Custom-made specifically for pro skier Seth Morrison, the Full Tilt Seth Morrision Pro Model Ski Boot provides him with the tools to be one of the best big-mountain skiers in the world for over 20 years. Designed for aggressive, hard-charging skiers who prefer big lines and airs, the Seth offers a boot flex of 8 out of 10. This firm-flexed boot supplies power and responsive energy transfer, while at the same time maintaining a smooth, natural ankle motion that eliminates shinbang. Plus, if you want to change your flex you can easily swap out the tongue for a different Full Tilt tongue (sold separately).
Full Tilt is known for its lightweight, minimalistic three-piece Original shell design; the Seth features a redesigned version of the Original called the FTS shell that incorporates a new modern toe box shape and replaceable rubber soles for non-slip walking. In addition, this smartly-designed shell with 99mm width eliminates the need for thick, heavy overlapping plastic or bolts, which helps cut down on weight. Oh, and thanks to its Infinite Pivot design, the rear cuff pivots forward with your calf without restriction for less shell distortion, no shin pain, and more control.
As far as comfort goes, you're going to love the Seth's Intuition Pro Liner. This heat-moldable liner consists of an extra 4mm of open-cell foam for a warm, comfy feel that molds to your foot shape to eliminate pressure points, while its 7mm of high-density EVA closed-cell foam molds to your foot shape and transfers energy. Thanks to the Pro's Powerwrap design, you have an additional layer of ergonomically shaped high-density Intuition closed cell foam that wraps around the outside of the liner to provide added energy transfer and horsepower to the shell. This unique liner also has J-Bar technology, a J-shaped piece of foam that's added to both sides of the ankle areas to dramatically increase ankle hold to keep your foot in place for precise control. In addition, a thinner foam is used in the front of liner to increase space without sacrificing control in the rest of the liner for those with a wider foot or who prefer a little more toe room.
Equipped with an array of adjustment features, the Seth features cables that wrap around the boot like a shoelace for even pressure and increased comfort while eliminating dead spots. Its new Widetrack Buckle system is engineered to increase precision and durability while maintaining on-the-fly, single-handed micro adjustments. Aluminum levers also feature a minimalistic, lightweight design. The front of the Seth's shell opens a full 90 degrees so you can slide your foot in and out with ease in all temperatures.
Whether you're stomping forty-footers, railing turns through cruddy snow, or maneuvering down steep hardpack terrain, count on the Seth's Active BootBoard (soft rubber layer in the sole of the shell) to absorb vibrations, impact, and shock for a smooth ride. For improved versatility, Full Tilt also gave the Seth replaceable rubber soles on the entire toe and heel to dramatically increase grip when you walk or hike. Overall, this sweet hard-charging boot provides both the performance and comfort you deserve when you're sending big lines, stomping massive airs, or taking part in an impromptu end-of-the-season Chinese Downhill race.

Besides the new look, new aluminum buckles and power strap. Wider track buckles which are lighter than past metal buckles as well as plastic buckles. Power Strap has a buckle similar to a rafting strap buckle so you can crank it down and it holds its place unlike velcro after it wears which was on the previous boots. Replacement rubber soles are available as well as stiffer tongues. I ride the largest tongues made. One thing about the buckles on these boot is you can't hammer on them like you would with a full buckle and bail system. The small springs which are larger on the new buckles are still small. Most times keep boots buckled up during transport, helps keep cables from catching or buckles getting tweaked. The liner has a J bar in the heel pocket to help hold those narrow heels, like mine. With this rubber sole the toe box is slightly wider by a few hairs. All parts have screws, so you can replace nearly everything on your own if you have to.
I ride First Chair model (the same boot, except no power strap), but with Power Strap (similar to a booster straps, I have them on my boots, they are awesome) & the new killer buckles, plus the nice replaceable toe/heels, you can't go wrong. You just gotta have a narrow to medium foot volume.
