heat molding boots

I just purchased a pair of Salomon Malamutes to replace a pair of F22s which were too small. I understand they have a heat moldable liner. What's the method for molding these? Liner out and on the foot, laced tight, hit 'em with a hair dryer?

Thanks in advance.

so no heat beyond body heat is needed for what many people call HEAT moldable boots then?

If you just wear them they will break in eventually. Taking them to a shop to get them propperly heat molded with the correct machine will give good instant results. Damn near any place that sells Salomon or other high quality boots should have a machine. That includes places like large Dick's. There should be instructions with your boots that detail this to you. If you can't find a machine I have also heard of things like putting them in the oven or in a clothes dryer on high. My friend has used his oven to heat mold the liners for a his Salomon inline skates a few times.

your body produces heat. i think most are made so that your body heat is enough to mold the foam.

Yeah I just got mine done at a shop.. works really well.. dunno if I'd bother with a hair dryer.

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

Anyone else find this sentence funny.

The thing with the malamute is don't bother getting it heat molded all you're doing is killing the foam in there quicker as its not a true intuition liner.
