My son is new to riding and we have only been riding in fields (wearing helmet, googles, and gloves), but I'd like to get him some boots so that he can get used to the feel of riding with boots. I bought him some Alpinestars Tech 3S youth boots, and then returned them because the buckles seemed like garbage to me (no offense to anyone that likes these boots). They were unbelievably hard to unbuckle, so much so that the small nibs used to keep the buckles closed were either damaging the mating buckle recess or being sheared off and making the buckle pop open. Anyway, locals shops here do not have a good selection, so what are your kids using for boots? Also, I should add, he is not racing, and will not be racing, but later this season I expect that we will move from riding fields to doing some light trail riding. Thanks for any recommendations.
