Good enough

4

Heat molding really helps it fit well, but it only works at the bottom of the shoes. Some tightness around the ankle opening isn't able to be molded so it can cause blisters if I spend too much time riding the mountain bikes shoes. Two issues with the super stiff tub, its shape traps water when it's raining, so you're pedaling in a small pool of water. It's also possibly too stiff, as spending a lot of time descending on rough chip seal roads can lead to too much road buzz transferring into your feet.

Best

This is my second pair of Bont shoes and I only wish I had switched earlier in my cycling journey. These shoes look a little different but different is good. Nothing feels or rides like molded shoes in my opinion.

Finally an anatomically designed shoe

5

As someone with flat feet and a somewhat wider forefoot, I've always struggled finding shoes that fit my feet amongst all the euro shaped footwear. Admittedly, I've had to heat mold these far more times than expected, however they're now at a point where they are the shape of my foot, no numbness, and have retained incredible stiffness. Double check the size wizard on Bont's website and measure a few times, this worked for me. I normally wear a 45-45.5 and ended up in a 46 due to the size chart and am happy with this.

Bont Vapor S

I recently bought these shoes and became a bit disappointed with the way they fit after my first ride with them. On the outer side, there's an attachment for the BOA system which digs into the side of your foot, very uncomfortable. I'll try and give some time to see if it's a matter of getting used to them, will update the review in the future.

Ready for Prime Time

Review after 450 miles / 25 hours in the shoe: Quality is first-rate. The very thin footbed insoles could be better. I replaced them with Superfeet green high profile / high volume insoles, which work well since I ordered a Euro size larger than I normally wear. I like Specialized Body Geometry insoles best, but they don't have the SilvaDure anti-bacterial treatment of the Shimano S-Phyres. Bont Vapor S carbon sole is miles better than my three other road shoes, Sidi, Specialized S-Works, and Shimano S-Phyre. Bont's sole wraps up around the outside of my foot. Then the upper is glued over the outside of the sole. The result is that the shoe feels absolutely solid, with the foot and shoe seeming as one force on the pedal. They absolutely have the best power transfer of all my road shoes. They don't have as much ventilation at my S-Works or S-Phyres. I'll see how they do when summer rolls back around. I think Bont could have put more ventilation holes in the uppers.

Excellent shoes

5

Shoes are very stiff with great power transfer. Double BOA allow for precision adjustment with plenty of room in the toebox. I went to the Bont website and used the size wizard, ordered the recommended size, and they fit perfectly. Very happy with them.

Bad design

3

Fundamental design fault, in that the top boa pulls from the anchor below the ankle bone towards the big toe. The tension is not applied over the top of the foot as you would expect. This may be less of an issue with "high" feet, but while two insoles helps a bit, they make everything else too tight. In effect, the top boa duplicates much of the tension of the bottom boa. My feet are 255mm (93/96mm wide) and I have a size 42. I suspect a 41 would be too tight in the toe. The heat moulding works for the heal cup, but don't expect much adjustment elsewhere. The carbon surrounding your foot is very unforgiving, so the fit has to give enough space. I use them for short rides, done up tight. Not so good for long rides where comfort is more important. They look good though. Style over function.

Bont Vaypor S

I ended up ordering 2 pair of 1/2 size different. I ended up with the half size smaller. The Bont's are awesome. Great fit with the heat molding. It did take a couple of tries in the oven to get the fit right but they are like a glove now. Super stiff but comfortable. I highly recommended them.

Stiff and fast

5

Package arrived in time, amazing quality compared to regular brand found in lbs. Fit amazing and if anything feels more tight, just heat them. I tried a few shoes and with this amazing support (your feet are wrapped by the shoe) you can concentrate on pushing on those pedals. I recommand if medium or entry level shoes doesn't fit you
