The Booter gets a 9.5 for being affordable and awesome. Fitting in under the Wallisch/pro model range, but still providing top of the line performance is an awesome spot for the Booter. If you're a park skier or an all mountain shredder with a budget and sore feet, look no further.
The Booter stomps landings and keeps your shins from dying even after a long day of jumping and landing back seat. My feet have never been cold either, which is a first for any pair of ski boots I've owned.
Red/Blue colours complement my setup nicely, so I have no complaints on styling! The translucent shells are a sweet touch, adding an interesting look to the toes as the Intuition liner shows through. Using buckles instead of cords, straps or ratchets, the Booter is a bit of a return to what we've come to consider as standard. They don't slip or strip, and they're solid.
The Booter really shines in the value department. Retailing at $400, the Booter is much cheaper than other boots of the same quality. Original three-piece design and awesome fit for an affordable price, and it comes with Intuition liners, typically a feature of much pricier options.
The 102mm width makes the Booter one of Full Tilts wider options. Most offerings are closer to the 99mm range, so if you've got a fatter foot or like a bit of room, the Booter is perfect. My feet are an 11 shoe size, and I got the 29 shell size. Some would say this might be bit big, but after years of boots being too small I decided to go big. I have not been disappointed thus far; I crank the buckles and my feet stay warm, but never wash around inside. It took a bit of getting used to, moving from a very cramped 28.0 Dalbello Krypton, but I'm absolutely sold on the fit of the Booter.
The Booter is fairly soft, forgiving boot that allows you to ski hard but gives your ankles a breather. It remains stiff enough to handle big park jumps and back seat landings; the addition of a booster strap depending on the conditions might be necessary for some heavier skiers, but I've found the Booter to be awesome flex-wise skiing park, pow, and even on the odd tour.
No complaints! The buckles are dependable, shell is strong, and Intuition liners don't pack out as much as other boots' liners.
