Wallish's weapon of choice.
Tom Wallisch could probably win comps skiing in high-tops, but give him a choice and he'll opt for the Full Tilt Tom Wallisch Pro Model Men's Ski Boot 11 times out of 10. It isn't that sneakers aren't awesome, but they generally don't provide the same support that the three-piece medium-flex Full Tilt Soul shell does, nor do they offer a snug 99mm last with a wide, comfortable toe box. The tongue of the Wallisch Pro pivots forward from the bottom for easy on and off, while its ribbed pattern teams up with the free-flexing rear cuff to provide a smooth, reliable flex with no sudden stops or dead spots. Instead of traditional ladder buckles, Full Tilt locked the whole package down with widetrack aluminum buckles, which offer one-handed microadjustment and use flexible cables instead of stiff wickets, giving you a snug fit that doesn't interfere with the boot's flex or cause shin bang.
Oftentimes, a boot's only as good as the liner you put inside of it. Lucky for you, Full Tilt hooked the Wallisch Pro up with an Intuition Pro heat-moldable liner, which has Powerwrap foam to create better contact with the shell, increasing performance and responsiveness. There's also a J-Bar foam insert at the ankle bone, designed to seriously increase heel hold so you never feel your heel sliding up and out. The Wallisch is also the only boot in Full Tilt's freeride line to feature a full rubber sole for grip, but has the same shock absorber impact-reducing bootboard as plenty of the other freeride and freestyle models.

Gotta love full Tilts
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
No matter what kind of skiing you do Full tilt has a boot for you. The options of change in the tongue stiffness make their boots very customizable to your skiing, one option that I have found extremely appealing. I remember before I started wearing full tilt, trying to squeeze my foot into hard plastic in the mornings and almost breaking my foot with how difficult it was, these boots are easy to get on, off, and the most comfortable Ive ever worn.
The boots are extremely light in comparison to other boots making them very practical for jumping and rails, and to top it off they have changed their buckles so no more getting them jammed in the powder.
I love the boots and honestly give them credit to saving my knee, but thats a whole other story.
