        Comments about Full Tilt Boots Soul Sister:

        I absolutely love these boots. I spend my days coaching ski racing and freeskiing in the trees and they are perfect for both! My feet are always cold, but not in these boots! I can spend more time on the snow since my toes are warm! Definitely recommend sizing them correctly, if not on the small side. Enjoy!

        Comments about Full Tilt Boots Soul Sister:

        Size and flex of the shell are perfect, but the special womens cuff causes me pains in the back of my calves (which the men's Flexon Comp doesn't). The liners are very warm and comfortable, but too thick and soft for a really tight fit. The perfect boot for women who are not too ambitious but prefer comfort rather than top performance.

          Comments about Full Tilt Boots Soul Sister:

          I am an instructor at an Indoor ski resort and wanted a boot I could be comfotable in for over 9hrs a day (up to 12hrs) and the Full Tilt Soul Sister was perfect for this. I needed a boot that would support me all day long but also gives outstanding performance in the Terrain Park and still be able to occasionally go down the race lines without any hestitation. I used to have big problems with toe bang in the park and since getting these, I have not felt a thing. Best boot I have ever bought and will never use anything else again.

            I have spent thousands of $ on custom boots from Surefoot and other expert boot fitters, only to inevitably end up with bruised shins so sore I could not lean into my boots. These are just like the old Raichles, only lighter and (if possible) even more comfortable. I can ski all day, for days on end, with NO shin bang, NO discomfort at all! These are TRULY A joy and worth EVERY PENNY!

              I absolutely love these boots. I just got them a few weeks ago. My first run I was in love. It was such a difference from my old boots. I never complained once about my boots and I ski all day every weekend. My boyfriend was so happy because he is the one I always used to complain to.

                  I had foam in liners that were hard and uncomfortable. These fit like a dream. I have narrow feet so trying to find a boot that doesn't slop around can be difficult. I also had my plantar facia removed on one foot so it is like trying to secure a bag of bones. Just skied them a couple of days ago and they were great. My bad foot seemed to be secure. What a joy not to have my feet hurt. We will see how they do over time as they pack out.

                  Comments about Full Tilt Boots Soul Sister:

                  I came into these Soul Sister boots from a racing style fit boot and I love them. I've always had to blow out to my boots to make them fit my feet and the intuition liners heat molding was so much better and easier! These boots are actually comfortable and I have no problem wearing them all day. It's also nice that you can choose to have a softer or harder flex tongue that you can switch out.
