Grady just sent us some pictures of him wearing his Seth Morrison Pro Model boots that he won in our TGR Show Us Your Boots contest. Ever since Grady got his new Full Tilt Boots, he has been drinking PBR and Rockin’ In The Free Wold. We hope everyone has a safe weekend and enjoys some late spring skiing!
We love getting letters from our customers and this one we can’t help but share!
Dear Full Tilt,
I am a 79 years old, my wife 77. We get a lot of comments on our boots, especially from young freestyler types who think Full Tilt’s are only for the young. NO WAY – we love the easy on and off, the adjustments, the comfort and warmth, the readily available replacement parts and everything else about Full Tilt Boots.
The photo above was taken at Empire Canyon Lodge at Deer Valley. You can see legs of lamb cooking in the fireplace behind us for the evening fireside dinner. I was wearing my High Five model and my wife has her new Drop Kick model boots. We each also have an older pair of Full Tilts, so we can alternate them. We ski about 65 (me) or 45 (her) days a season.
Jan and Judith
UPDATE: On Friday April 19th, Jan (pronounced “Yon,” in the Norwegian manner) skied his 80th day of the year at Alta, thus skiing his age! Congratulations and Happy Birthday Jan from everyone here at Full Tilt.
Full Tilt has turned the ski boot world upside down with its innovative three-piece design, which is growing insanely fast in the freeride and freestyle markets. They own the first three-piece design which has garnered a cult-like following for comfort, performance and warmth. The flex of these boots is crazy, the cable system makes getting in and out a breeze, and it’s so light you won’t believe you’re wearing a ski boot. The Booter is Full Tilt’s freestyle boot for skiers with wider feet or those who prefer a little more room in the toe. And the price of this one is just right.
When I was little I looked forward to when I would be old enough for my feet to stop growing for my first pair of nice fitting boots. My dad had a pair of Raichle flexons that he swore by so I tried them on one day and they fit so dagon well that I gave them a shot the next day we went out skiing. They fit so well that it wasnt until skiing on them for a few years that I looked for another boot with more cushion because most of the liner was packed down. I picked up some used nordics jah loves and they were more cushiony but man did my feet hurt after that first day. So Ive been back with the old trusties for a couple more years now. I ended up just putting another sole in there to help with impacts but now its a real trouble to get a comfortable and stiff fit. Those hard hits still hurt and one of the pivot caps is broken so my right boot doesnt clitch down properly. The 3 piece boot is my one and only. “Help me obi wan kenobi youre my only hope!”
