A lot of youth boots say they’re a flagship, top-tier boot that’s been sized down, but the Gaerne Youth SG-J Boots are unique because they’re one of the few options that actually live up to the claim. Just like Gaerne’s premium adult boots, the SG-J is a full height, 4 buckle layout that sports the classic stitched soles that Gaerne has nearly perfected.
The hard TPU impact materials and leather panels are both premium quality and held together with Gaerne’s typical recessed double stitching. And while the materials and construction make the SG-J very protective and fairly rigid, riders report that the boot is very comfortable with almost zero break-in time and a sneaker like feel. With all that in an affordable price, it’s not surprising the Gaerne SG-J is one of the best boots for kids of any age.
