Are the Motos even heat moldable? No offense but these boots have historically been a cheap entry level boot. Hard to imagine Burton spending the money on the materials and adhesives in the liner that are needed for heat molding.

And a quick Google/Burton site review answers my own question - they are heat moldable. I'll leave the comment above as a lesson in spouting off before doing 2 minutes of research.

I'm a big fan of heat molding, have done it with my last few pairs of boots and it provides that instant "broken in" feel that you usually don't get until mid-season. That said, I've owned Motos before (have 3 old pair in the basement now) and as snowklinger above said - they are noodle socks. Not sure why you'd even need to heat mold them??
