The Dalbello Menace 4 is a perfect ski boot for your first time skier up to the solid intermediate junior skier. The Traditional Overlap four buckle design will help him get ready for the feel and flex or adult boots. Dalbello has the flex indexed just for shorter and lighter weight skiers to be able to bend and flex the boot to have control over their skis. The Low Contour Geometry Cuff is shorter in height, and a Velcro Strap will give them additional support and leverage as he flies down the mountain past you. If you have a junior skier that is ready for the support and stability of a four buckle boot, strap him into the Dalbello Menace 4 and watch them go!
