Lisa’s favourite quote is “There is no such thing as bad weather; only inappropriate clothing”.
As an active mom based on Canada’s wet and rugged West Coast, Lisa discovered that finding warm footwear for her young kids was near impossible. With her five-month old son in a backpack, Lisa resorted to wrapping scarves around her son’s legs to keep him warm. When she met another mom with a boot that look a lot like a fleece-lined chalk bag (which was made-by-hand for her child), Lisa instantly knew that these booties could fill a need in the market. Together, they created some samples and attended their first trade show in 2004.
While the original booties were created out of necessity, the company has grown out of a passion for the products’ ability to help parents connect with their kids in the great outdoors. With Lisa leading a growing team and closely involved in production at their head office in Vancouver, BC, the company continues to flourish into one of the dominant manufacturers of versatile children’s outdoor gear.

“Ever try to watch a toddler take their first steps in the snow in chunky winter boots?
STONZ BOOTIES ARE THE ANSWER! I was elated when Stonz offered me their product to test with my one year old daughter! I also have a three year old son, and we spend so much time outdoors, running around. In the early mornings, the grass is often wet, and these booties are perfect. I can place them over her bare feet and away she goes, or I can slip them over her socks, or even soft soled shoes! The bottoms of Stonz booties come covered with a grip, so even when they are wet, she can still safely climb plastic and wooden playstructures safely.”

“Just wanted to let you know that we recently moved to Prince George and had to get the linerz for our son's boots. We loved the boots before when we were in Vancouver...but now, they are even better! They are just perfect for this snowy weather! They are so easy to put on and the boots actually stay on his feet when we carry him too. Thank you for an incredible product!”

“I just wanted to let you know that your boots are "the best". I have an 11 month old and it was a fight to get his boots on hime every day. Not only would they eventually work themselves off his feet but he would do everything in his power to get them off. With yours we tell him how nice his boots are and he just plays with the straps and leaves them on. I kinow your boots have helped my son enjoy the winter season more because his feet are more comfortable. I thank you so much and will tell every new mom I know about them.”
