Most Versatile Boot
Full Tilt Classic Pro

Trends in the ski industry are fickle. Innovations come and go, and companies are constantly digging through the ski gear of yesteryear looking for ways to improve on classic designs. While over the last 40 years, the sport of skiing has progressed to beyond what was once imagined as possible, one boot remains largely the same. Like a shark unchanged by time, the Full Tilt Classic still prowls resorts confident in the proven efficiency of its design. 

Aside from the Nordica HF, it doesn’t get any more old-school than this, especially within the realm of performance boots. The Full Title Classic isn’t the most aggressive boot on the market, nor is it the most comfortable. It shines in its utility and its practicality, whether you’re a beginner looking for a boot that will grow with your skills, or an experienced skier whose seen “innovation” come and go with the decades, and would rather bet on something that you know works.

The Classic Pro works for a large number of skiers right out of the box, they have a reputation in the industry for stock liners that can compete with popular aftermarket models.  Although it will adapt to the contours of your foot over time, both the shell and liner can be heat molded for a more precise fit. 

There’s some more room in the toe box than you’d expect from other performance alpine boots, but this is compensated for by the heel lock buckle that fastens the lower section of the shell, and foam reinforcement around the ankles. 

The replaceable tongue is also noteworthy. The Classic Pro comes with a Flex 8 tongue which is the rough equivalent of a 100 flex boot, but you can order stiffer or softer tongues from their website according to your specific needs. The boot doesn’t come with many amenities, but all of the pieces on the are interchangeable and replaceable with a phillips head screwdriver. 

Full Tilt makes a number of specialty boots for touring and park, but the Classic made our list because of its universal appeal. The reputation it’s garnered over 4 decades of hard riding speaks volumes, and the price compared to this year’s latest and greatest isn’t anything to balk at, either.
