                  Overall positive

                  So far the + is light, stiff, and efficient so no complaints there. The width is an upgrade an appreciated on hot days although it's nice on cooler days as well. The closure system has been robust, comfortable, and 'locked in' around the forefoot. My only complaint is I'd likely go a half size down based on the 'at home' measurements that landed me on the upper side of that choice--personally I'm finding the fit a bit long front to back but that's really just a sizing issue.

                  Big disapointment: Not very moldable and terrible for wide feet

                  Posted by Joshua Michael McGehee on 20th May 2021

                  I ordered a couple of different wide sizes to make sure I go the right one. These shoes don't really work as advertised, and have some general short-comings along with ones that are specific to me. General: 1.) Not very moldable. I maybe manages to finagle 5 mm out of them, hardly enough to make them fit my foot well, even with insoles. 2.) The boa system is awardly designed. The anchor point is not near the top of the enclosure, so tightening meant all of the material between the shoe opening and the anchor point bunched up. Specific to me: 1.) Not nearly wide enough. And not wide compared to other shoe brand. The wides I bought were narrow compared to non-wide Shimano and Specialized shoes in the same size. 2.) Not enough volume. Though the last might be considered wide, there's not nearly enough material in the shoe to fit a larger foot in. You had better have dainty bones. 8 out of 10 would not recommend.

                  Upgrade from old shoes!

                  Been wearing the shoes the past month. Well designed with good quality materials. "Cooking " in the oven was easy and gave a great fit. The surprise was that no matter how long I wear biking my feet are not sore or fatigued.

                  No more foot pain!

                  Great shoes! I've suffered for years from cycling shoes that are too narrow and cause quite a bit of foot pain and pressure points. Been riding for the last couple of months with the new shoes and have had zero foot pain or numbness. Really high quality shoes and the heat molding allowed me to get a perfect fit!

                  Wow, never going back to pointy-toe cycling shoes.

                  I got my new Bont Riot +s and love them! The toe box is the most natural feeling cycling shoe I’ve ever had. Never thought I’d say “natural” and “cycling shoe” in the same sentence lol. They are super light and the power transfer and response is incredible. The size calculator tool worked great and the craftsmanship and quality are excellent. Now I’m going to sell my pointy-toed MTB shoes and replace them with Riot + MTBs too. Just wanted to thank you for a great product and innovative design.

                  By Far Exceeds Expectations

                  Posted by Ricardo Gonzalez on 14th Jan 2021

                  Honestly did not expect at all how good this Bont Cycling shoes were going to be. I was nervous because I had them shipped to Mexico but it was not a problem and they arrived before schedule. Size-wise, I was using 44 and my Sidi’s were a bit loose, Bont’s 44 were perfect, not loose nor tight, really perfect. Just opening them I was amazed, even more when I heat molded them and took them out for my first ride. Truly fits like a sock. Don’t think I’ll ever change brand again.

                  I’ve been using my Riot for a month and I love them. The stay tight all the time.This is my first time using Bont and there is no regret . In addition to all, shipping to Mexico was really fast.

                  My first - and best - cycling shoes!

                  Posted by Sameera on 24th Dec 2020

                  I had read incredible reviews of Bont cycling shoes, especially for those looking for an anatomical and wider fit. After back and forth messages with Bont Customer Service (thank you Alex!), and sending in a scan of my foot chart, I decided to order the 42.5 Wide. When I initially tried it on, I thought it was too large, so I ordered the 42 regular to compare, and it was too tight fitting (not enough wiggle room for my toes). All of this to say: trust the size chart and customer service feedback! I've done a handful of rides with the shoes and they are light, comfortable, and my feet don't feel crammed after long rides. I am definitely a Bont fan and will be back in the future! Thank you for making the transition to cycling shoes as easy as possible!

                  Great for wide feet!

                  I've had a lot of trouble finding wide shoes that fit well in general, but especially for cycling. I'm so glad I finally decided to try Bont - my Riot+ Wide Fit (apparently Asian Fit is the same as Wide Fit for this model) fits so much better than other shoes I've tried. I've read mixed things about heat molding them online, but haven't needed to. After a couple rides, they seem to have naturally fit to my feet and I've had no issues. The bucket sole seems to fit so well that I don't even really need to tighten down the boa laces that much to get a great fit. For reference, I wear a 43 Wide Fit in the Riot+, a 9.5 wide in Saucony running shoes, a 9 in Converse Chucks, a 43 in older Pearl Izumi X-Alp's (which are too long), and tried a 43 Wide Shimano RC7 (had issues with the tongue cutting into the top of my foot).
