BONT MyBONTS Custom Hybrid Carbon Boots!
MyBONTS is a custom tool that helps in the design and customization of your Bont boots and generates an actual work order for your boots. BONT has been been building quality athletic footwear, and providing customization longer than most – since 1975! The best way to begin this process is onsite at our Woodstock, Ontario location, where you can try on actual BONT fitting stock and get personal attention and expert advice on all the details and customizartion options. The next best method is to set up a phone appointment where we can run though much of the same detail and work with you remotely to get your sizing and other particular customizations correctly ordered.

BONT Custom Hybrid Carbon Boots with Leather and/or Durolite
The BONT Hybrid Carbon features a lightweight hand crafted carbon fiber base and is fully heat moldable! The Leather version is made with a tough 2mm thick Australian full grain Leather outer skin while the Durolite version is made from strong and durable vegan Durolite microfiber. Comes complete with EVA Innersoles and BONT waxed laces.
BONT uses carbon exclusively from the world's #1 carbon manufacturer, Toray of Japan. The base of the BONT Hybrid Carbon is made by hand by sandwiching cross weave carbon and uni-directional carbon fiber which is embedded with epoxy thermo setting resin. The fibers are hand laid in the matrix according to the strain they will have to bear.
The fiberglass in the boot is made hard by the use of a thermosetting epoxy resin. Resin development is something that BONT has been doing since 1975. Formulating a resin that is super stiff, yet becomes moldable at low temperatures and has a fast cure time is critical for this unique requirement.
Bont boots are manufactured by hand in a process where we build the boot from the inside out by hand laying the carbon of 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.
The Hybrid is made with high density closed cell memory foam. This padding will not deform over time or retain water from sweat or wet surfaces.
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
