Boot molding cost?

Sup Guy's...question for you I rode a pair of 32 Lashed boots last season which I plan on riding again this year. The boots arent snug a little loose fitting, my question is will heat molding them mold the shape of my foot or loosen then up even more? And roughly what Im I looking at pricing if I take them to a local shop to get them them fitted?

I found 32 boots loose fitting as well. I ended up buying Vans with a heat moldable liner and when I had it heat molded it did form to my feet because the liner increases in volume when it's heated but it only lasted for a few days of riding and as the boot broke in the liner packed out creating more space then when I originally bought them. I ended up buying boot shims from tognar to close the space.

Buying insoles will help make them fit tighter but Extremo was not referring to those. Here is a link to what he was talking about. About half way down the page you will see "SKI & SNOWBOARD BOOT TONGUE SHIMS". After that heading there are all sorts of things that will make your boot fit better depending on where you need extra padding.

Hey Laz167, I ride e 32 Lashed as well.. You shouldn't have to pay to get your liner heat moulded at your local.
If they aren't so friendly, you may have to fork out a nominal fee or a boot-fitting fee, tho the latter is unlikely.
What you may have to pay for, if you so opt for, are custom fitting services.
