HEAT MOLDING GUIDES

TKO Spot Molding Guide

TKO Boot Sizing & Heat Molding Guide

Read below if you recently purchased TKO boots and have an area that is causing discomfort, or you are questioning the overall fit of your new boots.

Check sizing:

Remove the foot-bed (if applicable) from the right boot, place the foot on the foot-bed with heel all the way back. You want your toes as close to the end as possible without going over. Don’t worry about width – most important is length to ensure the boot has a full fit. Width is moldable. All TKO boots have a Barefoot Fit that makes it easy to widen the toe box area. Do NOT buy your boots big to accommodate for width. 

Lacing | Tightening heel cup:

Help secure / tighten the heel cup by sitting down while lacing your boots. Be sure your foot is under your knee (not in front of you). Tie your laces from the bottom to the top and fix Powerstrap while your foot is under your knee. This technique ensures the heel is completely seated into your heel cup. Note: This becomes a natural fit once your boots are broken-in and have conformed to our heel/foot. Skaters tend to have their foot extended out in front of them while lacing, forcing their heel forward and out of the heel cup. TKO Flex-Fit compliments heel wrap securing your heel when skating.

Spot molding:

All TKO boots are heat moldable. However, we suggest skating in them three two-four times first. We recommend using a heat gun and only spot molding where needed (not a blow dryer).

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  1. 1. If your boot is slightly short in the toe area or you have more pressure in the forward toe area than you like, refer to heel molding. You gain space by improving heel fit. Getting your heel further back in the heel cup gives you more forward toe room.
  2. Do not walk in your boots, soles are not made for walking.
  3. Only stand during molding if our boots are snugger than you like. We suggest you stay sitting until the boots completely cool for best results. NEVER stand and emulate skating moves while the boots are hot/warm. This will disturb the molding process and not allow the upper to copy your foot one to one.

-Toe box: Thoroughly massage (with heat gun) outside toe area (sides of toe-box) for about 10 minutes moving the heat gun slowly and steady (never stop moving the heat gun). Keeping the gun about 4-6 inches away from the boot. The leather that wraps the toe box will become soft. Put your foot in the skate wearing what you skate in, stay sitting with your foot under your knee until completely cooled (about 15 minutes). If you want extra space use socks, stuff something firm in the area you want to spread (make more space), after it cools remove the additional material and you will have additional space in that specific area.

-Heel: Thoroughly massage back and back-sides (just below the UPPER) and the MATERIAL area for about 10 minutes moving the heat gun slowly and steady (never stopping the heat gun). The entire backside of the boot should be heated but the focus must be just be blow the leather on the back quarter of the boot. If you only heat the upper area ankle high the counters will not mold to the best of their ability. Keep the heat gun about 4-6 inches away from the boot. The composite becomes pliable. Put your foot in the boot (suggest barefoot, thin socks or skate SOX/booties) CAUTION: CHECK IF THEY ARE TO HOT FIRST. Lace up the boot from the very bottom, keep your foot under your knee while tying the boot TIGHTLY (TIGHTER than you will ever skate them for a superb molding). Stay sitting with your foot under your knee until completely cool (about 15 minutes). You can speed up the cooling process with a cold cloth.

TKO Oven Molding Guide

Heat Molding by Oven

YOU CAN MOLD YOUR BOOTS IN THE OVEN WITH YOUR FRAME MOUNTED BUT MUST REMOVE WHEELS. WARNING: FRAME/ ALL ALUMINUM OR METAL PARTS WILL BE VERY HOT!

TKO suggests wearing your boots 3-4 times prior to any type of heat molding.

TKO boots can be molded multiple times. Our first choice is spot molding with a heat gun (see TKO boot fitting and heat molding guide) which you can do with your plates mounted. However, if you are looking to mold your entire boot prior to mounting, we recommend oven molding.

NOTE: Because it is possible to over-heat your boots in an oven, please be sure to stay with your equipment during the entire molding process, stay very attentive.

Keep in mind there are two different types of ovens, convection and element. It is important you know which oven you will be using. Convection is safer and better. If you are using an element oven you must be extra careful, making sure the boots are in the middle and not touching any of the elements.

Getting started:

  1.  Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees, 93 Celsius
  2. One boot at a time unless you have lots of experience (still not recommended)
  3. If you have a plate mounted, be sure trucks/parts and toe stops are removed
  4. Remove: Velcro straps and foot beds, unzip zip lace cover if you have one
  5.  Open laces up enough that you can slip your foot in easily after removing it from the oven
  6. Be sure tongue and laces are tucked inside the boot
  7. If you’re not going barefoot, have on your feet the socks or skate Sox/booties
  8. Have chair ready in a place where you can sit comfortable for about 15 minutes.

Placing boot in oven:

  1. Leave oven on
  2. Place boot upright, sitting on the rack or baking sheet, center rack, center of oven, be sure it is not touching any part of the oven.
  3.  Leave in the oven for 10-15 minutes (CHECK ON THE BOOTS EVERY MINUTE AFTER 10 MINUTES) Suggest using a timer for the first 10 minutes. We have seen it all and we want to avoid all melt downs.
  4. At 10 min. check it by squeezing the lower ankle area using a glove or hot pad. If you can move the counters with a firm squeeze, move to the next step. If not leave it in the oven for one-minute increments until it becomes pliable.
  5. When the boot is ready carefully remove the boot from the oven (boot will be HOT)
  6. Reinsert foot bed
  7. Sitting down, put your boot on your foot. Being very careful placing your tongue and tightening laces from the bottom up. (Eyelets and all metal/alloy parts will be extremely hot). Make laces tighter than you would skate in them but don’t GO CRAZY TIGHT (pulling out eyelets!), the materials are hot and soft. After tying them up stay sitting with your foot flat and your knee bent 90 degree for 15 minutes. (DO NOT STAND UP)
  8. It is OK to stand after 15 minutes, (DO NOT WALK OR PULL UP YOUR HEEL) The material takes about 1 hour to set up 100%. Ok to remove your boot after 25 minutes. Leave skates to sit and cool completely.
  9.  Repeat for second boot.
