hard to gauge fit without moulding
You can obviously mould these shoes, but I found the shoe box too shallow and wasn't convinced there would be enough excess material to increase its height and make them comfortable. I don't have big toes either. So it became a decision to return or a £160 experiment.

Extremely stiff,comfortable and they look good too
These shoes are unbeatable on stiffness. The fit us so snug you needent even bother would them but if you do it just gets better. I find them great for tt's in particular because you can tighten them to the very last(wouldn't reccomend doing it for long rides do)so that your foot basivally becomes part of the bike allowing you to have a perfect pedal stroke.I have the white ones and they are really nice looking I would 100% recvomend them to anyone.

Best shoes bar none.
I've been riding for close to 20 years and these are by far the best shoes I've used for a mile. Super comfortable. Well made. Stiff sole. Easy to put on and take off. Amazing price when compared to other high end shoes.

Great fit, stiff and comfy
I would recommend this to your all who has wider feet like me. I've got Shimano/Gaerne/Fizik road shoes before, nothing could compare with my bont vaypor s. The shoe itself became more fit after heat molding. Highly recommended!

Comfy, light, stiff
These shoes are the full package! they have the stiffest sole of any shoe in this price range i have tried and remain very light. The boas work brilliantly. The wider Bont footbed is fantastic giving a comfy shoe i can wear all day, even on the very long rides. I didn't notice much difference after heatmoulding, but may be just me. Hands down, the best shoe i have bought!

Simply the best
I already own a pair of Vapor+ shoes which i absolutely love, so i thought i'd invest in a pair Vaypor S. They are even better, stiffness is superb, comfort is superb straight out of the box, there is a bit more compression on the front of the foot which i like a lot. The Boa dials are easy to use with the added bonus of loosening on the move should you need to. I love the look of Bont shoes, so for me these are an all round winner. The toe box isn't as roomy as the Vapor+ but they are still comfortable with no pinching.

excellent fit, confort and breathable
this is now my favorite pair of shoes, the most comfortable I ever tried (shoes i owned: sidi, diadora, specialized, mavic). tried on a ride, adjusted the fit with the oven molding procedure, now they are perfect. very good materials and quality.

Great pair of shoes. Wider than my previous pair of Sidi's and extremely comfortable.
Easy to adjust on the bike.

Best performance In my experience
At first, selection by design and name value.
But now, all of thoughts were changed.
It helps me not only better performance but also better comfortable.
It is the best item in 2016 at cycle shoes, I think.

This shoes use ip-1 Boa dial
that is very comfortable
It can be fine-tuned by reverse-rotating differently from Boa dial of previous.
And Bont's Unique thermoforming gave me completely solve that my toe pain.
that's really good!

Excellent shoe, well worth the money.
Very comfortable, stiff and look good, really love the boa style system on these, much easier to remove versus my previous S-Works, I just hope that these last longer also.

Bit of a faff getting it to fit correctly and a bit of a worry when you shove it in the oven however if they survive they do turn out to be very comfortable for long rides. Not too warm for winter riding but not really designed for that so not a negative really but bear this in mind if buying as a year round shoe

Good shoe although pure race shoe you don't
Excellent shoe and fit but due to the nature of the shoe and design you don't want to walk on these very far as the carbon sole easily scratched , not a shoe for your coffee shop outing.but if your serious rider than one of the best.

I just want this shoe to work for me :-(
Unfortunately it saddens me to say that this shoe just didn't work for me. I love the theory behind the bont shoes and the aesthetic. I tried them in multiple sizes but couldn't get them to feel comfortable. The ultra stiffness is not for everyone. My brother who has the same size shoe as me said they were quite comfortable even with out heat moulding them. But I couldn't risk moulding them so I sent them back to wiggle.

I really love these new Bonts, and I've been riding them for a few months. As soon as I put them on I knew they were right for me (well my foot!). I don't like narrow tight fitting shoes, so these were great for me, my previous shoes were the first generation Bonts and I always liked them, hence why I went for the new Vaypor S's. I haven't put in an insole yet, I have a natural high ache anyway, but I may try one at some point, but so far so good!
Excellent performance shoe. Very stiff and the fitting system is just superb, very snug and precise. Love them!

I've raced with a lot of different racing shoes over the last 10 years and never had a shoe fit like this. Without even heat-molding them, they sit perfectly. Pure stiffness combined with an aerodynamic design which results in an overall great shoe!

Brilliant ... once you get used to them
After I took the plunge, I really wasn't convinced. There's no doubting how light and stiff they are but it felt like there was too much room in the shoe. I moulded them and still felt like it was a bit of a con. I read a review that said it took quite a few rides to adjust to the different style of shoe so I persisted. Not sure when the light dawned but after a while I realised that they are super comfortable and when you try your old shoes on, they feel hugely cramped and crush your feet.
I have seen the light ... I am a Bont worshipper!

timSome people either love or hate Bonts most love them !!
When you first try the Bonts on they feel different to normal cycle shoes especially if you have not the norm feet. This is due to the high carbon bathtub chassis of the shoe can sometimes make the arch uncomfortable.
9 times out of 10 this can be cured by heat moulding them in the oven. This has risks in that if you eat mould them they cannot be returned to wiggle should you change your mind, if you do take the plunge and carry on and buy them you will be left with a brilliant pair of shoes that are moulded to your feet. Its just you have to have guts putting a pair of £200+ shoes in the oven !!
BOA wire locking system is far superior to Sidi as is the hand crafted manufacturing process. A very very stylish pair of shoes

Comfortable shoe, great power transfer
Great shoe with excellent fit for me, (i was looking for wide fit shoes). Bont's 42.5 standard fit was ehat i was expected.
Super comfy at the toes with great power transfer.
Boa system operates pefectly
Very excited with this product

Look great quality but
I couldn't get these to work with my feet size 10 and a 45 was fine in terms of length but too narrow think I'm going to have to wait till the wide fitting comes out Boa fastening looks and works really well

I have the lesser Vaypor shoe from a couple of years ago - velcro strap at the front and ratchet down flap at the back. Over the time they have got increasingly noisy. The shiny exterior material which is also on the inner side of the folded strap and underside of the flap rubs and causes creaks / squeaks as it moves against itself. Other shoes of this kind use a low friction material (like a fleece or suede) to stop this.
