Mr Avenger. as is your standard, you presume much and know little. perhaps you should remain within your sphere of comfort and stick to telling 12 year old why you are so damned awesome?
i have looked into the technology of boot liners and foot beds etc because i have enjoyed both the benefits of a well fitting boot and the consequences of a painful one. from speaking to manufacurers such as Vans UK and techies in stores who heat mould day in day out, in several countries, and who are undoubtedly more experienced (and less vitriolic) than yourself, heat moulding can expedite the compression of the liners to a person's foot contours.
but as this process occurs anyway, it is a gimmick. and because the simple pressure applied by a person's mass is so much greater than the resistence offered by the material forming the liner, these contours of comfort are immediately made anyway. it is this exact same principle which sees you adviceon correct sizing due to 'packing out'.
believe your own sales pitch if you like, but my boots need heat treatng to allow me to ride, about as much as my buttocks need a padded seat before i can poop; and there are companys who solely exist to make after market bog seats too! do you now feel constipated?
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
