    DIY Heat Molding Sidas Boot liners

    So I basically got gifted some Atomic Redster 130s and they have Sidas liners. They're obviously heat moldable but my lame google skillz could not locate any advice how to heat for a DIY mold for these particular liners. Same as Intuitions? I've probably done a dozen or more of those for family and friends.

    School me...

    1) you CAN mold them, but skiing on them for a few days is the same as well

    2) same as all/any other liner for heating/molding

    Take a picture of the liner and let us see it, SIDAS makes lots of different liners.

    Some go in the oven, some on the heat stax, some are foam injected. Typically the OEM Atomic ones go on the stax.

    I call bullshit on number 2. I had some dumbass salesman tell me the same thing once and had lots of issues until I molded them in my oven. Boom, done, no issues. I have done my own molding/fitting ever since. Sorry, but this is a huge pet peeve of mine and I get tired of hearing it from people that should know better.

    Might it decrease liner life? Sure, but so what, I want a good fit.
