Bont have managed to fit much of the technology in their top end shoes into the well priced Bont Riot
- Carbon fibre soled
- Not much!
Price as reviewed:£99.99
A pair of heat-moldable, carbon-fibre soled shoes for under £100? Really?
It would seem so. Bont’s incredible Riot is the first in its line-up and sets the bar incredibly high. The sole is actually more of a tub.
A mix of carbon-fibre and glass fibre, a brief stint in the oven at just 70˚ for 20 minutes makes them malleable enough to form to the shape of your foot.
It took me a few attempts to manipulate them in certain areas, but the end result was a light, comfortable shoe with an incredibly stiff sole and a stack height of just 4.8mm to really help get the power down.
