Are both the boot liner and corresponding boot shell pre-heated separately in their specific “ovens” – with the warmed liner then reinserted back into the hot shell as you step into for the hold & mold process?
I believe the liner heater runs at perhaps 170F with the shell oven approaching 200F. I’m wondering if inserting the liner into the hotter shell would cause damage to the liner. In fact, is heating the liner even necessary due to the heat generated by the shell?
During the molding process, do you advise your clients to stand neutral or flexed forward a bit?
If your client has particular hot spots such as bunion or 6th toe, is using additional pads placed on liner for relief practical with the Salomon plastic when fully heated or are those specific areas punched by you outside heat molding process?
