Somebody recently ran into my old vapours at a crossroads. It snapped the strap straight off the left shoe. I was gutted as they are the most comfortable cycling shoes I’ve ever owned. So I was stoked to find this replacement buckle set and to get my old shoes back up and running again. Easy to fit and came with some spare bolts too.
Although the design of the buckle and ladder has changed slightly since 2015, the replacement kit still worked perfectly, and I could keep using my shoes.
I ordered these buckles in the hopes that they would replace a broken buckle on some Specialized MTB shoes as they no longer offer replacements. They worked! Had to carve a little bit on the shoe but was able to make it fit. The new buckle is much more robust than the original and expect it will hold up well. If you try this at home, make sure that the ladder width on the shoe is 15mm as some on Specialized shoes are 13mm. Thanks, Bont!
Replacement for the damage buckle on my shoe. slow shipping by my standards for something that was needed but it is an easy replacement Fit and operated just like the old ones.
I took a small climbing a hill after stopping and picking up a nail on pavement. When clipping in, I fell and landed on Bont shoe hard. My buckle broke! The replacement buckle fit perfectly and shoes still spinning.
Be advised all measurements shown in the size charts above are listed in millimetres and refer to all current models purchased after 2015.
NEW SIZING METHOD
To find your Bont Cycling shoe size, download and print our all-new sizing page in A4 or Letter and follow the instructions exactly as listed. Mark with a straight edge your longest toe and widest part of your foot. Double check the length and width with a ruler to confirm your measurements. Be advised, this is a newly developed sizing page so please send any feedback to our team by clicking the red 'speech bubble' in the corner of the page.
To find your size, place a piece of paper on a flat surface and place it directly up against a wall. Stand on the paper and ensure you have a 1mm gap between your heel and the wall. Plant your foot firmly on the ground and slowly roll your weight forward and onto the forefoot. For the most effective longest toe measurement, your heel should lift off the ground slight. Look down and take the measurement from the wall edge of the paper to your longest toe. Record the length. With your foot still in place, mark the widest points of the inner and outer edges of your feet. Measure the width across the widest part of your foot and record the number in millimeters. Repeat this step for both feet.
Once the measurements have been taken, use the Foot Length Range on the size chart to find your size. The Last Length measurements shown on the chart are the exact length of the last that we use to build the shoes. This correlates to the precise internal measurement of the shoe.
Following selection of your size in EU or USA, move downward to select the most appropriate width. We recommend adding 1mm to find the most appropriate width. For example, you are looking at a Vaypor S and have determined your best shoe size is 45 and your feet measure 105mm (left) and 107mm (right) wide, with an additional 1mm added, you would still fit within the Standard Range. If your feet measure wide than 109/110mm (size 45/10.5) you should consider Wide fit.
NOTE: The stated size width range does not reflect the actual width of the shoe. Bont Cycling shoes are designed with structural support throughout the entire length including the forefoot and as such, the measured shoe width is designed to appropriately support the foot within the shoe. The width of the shoe will almost always be narrower than your foot which is intentional in order to provide the necessary support.
Please also keep in mind Bont Cycling shoes are designed around an anatomically correct last suitable for cycling however, this does not mean they are built in the 'bare foot' running shoe style.
