Our footrests are a perfect addition for our Lil’Buddy, this way you can take a kid with you sittin in front of you and keep its feet on the footrests. If not needed just simply flip them together. This way they don't stick out and are safe out of the way if you are taking a ride by yourself. Hard and resistible steel makes sure these hold long and support the weight. The footrests are anodized black to avoid any oxidation process.
