Default EDEA Heat Moulding

Hi Everyone,

My partner's boot we had heated and pushed out for a bunion only a fortnight ago and it was a considerable lump in the side of the boot.

Fast forward to now and the impression on the boot appears to be reducing.

Boots have not been left in hot cars or anything silly like that, ambient air temp during training would not be above 28 degrees C.

My boots were heated and pushed out in the toe box and general width and have begun getting tighter the last 2 months until tonight, pressure on the little toe and big toe.

Has anyone else come across this issue of the EDEA plastic/resin returning to its original shape?

Rob

Smile In general...Yes. Yes I have...lol!

I have several Edea Boots. And I think it is typical to heat treat Edea boots.
They are not made of natural cow hide...lol!

In general it took several heat treatings to get the boots right. I did all the Heat Moldable stuff myself.

So I can's say why the heat treating goes away but can give my method of heat treating the boots.

They say to use a Hair Dryer and not a Heat Gun. I put a boot expander in the boot. Stretch the boot to the size you want, then lace the boots tight around the boot stretcher inside the boot.

Now you have to heat treat the boot to get it to shape around the expander.

15 -20 minutes does the job. If the boot returns to the original position do it again. Eventually you will get the boot to stay in the shape which is needed.

Sincerely,

Larry Otani

I did not see any difference with heat vs. no heat. I did have to leave the clamp over night and re-form about 4 times to get the correct shape.
