Full Tilts for fat feet?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
How do the Full Tilts fit?

I've got a real wide foot, but like the idea of a softer, more natural flexing boot. Should I give up all hope?

Probably.....

You should go find one, pull the liner out and put your foot in the empty shell. If the widest part of your foot barely touches the shell, it can probably be fitted with some work. If you are splatted against the shell pretty hard, it's probably not worth the effort.

My arch totally collapses. I used to think I got wide feet until a good boot fitter fitted me with an off the self insole with arch support. Best thing I did for my feet for about $25.

Now, I wear normal width shoes and use these insoles in every pair of shoes I have. I also can last much longer on my feet without any fatigue or pain.

Not saying that is the case for you, but it's certainly worth looking into.

You're in SLC- Call Deep Powder House at Alta, they should be setting up to open soon. They fit Reichles for years and now carry Full Tilt. I've seen them work wonders widening shells, but then again, it's a very narrow shell to start with. Good luck.

First find the boots that gives you the best fit off the shelf, then pick the boot of that group that is closest to what you want in performance, then have the bootfitter work his magic. The closer the boot originally fits to your foot, the best results you'll likely have unless you find a very talented boot fitter.

Some fitting info:

Full Tilt use the Intuiton thermofit liner, if you can get your foot in the as SierraJim describes, the boot will fit.
