Skiers looking for the original and narrow Full Tilt lower boot shape (FTO shell) can find it here in retro black, purple, and green styling. The tongue here is a little on the softer side—testers wished it was a little stiffer for supporting a strong stance in variable terrain. But at $550 this is a great value that leaves a few bucks in the account for making an upgrade to a stiffer tongue for 50 bucks. The ability to mix and match tongues and purchase a myriad of replacement parts is by design here, and that includes the ability to upgrade the Intuition liner from the softer Performer style here to the stiffer Pro liner down the road.

Testers felt the Performer liner was soft and squishy—nice for its easy slide on and off, but perhaps lacking in fore-aft transmission. Though depending on the skier this may be just the ticket for a comfortable and warm all-day ride.

Snug fitting toebox, solid sole toe and heel, old-school buckles, rigid bootboard—classic, baby.
