No Roce dealers here in the area but I like the concept of this boot. I see a lot of feedback on these for what looks like the smaller and medium sizes. However, does anyone have any feedback for older kids into the 3 buckle size 22.5-25.5 range of boot that they sell?
Son is 9, current boot size is a 22 and an intermediate but recreational skier. He does not ski hard but does enjoy it. We go about 7-8 times a year. Longest stretch so far we got 2 seasons out of his last set. Some boots such as Dalbello seem to have models that fit a small range and it kind of worked out for us. However, I am not counting on that going forward with how much he just grew in 6 months.
Comfort, warmth, and fit are obviously important. However, having wide feet he already is limited to only a few brands of boots to begin with. Trading up every year or two so far has been our routine and our ski shop does a 50% value discount up to 2 years out to by new boots.
Putting cost aside, we hate shopping for boots and so does my son. That is bad as he is sometimes so anxious to get out of the store that he will agree to a boot fitting just to get the heck out of there.
