Alright so I understand this might seem like another typical "What shoes should I get question" however there are actually some really specific conditions I'm looking for some advice/help on.
Right now I ride Bont A2's size 42.5 and I absolutely LOVE them, best shoes I have ever had, love the stiffness, the feeling everything! However, I ride with eSoles and recently have added a "toe lift" under my big toe to help cant my right foot to correct for some morphological and functional asymmetries. This toe lift has done a great job in really improving my knee tracking and actually relieving some of the pressure I used to feel on that right knee.
The problem however, is that now the right shoe is a bit too tight in the toes. What I'm curious about is does anyone have experience with some shoes that might have a more high volume toe box? I'm interested in something that has more vertical area in the toe region, wiidth wise the Bont's are perfect but vertically I could use some extra space. I have heard Sidi Mega have a pretty "high toe" in terms of volume but I was hoping for some personal experience on shoes to look at.
I have some of their clothes too and they're just ok so if you've tried them before don't let that be a reflection on the quality of the sworks shoes.
Also, that shoe fitter is pretty cool!

It's not the mountain you're climbing, it's yourself. If you don't want to know, stay at the bottom.

Why is that a problem? I can understand too little room.
I found Mavic Zxellium were not that roomy vertically with Spec footbeds fitted. They were a little better with stock footbeds but I was concerned I would end up putting a toe through the mesh upper even though they were very comfortable.

I so want a pair of Vittoria shoes but availability seems limited in Australia...
