Junior/Youth Racing Shoes
Purpose built racing shoes will give your young racer better pedal feel than a pair of sneakers. In addition, the youth race shoes from K1 Race Gear, Simpson, Zamp, RaceQuip and Crow are fire retardant and SFI 3.3/5 rated for added protection. The Alpinestars shoes are not fire retardant, designed for kart racing, although legal for most forms of Quarter Midget, Junior Dragster and other Youth Motorsports. We have racing shoes starting at Kids size 6. Typically you would order the same size as they wear in sneakers unless they have a wide foot, then we recommend sizing up.
Please note: the thinner soles on race shoes are less durable than regular athletic shoes. To have your racing shoes last longer, we recommend they only be worn in the car to drive.
