Customer reviews for Bont Vaypor Premium Road Shoe

Bont Vaypor Premium Road Shoe

The Bont cycling shoes are the most heat moldable shoe on the market today. To mold your shoes, remove any cleats, laces or cleat mounting screws and innersole before molding. Failure to remove the innersole can result in it becoming deformed by the heat. Pre heat the oven to 70C/160F. Place the shoe in the oven for 20 minutes. Higher temperatures will void your warranty and may damage your boot. Caution: Do not place your feet in the hot shoes or you may burn your feet. Let them cool a little and test the shoe temperature with your hand before placing your feet in the shoes. Tighten the straps and allow to cool. If you have any lumps or bunions on your feet or if there are any areas causing discomfort, while the shoe is hot you can use the round end of a screwdriver to press out any part of the boot. You can heat mold the shoes as many times as you like.

An excellent cycling shoe

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Can a cycling shoe be described as beautiful? Too right they can, these beauties are stored alongside my jimmy choo's, but the upside is that they get far more use than the Jimmy's. incredibly light weight and stiff as a plank, giving you the illusion your feet are part of the pedal. I can't imagine there's any loss of power transmission from your hard working body to the bike using these shoes as the interface. Love them. Love them. LOVE them

Great ergonomic concept but...

Posted05 April 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable
Cons: Uncomfortable
These shoes are the only ones on the market that are shaped like feet. That is, they do not taper to a point at the end. This is a great step forward. The heat moulding is also an excellent idea and works well in practice. Sizing is regular: I used 44 Northwave and the 44 Bonts were spot on. BUT... the threaded nuts that your cleats screw into are pressed into the sole from the inside. These terminate in small raised metal flanges on the inside that are then covered by a (approx.) 3mm memory foam insole. The problem was that I could feel the 3 metal inserts right under the ball of my foot, especially when out of the saddle, and this caused discomfort. I'm really disappointed that all of Bont's advanced features have been let down by the cleat solution which seems like an afterthought. I returned the shoes for a full refund which was dealt with very quickly by Evans. Dear Bont, please change this feature so that I can wear your shoes!

i was a little in doubt if the shoes could match the pricetag attached, my doubts were soon removed, these shoes are incredible, stiff, light, perfectly fitted to every foot type, i wont be buying another brand from now on. I can see why they are the show of choice for bradley wiggins!!!!
