Andreas Bruchwrote a review of K2 Vandal Snowboard Boot - Boys' on January 12, 2009
My nine-year-old is riding these for the first time this season - they're exceptionally solid, very no-frills boots. Sizing runs true - if your little guy wears a 1.5, buy the size 2. The boa system is extremely easy for youngsters to use, and it was VERY nice to not have to deal with lacing boots each morning. Subtle graphics let the world know he's ready to throw it down.
Only knock is that there was ZERO documentation in the box with the boots - how/where the sizing shims are is therefore a bit of a mystery. I'm sure it's easy to figure out, but minimal documentation would be a nice gesture on a $100 kid's boot.
