Salomon Talapus Snowboard Boots - Junior: Kids need boots too, and from what I understand they need little boots. Salomon makes the Talapus at a 2 flex rating, so there is plenty of give for the little ripper who steps into this boot. The one pull, and auto locking SPL4 lacing system was selected for the Talapus, so the kids can put their own boots on, without bothering Mom and Dad. When it comes to the perfect kids Snowboard Boot, a clean looking, long lasting, easy to lace Boot like the Salomon Talapus, is just what the Shred Doctor ordered. Doc always knows best.
