Some manufacturers make toddler hiking boots, but they are mostly for show. First, toddlers really can't hike, and they shouldn't you should carry them, because they could take a tumble on the trail and really hurt themselves.
In addition, toddler hiking boots may look adorable, but they might actually be too rigid for your toddler's growing feet, and that would do them more harm than good, and could harm their feet permanently.
If you must buy toddler hiking boots, make sure they fit perfectly, and your toddler only wears them for a few hours at the most. Put your toddler in a carry-pack and let them enjoy the trail that way!
