For those of you who think that Full Tilts are a God send.... wait until you see what the geniouses are coming up with for the 2010/2011 season. New for next season Full Tilt is introducing a whole new line of boots for you fat footed skiers out there. It's called the Influence line. With a more forgiving width and less suitable flex this boot is sure to be the next over-rated thing in the park. The best part about these boots is a size range from 24-31 is covered by a mere 5(instead of 7) shell sizes. This means that most shell sizes will be shimmed for your comfort. What a terrible idea, insted of making a shell that will fit better, they make a shell that fits and preforms worse. I understand that these boots do fit a certain shape and if your foot meets the criteria you probably love them. However, you cannot argue the fact that shimming a boot shell to fit any foot is the right answer. Thank you Full Tilt for worrying more about making your boots "fucking rad" than fit and performance.
The reason that Full Tilts' new Influence line is destined to go down in burning shambles is because their innovation is in the wrong palce. You can't buy old Raichle molds, come up with half assed ones of your own and rely on a fad to sustain a successful boot company.
It saddens me that graphics and NS threads can get people to buy anything... Bootfitters should blindfold the costomers
