BONT'S HISTORY OF CUSTOM BOOT MAKING
Mr. Inze Bont first started making custom boots in the backyard of his Sydney house in 1974 after struggling to find a boot that would fit his wide feet. Mr. Bont pioneered the field of custom boot making and has remained the #1 custom boot builder in the world. Each week, Bont custom makes up to 200 pairs of boots. The boots today are still made using the same basic principles that Inze Bont invented in 1974.
Prices may vary from country to country. Custom boots are $250 more expensive than the stock version of that boot. If you want to make the molds at home, the easiest way is with Bont's Molding SoxTM. The molding sox are $70 and we send you out a kit to make the molds at home. Shipping for the sox is roughly $30 but it varies from country to country so please email us for a quote.
WAYS TO MAKE A MOLD OF YOUR FEET
We basically accept any form of making molds to make the boots, but remember that the boot can only be as good as the mold provided to us. We can accept laser scanning, plaster casts, Bont Molding SoxTM or plaster bandages. Please make sure that if you are sending molds to us, pack them really well and make sure they are 100% dry.
