Think simple, think power, think stomping the landing. Don’t be alarmed that the boot doesn’t have the antiquated 4-buckle look, Movement is redefining comfort and stability with their Velcro over-the-cuff buckle that has not let customers down. If you are hesitant to ski without a defined number of buckles, we can send buckle stickers complimentary with a boot purchase.* The Movement Free Tour boot gives a sublime 62° in walk-range without sacrificing the solid skiing feel of a real ski boot. The Grilamid-Carbon cuff and shell give “send it” confidence and the SKYWALK soles offer extra grip and control when booting that precarious line. Don't be fooled by the svelte good looks, the Free Tour boot is for skiing hard and living large.
- The Power Strap Buckle optimizes comfort and performance with a precise cuff-hold.
- Ultralon Instant Fit Liner provides great warmth and are heat moldable.
- Ski/Walk Mode with 62° of articulation giving that almost-hiking feel.
- Lower Instep Buckle with Ergo Micro Adjustment for a perfected fit.
- Dynafit certified tech inserts ensure consistent performance.
- 4-Piece construction makes it easier to get boots on and off.
*Buckle stickers are subject to availability. We are currently out and don’t plan on making any.

Questions & Reviews
I did miss the awesome fit of the Scarpa Intuition liner from my F1. The movement has a good Palau liner but the comfort and custom mold is not anywhere close to what you get with the F1 liner, and for me that’s a big deal having a high instep and wider forefoot. The newest version of the free tour has a wider last and I had no issues with width, just the overall “feel” of the foot inside the boot. It just seemed a little crude compared to the plush fit of the F1. Solution? I picked up a Scarpa Pro Flex Evo liner (the stock F1 liner), threw it in the Free Tour, and after a shop mold it fits like a glove, I don’t feel the cuff and shell through the liner anymore, and it’s only 5-10 grams heavier than my F1. I’ve paired it with my Movement Alp Tracks 106 and it’s been a perfect match. I call it my “ultralight free ride” setup. I think it’s the perfect boot to drive wider but lighter skis (BD helio 104, Blizzard Zero G 105, Movement Alp Tracks 106, DPS Wailer 112) without having to step into the weight category of a Maestrale RS, Technica Zero G, Hoji Free, etc. You won’t get the resort boot performance of the mentioned beef boots, but for the light is right crowd, you won’t be missing anything and the walkability and weight of the Free Tour will be much more in line with your touring style.

The last width of a boot is proportional to the shell size, so my question for you is, what is the length of your foot in mm? As far as the fit of the Free Tour is concerned, it has a medium to wide last in the forefoot, and an overall relatively high volume fit.

I’m considering this boot for my replacing a tlt7, which is a great boot but lacks a bit of downhill power to pair with my movement session 89. i’m also considering the explorer boot - how would you judge the trade off walking comfort - skiing power between the two boots?
It depends on the model of TLT7 that you are coming from. The TLT7 Carbonio and Performance models have a better walk mode than the TLT7 Expedition model due to their thinner liner. Therefore, the walk mode performance of the Movement will be a bigger step down from the TLT7 Carbonio and Performance models than the TLT7 Expedition model.
In terms of downhill performance, the Movement Free Tour is going to be a step up. It is a stiffer boot that will allow for great power transfer to your ski. That boot will pair well with a Session 89, as that is a relatively stiff ski aimed at the downhill experience.
Between the Movement Free Tour and the Movement Explorer, I would recommend the Free Tour. The Free Tour is a stiffer boot and more performance oriented. The Explorer is a boot aimed at the junior category. It has a thicker liner as well as a softer flex, which provides less downhill performance than the Free Tour. Additionally, the thicker liner causes greater friction, making for a slightly lower performance in walk mode.
A final thing to mention, in terms of fit, the toe box of the Movement Free Tour is slightly narrower than the TLT7 that you are coming from. Depending on how your foot fits the TLT7 a liner mold may be sufficient, or it could require some punching out.
How is the range of motion with the cuff buckled tight? Can you skin or climb in crampons with the cuff buckled?
Looking to replace a TLT6P, hopefully with an upgrade in skiing performance. Maximum ski length would be 185 cm and 106 underfoot and of course smaller skis as well.
I'm 6'1" 170 lbs.
I'm considering bying the Freetour boot but have never tried the brand's skiboots before.
I have skied Scarpa Maestrale(old version) and Salomon mtn lab in recent years. How would you describe the skiability of the Freetour like flex, lateral rigidity, ROM and fit compared to those mentioned above.
Best regards Olof
I just put the Petzl Leopard crampon on the Movement boot and it works. Both the Leopard and the Lynx have the same heel locking mechanism so you should be good to go. Hope this helps.
What is the last size of this boot?
