    Comments about Lake CX226 Road Shoes:

    I bought these a month ago to replace worn out Sidi shoes. I love the buckle free closure system and the comfortable fit of these shoes. Also, they are well made with a mix of real leather and mesh. I ride twice a week for about 25 to 30 miles and haven't had any issues with them. Great product, I would recommend these without hesitation!

    Shoes were defective

    Comments about Lake CX226 Road Shoes:

    A cleat nut was stripped on each shoe keeping me from properly securing the look binding to the shoe. This is a huge disappointment and now I've got to go through the hassle of returning and having to purchase other shoes.

    Comments about Lake CX226 Road Shoes:

    I bought these primarily because Lake makes wide shoes. I have 3E or 4E feet, and wear Lake shoes for Mtn. biking as well. Most shoes are not accommodating for wider feet. These are fine. They're not lightweight, so if you need the lightest shoes around for racing, you'll probably need to spend more on Sidi megas. But these have been fine, and so far wearing well.

        Small toe box and heavier than the competition

          Comments about Lake CX226 Road Shoes:

          After reading reviews decided to try the Lake shoe because most Lake shoes have a larger toebox area - not this one. My Bontrager shoes have more room. I returned these and purchased Northwave as a replacement - much better.

            Have just used on two rides thus far. Shoe easy on and off. Seems a bit loose when initially put on and tightened, but BOA system will take up slack many times and can be tightened as firmly as I would like. No toe numbness.

            For Wider Feet

            Comments about Lake CX226 Road Shoes:

            The forward half of my foot is wide while the back is normal. I seldom find a set of shoes that doesn't leave me almost crippled after a long hard ride. These lakes are the outstanding exception. I have never had a more comfortable ride ending one of the local centuries with very much climbing with no foot pain whatsoever. What a relief!

              Exceptional fit. Really like the roomy toe box. My previous Diadoras would pinch my toes just a bit and on a long ride could get to be a bit uncomfortable. These Lakes are very comfortable - I could wear them all day. Easy to adjust snugness on the fly.

              Not what I hoped for

              • Road Biking

              Comments about Lake CX226 Road Shoes:

              Wanted to venture into the BOA system. Now I understand why Sidi and other top ends use a double boa and/or boa with a velcro system. Unfortunately with a single boa the entire shoe is tightened at the same specs across the 3 points. I like the toe box to be a little loose. With these they are either tight everywhere or a bit to loose everywhere. If I crank to the preferred specs in the middle and top the bottom is too tight and it creates numbness and hot spots for me. If you like a tight fit at every point these are great shoes. If not, PASS!!!
