Interesting, I am just not going to do it just in case something happens (the insole melts or something), its too expensive to risk it.
Yeah bring them in, have the guy bake them without any insoles in them, then ask him/her to put in SF immediately after they come out. Make sure the SF is trimmed for the skate.

There are glues in the SF b/w the foam bed and the plastic cup. You'd rather not heat that up.

As far as lacing with the newer (non leathr boots) I went with underlacing which was the recommendation for the newer skates(youtube it)

No real problems except intially I went too tight and got a nice missing path of skin.
