Boot fitter question
so hypothetically i wanted full tilts, but had a foot that was no where near the right shape for the boot. Would a good bootfitter be able to make the fulltilt as comfortable and perform as well as as another boot that required minimal adjustments? Just curious as to how much a bootfitter could modify boots.
Sagging pants, wide stance, fat skis, powder in trees, corked three's with steeze.
There is only so much work you can do to a boot, you are better off getting a boot requiring minimal adjustment and then refining things from there, rather than literally remoulding/shaping an ill-fitting boot. The plastics on FT's are quite thin so yes, you are limited to how wide you can punch
what is your foot shape
I agree with Silence- you are always better off starting with a boot that fits well and adjusting from there. However, I've fit a lot of pros that ride for Full Tilt and not all of them have the ideal Full Tilt foot shape, so sometimes, you've just got to make it work. And I've had good success stretching the boots to a pretty drastic degree. With that said, I would still recommend that you get whatever boot fits you best because, unlike a pro skier, you have options whereas they don't.
