    Little Ripper has wide feet!

    My four-year-old outgrew his boots again, he is now in the 19.5-20.5 range. Does anyone know if any brand is known for wider boots in the youth size, he has a very wide forefoot. Thinking a double buckle setup might help. Can youth boots be punched? Thanks.

    1) thinner socks
    2) leave any toe buckles off (not just loose)
    3) kids plastic is cheaper and doesn't punch well, but can be done a bit.
    4) I think most brands/shapes are similar

    Thanks for the info. More or less what I suspected.

    check out Alpina, some of their Junior models use a "Volume Control Plate" which can be removed to accommodate a wider fore foot.
    Example: Alpina AJ3
