Scarpa Intuition Liners

Postby seano732 » Sat Jan 19, 2013 10:22 am

Any of the brethren have experience heat molding these liners? I just picked up a pair of the Scarpa Omegas (suhweet!), but there's no instructions on the molding process. I'm guessing i don't just throw em in the oven @ 350* and wait for them to rise or something. Any help is greatly appreciated! Peace!

Check REI. I think it is a free service. Had mine molded there last year.

Yes it costs a few bucks, but I have enjoyed the work of Lee Kinney for nearly 15 years now and will keep going back to him as long as he's fitting boots http://thecustomfoot.com/ He fit my Intuition's a few years back~

I molded my own scarpa liners last year following these instructions:

https://intuitionliners.com/fitting/home-fitting-instructions/

My feet are "special", so understanding the process and being able to make small tweaks was important to me. You can easily re-mold all (or part) of your boot if you experience any issues. I've re-molded the tongue on one boot and the heel on another. After my experience on Aconcagua last month, I'm thinking about re-molding my toe box to make room for chemical toe warmers. I've heard that you should only mold three times max; however, I'm not sure what happens to the foam if heat it too many times.

I have some complex fit/volume issues, so I contacted Intuition and they sent me an assortment of foam sheets for free -- amazing customer service!

Good luck!
