I bought these for my 11 yr old. He has not been skiing yet, so I don't know how the boots perform, but according to him, they are easy on and off and very comfortable. I like the quality materials. I think it will be a great boot for him. I will report back after he uses them, if there are any challenges.

Not a big fan of these boots as they're very uncomfortable and were very tight on my calves. Entry and exit is very difficult and some somewhat painful.

              The buckles are highly adjustable, but they spin so sometimes one foot can be tighter than the other. Lots of fleece like material on the inside, and it'll keep your feet warm with fairly thin socks.

I like the quality materials. I think it will be a great boot for him. I will report back after he uses them, if there are any challenges.
