Descended from legends.
Full Tilt's three-piece boot design is damn near legendary, and for good reason. No other boot provides a heel hold that's this solid or a flex that's this customizable, which has made Full Tilt one of the go-tos for park riders and freestyle shredders year after year. You don't have to be super hardcore to enjoy Full Tilts—with intermediate-friendly boots like the Men's Descendant 4 Ski Boot, you can reap all the benefits of flex and lean adjustments, three-piece construction, and three-buckle design without needing to ski like Seth Morrison.
The Descendant 4 has a pretty wide 102mm last but medium calf volume, so it's perfect for skiers with a reasonably beefy foot that's stuck to a more normal-sized leg. Full Tilt ships the boot with a tongue that's rated 4/10, so the flex of the boot is perfect for casual cruising, park riding, and progression, but you can pick up stiffer tongues if you're looking for a little more power. The heat-moldable Focused Intuition liner wraps around your leg for full comfort and control, and the adjustable aluminum buckles provide a highly tuneable fit. The Descendant also employs Fill Tilt's legendary three-buckle design, which pulls your heel into the pocket to prevent slipping and increase control. It also sports replaceable heel and toe lugs, so you don't have to worry about scuffing your boots down to nothing after seasons of parking lot walks, stair climbs, and rock scrambles.

The Foot Glove
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Alright so I searched for a solid boot for a while. I have a wide foot (102-104mm last) so I was very picky. Problem I encountered was a lot of boots that were wide enough in the toe box were too much room in the heel....Until the Descendant. They have a section through the heel that features an ankle lock. The liner hugs your heel comfortably while still allowing your foot to lie flat in the boot. They are incredible. The are a soft flex (4) but you can order seperate tongues at different flexes so I ordered an 8 as well for deeper days. They perform incredible on the freestyle aspect, from jumps to rails they are crusher. In the powder they are great. Very Responsive, a little soft but like I mentioned use the stiffer tongues for those days. I am a 10.5., and ordered a 28.5 boot. My toe is right there at the end but not quite touching. I heat molded the liners myself! just look up heat mold your own liners on youtube. It takes 30 minutes and is easy to do in one Netflix episode.
Very happy, love the look and have gotten multiple compliments!
