I was only just recently introduced to Bont cycling shoes by a friend in Arizona, USA. The Bont fit is far and away the best fit I have ever experienced in a cycling shoe in over 40+ years of cycling and a whole lot of miles (over 15,000 miles & 875,000 vertical feet of climbing last year alone). The Bont stiff molded carbon sole feels as if the entire sole, not just the portion right under the cleat spreads the pedal pressure over the entire length of the foot This helps me pedal powerfully and smoothly throughout my pedal stroke. I was so impressed with the Bont shoe that I quickly ordered two more pairs. I recommend Bont cycling shoes highly. Please note, I did have to size up to a larger size compared to my Shimano, Scott, Louis Garneau, and Fizik shoes.
