This was my fourth pair of Bont shoes and my second pair of Helix. I do like Bont shoes. I was drawn to these shoes because of the wide toe box. You must be careful with the fit since the sole is cupped; if too small your feet will hit carbon instead of cloth or leather. Due to problems with my feet, I ordered a larger wider shoe than my first pair of Helix The toe box width and length were great but the heel box was narrow. There was a lot of pressure on my instep such that I couldn’t wear the shoes longer than an hour. I did not have this problem with my first pair of Helix. I was hoping they would break in but that didn’t happen. I tried to return them for another pair but even though I had only worn these indoors and walked on carpet, Bont would not replace the shoes since I was beyond the return period. My advice, try on the Bonts. If the fit is great, keep them. If you have any questions about the fit, return them. There is no forgiveness in the fit of these shoes.

It is light, stiff and fast shoes. But, fitting is slightly bud. I feel pressure from BOA cable guide pipe. It is the defect of this wonderful shoes.
this shoe is number 5 in my collection of Bont shoes. Outstanding shoe. 5 star .
Very comfortable and stiff. The toe box is great for wide feet.
I have put in a lot of miles on Bont road shoes. I started with the Vaypor, then the Vaypor+, and now I'm in the Helix. All have been excellent. Comfortable, stiff, light, and durable. Superbly designed and crafted.
I have been in the industry for over 30yrs and have been sponsored by many shoe companies. I have found that for someone wearing a size 15 EU 50 BONT SHOES Have been outstanding in size, fit , comfort and weight. I have truly enjoyed their shoe so much I my last order was for a purchase of 7 custom made shoes. Thanks BONT LOVE THE SHOES!!!

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.
