Maybe you’re prepping a future Olympian skimo racer, or maybe you just want to get the family out touring. Finally, a touring boot designed with youth in mind, the Movement Alp Tracks Explorer Jr can bring those dreams to reality. With 62° of ankle-articulation, the boot walks comparably to lightweight adult touring boots. Combine that with the quick-release top buckle/strap and the ergonomic ski/walk mechanism and your kids may just beat you uphill and through transitions. Movement has hit the bullseye with this boot in terms of simplicity, skiability, and price. The Alp Tracks Explorer may not alleviate all tears on your family’s day out, but it has set a high mark for junior touring boots.

  • 4-piece construction with a two-piece tongue making it easier to put on the boot without sacrificing ski performance.
  • Simple buckle-system with integrated power-strap for ease-of-use and reliability.
  • Thermo-moldable ULTRALON liner perfectly optimizes for foot comfort.
  • Polyurethane lower and cuff makes the boot durable yet light for those small legs.
  • Quick ski-hike mode is simple and ergonomic, accessible by hand or ski-pole.
  • Grippy SKYWALK rubber bases so kids will only go head-over-heels for skiing.
  • Certified DYNAFIT tech-inserts ensure safe and reliable binding entry and release.

Update 2019/20: Movement updated the shell construction, but kept the same snazzy white and orange graphics.

My kids are delighted with these boots. They are ski racers, but they are very good skiiers and have not found that they comprise anything on the downhill. And of course coming from downhill boots in clunky frame bindings (Silvretta Pure Kidz) it is night and day. I wouldn't mind a pair myself!

The one concern I had was the walk mechanism because there seems to be an obsession with "external" walk levers out there. But they work perfectly fine, and the kids have no trouble activiting/deactivating them.

SIZE: They run small, for sure. My kids are in 23.5 and 24.5 downhill ski boots, and they both found sizing up to 24.5 and 25.5 was preferred for these boots. That makes that a little big, but certainly not a full size too big. Considering they are still growing, that's fine with me. Unless you know your kids' feet won't grow any more, you can definitely size up.

Hmmmm, next year my kid will fit into these....A lot of money to only grow out of the boots, but totally worth it to introduce your kid into ski touring.

Question from Chris Bunting
 
I am curious what the smallest sized Movement youth AT boot (22.5) translates to in US size. Thanks

Answer from Teddy Young
 
Hey Chris, 22.5 mondo size equates roughly to 4.5 US men's shoe size.
