The 6 Best Kids' Snowboard Boots of 2022-2023

By: Brittany Mellander: Assistant Snowboard Buyer | October 10, 2022

 

Every season for aspiring young boarders should start with a soft, easy Boa snowboard boot. Kids' snowboard boots come in many options, whether they come in the form of liner-less boots for first-timers, or boots with an internal lacing system and J-Bars for added support. We’ve done our homework to find kid’s boots designed with all the best features, but still come in at a parent-happy price point. Youth boots feature moldable liners, reflective liners, and stylish prints. Beyond these features, out-of-the-box comfort is essential to kids’ snowboard boots.

New This Year:

Customization comes in the form of progression-oriented design, allowing boots to grow with young riders from a fit and performance perspective. Whether your children are riding the chairlift or the magic carpet, these are the best models to focus on when buying kids' snowboard boots.

Hey everyone I’m the Assistant Snowboard Buyer here at evo! Like many in the industry, I've always been active. Growing up on the beaches of Southern California, skating and surfing were a part of my life, so when I picked a snow sport at the age of 8, snowboarding was a no-brainer! I always enjoyed boarding but really found my passion for it in college where I joined the ski & snowboard club spending most weekends and holidays going up to Big Bear and MT High. After college, I enjoyed the ski bum life for a year in Mammoth as a lift operator before an injury cut my time there short. Shortly after, I found myself with the opportunity to move up to Washington to be closer to the mountains and nature.

About 7 years ago when I first moved up here I knew with my background that working in a ski and snowboard shop was the right move. I was a snowboard sales associate at a shop for about 3 years before joining the evo Seattle store. There I helped train snowboard department new hires and honed my bootfitting skills. I most recently joined the snowboard buying team last October and love that I’ve landed a career in snowboarding and still have the opportunity to get plenty of days on the hill!
