    Comments about Lake CX175 Road Shoes:

    Shoes worked fine for about 6 months then started to loosen while riding. Recently the right shoe will not tighten. Back to my old pair of shoes with a ratchet style closure, I will never buy another shoe without a ratchet closure.

      Good fit with a comfortable toe box. Reasonably stiff sole. BOA system is good for me. Flashy color increases my visibility on urban portion of my rides. It also matches my bike color. Cannot yet comment on durability.

      Comments about Lake CX175 Road Shoes:

      I can't comment on long term durability yet since I've only had the shoes a short while - a little short of a couple hundred miles at this point. However, right out of the box they were comfortable. I really like the leather construction, stiff sole and venting. I don't have a wide foot but I don't have a narrow one either (width D or so). These shoes have a nice rounded front that affords enough room in the toe box for my wigglies - some shoes just don't provide enough room! I wear a 10.5 - 11 US sized street shoe; I ordered a size 45 and I'd say that the length, and overall shoe size is spot on.

      This is my first experience with BOA type fastening and I like it. They are certainly easy to put on and take off. While not infinitely adjustable, they certainly offer fine enough gradation in adjustment that I'd say if you can't make them to your liking in that way, then you're just being silly.

      The tag line on the Lake box says: Focus On The Ride. I'd say that covers it. After my initial focusing on the shoes to see if I made a good decision I've not been thinking about my shoes - I'm focused on my ride.

      I did put a great deal of miles on these shoes for over 1 year, approximately 4000 miles. This morning the right BOA dial broke apart. Its a bit disappointing as the rest of teh shoe is still in really good shape.

      Does not come with the back plate for 2-hole SPD

          Comments about Lake CX175 Road Shoes:

          Not the lightest shoe. The bottom surface is smooth, so you can "fake it" and pedal without clipping easily if for a pedal stroke or two at a light, if you don't clip in right away. (Something you can do with MTB and some road shoes).

          Does not come with a back plate for SPD 2-hole.

          Good value

          Like the BOA so far.

            Comments about Lake CX175 Road Shoes:

            The shoes appeared to be well-constructed, but the BOA dial broke off and could not be re-attached. Part of the plastic internal mechanism was broken, making it impossible to screw the dial back on. The only way that my mechanic could see to fix it was to unsew the shoe and replace the entire dial. I ended up buying new shoes. Other than that, the shoes run small (short) so I'd buy a size larger. Had a problem with numbness despite trying to tweak cleat position. New shoes fixed that problem. On the plus side, the soles seem to be plenty stiff for the money and the shoes are not horribly heavy, although there are lighter options for the money.

              I have used these shoes on about six rides so far.

              I have long and skinny feet and I normally wear a 47 size for my mountain bike shoes. This is a 47 and it feels slightly shorter than my other shoes, but the upper is leather and will probably stretch a little. The size is fine.

              The quality seems good. The footbed is a little different, with the ball of the foot and toes riding a little lower then the rest of the foot. But it works.

              Great shoes. I love the BOA fastener. I read a lot of reviews that these shoes do not fit as per the sizing chart. I wear 9 1/2 US and ordered 43.5 as I always have and they fit perfectly. The BOA fastener is great, but does take some getting used to. Another thing that is different is it seems the tongue of the shoe is much longer than normal and "shrinks" the hole that your ankle fits through. I assume this is because of BOA. It's not bad, but takes a couple rides to get used to-perfectly comfortable though-just different at first.

              Comments about Lake CX175 Road Shoes:

              For many years I have used Sidi Genius shoes with Speedplay pedals but have had issues with foot pain--heat and numbness--once I reached the 90 kms mark on a ride. I have an old pair of Lakes that fit well with SPD cleats so I thought I would try these new shoes with Speedplays. I have used them four times now, including a ride of 102 kms with nearly 1000 m of climbing, and found them to be extremely comfortable. No hot spot issues. I suspect this is because they are definitely a bit wider than the Sidis although both are sized 45. My pair are white and easy to clean. I like the BOA fastener system but we will see about its durability. Perhaps the shoes could be a bit lighter and cooler but they seem well-made and are a screaming bargain at this price.

              Very Good cycling shoe for the price. Very comfortable from the start. I have a medium/wider foot and Lake Shoes fit me perfectly. I don't think that you can beat the Nashbar price. I only wish that they came in a full black color like they do in the mountain bike style which I also purchased. Also would like to see markings on the bottom to aid with cleat mounting. The BOA closure system is great!!
