You're bound to have your fair share of busted bones and shattered egos, but at least you can count on the Full Tilt Drop Kick Men's Ski Boot to prevent your feet and shins from enduring any unnecessary pain while you're lapping the park. This is partly due to Full Tilt's famous three-piece shell construction, which uses a fully pivoting ribbed tongue and free-flexing rear cuff to provide a smooth and consistent flex. Not to mention, you can thank the wide toe box that lets your feet maintain circulation without feeling loose or sloppy. The Drop Kick comes with a tongue that's rated medium on Full Tilt's scale, but it's super easy to swap it out for a stiffer or softer tongue if you want to fine-tune your boot's flex. Don't be in too much of a hurry to swap tongues, though, because a good deal of the Drop Kick's stiffness is provided by the heat-moldable Intuition Performer liner, which uses three layers of foam to provide a performance fit that's still comfortable and cushy where you need it to be. Full Tilt's got the whole fit thing dialed, nylon ratchet buckles and foot-wrapping cables provide a precise fit without clamping down too hard and affecting the flex of the boot. The shock-absorbing footbed helps to cushion hard landings, while the rubber heel adds some more shock absorption and grip on rocky ridge walks and slick parking lots.
