I owned the Bont RIOT MTB and thought it was a great shoe. The Vapor G is on a whole other level. The leather finish is beautiful and slowly shapes to your foot. The carbon base makes an powerful feel on the pedals. And the two Boa clasps seem perfectly designed to get this shoe fit perfect to ride. I have wide feet and neuralgia, so I needed a good wide shoe. This is the best I have tried. I did find going a size up was necessary.
