HOME FITTING INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT: 

BEFORE HEAT MOLDING, TRY BOTH LINERS ON IN YOUR BOOT WITH ANY FOOTBEDS/ORTHOTICS YOU INTEND TO USE, TO ENSURE THEY FIT YOUR BOOT AND FEET PROPERLY. NOT TOO TIGHT, NOT TOO SLOPPY.

** DO NOT HEAT MOLD IF THE LINERS DON’T FIT! **

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

New Intuition Liners

Your Current Boot Shells

Intuition Fit Kit*

A Microwave and 3 to 4 pounds of rice!

* Your Intuition Fit Kit should include 1 pair of stockings and 1 rubber toe cap. ** Short or long grain, uncooked rice (do not use instant rice). 3 lbs for sizes up to US Men’s 9 (Mondo 27) (4 lbs for higher sizes). 

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE STEPS


For a more aggressive mold: Heat for maximum suggested time. Be mindful of volume and size. A low volume (thinner) liner requires less heating time, as will a size 4 compared to a size 15.

ADDITIONAL FITTING TIPS

  • Check fit before heating liners. Put liners in boots, with footbeds if you plan to use them. If toes are touching the end, that’s fine, the toecap will create extra space for you during molding. If they are curled up or jammed into the end of the liners then they are too small and you may need a larger size. Ideally, the liner should feel snug all over, with no uncomfortable pressure points. Feeling a bit too tight is okay because the liner will compress when heated and buckled down.

  • We do not recommend heat molding a liner that feels loose. Do not rely on liner to expand to fill voids or sloppiness, instead consider choosing a thicker liner.
  • If liners felt tight when you first tried them on, buckle extra tight when molding to compress foam and thin it out.
  • If liners felt just right, buckle loosely so liner is held firmly but not compressed. This allows you to retain maximum thickness.
  • After initial molding, if you need to adjust the fit in a specific area (ex. ankle or toe box) consider making a smaller rice bag to use rather than re-molding the entire liner.
  • Cuff can be reheated and adjusted by shaping rice bag into a more condensed ball shape. Lay boot on side to allow rice bag to rest in top of cuff area.
  • When heating an overlap style liner, you will want to position rice bag in between overlap of liner to heat the outer overlap.
  • “Break-in period” Try skiing a couple of times first and then make adjustments to the fit as needed.
