My oldest has the need for new boots and he happens to need the same size as dad wears. So it looks like the boy gets my old ones and I get new ones. One of the perks of being his sponsor Plus he'll just out grow them (he's only 14). I was looking at Alpinestar Tech 8 or 6's and the Fox Forma something's Of course my old Gaerne RX pro's have served me well at about half the cost of the two mentioned. What do you guys like about your boots or what would you buy? And by the way, if anyone needs some O'Neal Elements size 9's, that are in good shape....$50 plus shipping.
