Thor Youth Blitz Boots
When it comes to junior motocross boots, there is undoubtedly a much smaller range to choose from than those available in adults boot sizes.

Deciding on what boot to buy for your child is not easy, especially when you know that at any point in time they could shoot through 2-3 boot sizes in less than a year, sometimes more!

Just on 14 months ago we got our hands on a set of Thor Blitz Junior motocross boots for my then five and a half-year-old son.

In terms of looks, they are certainly a cool looking boot (Jayden's words) and from my point looked to be a well made boot, with good protection, including metal toe cap, which is not something you still see on a lot of boots these days.
Clean fresh and ready for the first ride in his first set of Thor Blitz Boots back on the first of March 2017
The size 1 boot at the time was slightly to big, and he needed to run a couple of pairs of socks to fill out the boot a bit, but with with not to much growth in the foot we managed to get a full 12 months and around 70-80 hours of riding out of the one pair of boots.

Apart from being very dirty and a little scuffed up in a few places due to wear and tear, they are for all intense and purposes still in as good condition now as the day we received them.

The three strap buckle system worked very well, with the top two buckles coming attached to a single adjustable straps, while the bottom buckle connects to a dual strap which effectlivley gave the same closing around the bottom section of the ankle and foot that a four strap boot system would offer.

The buckle and locking tab are both made of plastic, which was a bit of a concern to me at first, but over the course of the time, we have ran the Blitz boot has proven to be reliable, never once coming undone mid ride or breaking at any point in time. If anything the only thing we could fault with the buckle system is that it can be a little hard to undo at the end of a day's riding.

In the case that you do lose a buckle or one does get snagged on something and breaks, you can buy additional strap kits for the boots.
12 months later a bigger bike, bigge riding gear and a bigger set of Thor Blitz boots, the original pair still in great condition, but enjoying the fresh colour and biggers size. Kids just grow up to fast sometimes!
The sole of the boot has certainly lasted the test of time and amazing for a kid that stands on his pegs the majority of the time, the sole visually looks like it has not done a great deal of work.

Overall the Blitz boot has proven to be a reliable long lasting junior motocross boot. After 15 months Jayden did finally outgrow the size one, and we have just moved him in to a set of fresh Size 2 boots, unfortunatly for myself, it looks as though it will not be long until we are jumping up a size or two with some decent growth in the past couple of months.

The Thor Blitz Kids MX boot comes in sizes 1-7 in five different colours.

At $229.95 (White or Black) or $239.95 for the Orange / Black - Green / Black or Red / Black, the Thor Blitz Kids MX Boot offers good value for money for a long-lasting well-constructed dirt bike boot.
Avaliable in five colours and in kids sizes 1-7, there are plenty of choices of the Thor Blitz boots to suit your needs.
