Junior Ski Boots in Adult Bindings?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, I'm new to the board and I've done okay so far researching everything on my own regarding all the gear I need to get set up. However, I still need to order boots and I'm a little bit stumped right now!

 

I'm on Amazon looking around and I saw these (Nordica Patron Youth) boots and they look perfect for my price range. They do have them in 27.0, but I'm wondering if these would fit into the Rossignol Axial2 120 XL "Hybrid" bindings I ordered? I tried digging around to find an answer but couldn't find my question exactly. Can anyone please help!?

 

Thank you!

Junior boots have 2 different soles.  Up to about 21 or so, they have a narrower toe.  Over 21, they have the same toe as an adult boot.  If you are looking at a 27, it's  safe bet it has an adult size toe. OTOH I wouldn't buy boots on-line, unless they were so cheap I could turn them around on Ebay right away.

Junior bindings come in 2 sizes as well, and the high DIN junior race bindings can be a bargain for adults.

X2 - It's a bad idea to buy boots on line. Others will join the chorus to tell you that more than likely you will be wasting your money because you will not get the correct fit unless you have a great deal of experience with boot fitting. At the very least please read this so you will have some idea what to look for.
