These are truly comfortable and a perfect fit for me. They were recommended by the person who fit me on my bike and he was 100% correct. Great shoe!
Great shoe with excellent performance

This shoe is a tremendous value. It's my second pair of Bonts and fits GREAT (thank you heat-moldable sole). Very light, SUPER STIFF means lots of power transfer with minimal loss. I really like the ventilation in this shoe too.
I’m not sure

It is hard to attribute causation, so I’m not sure if the shoes or new cleats are a problem. I like the shoes (other than they had no insole or arch support) but that may be the trade-off for the price. The adjustment slot for the cleats doesn’t seem to go as far towards the toe as I would like so that is like raising the saddle and reduces calf use. Maybe that is the cause of my new knee pain, but maybe I have to go in for a bike and cleat refit - about the same price as shoes \_(ツ)_/¯
I'm back in the saddle

I quit riding 15 years ago because I couldn't find a shoe to fit my bunions. Enter Bond Cycling. Now I'm back on the Bianchi that had been gathering dust in the garage. Happy days.
Loved the company and the idea behind the shoes

But I could not love the shoe. I went through the fitting process, followed the heating instructions to a T, and the Bont team helped every step of the way.
However, the shoes just did not fit and did not deliver on the toebox comfort.
Comfy but a bit loose

Shoes are big improvement in comfort and fit relative to old carbon shimanos. However, they’re not as responsive since uppers are thinner, looser and only have 2 straps instead of 3. But this shoe is for comfort, not performance. My sneaker size is 13D, so I got 50W with extra sole inserts. Used shoes for 10 rides, and, overall , I’m satisfied with these shoes.
Wife Loves These Shoes

I bought these shoes for my wife. Her previous shoes were causing pain as they were too narrow. We picked the wide version of the BONT Riot+ and they fit her perfectly. No more pain or discomfort. They are stiff, yet comfortable, and a great looking shoe!

Love the shoe, this is my third pair. Has gotten better over the years. Just wish there was a little padding under the eyelet for the velcro strap.

I thought it wasn't going to fit at first, but after a few weeks of useing it, it loosened a little bit. Very good quality! Worth the steep price :)

Foot Length Range
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.
