SweatyYetiPeople will tell you to go to a bootfitter, frankly because that is the best option.
However, to give you an idea, Descendants are wider, while the Classics have a narrower footprint. Descendants have varying degrees of stiffness per model, while the Classics have the one flex (6/10 I believe), yet each boot can change its stiffness by replacing tongues. Generally, park skiers have a softer flex for more forgiving landings.
Regardless, just get a boot that fits and feels right. Don't buy online. Support your local business and get what feels best.
Emma_WatsonWhy Full Tilt?
Have you measured your other options?
Full Tilt makes a solid boot; however, it is about finding a boot that fits you. I've been on full tilt for about six years now, and realized that they are not the most durable (but the most flashy and hyped) and they do not fit my foot the best. I made the mistake of going out and buying the flashiest FT boot when I got into skiing, although they didn't fit me.
ben.bodetti am having a really hard time deciding wether to get the ft classics or the descendants for this years season. i am a beginner but i can do dubs on trampoline and i am hoping to take some stuff to snow this year, and i wanna make sure i have good boots. anybody have any idea?
