Any home remedies for heating up boots for a perfect fitting?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My Lange CRL90 boots are designed to take advantage of those heat machines to allow the boot to be molded to your foot. I was wondering if there is a way to do this at home that works just as well as a shop with those small heat machines?

Hairdriers would probably work, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. Not that the boot heaters in shops are the most high tech devices, but at least with them you know they're designed for proper temperature and heat distribution for ski boots. You could probably get most of the effect yourself, but if it were me I'd just take them into a shop. Most will do it for free anyways, especially if they carry the same boots.

just ski them, heating the liners just speeds up the pack out that the boot will do anyways. beers to ski shop guys is ALWAYS a good idea....

I know it's common practice, but I've always wondered why you should take out the footbeds before heating them. Can someone shed some light on the reasons for this, either with stock footbeds, regular superfeet (etc.), or custom footbeds?

Buy some of those Tecnicas with the built in heat molding coils in the liners

Depending on the material the footbed is made of, if placed in the liner when the liner is being cooked, the result can be a heat deformed footbed.:

I'm with mntlion on this one. Ski them out and let your own heat do the packing.
