The Prostar is designed with many quality built-in featurs than many others in this category – at a fraction of the price!
Super Heat Moldable
The Prostar boot is made with thermoplastic in the heel. This is especially good for skaters with skinny or wide ankles as it allows you to mold your boot with a hairdryer to obtain a custom fit in under 10 minutes.
Bont boots are manufactured by hand in a process where we build the boot from the inside out by hand laying the fiberglass around the last (plastic foot). This method of manufacturing is extremely time consuming compared to the traditional method of quad boot manufacturing which is done by gluing the upper to the pre made base. BONT's method results in a much stronger and lighter structure.
BONT Boot Sizing
It's critical to get this part right prior to ordering! This size chart shows the exact size of the foot form or 'last' that is used to create each specific size of BONT boots. As a basic rule, most skaters like their boots to be 3-4mm longer than the last. This allows for your feet to grow in length when the boots are tightened. If you like your boots super tight, then just add 1-2mm but be warned, your toes will touch the end and possibly be scrunched. To find your size, place a tape measure on a flat surface up against a wall. Stand on the tape measure with your heel against the wall. If you use a ruler, take into consideration that most rulers have a gap where there are no measurements. Look down and take the measurement from your longest toe. Then use the MM scale on the size chart to find your size...
Here are some examples of mm sizes and the boot size that BONT recommends:
253mm + 4mm you should order size 6.5
258mm + 4mm you should order size 7
273mm + 4mm you should order size 9
291mm + 4mm you should order size 11
