    Hi all, just wondering if anybody has an opinion about the best place in Melbourne to get my G-fit liners moulded? Looking for both reasonable price and sound expertise. Not confident to mould them myself. Thanks in advance. :)

    Hi mate, Footpro Malvern can take care of that for you also. While you are at Footpro we can check your stance alignment and make sure your cuff alignment / canting is set up properly for you. Stance Alignment check and adjustment FOC if you mention this post.

    Is that in relation to parallel or tele stance? Since my boots are tele. ;)

    If your Tele boots have a cuff adjustment / canting screws then we can make the adjustments easily, without canting screws (some Tele boots don't have this feature) there are other ways to adjust stance alignment issues. Still worth reviewing if you are interested.

    Is it absolutely necessary to mould the liners or will they eventually conform naturally to my feet over several uses? Just not sure if I'll even get time to mould them.

    They will mould over time. Heating definitely accelerates the break in process but if you don't mind a bit of pain you'll get there eventually just wearing them.

    I'll see how they go. They're "new" Syner-G's (Old, but never worn or used).

    Have a look at the Intuition website for instructions. It's not hard to DIY. That said, getting it done by a bootfitter can really add value.
