BenschultzzTotally agree with the replies posted above. However, if I were to make a recommendation I would say your should give the Daleboot VFF a try. Although it is not marketed as a park specific boot it has a soft flex but incredibly feels super responsive at the same time. They also have a 3-piece design so getting the boots on and off is just as easy as full tilts. I know they are not a very well known brand however, they have been supporters of Level 1 films in the past and are a current sponsor of Wiley Miller. I want to say that at one point early in his ski career LJ Strenio was sponsored by them but don't quote me on that cause I might be wrong ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . All in all though, it's a great boot and the boot fitters that work for Daleboot always seem to make sure that their customers get the best boot they've ever had.
P.S. I know it sounds like I'm making a sales pitch, but let me clarify... I am not affiliated with Daleboot in any way. I simply own a pair of them and think they are the best boots I have ever had. Used to have a pair of Full Tilts and thought they were great but for a good boot that is not a Full Tilt, I highly recommend looking into Daleboots.
cobra_commanderOnce upon a time park and pipe skiers all competed in consumer or wc race boots because they actually learned to ski growing up and could use a boot which effectively transmitted energy to their ski edges....
Oh how the times have changed. I’d love to blame it on the bunch but it’s been a trend for 12-13 years at this point.
clindblomskieror maybe boot technology has changed over the past 20 years and people can now have boot flex preferences
