I used Bont's sizing template to get an accurate size. Even though I'm always a 44 in cycling shoes, Bont's representative looked at my template and suggested a size 43. So I ordered the Riot in that size and paid for the shipping. Unfortunately, the 43 was much too small. They did refund me the purchase price, but I had to pay to ship the shoes back, and then I had to pay again to ship the size 44 to my house. So that's 3x shipping costs for one pair of shoes where they got the size wrong. I'm disappointed and probably will not order Bonts again because of this poor customer service issue.

First off the whiteness of these shoes is amazing and super easy to clean . I use theses shoes for gravel racing so clean up is great . The shoes are super comfortable right out of the box . I also have to Bont vaypor s and took me 3 times in the oven to get perfect. The shoes are really stiff which I love . I can honestly say that if they put the double boa system on these shoes they could be the best shoe on the market .
I recently purchased a pair of Bont Riot+. At first the shoes felt very uncomfortable. However, after heat molding them for 10 times. Yes 10 times. They feel like they were custom made for me. I think the whole heat molding requires some experience and a error and trial process. But once you have dialed in you are right on. I don’t blame the heat molding as the sole have a different shape and I was not used to it. Additionally customer service was amazing. I exchanged many emails with Jessica the sales rep and she alway answered and was very helpful.
I absolutely love Bont Shoes. I just purchased my 2nd pair. The fit is perfect. I'm fussy about all kinds of shoes I buy. My feet get sore easily. The great thing about Bont is I can mold them to my feet. And guess what? I NEVER get sore feet with them.

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.
