Rolling in Comfort: Bont Skates - The Wide Feet Experts

Are you tired of squeezing your feet into roller skates that feel like they're two sizes too small? Well, guess what? The solution to your skate-squeezing struggles is here, and it goes by the name of Bont Skates!

Why Bont Skates?

When it comes to roller skates, one size definitely does not fit all. Especially for those of us with wide feet, finding the right pair of skates can feel like searching for a needle in a roller skate haystack. That's where Bont comes in, and let us tell you why they are the champions of wide feet comfort.

Custom Width for Your Happy Feet

Bont Skates knows that every foot is unique, just like a skate trick. They've got a game-changing option that makes them stand out from the skate crowd – custom widths. That's right, no more forcing your feet into skates that cramp your style.

Here's the deal: Bont can craft roller skates to match your foot's exact width. How? It's simple! You just need to trace your feet on a piece of paper, send it over to Bont, and for just a small additional fee of $30, they'll create skates that are as cozy as your favorite pair of slippers. So, whether you've got wide Fred Flintstone feet or slightly wider-than-average toes, Bont has your back, or should we say, your feet!

How can we make any width skate?

Bont is able to make any width skates for models that do not use pre-made bases. Instead, we wrap the fiberglass or carbon around the boot. This gives us the advantage of being able to make the last (plastic foot) wider using foam before we make the boot.

To do this, you send us a tracing of your foot. Then, we will put the last on the tracing and adjust it with foam until it is the same shape as your foot. This ensures that the boot will be a perfect fit, even if you have wide feet. 

Here are some additional details about the Bont semi-custom skate fitting process:

  • The first step is to take a tracing of your foot. This is done by placing your foot on a piece of paper and tracing around it.
  • The next step is to adjust the last. The last is a plastic foot that is used to create the shape of the skate boot. we will use foam to widen the last until it is the same shape as your foot.
  • Once the last is adjusted, the boot is made. 
  • The final step is to heat and mold the boot to your foot. This is done by placing your boots in an oven or using a hair dryer to warm it up. The heat will cause the boot to conform to the shape of your foot.

How long does it take to make my wide Bont skates?

The process of making a custom-fit Bont skate takes 8-12 weeks, depending on the time of year. However, the wait is worth it for a skate that will provide you with the ultimate in comfort and performance.
