A Full Tilt boot for the paddle-footed shredder.
We all know that guy that swears by his Full Tilts and doesn't shy away from singing their praises to everyone he meets on the chairlift. But for those of us who have a foot shaped better for swimming than skiing, the narrow 99mm last found on most boots is enough to make your bone spurs cringe and toes instinctively curl up on each other. If the cost of your toe nails has hardly seemed worth the price of the progressive forward flex, customizable stiffness, and boot-bang free performance a pair of Full Tilts offer, then step your wide footed self into the Full Tilt Men's Descendant 6 Ski Boot and let your toes roam free as you stomp big lines, jumps, and jib just about every feature you encounter.
The Descendant is a Full Tilt, so you'll find all the features that have allowed the company to achieve legend status over the years. The boot has that Full Tilt three-piece shell with a medium flex tongue attached. The shock absorbing foot board helps to absorb vibrations when you're skiing fast on variable snow and will cushion big impacts when you stomp landings on packed-out transitions. The ribbed tongue bends, so you'll never bottom the boot out, or suffer from shin-bang after a big landing. Three micro-adjustable buckles let you fasten the boots down as tight as you need to ski as aggressively as you want, while a large power strap keeps the boot responsive and snug. The liner is made with Intuition foam, so it can be heat-molded to better fit the shape of your foot, while an additional layer of high-density closed cell foam is placed along the outside of the cuff of the liner to drive energy more efficiently to the shell for even more performance. Whew, if that sounds like a lot, then that's probably because it is, but your boots are the most important component in your setup, so they probably shouldn't skimp on features.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've put around 100 days on these bad boys and love them! I like a bit more of a flexier boot and I have a wider foot and these are the perfect boot for me. Super fun to hit the park on these but they are stiff enough to ride the whole mountain. I'm a pretty aggressive skier and have never felt like these were too soft. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a bit wider boot!
great boot for the money
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My kid decided half way thru the season that he wanted to ski again after trying snowboarding so finding gear that was affordable was key. Got these for him and he says they are the best boots hes ever had.
