I actually picked up another pair of the same boot to swap into when these break down. But i'm surprised at how long they've lasted I didnt think they'd make it 2 years and now it looks like they might make it 3.

I bought some Vans BFB and took them to the snowboard shop that uses a K2 heat blower to mold liners and it worked pretty good. The surprising thing is you dont need that much heat. So I'd suggest using a blow dryer for a little while until they puff up a bit even if the effects are minimal and let them mold to your feet the rest of the way by riding them.
I'd take what this guy is saying about intuition with a grain of salt as he didn't have it molded properly and probably didn't have the right size to begin with. Let alone without looking at your foot he's just recommending what he uses which surprise surprise is pretty typical of people on forums. Oh I use it that means its sick bro!

Seems like a waste to buy a boot for the liner and not even have it properly heat-molded. Buyer beware.
Eh I do intuition liners in snowboard boots at my shop. But I've also been a ski boot fitter for years and took everything I learned from that over to snowboarding. Intuition liners work wonders I have them in my K2's, I put them in my Vans last season, and I'm probably never going back to a traditional liner again. They're warmer, full custom fit, and offer way more support.
