The Quadstar boots are 100% Australian leather, very lightweight and completely heat moldable. The 3/4 height boots have a wide, ergonomic toe box. They offer ankle support, but are still flexible enough so they don't restrict movement for hockey stops or deep plow stops.
You can use the adjustable Velcro top closure to hold your foot tight and even use the rear heel loop to put your laces through.
The Ignite plate is now fiberglass reinforced so it can take even more of a beating. It is very light weight and has a 20 degree action with high end cushions.

Bont has very specific sizing. Nothing beats fitting, but if you're not in the possiblity to try on the skates before you buy, we advise you to check this sizing guide from Bont. Depending on your feet, you might even want to go up half a size from the standard Bont sizing advice.
Heat molding instructions
Bont skates are the most heat moldable skates on the market. Our resin is developed in house and has been perfected over 36 years to be an extremely stiff resin that becomes pliable at relatively low temperatures. You may have tried heat molding other brands of boots and found that you needed to increase the temperature to try to get it to mold. That is not the case with your Bont boots and we urge you to start with low temperatures.
The base of the boot is moldable which means all stiff areas of the boot can be molded in a standard oven. You do not need to mold your boots if they fit you straight out of the box. To mold your boots, remove the plates and the innersoles. Pre heat the oven to 85°C/185°F. Place the boot in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Higher temperatures will void your warranty and may damage your boot. Caution: Do not place your feet in the hot boots or you may burn your feet. Let them cool a little and test the boot temperature with your hand before placing your feet in them. Tighten the straps/laces/buckles and allow to cool. If you have any lumps or bunions on your feet or if there are any areas causing discomfort, while the boot is still warm you can use the round end of a blunt object to press out any part of the boot. You can heat mold the boots as many times as you like. Please watch this quick video below to see how it’s done.
Heat Molding FAQ: If the boots take 20 minutes to mold at 85°C, can I put them in the oven for 10 minutes at 170°C? The answer is no. Please stick to the guidelines and your boots will not be damaged.
