Dec. 9th 2010

Heat molding the liners in your ski boots is one of the best things you can do to achieve a positive experience while skiing and ski-touring in your boots. This video, featuring SCARPA North America CEO Kim Miller and Director of Winter Product Development Chris Clark, is a great ‘how to’ for molding SCARPA’s Intuition liners.

Molding boots gives you a custom fit. Particularly with SCARPA’s Intuition liners, whose proprietary foam is capable of compressing and expanding to accommodate different foot shapes, molding your boots is like getting a custom-tailored suit. As if anyone around here wears suits, but you get our drift.

If there’s one take-away, it’s this: Don’t equate comfort on the sales floor to comfort and performance on the ski hill. The molding process is a key step where you can ensure a positive experience in the mountains.
