I did the same thing for the lotus boot. I ordered my IDs in a 1/2 size smaller too and they definitely have a higher volume fit then the stock liners. I had to shave down my footbeds (cork) because I felt that i was really high in the boot but that did the trick and the heat mold really really does wonders. Best thing I did with these boots by far. and don't skimp if at all possible, go for the golds.
If your going for an intuition liner make sure an experienced bootfitter molds them for you, there's only 2 chances before the liner begins to shrink. They need to be heated with intuition stacks, not an oven, and they will also have the proper toe caps and molding stockings. and i like to use stance ramps to help secure the heel pocket, or step up to foam injected liners.
I used normal liner heater... I had the toe caps but blew off the rest. To be honest, the shop I got my liners from is a really good shop but I didn't hear any of this. advice? my boots seem fine and whats with the shrinking?? The only thing I've noticed is your car at Hood in the summer is not where you want to leave your boots... they remolded themselves...
Hey Just ordered myself some Intuition Fx race liners to replace my worn out salomon shogun liners (race) and I have to say Rob & Crystal @ Intuition have been great. really quick to reply to all of my questions.
Intuition liners shrink if they get too hot (in both height and length) ie;15 min in the boot oven is pushing it, I like around 12 minutes from cold or ten if warm already.
They are much warmer than stock race liners and way more molded. I would expect to get around 100 days max from a good new stock (non intuition liner) but maybe 200 out of a well kept Intuition.
Don't put them on boot dryers or they may shrink, at the very least keep an eye on them.
