Skate Heat Moulding
Heat moulding skates is essential to making a skate fit properly and make the skates more comfortable from the beginning for the skater. Most modern skates are constructed using thermoformable materials and are intended to be heat moulded to help dial in your perfect fit. The ideal way of heat moulding boots is to heat them in a skate oven in store.
Heat moulding at home is not recommended and will void the warranty.How much does heat moulding skates cost?
As part of our fitting service, the first heat moulding will be offered free of charge. The charge to heat mould skates not purchased from Puck Stop will be £20.
Please note that not all boots are heat mouldable. Ask our staff for advice.
We always recommend resting the boots for 24hrs before using the skates again.
Boot Stretching and/or Punching
Sometimes, even after heat moulding, some boots may still cause discomfort in certain areas as all feet are unique.
We can help remedy this by offering a general stretching or a more local punching of the boot. Come to store and speak to our trained staff and they will be able to advise on the best way to remedy the issue.Stretching will take some time and will require you leaving the skates with us for a few days.
Punching can be done while you wait.
