Should I heat mould my new motos?

First pair and I don't know whether to just wear them or take them to be heat moulded!
Opinions?

I have the motos, and am on my 2nd pair now, I had one heat moulded and didn't bother with the other and honestly couldn't tell a difference. Might as well go have it done since it's free anyway. Maybe you have an odd shaped foot and it will help to have it form better.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Not really a big deal either way in my opinion, but I like to wear boots a couple times on the slope then heat mould them afterwards if I think I need it.

Any good store should do it for free if you want to try them on the slopes first then come back another day and get em heat moulded, assuming you bought the boots from them that is.

Motos are like noodle socks compared to most boots, just wear em.

Agreed. I wear them around the house watching tv for a week or two and they fit like a glove.

Unless you have fit issues getting them molded riding is a better fit.

Are the Motos even heat moldable? No offense but these boots have historically been a cheap entry level boot. Hard to imagine Burton spending the money on the materials and adhesives in the liner that are needed for heat molding.

And a quick Google/Burton site review answers my own question - they are heat moldable. I'll leave the comment above as a lesson in spouting off before doing 2 minutes of research.

I'm a big fan of heat molding, have done it with my last few pairs of boots and it provides that instant "broken in" feel that you usually don't get until mid-season. That said, I've owned Motos before (have 3 old pair in the basement now) and as snowklinger above said - they are noodle socks. Not sure why you'd even need to heat mold them??
