I bought these boots at the beginning of last year and was a little skeptical, but figured I would give them a try since I had been hearing good things about them. Well, skeptic no more. These are the best boots I've ever owned. Period. I've always skied very stiff Tecnica race boots. Translate: uncomfortable, sometimes painful boots. I just thought you had to sacrifice comfort for response and aggressiveness. Until I met Soul Sister. They are so comfortable, I almost feel guilty wearing such a foot loving boot! I did switch out the 6 tongue for an 8 tongue, the active boot board for the rigid boot board (active did not work well with my footbeds) and power strap and wow, what an awesome boot!!! All the response, stiffness and agility I want and it feels like I'm wearing slippers. Serious, I'm not joking. No more trips to the tuning shop to try and get my boots to fit, these babies were ready to go! So weather you want to rip some groomers, pop over the tops of moguls, hide in the trees all day, find your favorite powder stash or huck a few small cliffs these boots will not let you down. And your feet, ankles and calves will be loving it too! Check out the Full Tilt website for all the replacement parts you may want or need. Thats another bonus, replaceable Intuition Liners. So if you wear out your liner you don't need to cough up serious dough for a new boot, just buy a new liner! Love these boots!!!
