Hi,

These are literally (as of today), a week old. 140 miles on them (did an 80-miler over the weekend), and one heat molding. Pictures show condition. These may be too stiff for my funky feet needs.

Asking $275 shipped in the CONUS only. They were originally $399 plus tax to me. My loss, your gain.

Added: would be open to trading for a pair of Giro VR90 MTB lace-ups. Black, size 44.

Best pair of cycling shoes I have ever had. I now own 2 pair in different colors and will be ordering a 3rd color this summer. Someone will get a great pair of shoes for a good discount. Good luck with the sale!

How does the size compare with Shim/Sidi and specialized if possible. Or anything else for that matter.

Thanks.

I find them true to size. I've run all of those brands, save for Specialized, and current shoes for the past two years were Giro Factors in a 10. I'm technically a 9.5/9.75, but I like a bit of room for thicker socks and toe movement so I've always worn 44s across all the brands. I've not ridden in Specialized much, but from trying them on, I find the Specialized on the longer end —·according to them anyway, a 43.5 is a 10.25 and a 44 is a 10.6 (not sure why Specialized has sizing like that), but I've tried a 43.5/10.25 in those and they fit.

The Bonts have a nice roomy toe box, which is the beauty of these shoes. I love that part.

The stiffness for my lateral foot issues (an ongoing thing over the years), and the the of riding I tend to do (road, but we tend to go off road often for some adventuring) means that I'd rather not beat the carbon tub soles down and makes me realize I need to experiment further more with shoes. It's a pricey experiment, but how else are we to know right? Can't know until you try it, and by then, it's non-returnable.

It's a damn fine shoe and I'm bummed (shoes and saddles are like the never-ending quest), but hopefully they can go to someone at a great price.

The bont wizard size chart is crap and tends to be off for a lot of people. I found that recommending someone to get the same size they would in a specialized S works does the trick. They seem to run parallel in sizing with my experience.

Amended: also open to trading for a newish pair of Giro Empire VR90 MTB shoes, black, size 44.

PM sent.

Unfortunately according to Bont's sizing chart, I'm a 43, not 44 (even though my Giro's are 44)
