Hi! I am looking for ski boots for my 7 year old son. He has been on rental equipment for the past 3 seasons, but we just invested in skis (K2 Bad Seed 119) so now need to buy some boots as well. He is skinny and light--49" tall, 52 lbs, relatively narrow foot, and an advanced skier (level 8+) who gets in about 40 days a year. Mondo size 20.5. Any thoughts on whether we should go with the Lange RSJ 50 (3 buckles, 50 flex) or the Lange RSJ 60 (4 buckles, 60 flex)? Or the Nordica Doberman Team 60 (4 buckles, 55 flex)? No local ski shops with good junior selection, so I am going to order a couple of pairs and shell-fit myself at home. Thanks!
Forgot to say: His last pair of rental boots were Rossi J3. Not buying those because the shell seemed really flimsy and junky to me; they were new when we rented but look shot after 1 season. He was a 20.5 in those (with room to spare), which is what I based the sizing off.
