Since I like the shop/store I wont get into it but they did things wrong, verified by Intuition and Dalbello. No I won't say what shop. If you go to a shop and they say they want to mold the liner for 40 minutes (I didn't let them do that to mine), you're probably in the shop I was in.
I have an email from Intuition answering my questions about this stores process and Intuition stated that heating for 40 minutes takes life out of the boot needlessly. 12-15 minutes max.
No toe caps against my wishes. They said the proper way was to leave the footbed (Superfeet) in the boot. I questioned this but since they were warrantying their work I agreed.
When I checked the liner under the foot bed there is evidence of the footbed molding into the liner.
In their defense, I went skiing this past Sunday and after a few runs and a few more adjustments, the boots felt great. So much so that when everyone else was taking their new boots off at lunch to give their feet a break, I left mine on with them buckled because they felt perfect.
I had difficulty walking in them up and down stairs but I just spent a couple of hours dailing them in and didn't want to loose it. I could wiggle my toes but my foot was completely enveloped. It is a very snug fit with no pressure points.
I did leave the #4 wedge in. I skied with it in at first but then took it out. I'm planning on trying it in again now that the boots are dialed in. Mainly just trying different things.
I was happy with the service
, not happy the process
, but I'm very happy with the fit of the boots
