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?

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

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.
