    So I took the plunge and ordered the Lady Women's model. Mondo 25. I don't have the measurement right now, but I have wide feet. I've worn them twice now. Got the liner hot air molded, and did all the stuff from this forum for getting the boot more upright....

    Right now the boots fit great...as long as I leave the top buckle undone. I have changed the cable position so that is in its loosest setting, but that doesn't seem to help. I think that the cuff might just be too high. Buckling the top buckle somehow changes the position of my feet so much that the boot feels short and narrow. I do put on the power strap.

    The lower buckles fit so well that as long as I tighten them properly, I don't miss the top buckle at all. They keep the ankles very secure... no side to side movement at all. Boots feel like a dream this way. I don't do tricks, so I don't think that I need the extra support, anyways.

    Any comments on my setup? I'm still a noob, so I would welcome anything more experienced people would have to say.


    Oh, yeah... and I just ordered a pair of TWP 98s with Spruce bindings. Should be here soon. I'M SO EXCITED!

    If you had the liners hot air molded at a ski shop, I suggest going back to them and let them know your concern so they can correct it.

    Note that another consideration is safety, not just comfort. Your boot needs to support your lower leg, ankle and foot adequately to minimize the opportunity for injury. Therefore it would be best to get your boots dialed in as they were intended to be used.

    Not sure if you're still following this thread or interested.. but I know Summit Snowboard & Ski in Lake Elmo will mold Full Tilt liners for free. I talked to them today because my FT Lady's will be arriving today. I'm going to head over there tonight and get them molded. Here's their info if you're interested:

    Weird, cause that's where I went first. The guys helping me must not have known anything cause I asked them about it and they said I'd have to take them somewhere else and they had no suggestions. I know the one guy said he just started but the other guy was supposed to be the resident expert on Full Tilts.

    That is really strange. I talked to two people on the phone and they all made it sound like it was no big deal and they could do it quickly and easily. I guess I'll let you know after tonight. I hope I don't go all the way there for nothing.

    Wendell,

    Should your foot length read 28.5 versus 25.8? I assume it is a typo. Please confirm.

    BTW: I can hardly wait to see you and Jack in your new outfits that match your FT boots next year at Shredfest !

    Foot length is 25.8. I plan to wear my boot gloves to cover my new fruit boots.

    Your feet are 2.7 cm (~1.0 inch) shorter than your boots! Are you sure?

    I like the full tilts a lot. Even after the all the intense (for me) riding we did at shredfest, my feet felt great. As much as I admire and wish I could ride like Jack and Wendell, I'm glad I got mine when the all-black model was still available;-)

    Yes... I hardly touch the toes when I stand straight up. I tried Roberts 27.5 last year and couldn't fit them at all.
