    Bont Riot MTB

    Posted by John on 21st Jan 2022

    I love my new Bonts! Nice and stiff. They fit great, although about a half size small, in my estimation. I usually take a 7 1/2 to an 8 US, and I had to order an 8.5 US. Anyway, I think my biggest wish would be that if a size didn't fit, there should be free returns if returning for a different size. Rapha did that for a pair of road shoes I purchased a few years back, and that really impressed me, customer service wise. I would recommend these shoes to anyone, especially if you find that your feet fall asleep in other shoes. I do not experience that anymore, with my new Bonts.

    These fit my wide toes

    Posted by Ryan on 7th Jan 2022

    I usually wear sandals and because of that my toes are in a more natural spread out position, especially my big toe. Due to this I have difficulty finding a shoe that doesn't squish my toes together and often have to go a size up, leaving a lot to be desired. These shoes in "Asian Fit" width fit me quite well. The heel is also fairly narrow compared to other shoes and fits good, although it could stand to be a bit narrower. I have replaced the original insole with a Specialized one to increase the arch support. My only slight complaint is the tongue is loose and needs to be pulled up before cinching up the shoe. Other than that the quality and build are excellent for the price.

    Very Dissapointed

    Posted by Roy Vandermaar on 30th Jul 2021

    Not happy I have to write this review, but I have not had a positive experience dealing with Bont Cycling. After going through the sizing exercise with the sales team and submitting traces of my foot, the shoes ended up being way too big. I expressed my interest in exchanging for the correct size and was told I would have to pay to return the items and then re-order. I went to the local courier and was told it would be $55 to ship the shoes back. I decided that was just way too much money as I had already spent a great deal on these shoes. After explaining this to customer service I was told "that is our policy" and there is no other option. I have ordered and exchanged shoes from multiple other companies and they always include a return slip. This makes sense. If a company wants to provide direct order service, they need to make it easy on the customer and these types of returns/exchanges need to be built into the business model. I would have been a loyal customer with repeat business for years to come, now instead, I will not support this brand and I certainly will not have anything positive to say about it. And I find it very strange that they would ask for my review when multiple staff members are aware of my bad experience.

    Great shoe that won’t break the bank!

    Posted by Benjamin Love on 7th Jul 2021

    As usual, a lot of shoe at a great price from Bont. Nice sized toe box for my hobbit feet, boa system and heat moldable. This time I decided not to heat mold as they’re perfect out of the box. Big thanks to the Bont team❤️

    Highly Recommend

    Posted by Steve Kimsey on 21st Jun 2021

    The other brand of shoes that I was using were high volume (HV), which meant the soles were normal shoe width with extra material added to the upper.... so my wide feet were still squished. My other shoes were probably great for someone with fat narrow feet, but not wide feet. The Bont Riot MTB soles are actually wide and accomadate my wide feet. I usually wear a 45 size shoe and the size 45 Bont shoe fit perfectly. Heat molding the Bont shoes was also very easy. I found a YouTube video and followed the instructions, they fit like a glove and are half the weight of my other "HV" shoes that I was using. Highly Recommend!

    Wished I would have bought them sooner

    Posted by Rod Budnik on 17th Jun 2021

    At the price point, I'm not sure there is a better shoe out there for me. I have a wide forefoot and a narrow heel. Contemplated buying the wide, but the standard was wide enough. I used the sizing guide to accurately make my purchase. I love how stiff the sole is and the shoes is very comfortable from the first ride. Have a few hundred miles in them now. My advice - Don't wait. Buy them sooner than later.

    High arch -my wife eternal problem

    Posted by Edoardo on 24th Jan 2021

    I write this review based on my wife experienced. She is fighting since ever to find a comfortable pair of shoes for gravel and road. To have a access to the shoes she has to buy a bigger size that, after are not really working fine. For Xmas I bought for her 2 pair of shoes (wide fit) from Bont. Both shoes are not perfect but the best one that she got (till now). And believe me, she tried a lot of brand (Sidi, Nordica, Lake, Shimano, Diadora, Nike, etc.) and the best one are Bont followed by Diadora (also wide fit version). Since is now comfortable with the size and fitting she is thinking to buy an higher level (for road) or trying the custom offered by Bont (really a plus!).

    Huge improvement over original Riot !!!

    Posted by Scott on 13th Jan 2021

    I had the original Riots they were terrible. These shoes are nice, I really am liking them. So many improvements. Nice and stiff, super comfortable. Pedaling feels ultra solid. Large amount of tread on the shoes gives confidence when needing to walk or put a foot down. Not quite 5 stars but close. Fit on upper strap with boa could be better and I lost the toe spike screws on the first ride.
