Getting the right fit is essential for comfort and performance. You have heard terms like 'custom fit' but what do they mean? Most manufacturers define custom fit as a shoe with a small amount of mouldability in the upper. Some also have a very small degree of heat mouldability in the base. When Bont say this shoe is heat mouldable, they really mean it. You can mould the sub-9 in any home oven and the amount of mouldability is outrageous. If a shoe doesn't fit properly, you can't train or race at your optimum. The Bont Sub-9 Tri Shoe has a two piece tongue that opens the shoe right up making it very easy for you to slip your foot in for a fast transition. Add to that, Bont's' patent pending built in shoe horn lets you put your shoe on with just one finger. This shoe also has a shoe protector for the heel which protects the shoe during the transition.
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.
