-Secure strapping system
-Easy to clean


Weaknesses:    -Heat Molding not as straight forward as described
-Can be expensive


Bottom Line:   
I've had these shoes for one and a half seasons now. The initial molding process was trickier than what is laid out by Bont. The first reason for this is that many conventional ovens don't have a low enough heat setting for the molding process. I had to put a meat thermometer in the oven and continually open the oven door so as not to let it get too hot and overheat the shoes as this will void the warranty. I had to mold the shoes three times before I got them as comfortable as I wanted them. They took some getting used to as well as some saddle height adjustment because of the lower stack height. After a couple of weeks they felt very good. I haven't had any issues with them and they are still very comfortable and super stiff. All the work up front to get them to the point of being comfortable was definitely worth it.
