Kids Boots - Wanted

I'm looking for bindings to go on a 63" Radar for my 9 year old. He is currently a size two. Suggestions? Anyone have something they want to sell? Thanks!

    I picked up closeout Radar boots for my kids, both were 9 at the time of purchase. One got SML Vector the other SML Prime. The small will carry them for a number of years - likely wear out before needing the STD size. I'd look for some Non Current closeout deals online.

    Wanted to add that my youngest, the one @ 9 now is a pretty small build. The Primes with the low cuff height were the best for him. My oldest, now 11 - is a bigger build and the Vectors were fine for him.
    Both kids are on 63" Radar TRA's

    The ski currently has a Radar Prime boot on it that is too big. It says US 5/8, not sure is a SML or STD?

    5-8 is a Small boot. Only boots smaller I ever had for the kids were the kids combos/trainers. Not sure you'll find anything decent that is smaller then what you have.

    Wiley’s XXS is listed at sz 4-5.
    They could probably build you something even smaller/more snug. I would think keeping the foot in good contact to top of ski is more important than the length.

    @scotchipman go with Wiley rubber bindings. As the child get older and out grows them send them back and they will rebuild the old hardware with new rubber. This saved me thousands of dollars over the years. My sons slalom plates had xxs, xs , s, m, all stamped into the plates.
