Drop-kick, take names, and ride away unscathed.
This boot may come in black and blue, but you'll stay nice and bruise-free in the ultra-comfy, forgiving, yet power-wielding Full Tilt Drop Kick Men's Ski Boot.

Trying out the magic for the first time
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'd long heard the rave reviews of the old Raichle-style boot design, and decided to give it a try for the first time this season in the Full Tilt reincarnation, going with the Drop Kick since I am planning on using these boots primarily for park riding. My first day in the boots right out of the box ended early since the new-boot-break-in-pain was even worse than I expected, with the straps extremely tight around the (yet un-molded) liners even on the loosest micro-adjust settings. But the boot comes with moldable Intuition liners, and things are feeling much better after getting that work done at a local boot shop. So far since then playing around on early-season groomers and small park features the boots feel light and controllable, and I've got no complaints. We'll see how they hold up to more serious work as the season goes on.
Great as usual from Full Tilt, but soft
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been riding Full Tilt boots for the past few years, and have a bit of a love affair with them. While these are the same exact mold as seen with the Hot Dogger/Classic which I've been using, the tongue provided with these are extremely soft. I found that when trying to press my skis, or put pressure on the tips, I had way too much flex room. Ultimately, I ended up swapping out the tongues for a stiffer flex which I had lying around.
Overall, these are a great boot. Super light, prevent shin bang, everything expected of Full Tilt. However, for heavy shredding, I would recommend one of the stiffer models, such as the Konflict.
