Heat Molding Nike Liner's

Just got a pair of zoom force 1 and kaiju's. I did not see any information in the box on how to heat em up or on the nike snowboarding site. I've heat molded hockey skates tons of times so im guessing its a similar process. If anyone has any information on times & temperature let me know, thanks

I had my ZF1's heat molded at the shop i bought them from. Pretty much any decent shop should have the equipment to heat them up, so id just bring them to your local shop regardless of where you bought them. My ZF1's packed out a lot after heat molding them just something to think about i guess.

I'm in the same situation(Zoom DK's) and was also wondering how I should do it. I figure it's just the same process as always, stickin them in the oven and jump into them with and without the outershell

Go to a shop. They will a heater that blows hot air, probably not an oven. If you do this, you will probably get molded boots rather than doing it in your oven at home and getting burned liners...

Supposedly you aren't supposed to heat the Nike liners.... That's coming from my buddy who's a manager at a shred shop and the Nike guys told him that.

I got mine molded though.. However I went down a size also.

My advice, tough it out and you will be happily rewarded when they naturally mold to your foot.

The heat moldable liner delivers customizable fit and comfort while the Zoom air sole and Outlast temperature control adds even more comfort for all day sessions.

I know what the site says, but the Nike reps told my buddy who sales their gear that it's better not to heat mold the liners.

Again, I heat molded mine...

How much does having a shop heat mold your boots usually cost? I've had ZF1's for a couple seasons, and I didn't know you could heat mold them.

The shop i work for charges $10 to heat mold liners. If you bought them at a shop go to them and they should do it for free.
