Couldn’t be happier. Fit right out of the box. No need for me to mold them. Wide toe box feels stable. I was afraid it would feel too loose and not secure. However that is not the case. Heel cup is also secure without pinching. Beautifully put together. Definitely worth the investment.

I like these shoes a lot and wear wide shoes in other brands. In this brand It may take an extra wide to be comfortable, but I didn't figure this out for a few hours on my trainer with these shoes. So now I am left with the choice of eating the cost of $370+ dollar shoes and ordering another pair, or just living with them not being comfortable for long stretches. May just switch brands to ones with a better return policy.....
The picture of the bottom of shoe are inaccurate on 4 hole version. The base where speed play pedal attaches is completely flat, which seems like a good thing except you feel the pedal through the cleat and shoe creating pain. Speedplay makes a baseplate but is paper thin and doesn't help. Bont told me too bad. Can't return. I have had the shoes for months and can't find a solution. I have a pair of Vaypors which I love but these are unacceptable.
Although I’ve only been on a few rides with my new Bonts (mainly due to weather), these shoes are the bomb! Very stiff, very comfortable, with plenty of room in the toe box for my wide feet. Love the dual Boas! Had my LBS install the cleats and even he was impressed with the stiffness and overall quality. Would highly recommend!
Initially, I couldn’t manage to insert my foot in as I would normally do for my previous shoes, i.e. to put my foot straight in. Due to its design, I had to rotate my foot for about 45° to comfortably fit in. In my case (46-Wide), the fit is tight, that is there are about 4-5mm of room at the top. However, the shoes are wide enough so that my toes face straight ahead. Once attached, my foot doesn’t move at all. The heat molding made the shoe more confortable. It’s very impressive!
If you have wide feet and don't want to spend a ton on custom shoes, the Vaypor S in wide fit may be the answer. I need a wide shoe for my bunions and this shoe does the trick. The stiff sole allows for direct power transfer and the boa enclosure system is amazing. I experienced little to no break-in period. I like these shoes so much, I've ordered additional pairs and will be ordering a mountain bike version soon!
Comfortable shoes I was able to get wide gives me roomy toe box. They are stif and have good power transfer. The only thing I don’t like is wrap over closure. I have to really open the shoe up to get my foot in and make sure the inner flap lays flat. They do adjust nicely and stay in place.
I’ve worn SWorks and S Phyres for years. My Vaypor S in wide are by far the best shoes I ever owned.
Be advised all measurements shown in the size charts above are listed in millimetres and refer to all current models purchased after 2015.
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.
