Burton hail boots
 
Hey all, first post. Just picked up some 08' Burton Hail boots and Im wondering how to form the imprint 3 liners. Do you just ride until it forms to your foot? Or do you stick it in the oven for a few and take it out, put it on and let it form?

well ive heard that you put them on and walk around ur house for a few days so by time u start to ride it will be already formed to ur foot

i just wore em on the hill. just remember to always lace them back up when you take em off or you'll have a bitch of a time getting em back on.

Go stick them in the oven and see what happens, it makes for a fun day.

Haha dude, you should not say that. He may actually try it

I thought there was a machine that you put the liner onto to heat them up?

He might but it'd make for a funny read when he posts up that his liner melted to the oven rack and now he's destroyed an oven rack and a liner.

I dont see any on the east coast. Not to say some locations dont have them. But when I bought my boots out west thats what they did.

I know they do it in Zumiez at the Carousel mall, and I want to say they do it at The Ski Co., but I'm not certain

Guess I'll just use a hair dryer. Thanks for all the useless help :p

Whats the point it won't get the liner evenly heated and really won't do shit. Unless you have a severe foot abnormality, are down sizing, or trying to correct a problem there's no reason to heat mold the liner.
