Heat MOldable Liners
Heat Moldable Liners
Heat moldable liners are boot liners designed to conform to the foot more than a standard liner. Due to the materials used they react to heat to form to the surface they are enclosing, namely your foot.
With the exception on an Intuition Liner which will mold quite exactly, heat moldable liners will usually only add a small bit of conforming over other liners, they will however usually maintain that fit better over time.
Ok, ok but how do you mold the liner. There are 3 methods
1. Let the natural body heat of your foot do it over time while on the slopes. The liner will usually mold in about 3 solid days of shredding.
2. Use a hair dryer on a low setting being careful not to melt any of the material and heat up your boot, then wear the boot clamped on for 10-15 minutes. Repeat a few times.
3. Take it to a shop which has special boot heating assemblies to do it for you.
If you have an Intuition Liner, the story is entirely different, those liners will mold very specifically to your foot and are worth the time to actually dial it in correctly. We recommend you have Intuition liners custom fit at a ski shop. You will not regret it.
