Default heat molding questions.

I have Luigino Victory boots. when I aqua tech bag them do i tie them tight to my foot? Do I use my hands to mold themlike push or squeeze certain areas? or just sit in them?

Luigino Heat Molding Instructions

Snug, but not tight. The glue melts in the heat, and tying them too tight will pull the pieces apart.

I pushed mine (Pinnacle) around the ankle bones, but the Luigino directions don't mention anything about this. This is dependent upon whether you are molding them for a general fit or to address some problem area(s). For a general fit, you just sit there in the position stated in step 13 of the link I provided. If you have a hotspot, you can push the boot in or out to get rid of that spot.

I stand in them in skating position, with them bolted to the frames

Lots of good info on molding out there.
My method involves putting on the hot boot(with frames) and then wrapping the whole boot with ace bandages. I sit in a comfy chair with my knees bent at 90 degrees for 30 mins.
I then use a heat gun to hit the spots where my navicular bone rubs and then push out with a blunt object. So far so good, it may take a couple of times.

After the initial mold, I use a hair dryer (I don't have a heat gun) and the FootFitter Bunion Stretcher Ball & Ring Cast Iron to push out the hot spots and it works really well.
