Full Tilt took some heat when the Tom Wallisch and Henrik Harlaut and Phil Casabon's (B&E) boots were nowhere to be found last year at SIA. But it was all a clever rouse. Full Tilt didn't scrap the boots, they reinvented them, taking each boot to the next level.
Wallisch's boot, built on the mould of the FT Soul Shell, features rubber souls, a larger toebox and penguin-inspired graphics, as apparently that's The Pretzel Man's favourite animal. On the B&E front, Henrik Harlaut and Phil Casabon's boot received a completely new chassis: FT's all new Evolution Shell, which features a 102mm last for those with bigger toe bones.
These kicks are available only in limited release, so if you want them on your feet this season, you better start making calls now.
For more information, read the full release from Full Tilt below:
Tom Wallisch, Phil Casabon (aka B-Dog) and Henrik Harlaut (aka E-Dollo) have been hard at work with Full Tilt’s designers and engineers creating two new versions of the original 3-piece ski boot. The new Tom Wallisch Pro and B&E make up FT’s new LTD collection.
The newest incarnation of the Tom Wallisch Pro was built by Tom for Tom. Constructed on the classic FT Soul Shell chassis, this boot features rubber soles for added traction and a slightly roomier toe box for increased comfort. Its durable aluminum widetrack buckles, a cinch powerstrap and INTUITION’s pro liner work together to keep shredders firmly seated in their boots during all on-hill antics. The boot’s functionality speaks to Tom’s style almost as much as the graphics – the black and yellow palette has a full boot print of Tom’s favorite animal, the penguin. Don’t let the flightless bird graphics fool you though, these limited edition kicks are ready to launch skiers higher and farther than ever.
B-Dog and E-Dollo, a duo whose creativity and style constantly transform the status quo, designed the new B&E boot with the same ethos as their skiing. Their limited edition shred sneaker features the all-new 102mm Evolution Shell, a comfortable and wider option that’s perfect for skiers who haven’t found a match with a narrower lasted boot and are in need of a more comfortable option for long days in (and out of) the park. Phil and Henrik regularly progress skiing on both a technical and stylish level; the B&E boot is the next step in that progression.
Full Tilt, a brand that has always made a point of utilizing athletes’ input to develop new products, sees the LTD collection as its greatest offerings to date.
Only available as limited releases, the Tom Wallisch Pro and B&E will literally take skiers to new heights.
