Pros Beautiful shoes Well built Available in a variety of widths Friendly and responsive customer service Cons I did full measurements per the instructions and they don’t and won’t fit No amount of manipulation via the heating method will make a difference Detail Experienced 35 year plus road rider Experience with race shoes from Shimano, Sidi, Carnac etc I have one foot slightly wider and larger than the other. I followed the Bont instructions and measured my feet which confirmed this. I ordered as such (not returnable since they are two different sizes) The shoes do not have enough space for my arches. As such they’re painful to wear. No amount of heating can change this. I’ve never had this issue with off-the-shelf shoes from other manufacturers. I simply can’t wear them and I’m out $500. Customer service has offered me a modest discount on a custom pair but I’m not looking to spend more $$$$. I’m going back to Shimano
I’ve been a recreational racer for about 12 years and these are the first shoes that I’ve owned that I feel fully connected to my pedals! From the first pedal stroke I just felt more connected to my bike. The sole of the shoe is stiff and comfortable (I did heat the shoes up and did a custom fit). The boa connectors are as expected but what I really liked was how the top of the shoe wrapped around and provided sturdy contact around the foot. Fit wise I have a very wide foot and the wide version fit perfectly. Highly recommend measuring your foot per the procedure. The size that I ordered was a whole size larger than other shoes. Note: the insoles were very thin and didn’t have the arch support that I need/like; I immediately swapped them out. Great 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.
