Lake CX160 Road Shoes
The Lake CX160 is a classic road cycling shoe from the Chicago upstart. Completely redesigned for 2012, the CX160 is built to give you stability through every stroke and to match the changes as your foot expands from the heat. The upper is made of long lasting leather and a breathable mesh to keep your foot comfortable, cool and dry. The standard fiberglass-injected nylon sole provides good power delivery with minimal flex.
  • Genuine leather and mesh upper helps your foot breath, especially in hot weather
  • Fiberglass-inject nylon sole is competition ready and delivers excellent power transmission with minimal flex
  • 3 hook and loop straps keep your foot securely in the shoe while pedaling
  • Reflective accents on heel

Comments about Lake CX160 Road Shoes:

I was skeptical at first glance but, I bought a pair anyhow. The shoes appear to be well-made, soles are more than stiff enough, fit is accurate and, most importantly, the price can't be beaten. I rode toe clips with old style slotted cleats for years. I decided to go the clipless route. I have to say, clipless is the way to go. I'm just a fitness rider for the most part so, I didn't want to spend alot of money on shoes or pedals. Like I said, the shoes have impressed me.

    Comments about Lake CX160 Road Shoes:

    This is a solid basic shoe. Stiff, light. I measure 13.5 US size and the 50 fits well. The Velcro closures allow to adjust for width, but this shoe does not run wide. It took my ultegra cleats easily.

      Light, comfortable, adequately stiff, true to size (for me, at least), inexpensive. What's not to like?

      Good shoe

        Cons

        • Wears Out Quickly

        Best Uses

        • Road Biking

        Comments about Lake CX160 Road Shoes:

        These have so far been pretty good shoes for me. Noticeable boost in speed over toe cages. I had a few complaints however. First, there are no precision adjustment indicators on the shoe in order to line up cleats. Second, the bottoms, sides and toe show significant signs of wear (gashes) after minimal walking. The toe bumper is set entirely too far back (and/or too short), so when pushing off from a stop you will likely slip/scrape up the bottom plastic and toe pleather material. Aside from those issues, they feel great while riding. Not as light as other shoes, but they fit true, and feel rigid.

              Comments about Lake CX160 Road Shoes:

              The shoes are soft and lightweight and really look nice and fashionable. Need to add about 0.5 to 1 for correct sizing, I wear a 41 but ordered 42 and just fits great.
              The negative thing that I hate about it is the installation of my SPD cleat. It was so hard to cut the bottom sole to remove the plastic cover to install the cleats.
              After installing the cleats, it was very easy to use and good to my feet due to its flexibility and softness.

                Very comfortable. Haven't had long enough to rate on durability. Like the leather upper for this price. I needed to exchange for a size 46 and I usually wear a 10.5-11. Happy so far with this purchase.

                  I have not yet had extensive use of these shoes, and am new to this type shoe. However, thus far, they are very comfortable, light weight and fit perfectly. I wear a size 9 and went with the 43. Perfect. Could not fit better if measured and custom made. Installing cleats was quick and easy. Good toe room, slip on easily and adjust quickly. I will see how they do through the summer, but, initially, could not be more pleased. Nashbar provided outstanding service. Do not believe you can find a better shoe in the price range, and why spend more on a shoe when these will get the job done.
