The heat molding process, provides the player with the opportunity to further improve the fit of their skate. The process involves heating the skates at a high temperature, followed by tightly tying the laces with the foot inside the boot. After the player sits with the bottom of the blades against a soft surface for about 5 minutes, the boots will have molded to the shape of player’s feet. This process helps reduce the break-in period for new skates that have a very stiff boot.
The boot is heated before you step inside and lace it up. Compressed air is used to shape the entire boot ideally to match the foot – and the boot retains this shape once it has cooled down.
