Can I get boot fitting material from slidewright.com?

Stuff like this: http://www.svst.com/categories3.aspx?Category=297b8fc6-c713-4f96-a87a-93ab6e15531b

I know this is the tuning forum but I'm about to buy a cinch vise from slidewright and I'd like to get the stuff to fit my telemark boots at the same time. I think somebody from slidewright.com posts around here and can maybe help me out. I've searched the slidewright site for "adhesive foam" and that sort of thing to no avail.

Thank you.

Well.....SVST is one of our suppliers and we can get anything they stock. If there is something you need we can get it ordered and possibly drop shipped.

This brings up a question of general need. As we expand into other DIY products (ie, binding mounting screws, bits, snowboard binding parts, etc), we have considered boots, but with little experience here, we would need some direction of common items. Any suggestions appreciated.

TIA

How about sheets of heat moldable EVA material? Variable thicknesses and densitys and adhesive for laminating together. I want to play around with customizing my own footbeds. (The noise you just heard was a collective gasp from the bootfitters forum...) 

I  seem to only be able to find wholesale sources out of asia......

 I've been looking for some boot buckles but can't find them anywhere.

Go to Walmart's art/craft area and buy 9x12 2mm thick "Foamies" for about a buck/sheet.  They are sheets of craft foam that is a nice density and just the right thickness.  My boys and I have narrow, low volume feet - especially in the heel/ankle area,  and I've used this for years to fit boots.  In some areas I have up to 3 layers (6mm) of foam to take up space.

Cut the foam however you see fit,  then duct tape it to the outside of the boot liner.  Works great and is completely removeable.  Even comes in just about whatever color you like!

What are/is the standard or typical plastic used to fabricate boot shells and boot parts?

 Depends on stiffness/quality. The nordica boot site displays materials used with each boot: http://www.nordica.com/site/skiboot.php?site=19〈=1&id=51
