      • Review:

        I am an advanced skier in Ontario, which means basically nothing to anyone in the west. I'm 5'8 130 lbs so I find it hard to justify a 130 for what I want.

        I ski everything and pow when I can. I am currently riding a 25.5, 96mm last at a 90 flex (one screw out).

        PROS:
        The boots are perfect when fitted properly (as most), they don't have the nicest design but that doesn't matter when your pants hang over them. They come with replaceable toes and heels- if you do a lot of walking off of snow it's great. There are two screws on the back which can be taken out to reduce the flex to an 80 I believe, really nice if you like a soft boot and playing around- it's why I got them over the 110's. The minimal style to them makes it easy to work on them over boots with leather, weird cut out patterns or 3 piece boots. If you suck people won't call you out for buying into the FT hype. Comes with a nice heel hold (in my mind) and does a good job transferring power due to the low volume liner. All metal buckles are great.

        NEUTRAL: The low volume liner isn't bad, it can be a little cold at times (but that is because I put my boots on at the car so in -20 my feet are cold going in) but I have definitely had worse. With that said I still use them and actually like them, they keep your feet at the same temp no warming up too much and no cooling down. The plastic is fairly strong, I've been doing 50-50's all last season and they aren't too beat up, just paint marks and a few scratches. The strap is just meh, works but obviously isn't the best or the worst.

        CONS: The toes leak, not a problem for ice days but a piece of tape on the front seam solves the problem completely (I have also had the tops of my boots punched out so the seams don't fit too well in the first place).

        TL;DR:
        Good urban/ playful boot that can put out performance, leaky toes, easy for fitters to work with. Customizable flex for those who aren't sure what they like or want a soft park boot.
