BONT HYBRID FIBREGLASS LEATHER BOOT WHITE/BLACK
The Hybrid has been designed for skaters who want a cross between a derby and race boot. This boot is low cut like a race boot but it features a 2mm thick Australian leather outer skin which is extremely tough.
- Fiberglass base
- Epoxy resin
- Light weight microfiber liner
- Hand made 1 piece construction
- EVA innersole
- Waxed laces
- 1.5mm Australian full grain leather outer skin
- Fully heat moldable
The fiberglass in the boot is made hard by the use of a thermosetting epoxy resin. Resin development is something that we have 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 our unique requirement which is why we are the only skate manufacturer who develops our own resins in-house.
Our resin becomes soft at just 60°C (140°F) which is the lowest in the industry. Once you heat the resin, mold the shoe and let it set, it is permanently set without the need to remold. You can also reheat the resin as many times as you like.
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. However, our 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.
This size chart shows the exact last size. 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. We have also added a width measurement so you can check if your feet are too narrow or wide for the standard boot. If they are, then you should order our narrow or wide boots.
To find your size, place a tape measure on a flat surface up against a wall. Stand on the tape measure with your heal 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.
