      Comments about Full Tilt Boots Growth Spurt:

      My 6yo just wrapped her second season with this boot, and it's been a fantastic learning boot--very easy to get the foot into (though it's tricky to buckle), very supportive, ultra-light, and soft flexing. Started on the smallest size last year (con: the tongue doesn't fit snugly on this setting and was leaky the first season), moved to the middle setting this season (much drier!), and will be on the largest next season, I'm sure. The only downsides are that it is leaky when on the smallest setting (I think the tongue is made for the middle setting) and also if your kid skis a lot, the liner starts to fail before they grow out of the boot (after 2 seasons, ours is very packed out and frayed at the base of the tongue). Also, we started on the smallest size, so the liner had time to "grow" over the season and into the next, but it takes a while to stretch out so I wouldn't buy this boot if you are in the middle/high end of the size range. Finally, there is no insole in this boot and it is roomy. Adding a Superfeet green footbed did the trick for us. It took up some volume, added much-needed arch/heel support, and changed my daughter's skiing overnight. It also helped stretch the liner to the bigger size shell.
