Athletes Sound Off on Boot

Three of skiing’s best sound off about their favorite boots: Seth Morrison, Tom Wallisch & Zach Crist

Seth Morrison

“These boots allow me to ski the way I do with the lightness and full flex no other boot in the market has. Believe me, I have tried m`any others and they just don’t work for my foot or skiing style. At the end of the day I wish I never tried anything else, it was just a waste of time. Couldn’t be happier that these boots are back and everything on them is exactly the same as they ever were. The ease of set up and fit with the moldable liners saves time at the boot fitters. If Full Tilt ever stops making them, I’ll have to buy the molds and make my own boots!”

Tom Wallisch

“Well… These boots are officially the best boots I’ve ever ridden. If your looking for a pair of boots that you can easily wear as shoes, these are them. So comfortable you won’t even wanna take em off… ever! No more need to worry about shin bang or toe bang! They’re super light, easy to control, and got everything you need without any of the excess baggage. The boots have a relatively soft and flexible shell, and interchangeable tongues for varying stiffness. You can totally customize the boots, making them perform exactly how you want.”

Zach Crist

“My favorite part of the FT ski boot is really it’s light weight, it’s like having a pair of running shoes on as opposed to a pair of hiking boots. Especially now with skis getting wider and inherently heavier, to have a boot that’s ligher is a really nice compliment. These boots are comfortable, warm and easy to get in and out of.  I’ve been doing this long enough to know that you can’t let your feet get in the way of a good time.”

Vintage 3-Piece Boots Getting Replaced

 

January’s winner of ‘Show Us Your Boots!’ over at Tetongravity.com has some pretty sick original Raichles which, we have to be honest, are dying to display in the office. So maybe Nick would be down to trade for some brand new Full Tilts?! Check out his below!

I got so excited to see you’ve brought my beloved Flexon comp boot back. I own the Flexon Comp VIP model which has special graphics to commemorate the 1989 Vail World Championship. I used them for over 12 years till I became too self conscious of the dated color scheme. By then the Flexon was gone from the market so I switched brands. Always felt the Flexon was the best ever but vanity kept me off them. The Full Tilt will become my next boot. Please enter me in your contest. I can also supply you more photos of the Raichle Flexon 5 and Flexon Slalom which I purchased in the last years of existence, but didn’t like. Too heavy and klunky.

The Original Hot Doggers

December’s winner of ‘Show Us Your Boots!’ over at Tetongravity.com could possibly be one of the most creative to date! Did Mitch Jensen just design next year’s boot for us?! Check out his entry below:

The original Hot Dogger.

Ski Boot Features:
Original 3-Meat Design
Medium #6 Premium Beef Frank tongue for maximized flavor
Whole Wheat Bun Bootboard absorbs messes
Stadium Brat Buckles for lightweight on-the-go eating
Classic Yellow Mustard Cables

Although it looks like I’m ready for this ski season, a long day on the slopes sure makes me hungry…and I’d rather have a boot that I wasn’t tempted to eat!
