SavageBiff85 lbs that correct?
mystery3Where do you live? Ski?
Really this is a question to bring up with a competent bootfitter who can assess strength, anatomy, mobility, etc.
TaxiRooterThanks for the reply. Ski in New England mostly. We do plan to meet with a boot fitter in a couple of weeks, but I am trying to set expectations early as he has certain things stuck in his head! Figured this forum is the best place to ask for now. I am trying to simply understand if a 90 flex is out of the realm of possibility for someone with the metrics provided. We'll get the right fit for sure.

DolanReloadedIf a boot fits well then its ok for it to be a harder mold of plastic. Im sure 90 isnt too hard for him tho
TaxiRooterI appreciate the insight. Opens a lot more options for him. Just a weird size (foot too big for his body).
tomPietrowskiI think you will find he will be closer to a 24 if he wears a 7.5. I wear a 9.5-10 and wear a 26 boot. You can really base boot six from shoe size as no one wears shoes that really fit. If you think about a ski boot your toes want to be hiring the front when you standup straight. If this was how we wore regular shoes we would have bruised toes all the time. So best to forget shoe size. I find the best way to show people what size they are is to physically show them when I measure. Can’t really argue size when you see it yourself.
KilaTsunamiomg just buy the full tilts already ffs
dizzydizzyYour kid should definitely not wear a 25.5 boot at 12 years old and 5' tall. I wear an adult size 9.5 as a 5'10'' 30 year old and I wear a 25.5 boot
Get him a 4 buckle kids boot in like a 24, and probably be prepared to buy an adult boot in a 25.5 in a year or two. i made the mistake of getting way too large boots when i started freestyle skiing, same age, same size, and it makes it very very difficult to ski. as always, fit is the most important thing about boots...shin bang, for example, happens from skiing backseat and having too large boots. don't buy full tilts just cause you see them a lot in the park, go try on 10 pairs of boots and buy the one that fits
TaxiRooterSon? Is that you? haha. Yeah, Yeah. He'll get FTs I have no doubt.
