Default Bont Patriot for outdoor boot.

I was looking at the Bont Patriot on an Aussie website the other day and thought "hey, they would make a good outdoor boot".
Plenty of support, tough looking, have that rubber bit around the front, seem not to expensive ($260 on the site I saw, which is cheap in Australia!), and weather proof with the flap on the front.
Anyone got much experience with them?
What's the 1/4 inch counter like to skate with? I like a flat sole/inner, would it feel odd?
Anyone know what they weigh??

Default Bont Boots

Hi There!

Just put these together , can't wait to try them outside.... boots are really nice and very good ankle support. This is a 2009 model on Rolline's. God Bless Bont!

Default Don't be fooled!

Please don't rely on the "tough rubber toe guard". It's a cheap plastic (albeit replaceable) and you'll wear through it in no time- if you are planning on dragging or falling. It might take a "bump" into something though.

Make sure you get the new model or you might find the high cut ankle carbon too stiff for your liking (although you can pull up leather and cut it yourself).

Liner is flat, I honestly don't know if mine are built up, but I wear a small heel/arch innersole in mine.

They are quite nice though, I enjoy wearing them, when all is said and done. I wear mine snug with a stocking or thin sock. Make sure you take the mm measurement yourself- my friend sent her tracing to them for $20 more and ended up with a boot bigger than mine, even though she's a whole size smaller.

In fact, do you want to buy a size 38 (5.5 UK)??? Patriot Pro?

Thanks for the offer but I'm a size 10 Bont.
I couldn't order them in the end, just didn't like the cut of them enough.
I went for the new Bont Hybrid. They say 3 weeks delivery. Let's see hey!
