First-timers who've never been in a ski boot before, old-timers returning to the sport with arthritis and plantar flexion problems, and pretty much anyone looking to take up skiing and not have to think twice about their feet hurting should take a close look at the Full Tilt Descendant 4 Ski Boots. Wide but not obscenely so, cushy but with enough backbone to control your skis, and super easy to put on and take off even when they're cold, the Descendent 4 is going to make a whole lot of friends.
Last: 102 mm – Relaxed last for wider and higher volume feet and all-day comfort.
Evolution Shell – The Full Tilt Evolution Shell adds much needed depth to the Full Tilt line. Designed for those with a wider foot, the Evolution shell incorporates a higher volume fit and a 102mm last.
Moldable – Utilizing the QuickFit™ System, all Full Tilt boots – shells included – can be molded to the exact needs of your foot. Not all feet are the same; Full Tilt prides itself on creating boots that allow a personalized, 1-to-1 fit experience.
Easy On/Off – The front of the shell opens a full 90º to slide your foot in and out with ease in all temperatures. Like putting on slippers!
Flex: 4 – Full Tilt's softest tongue, for new, lighter and less aggressive skiers.
Ribbed Tongue – 100% ribbed tongue enables smoother, more natural linear flex from your shin to your toe. The tongue bends like a flexible straw, never bottoming out while providing smooth rebound. No more shin bang!
Adjustable Flex – The boot’s flex is rated on a simple scale of 4-12 (12=stiffest). Change a boot’s flex by simply switching the tongue.
Classic Liner – The Classic Liner features a multi-layered construction in a traditional tongue design for targeted comfort and performance in a familiar way.
Foam (Listed From Foot to Shell) – 5mm Open Cell: Ensures warmth and comfort straight out of the box. / 4mm Intuition™ Foam: Medium density and hardness for a solid balance of comfort and performance. / 4mm Standard HD: High density and firm for a responsive and efficient transfer of energy.
J-Bars – An additional j-shaped piece of foam is inserted internally on both sides of the ankle area to dramatically increase ankle hold down, to keep your feet perfectly in place for precise control.
Shell and Cuff – Thermo Plastic Urethane
Tongue – Grilamid
Infinite Pivot – Unlike traditional designs, the rear cuff never bottoms out. It pivots infinitely forward with your calf for less shell distortion, no shin pain and more control.
Ladder Buckles – The ladder buckle features an intuitive, easy to remember, macro-size adjustment, plus a micro-twist for fine adjustment with a light, easy-to-handle aluminum lever.
45° Heel Lock – Keep heels where they belong. Placing the middle buckle at an optimal 45 degree angle creates a solid lock for the heel to stay put when pressuring the tips and tails of the skis.
40mm Power Strap
Replaceable ISO 5355 Dual Material Alpine Soles
Mid-Grip – Whether you are climbing grated stairs or scrambling on top of a mountain, a dual material or single material mid-grip gives you the confidence to stay on your feet.
Customizable – All parts are sold separately for unlimited personalization and repair using a standard Phillips head screwdriver.
