The Process


The customisation process takes 20 minutes. The first step is to mold the insoles. We do this by heating the insoles,  placing the insoles into slippers and then putting the slippers on your feet. Your slippered feet then go into booties which inflate and mold the insoles to the contours of your foot.


The second step is to mold the boots.  You take the slippers off and the insoles go into the boots, and you put the boots on and place them back into the inflatable booties which then compress and mold the boots around your feet.

And voila! Your new fully molded boots are ready to hit the trails!
