There's a common misconception that light means wimpy, but the Full Tilt Men's First Chair 8 Ski Boot is here to prove otherwise. Replacing the Konflict in the Full Tilt lineup, the First Chair 8 is built on the FTS Soul Chassis, giving the boot a narrow 99mm last, stiff flex, and the same smooth, forward flex of a pair of Full Tilts. The First Chair 8 is geared towards the hard charger that expects a snug, responsive fit whether they're skiing pillow lines, crushing tight chutes, or stomping tricks in the park.You'll find all the forward thinking technologies that have made Full Tilt the go to among so many skiers, but with a few changes to make the boots that much better. The First Chair maintains the same narrow last, but with a slightly roomier toe box for just a bit more comfort than the old Konflict. The boots maintain Full Tilt's customizable flex, but they come standard with a 8 tongue, making them a stiff, hard charging boot right out of the box. The non slip rubber sole is a new addition to the Full Tilt line, while the addition of aluminum buckles allow minor adjustments to be made to the fit of the boot. You'll find the same shock absorbing boot board that saves your feet during big landings, and the same ribbed tongue that won't bottom out on you when you're skiing hard or dropping stacked pillow lines. Like all Full Tilt boots, the First Chair 8 is light and checks in a full two pounds lighter than similarly sized alpine boots.
