Bont shoes. Never heard of them? Hmmm, likely because they are big in track cycling and such. But they make a few dandy mountain bike shoes. The important thing is that they are manufactured with a molded carbon last that uses 2000 measuring points vs the 7 measuring points used by many shoe manufacturers. Even better, the shoe can be heat molded to fit your foot. And here's the kicker: unlike other heat molded options, these shoes can be molded multiple times. Live in a cold place and need more volume for thicker socks come winter? Simply re-mold the shoes with the appropriate socks on. Need a snugger fit again come spring? Re-heat and re-mold once again. These are aimed more at the XC and XC race crowd, but the entry level shoe on the left, the Riot, comes in at $160 USD, while the top end Vaypors on the right will set you back $390 USD. The mid range shoe, the Vapor, is $299 USD. Not cheap, but they do offer a fantastic fit that is designed to keep the pedal spindle squarely beneath the knee for greater ergonomics and more efficient power to the pedals.
