Alright guys... I so I have no good boot fitters around me. Only one I have is a bike/ski shop (Mostly bike...) My foot measured out at 28.5 and they say go a size down for a snug fit. Which is what they did. I have the Dalbello Il Moro ID in 27.5. Fit fine except they squeeze my ankle. They don't have a 28.5 in store (Would have to ship it) Would they be fine if I had them molded or should I risk it with the 28.5 and them possibly be bigger?
Remolding stuff is generally at the shops discretion, but I’ve had no problem remolding liners in boots as long as they haven’t been skied in...
im still of the opinion that heatmolding doesn’t do much more than pre pack the boot.. skiing does far more to shape the liner for the foot. (Obviously this depends on the liner.. zipfits and intuitions downright require heat molds for proper initial fit..)
To tell you the truth though... a lot of the time I only heat mold the liners in order to play the psychological game with clients... if it makes them initially feel better having their foot in a toasty boot, they’re gonna leave with that boot.. takes the hemming and hawing out of the final sale and gets them stoked on the good time they’re about to have rather than the money they’re gonna spend on what’s for most people a decade long investment..
