Postby sumgy » Thu Sep 19, 2013 8:51 am

Worn about 5 times for short rides.
Basically they just dont work with my feet and I am going back to Gaerne or Sidi.
Pick up at Nundah or Albany Creek or else shipping anywhere at your cost.

I normally wear a size 45 Sidi ... I'm guessing these won't fit me

I am a 46 Sidi and a 45 Gaerne, but the Bont sizing chart said I was a 45 so went with that.
Maybe I should have gone with the 46.

I'm a 45 sidi ergo 3 and do a 45 bont vaypour. They stung for about a month, super tight, but now feel fine. I haven't bothered baking mine.

Interesting.
Mine feel tight across, and under the forefoot.
Maybe I am being premature. :?

Give them a little. They give a little.

I loved my sidis, and found the bont's crazy tight to begin with, but over time the leather has given and I now find these fit nicely. Stiff as fugg too!

To be honest, this is another problem I am having.
Because they have such thin soles (and insoles), I am having issues with hot foot from my Speedplay cleats.
Never had that problem with Sidi or Gaerne.

My Bont A3s fit perfectly once cooked. I have a narrow, European-fit foot.

I've had them for 2 years and never had problems with hot feet, despite the apparent lack of ventilation. However, I need shoe covers in cool/cold weather or my feet freeze and I don't normally suffer from cold extremities.
It’s more like our thoughts are thinking us than we are thinking them.

I'm 45 sidi and 45 bont.
I cooked mine 3 times to get it right, they feel super tight at first but you get used to it.
The thing I learnt is the upper is far more supportive, so unlike my sidi I just push the strap through the buckle rather than ratchet it tight, if I crank them up like you do with sidi then say good bye blood flow.
I use speed play with no hot spots but I ditched the !! BAN ME NOW FOR SWEARING !! inners and got heat moldable foot beds.
In my sidi I used blue s works ones.

Thanks for all of the responses.
I think I am going to pull these from the market and give them a few more rides with my old innersoles (if I can get them to fit).
Might re-mold them too.

I recommend you pull them and give them sone more molding and breaking in time.

So light

So stiff

I already have a pair of a1s but was considering buying yours as a second pair

Bumping.
For all the positive talk I have seen on the Bont Vaypor, I cannot believe that someone has not at least made an offer.

Maybe coz it is cheaper to buy the direct from Evans at $232.00.

Thanks for your feedback.
I said I will consider offers.
And these shoes are here in Australia rather than having to wait a week for them to come from Evans.
