Full Tilt Boots For Wide Feet.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Update.  I just got back from a local ski shop, they measured my feet, I need a 28.0 boot, and my foot width is 99-100mm.  They said I have average feet.  I tried on the Atomic Hawx 90 and they seemed to fit my feet best, they said I could get away with a little less width.  (They are 100mm)  How do these boots compare to full tilt boots?

Not if you have a high instep- which is hard to fit in Full Tilts anyway.  When blowing out a Krypton/Full Tilt/Riachle, the width comes at the expense of instep height.

Is it worth the hassle?

     No.  Likely, 106 is too much for a 98 mm shell

forget the pretty decent deal stuff and go spend your money with a fitter who can help you selecet the correct shell for your feet

Full Tilt has boots that work well for wide feet.  They are available in your local shop under the disguised indentity of Head, Tecnica, Nordica, etc.

 If you like the three piece shell design, Dalbello has a new model this year with a three piece shell and a wider last than their Krypton series.  Can't remember the model name off the top of my head but have them in stock.  Bad boot fitter, bad...

 The Dalbello  model is called "Axiom" .

1)   is your foot a size 26?  that is the size that a width measurement is done from.   106mm is VERY wide for a 26, average for a bigger foot.

2)  FT vs krypton info

Very correct. I can't even begin to count the amount of times I get a person in for a fit and they insist they have wide feet....before I even measure them, Then once I measure it they turn out to have average or even narrow feet. The average person really has no clue about their own feet.

Gahan,

Don't go by the measured length of your foot---the only way you could find out if a boot will fit after break in is to shell fit each size till you find the one with the right amount of space behind your heel.
Read the WIKI about how a boot should fit!  Find a shop that specializes in bootfitting and take their advice.  It will be worth it to travel to find such a shop and even pay more than the local retailer wants for the same boot.
