Heat Moldable Liner Important Instructions: 

La Sportiva recommends that you read the following instructions carefully before proceeding to heat mold your boot.  The company does not accept any responsibility for damage caused to third parties due to incorrect use of product.  La Sportiva recommends that heat molding is carried our at a specialist shop.

Steps to follow for the correct adaptation of the shoe to your foot: 

1) Turn on the oven and set to the ideal temperature of 130 degrees C.

2) Put the La Sportiva liner in the oven and leave to warm up for 10/12 minutes. 

3) Make sure the external boot shell is completely open and that it is kept at room temperature.

4) Insert the foot bed into the liner to determine the "top-cap" height within the boot.  Use a sock to help the foot slide easily into position.

5) Remove the liner from the oven and insert your foot.  Make sure that the underfoot seams present are not deformed.  Proceed as quickly as possible so that the lining does not cool down thus losing its properties.

6) Fasten the liner tightly.

7) Allow the foot to slip within the liner and the liner shell, keeping the gaiter open.  Be careful not to damage the liner in any way.

8) Make sure the heel is well positioned towards the back of the liner. 

9) Buckle the external shell with just sufficient adjustment in tension and set the boot aside until completely dry (about 10 minute) 

After Care: 

  • Remove the liner after every outing
  • Allow the boot to dry naturally, never by a heat source
  • Avoid over heating the liners.  Store in a cool dry place during the summer months
  • The liners can be hand washed in cold water

Really happy with these boots. They replaced my Nepals for everything but the warmest spring snow climbing. I'm pretty consistently a size 10 & got these in a 44, which is a perfect fit. I have a relatively narrow and low volume foot. When i purchased these boots the toes were snug and I felt pressure from the top of the boot right over my toes. I heat molded the liners and after that they fit fantastic (i cut a thin sock to cover the front 2/3 of my feet, placed 1 toe spacer over my toes & then placed a ski sock over that. I placed the heated liners on with an aftermarket footbed slid on the shell and laced them up. I walked around for ~20 minutes, did some calf raises over a broom handle. My heel is locked down pretty damn well! This did the trick! I've hiked a few 14ers, lead WI4/5 in them and have not been disappointed in their performance. Since they fit so well, they actually climb vertical ice better than my Nepals. I am so happy I pulled the trigger on these boots! If you are looking for a really warm, sturdy boot with a reasonably customized fit that does everything well, you should check out this boot.

Wonderful fit and quality! A great liner as well. The laceing helps low profile feet get a good fit. A good walker, and crank it down with little or no heal slip for the steep stuff. Comfy, yes for a double boot, and very warm! 40 years in mountaineering boots and THIS IS IT!!!
