Junior or Adult boots for 14 year old?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My 14 year old son is 5'2" and around 107lbs. With a 25.5 boot there are both Junior and adult boots available. Is there a benefit to one vs. the other?

 

He is an intermediate skier who'd rather ski fast on Blue and Green trails than challenge himself and control his speed on blacks. When conditions permit he's always off the edge of the trails looking for things to jump, but he's no park rat.

Most likely a higher end jr boot or a short cuff adult boot. We get kids in trouble with boots with too much cuff height, boots that are too stiff, and much much too large.

(Jr boots have a shorter cuff height as do most women's boots.)
