I was in a shop and tried on a pair of Grafs that were on sale. Didn't fit too bad but not perfectly. The salesman offered to heat mould them to my feet to get an idea what they would feel like. He was insistent that it would be no problem and they could be done over and over, indefinitely. I declined as I was not ready to buy them at that time. I suspected he was wrong and that it could effect the skate for someone else, though I had no idea to what degree. Some must be more resilient than others to the process.
