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.
The new gold standard in off-road cycling footwear, the Vaypor G delivers Bont Cycling's industry-leading carbon technology and biomechanically-superior fit in a form designed specifically but not limited to, gravel riding. Our latest flagship shoe sets new standards for those with a passion for dirt.
Tipping the scales at a competitive 310 grams per shoe, the true Bont Cycling difference comes via the fully heat-moldable chassis and industry-leading 3.6mm stack height. Think you’re close to the pedal spindle in your current shoes? The Bont Cycling Vaypor G will get you closer for a more efficient and stable ride. Experience performance and comfort without compromise like never before.

I am a touring cyclist and use my SPD compatible cycling shoes for long days of touring. This means hours of cycling for many days in a row and also hours walking around the small towns I visit on my rides. I tried many pairs of shoes before my local shop showed me the Bont shoes. I have wide feet and wear custom orthotics so I am not an easy fit but I fit in the standard width shoe perfectly. I did have to get my orthotics, however, customized for the shoe. I love my Bont Vaypor-G. They fit great, even with thick winter socks. While they have a carbon sole, they are still very comfortable for walking around for hours. The Boa closures are so easy to use enabling me to dial in just the right fit given the socks I'm wearing or how my feet might be swelling in the heat. I can't describe the burning pain I felt when I rode cross-country on another pair of shoes. So many times, I had to frantically pull the shoes off and dip my feet in a passing stream (seriously, no joke!). With the Bont, I hardly feel I am wearing anything different than my lightest casual shoes. Yet, these are high-performance super shoes with the strength I need to climb hills and the stability to pull up on the pedals. I have no problem wearing these shoes 8 hours a day for 8 days in a row. I just bought a second pair during the recent Black Friday sale.

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.
