After messing around for a couple seasons with another brand that had redesigned its last, I returned to Bont. Even at this price point, the sole is still stiffer and thinner than shoes costing twice as much. And you get the same heat molding and anatomic last as the more expensive models. With aftermarket insoles, these are the best cycling shoes I've worn in 50 years.
The Bont Cycling Riot+, the world's first carbon composite and heat moldable cycling shoe designed for road cycling and priced for the masses, now available with proven BOA Performance Fit System.
The Riot+ combines Bont Cycling's professional-series technical features including anatomical power transfer platform for greater efficiency, replaceable sole guards, unique carbon composite shaping, competition grade materials and BOA Performance Fit System to create the most technically-advanced entry-level road shoe available.

Great style and a size that fits And affordable. Thanks
Extremely ergonomic shoes similar due to a toe box similar to the Altra's I use for running. The arches were a bit high as-received, but became a perfect fit after the straight-forward sole molding. Look stylish, and didn't break the bank.
Great vibrant colors. Quality material and build. Absolutely love the shoes.
These shoes are designed to feel great all ride long! Everything about them feels natural when clipped in the pedals
This has been the most comfortable shoe I've woren in 15 years.
I purchased the riot+ on a large recommendation from a cycling community on Facebook but being in Canada I had to find them online. Bont was selling them for the same price as one of my online suppliers but shipping was lengthy and costly. A rep got in touch with me and made it so I didn’t wait long and made the shipping much more affordable. It’s taken three mouldings and I ditched the pathetic excuse for an insole away and replaced with my own heat mouldable insoles and now have created the most invisible feeling of a cycling shoe. I love my bonts and would definitely buy another pair but come on bont the riot+‘a need a two way boa dial not one way. The one way dial and shout insole is why I can only give the riot+‘a a 4 star ⭐️ review.
The shoes are very comfortable, the sole are stiff and I can't really feel the pressure contact point. The website measurement tool said I was a standard fit, however the shoes was too tight. I went for a wide and that was perfect. My only complain is your return policy, I contacted Bont and the advice I got was to try and sell the shoes. I did sell the shoes but at a greatly reduced price which meant I lost money. Maybe a return policy like rapha wouldn't go unnoticed.
My shoes arrived in a timely manner, they were exactly as ordered and have performed as promised. These are my second pair!

NEW SIZING METHOD
To find your Bont Cycling shoe size, download and print our all-new sizing page in A4 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.
