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.

          Comments about Lake CX226 Road Shoes:

          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.

          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.

            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!!!

              Wasn't sure about the BOA system. so far seems to be very good. Easy on and off. Can adjust while riding. No hot spots.

                Comments about Lake CX226 Road Shoes:

                I have wider feet, and Lake is known to offer wider toe boxes. I also own a >10 yrs old pair of really excellent MTB shoes from Lake that are still in really great shape despite 1000s of miles of abuse.
                A recent upgrade to a new pair of MTB shoes made me realize that Lake offers on their homepage very accurate measuring ans sizing instructions (width and length). After receiving a pair of excellently fitting and well-built MTB shoes, I *had* to upgrade my road shoes and got these shoes.

                They are another perfect fit, very comfortable, well built, and of high quality (very soft leather, well ventilated, stiff sole, BOA,...).
                I did not expect BOA to be such an improvement over Velcro straps. Very even pressure, no constrictions, great power transfer.
                Had I discovered BOA before, I would have bought the Lake BOA MTB shoes on sale, too. Well, live and learn...
