    aaargh ski *&?% boots - rant alert

    [rant]the jokers at Brugener sport have just destroyed the only pair of ski boots that almost fit me. FORNICATION IN A VERY HOT PLACE! I said stretch not blow up like a balloon (which is kind of funny if you picture it mentally).

    Anyway, about to take the boots to another shop who may(hopefully) have a clue. I'm not holding out much hope though.[/rant]

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    Bummer.

    I bet they were careless with the heat gun. A hot tank and a money tool are the best combo for getting a stretch. Go to a good boot fitter ...if it's not too late.

    I have spent many nights doing boot bench work. Grinds, stretches, cants, rivets, softening, firming ...you name it.
