Default Can you use bont cycling shoes?

I saw a nice set up where they had the bont a-3 cycling shoes mounted to a proline plate. Is this a good set up? has anyone used it before? and if so what plates size would you use for a 41 euro and what or who would be a good place or person to have mount them for me? thanks for any info or opinions.

Are ya sure it was an A3 and not a Black Widow?? The cycle shoe sole are really not set up for sk8 plates.

and if so what plates size would you use for a 41 euro

155-165mm but that me. (I wear a 40 wide in a Bont)

and what or who would be a good place or person to have mount them for me? thanks for any info or opinions.
If you are planning on doing an existing cycle shoe I don't know that it would work properly... I would have to see pix of yours to even make a guess...

If you are planning on buying one, DON'T!! Get a Bont quad boot. If you want one that looks like the A3 we may be able to get one made.. I'm emailing Bont right now as a matter of curiosity..

I just like the concept of bont boots, as a short track skater i always loved them due to the fact i can get them snug and not wear socks. I am somewhat afraid to try something new. here is a photo of the a-1 set up i had found. i believe the biggest difference are the straps. I can't seem to locate the A-3 w/ proline set up i had found. thanks for you help
never posted pics so i hope i did it right

in regards to it being a black widow, in email he stated it was actually a cycle boot? I checked bont and it looks similar to the a-1 cycle boot?

The Black Widow shown in the photo above, coincidentally, I just bought on eBay. The difference is that the quad boot is flat on the bottom and come up a little higher on the sides near the ankle.

As well, I one a pair of Bont A-One cycling shoes. All the cycling shoes have a curved sole, which would not properly connect to the skate plate.
