I have a pair of Nordica Beast 10's that were professionally fitted and I love. Towards the end of last year and this year for sure, they were getting too loose/packed out. I talked to the folks at Intuition and it was decided Power Wraps size 11 (boots are 28.5) would be best. I was away on business and was near a shop that did Intuitions, and had that model in my size. I had them fitted yesterday, and the guy at the shop seemed to know his stuff and was confident. He just had me in a thin sock (no toe cap!) and they were very tight on fitting, but I had heard that was to be expected. Later, when he had me do a final try-on, they felt better, so I left it at that. When I got home and tried to wear them for awhile, I realized they are going to be (much) too tight. Some online reading informs me toe caps are a must. I am not anywhere near the shop and won't be anytime soon, so I was wondering if I could remold them at home. I have seen 2 methods online...Sock filled with hot uncooked rice for 8-10 minutes in boot, and then foot (with toe cap and footbed) in for molding. Would this work to modify the toe space? Alternately, I could reheat them in the oven and re-insert them, then foot in. Any advice what would be best? Unfortunately, for now it'll be a case of doing something myself, or taking them out.
Thank you for any help you can offer,
