Re: Flexible Base Shoe

Try soaking it yourself and bending it. Usually this is done with a steamer and then slowly bending the radius as you tack it in place. But you might be able to soak it in your tub overnight and then tacking it in place.

Re: Flexible Base Shoe

Search under commercial for hospitals, vets and such, they use this for sanitary reasons.

If you want to go steam bent, let me know. It's pretty expensive though.

Re: Flexible Base Shoe

We use Stock Building Supply in South FL. They carry it. Do some research. Steaming is a pain.
