Rowing specific shoe design
Whilst all rowing shoes will help in correct size, some rowing shoes have extra benefits and sports specific design features.
Bont Rowing shoes have been designed from the ground up to ensure they meet the specific requirements associated to the sport of rowing.
World First Split-sole Design
Combines the advances of Bont Cycling’s proven carbon soles with the innovative Sweet-Spot flex zone.
The carbon heel and forefoot cradles provide optimal power transfer, reduced foot slop, and—with the Sweet-Spot— allow easy, yet controlled flexion for a stable and comfortable catch.
Developed with the rower’s foot in mind—anatomically shaped, and supported where it counts. The Bont Rowing shoes look like no other because no other shoe is designed around your feet *. With a wider toe box and a wrap around upper that works with the sole to support you.
Mid Arch Support
The supportive carbon sole structure improves foot positioning and control, an impact that is felt right up the lower limb to aid knee, hip and spinal tracking through the stroke.
Carbon Fiber Forefoot Cradle
Effective force transfer, more responsive steering, improved feel and far greater comfort.
The shape and build of the carbon fiber forefoot cradle aids the actual shape of the foot when rowing and allows a better fit across all foot types, while providing lateral support for steering and control.
Carbon Fiber Heel Cup
Heel connection and load are vital for the ultimate stroke, engaging your hamstring and gluteal muscles helps with force and control through the legs, pelvis and lower back. Bont Rowing brings you a carbon heel cup that supports your every stroke and moves with you.
Anatomic Heel Counter
Blisters, rubbing and achilles pressure are all issues we have seen in rowing. We have built the shape of the heel counter and it’s cut out specifically for the motion the heel and achilles go through during the stroke. No more blisters, hot sports or discomfort km after km.
Tongueless Midfoot Wrap
Reduces weight, repels water, and enables quick entry and exit. Minimalist materials provide a refined fit and flexibility, allowing natural movement. Vented Durolite material improves airflow and drainage.
Sweet-Spot Flex Zone
Bends with the foot, reduces foot roll through the stroke and guides movement for a more controlled, efficient row and an effortless catch.
Memory Foam Insole
Moulds to your foot shape for a customized fit. Quick-dry lining manages moisture for comfort and hygiene.
