I think you misunderstood what he was saying. Fulltilts as a brand have become synonymous with park skiing these days, and the Drop Kicks have the same mold as the Seth boot anyways. Only difference you bought was footboard, toungue, and buckles. So technically you do have a park boot if you want to call it that. The only reason you're listing it as "freeride" would be the tongue stiffness.
I'm not saying this to be a jerk, but just so you have knowledge about the products and don't buy into all the marketing hype. It's a good boot, but just know the differences in your boot.
