[Full Tilts] Does the pressure of the liner on the shin goes away after the molding?
I'm currently looking to buy new boots and I recently tried on some Full Tilts for the first time.
I felt overall pretty good in them, except that when fully buckled, I felt a painful pressure on my shin, right between the two bones, caused by the inside edge of the intuition liner. I also felt an overall pressure around my shin. I tried to untighten the buckles a bit, but I would then feel a bit loose in the boot.
So my question is: does that pressure around the shin and that pain caused by the edge of the liner goes away once the liner has been molded? Or is it normal with Full Tilt boots? Or are Full Tilts just not for me?
P.S. I asked the guys at the shop but they were giving me divergent answers.
Thank you in advance!
Don't buy them, you'll regret it. Foam molding, especially a FT, is (likely) not going to transform a boot that doesn't fit into one that does.
buy a boot that fits don't get sucked into buying a boot because of the name, if they are uncomfortable in the shop it will only be worse on the hill.
Sounds like full tilts are not for you.
Did you go into the shop asking for full tilts, or asking to fitted to a pair of boots? Most of the time, it is better to be fitted to the boots that fit, not the ones that look nice.
While 'freestyle boots' have nice features such as rubberised inserts, in reality as long as a boot fits and is the correct stiffness for you, it will be perfectly fine for whatever kind of skiing you want to do.
