My nine-year-old is riding these for the first time this season - they're exceptionally solid, very no-frills boots. Sizing runs true - if your little guy wears a 1.5, buy the size 2. The boa system is extremely easy for youngsters to use, and it was VERY nice to not have to deal with lacing boots each morning. Subtle graphics let the world know he's ready to throw it down.
Only knock is that there was ZERO documentation in the box with the boots - how/where the sizing shims are is therefore a bit of a mystery. I'm sure it's easy to figure out, but minimal documentation would be a nice gesture on a $100 kid's boot.
A super-solid board for little groms. It's my son's first board, and I'm guessing we'll have it for a while based on a look at the construction. The binding mounts are just like the grown-up boards, which is great - I mounted the bindings at the beginning of a week-long trip, and they hadn't loosened at all when I pulled them off to pack up. Worth noting that the board is drilled to accept any binding, three- or four-hole, so you're not necessarily confined to Burton's (excellent) junior bindings.
My nine-year-old is riding these for the first time this year, and they're excellent bindings - from the mounting system to on-mountain use. I was stunned to find that the highbacks can be adjusted independently of the binding, allowing you to square them with the edge of the board - makes proper riding much easier, and this wasn't a commonly available bit of tech a few years ago. The toe strap is Burton's excellent "cap strap" - no downward binding pressure on little toes. Very high-quality strap mechanisms. Sizing - my son's in size-two boots, and I had to go to the smallest adjustments to make the bindings work. No biggie, but if you're smaller than a size two these aren't going to work for you.
