Salomon F2.0's

The tech that sold these to me said I should bring them back after a couple days of wearing them around and strapping in (to make sure I liked them and they really fit well) to have them baked and formed. I didn't see anything about heat forming the insert on the F2.0's on the Salomon site. It says something about body heat or whatever.

Should I go back to my local to have these baked and fit?

Thanks,

OD

I have the 3.0's and never had them baked as I believe they have the mystic footbed that conforms to your foot kinda like a semi soft gel. The 2.0's should be the same way..

You can have them heat molded but it'll do it on it's own after a few days out and will hold its shape better in the long run.....it'll just cost a bit with a couple days of sore feet.

I'm on day 300+ with my 2.0's and their still in great shape am hoping they make it through 1 more season, they look and perform great minus a bit of heal lift which I hope to resolve with some new insoles.

Thanks for the replies. I don't think I'll bother. I'll just break them in the old fashioned way.

A shop can heat 'em up, but it's not really needed.

How do you put J bars in a boot that doesn't have a removable liner?

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality
