bought these on my sons suggestion

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

at first ordered size too small...backcountry did great job w/ return and shipping next larger size in two days...size 11 shoe size.. boot size 29.5...extremely flat feet that dont take well to inserts...i was replacing a 23 year old pair of technicas that i had nursed along for the past five years........i took the full tilts. right out of box....and put them on w/o a hitch...they felt like pillows on my feet compared to my tired old boots....easy to buckle up...on largest setting for now...will have to tighten up as memory foam molds to my feet...skiing wise...they had a good amount of flex which i am not used to...i am 6'0 230 lbs....might need to go to a stiffer tongue as i get more comfortable and ski more aggressively w/ my new equipment [blizzard brahma skis]...so far after two outings...i think i will be long term satisfied w/ my purchase

High hopes dashed

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I tried to buy the FT Drop Kick last week at Butternut in CT and while the staff were super nice and patient, the boots were not so good. I had four problems, three of which were the boots. 1) I could not adjust the buckles while on the slops because you have to press a small lever and pull up on the buckle at the same time to loosen the fit. The staffer in the store struggled to do it even with warm hands and the boots not on his feet. He was like: "wow, this is surprisingly hard."
2) the number 6 flex tongue provided nearly zero flex for me, and the shop lacked any more flexible tongues to try.
3) when the staff experimented with removing the tongue, they had to break out some tools to get the job done and struggled mightily. They were like: "why is this designed this way...super difficult to change tongues." This is not that big a deal because you don't need to change tongues often, but when you look at the tongue attachment design it seems cheep and not well thought out.... you sort have to bend unbendable metal clasp to install the tongue... makes little sense. 4) the boots I tried were too small, and visibly deformed my toes, so I got to return them. This was after the heat molding. This fit problem is not FT's fault, it was my own fault for getting talked into...."it'll feel better after a few days and your heel seems to have the right amount of room, so we can't recommend larger." On the plus side, the boots were light weight and hurt my shins way less than the rental boots the next day. I'm an intermediate skiier who likes to carve... not into freestyle or bumps etc. Overall, I was really glad to return the boots after feeling the design had some serious flaws and the construction seemed cheap. The boost are a great idea... light, adaptable, more flex = more comfort... but for me it turned out to be almost all marketing spin except for the light weight part. I'm now looking to buy something less "classic."
I wear 10 to (usually) 10.5 shoes and they put me in 26.5s. Not good.

I can't comment on the fit issue but a few reactions. I've been skiing this boot for more than 25 years. My first pair of Raichle Flexons actually looked exactly the same as this year's Full Tilt Classic. It's important to recognize that the boot's design is unique and the tongue, buckles and cables can seem pretty wonky at first. Don't be discouraged. You get the hang of it quickly. I ski with people in all kinds of boots and I get in and out of these boots faster than any of them. I can adjust them on the slopes in the cold and with gloves or mittens on. I've swapped tongues once and it takes some fiddling but this is not something you do often. Just my 2 cents. The unusual design is the biggest barrier to entry for these boots and it's a shame. Potential customers and less knowledgeable ski shop employees get turned off but the learning curve is steep and short. You get the hang of these boots in no time and you have the best flexing, warmest, lightest, easiest to adjust and wear boots on the mountain. There's a reason the design hasn't changed since the 80s.

think you should give these another try....if they had used the simple size chart provided by full tilt for 10.5 shoe...it calls for size 28.5...the size you tried was two sizes too small...also the classic has a more flexible tongue than drop kick....had you tried the classics in a proper size...your review probably would have been different

do these boots work well with a high instep

Best Answer Responded on

This boot may be a little tight on your instep if you have a high instep, they are great boots , but due to the shape of the three piece design they aren't the best for people with high insteps.

Responded on

I have a high instep and had to return the boots due to being talked into buying ones that were too small. The staff said... you have very high instep, let's try foot bed inserts. I said, the boots are so small they are visibly deforming my toes, I'm giving up on these. They said a larger size would be a final sale because larger seemed too big... so the boots just don't fit me, I guess.

Gotta get this boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used this boot for the entire 2013-2014 ski season. I rode park 90% of the time. I have an 11 shoe size and got a 27.5. It was really comfy, and never had any legitimate issues. Went skiing about 25 times and besides cosmetic scratches the boot looks and feels brand new. However, when the temperature gets below 20, be prepared to have some cold toes. For under $300, this boot is a steal; don't wait for next year's model and pay an extra $150. Get this boot now!
