Timberlands take forever to lace up). But since I bought them they are more comfortable, warm and easier to put on than my Tims. Really a nice boot. They also look and feel good. I would buy another pair if I needed to.

NOT COMPLETELY WATERPROOF
I have had them a couple years, they still look pretty good, fit good, pretty sturdy. I have one complaint. They are NOT waterproof. They are waterproof up to an extent but if you are standing in a puddle shoveling slush, the water will find a way in!

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.
