The Nordica Team 3 is a perfect boot for your little skier. The Team 3 is made with a progressive flex that gets stiffer with the more pressure and force that he puts on it, but it is still soft enough for your growing skier to be able to bend and flex it, for control over their skis. The Easy Entry Tongue flips open so it will be very easy for him to put on and take off their boots. Nordica's Comfort Fit Jr. Liner is designed just for smaller feet, to keep them warm and secure for all day comfort on the slopes. The Jr. Cuff Profile is shorter, so smaller skiers will have as large of a range of motion as possible, so they will be learning, and improving fast. If you are looking for a boot that will help your little skier progress and be comfortable in, the Nordica Team 3 will be a good one.
