                  Wide not wide

                  Posted by Rebecca on 26th Mar 2022

                  I ordered these because someone I know has an older version and they are almost the only shoes that come in wide. I got them and molded them 2 times. They are not wide, they are actually more narrow than my normal width shimano shoes. In addition the laces are really hard to release on one side. Unfortunately, these shoes are also prohibitively expensive to send back, so now I am stuck with them.

                  Most comfortable cycling shoes

                  Posted by JK on 27th Dec 2021

                  I own both the Riot+ and Riot+ MTB in 40.5 wide fit. With Sole Performance thin cork heat moldable insoles, these are the most comfortable cycling shoes I have ever worn. Both are true to size for my moderately wide feet and fit extremely well after heat molding with the cork insole, which is thicker and provides far more support than the included insole (more below). The shoes are surprisingly cool for being non-mesh, and the velcro and BOA closures work well for dialing in the fit. It would be nice to have a slightly wider tongue and for the BOA closure to allow loosening in increments instead of all-or-none, but it takes only a few extra moments to get things dialed in before jumping on the bike. For both pairs of shoes, I used the original insole as a template for trimming the cork insole then substituted the cork for the original and followed the Bont instructions to heat mold the shoes. Afterwards, I followed the Sole instructions to heat mold the cork insoles inside the Riot+ shoes. I wore Sidi for years, and while they were good, the Riot+ shoes with heat molding, combined with cork insoles, are a whole other level of fit and comfort. I already have and will continue to recommend these shoes to friends.

                  No bakery still

                  It's my first pair of road shoes. I've used them for 3 months without putting them in the oven. So far, the only discomfort I had was when I was walking down the stairs. I'll bake them do it. Otherwise, I'm doubtful about the kind-of lateral positioning of the BOA. It seems to me like a central one would offers more accuracy. Not that it's been a problem, I'm just wondering if it's an optimal usage of this technology. Never had any problem with breathability, comfort or anything while biking.

                  not wide enough

                  Posted by Sara Adams on 28th Jul 2021

                  After going through the process of tracing (and retracing) my feet and getting a recommendation from a Bont representative, I have to limit my rides to 45 minutes or less because that's how long before my foot pain is too excruciating to tolerate anymore. And this is only wearing the few pairs of socks that I can squeeze into the shoes. At this price point and given the amount of time I spent before purchase, I had hoped for better.

                  No bom caminho... on the right track...

                  Posted by JBrites on 29th Sep 2020

                  Em geral gosto de tudo embora ainda não tenha conseguido molda-los bem aos meus pés. Penso que poderiam e deviam ser mais ventilados pois é fácil aquecer os pés mas ao contrário não é possível. Também acho que faltam meios tamanhos , no meu caso um EU 43 1/2 , faz toda a diferença.Também, não sei porque razão não consigo que os cleats fiquem no sítio que preciso ,não consigo alinhar a linha dos metatarsos com o centro dos cleats ... In general I like everything, although I have not managed to mold them well at my feet. I think that they could and should be more ventilated as it is easy to warm your feet but on the contrary it is not possible. I also think that half sizes are missing, in my case a EU 43 1/2, it makes all the difference. Also, I don't know why I can't get the cleats to stay where I need to, I can't align the metatarsal line with the center of cleats ...

                  Sore feet

                  Posted by D L on 28th Sep 2020

                  The lasts on these shoes are turned up along the perimeter. Really painful after a while. My sizing appears to be correct and I tried remolding the shoes in my oven using the instructions. Really just too painful to wear. Got a replacement pair but these were equally painful. I am sticking with Lake Shoes.

                  Comfort is a revelation

                  Posted by Max Clayton-Smith on 25th Apr 2020

                  The main thing about these is I cannot believe how comfortable they are. They look pretty good (pearl/black/blue) and don't weigh too much. The power transfer seems spread much more evenly across much more of the foot than other shoes I've used. The moulding was easy ~30mins (youtube it) and the resulting fit was fantastic. Generally I have been used to shoes only becoming comfortable once I have lost all feeling in my feet. These have a curious sensation of feeling like slippers whilst also being very stiff. I will be buying an mtb pair for the commuter.
