This is my 2nd pair of Bont shoes. The main reason I buy these is for the heat moldable soles. I wear a US14 extra wide shoe and have completely flat feet. Not easy to find any type of shoe that fits. Using the heat mold feature I'm not able to remove the arch completely but can get enough out to make them tolerable. Also able to push out the top of sole cup to provide enough room, Shoes are very light and wear well. Highly recommend.

Excellent fit! I molded them 2 times and they are now perfect to my foot
seriously, if you are on the fence at all, let me tell you to quit shopping. I bought a pair in all white and as soon as they were on my feet I knew I would be back for more. I just didn't realize that I would be coming back as soon as I did. A day or two after my first ride in the white version, I convinced my wife to let me buy a second pair. That was in June. My birthday is coming soon and I have asked for a third pair, and I know what I will be hoping for as a Christmas present. So far these shoes have logged around 500 miles in each pair. they are great. I've never been one to spend much on shoes, and I've never had more than one pair at a time, but I'm not taking any chances with supply problems. if I had the money, I'd buy 10 pairs.
I bought a Peloton that has helped me get in much better shape, yet felt as if the shoes provided were holding me back and causing pain. They do not make wide widths at all. After weeks of research, I bought these Bont shoes and I could not be happier! The comfort level and BOA lace structure have drastically improved my performance because I am no longer worried about foot pain and can focus on the actual workout. Styling is a bonus but the wide width availability, comfort, and BOA lace structure make these shoes a must!
I really tried to get these to fit, heated them 6-7 times..the carbon shell keeps jabbing me…the toe box is great, for long rides I can’t wear them, just not enough cushion around the outside of the foot
Purchased these and went through the sizing chart and did everything as stated. Shoes arrived and were way to big. Had to pay $35 in shipping to return and they refunded me the price minus the shipping to me so these shoes costed me $65 and I never got to use them and it’s certainly not worth the risk to throw away another $65. In a world of prime and just about everyone else standing by their product and free returns... I’d look elsewhere unfortunately..... not worth the risk.
Well, I was all excited to slip these long awaited new shoes on . Left foot felt fine a little tighter than I thought they were supposed to be. ( I had heard they were a little wider than normal European brands) Not as wide as I was lead to believe. The right foot was pure pain. Tight but there was a sever pain to the outside rear area of the shoe. Still can’t figure out why the hurt so badly poor molding perhaps. Still can’t wear them .... very disappointed!
Fantastic shoe for the value!!! Sub $200 for a shoe that looks and performs as a $400 cycling shoe.
This is my first pair of Bont's. I found Bont due to searching for wide fit shoes. I am normally a 10.5 (4E) for a comfortable fit. I ordered the Wide 46 and they were a bit snug initially. But after 2 heat moldings they fit great. Much more stiff than my old pair. I will definitely buy again when needed. I will probably invest in a higher grade pair because I now know they fit and are a great built shoe.

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.
