New shoes – shrink to fit

My shimano R106 shoes were my first road shoes and they were great ….. at first but as I cycled more I discovered I could feel a ridge in the construction under my feet and it would really be felt after about 40 miles.

Bont shoes have a good reputation so I went online and submitted my measurent and it said I should be using a size 42.5 not a 43. They arrived and were uncomfortable but they are designed to be oven wrapped.

So 70C for 40 min then slip them on and cinch them tight ……

I am about to use them as I went out to a friends in the country on Friday night for dinner ….. Took the car there but got a taxi back so popping out for a trial ride on the shoes and car retrieval …. 50 miles should do it for a test.
