|Argo||Did that happen in front of my fire place? What a bummer. If you are flying back through seattle and have a layover, you may stop at the Evo there. Great female boot selection.|

|neni||Thanks guys. I'll give it a try. Can't get worse at this point. Lol, the state of those boots/liners/soles is pathertic. Laces stopper don't hold anymore, my heels slip several inches, they leak, I've wet feet every day, toes crammed, nerves itch... lol, it's really time I let 'em go and buy new ones.|

|BurtonAvenger||So you can remold them, but if they shrank that much you might be fucked. So try to heat them and see if they go back, if that doesn't work, time to play slice and dice and cut them till they can expand. I don't recommend this though.|

|wrathfuldeity||neni I'd take out the liners out of the shell, put the liners on and then sit by the lodge fire and toast the tootisies. With the theory of the "golden marshmellow", i.e., as they warm up, they will soften up and mold to your feet. However the secret of the golden marshmellow...is attention at all times...no beers until the marshmellow is golden. To which was the mistake in PNW...beer goggles.|

As a loooong time foot pain sufferer(errer?) Might just be best to "soldier through" for the remainder!
(…Having said that? I hope someone does chime in with a fix for you!! Foot pain BLOWS!!!)

Stupid me... forgot my liners lasg week in front of a fireplace - thanks PNW for the rain!
They were at very hot temps all night... liner shrunk by ~2 sizes. Before, they were too big. Now? Squeezing tight. Like climbing shoes. Oh dear... my toes have a hard time on this trip...
Also one custom sole has melted. Bumps n waves. Of course, it's the one of the worse foot. Awesome. Back to footpain.
Edit: @Wiredsport, @BurtonAvenger: any quick n dirty fix I could do to these PF liners (Deeluxe)? They'll go into the trash at the end of the trip anyway, but it would be nice to have a little less pain till the end of the week. I have a hair dryer or a microwave as heat source. (I'm in AK ATM. A store ot boot fitter is out of reach by hours of flight.) I've already cut away the elastic over the arch to reduce the tension there, but the general shrinkage of length I dunno how to improve.

As I'm in Hong Kong for the next 10 days followed by Dubai and Paris (which means my season is effectively done), I'm gonna echo Oldman and extend my deeply heartfelt hateyous to everyone of you, powder hounds.
