Children's Ski Boots

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Would anyone recommend purchasing children's ski boots for <8 years old? It seems like just doing a season rental is the best way to go here since kids are growing so fast.

Any thoughts?

loads of shops do a buy back on kids boots, i guess it really depends if they have had trouble in rentals, whilst not the best thing to use if there are no problems you may be able to save a little and get better boots for them as they improve, just don't put them in oversize boots with 3 pairs of socks on

as the parent of four, when I rented children's boots, I would rent through the pile for the newer ones (duh!), but newer boots are less packed out and therefore warmer.

I am less concerned with most of the fit zones on a kids boot, but have found that as long as the ankle is tight the kids can ski just fine. 6-8 years old is the limit for this rule, though.

If your kids are stronger skiers, you'll have to buck up and purchase good fitting boots. Been there done that.

We do a buy back program for kids under 11. We then will sell the boots that we buy back for a pretty large discount. It all depends on your particular situation as to what works best for you.
