My boots became smaller?

Hi guys, i got a pair of 2009 burton moto last year, used last season and everything went fine, up until this season, i feel my boots became smaller, my toes were scrunching, and it hurts really bad, i heard about getting the liner heat molded, but i dont really understand what it means, so i need some input, thanks in advance.


P.S. i am sure my toe nails were short

Your boot didn't shrink. Now if you're at an age where your foot could grow that might have happened, otherwise I bet your arch collapsed a bit and lengthened your foot it happens.

in lay terms, they heat up the liners to soften the foam and then you put them on and wait about 15 minutes. End result, the foam cools off and "molds" to the shape of your foot. They even have these expanders to put on your toes to make the fit a little bigger. Might be worth checking in to, or just get new boots if you've grown a size since last year.

no you can't do this yourself. Take your boots to a local shop & ask if they can heat mold them for you. They might do it for free or they might charge you $5-10 for it. Ask if they have the expanders for your toes, if you think that the boots are slightly too tight for you.

I'd be surprised if they don't do it there. Call them up and ask them. Tell them you bought some boots there last year and want to know if they can heat-mold them for you.
