    Comments about Lake CX236 Carbon Road Shoes:

    This is a great shoe. I have wide feet and had to return a pair of Northwave shoes because they were too narrow. Based on Lake's sizing I went with a 44. I wear a US 10 and the 44's were more like a US 11. Returned 44s and just got size 43. MUCH better!!!! The wide toe box is really nice and comfy. The BOA system is great and makes adjustments on the bike really easy.

    On thing to remember on these is that the boa cable can be re-routed in two different places making them fit snugger in certain areas.

    Great Shoe!!!!! Highly recommended.

      Comments about Lake CX236 Carbon Road Shoes:

      This is a good road shoe. The carbon soles are very stiff which I feel helps transfer more power to the pedals. They are light weight and the BOA system seems to really help with a good fit and it is much easier than fooling with buckles and velcro.

        Shoes are very comfortable and also perform well with stiff carbon soles. I added a foot insert to support my higher arches. Light weight durable and an improvement over previous pair. I would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable performance based shoe.

        Comments about Lake CX236 Carbon Road Shoes:

        I regret buying white due to the fact that it gets dirty easily and looks a bit gaudy. These are some of the comfiest road shoes I've worn with the boa dialsystem and actual padding around the ankle while still maintaining a pretty light weight for their price. My only gripe is the excessive venting especially on top of the toes that makes the overall
        look a little less solid/sleek.

            Watch the sizing on these shoes, almost 2 sizes smaller for me. Use the sizing chart and the template. Nice roomy toe box that works well for me. The tighten on the fly BOA system is the Bomb!

            Great show but go small.

                Comments about Lake CX236 Carbon Road Shoes:

                They run very large, specifically in the toe box. My street shoe size is 10.5 (44.5 Euro) but ordered a 10 (44) to compensate for stretch (they're leather) and they were enormous. I sent them back and ordered a size 9 (43 Euro) and they are almost perfect. Still slightly roomy but the Boa cranks down to compensate.
                I've ridden them about 200 miles, mostly Wasatch Canyons and they are very nice. Vey stiff compared to my old shoes (Specialized, non-carbon) and I feel the energy transfer while climbing. Great shoe but go small.

                  Use these for road exclusively... put the low-end Shimano shoes I was previously using to shame! There was a noticeable reduction in lost power to the drivetrain on the first ride. I'm a heavier rider (220) and I could feel the spring in my stroke when I was laying down more power.

                  In addition, the Boa system was a HUGE upgrade from the ratchets I was use to. Much easier to put on/take off. Doesn't hurt that I get complements on the looks either! Would definitely buy again.

                  Comments about Lake CX236 Carbon Road Shoes:

                  Fresh out of the box I went on a hard metric plus century and for the first time in years finished without being almost a cripple from toe pain.

                  I suppose if you have narrow toes you can get away with other shoes but I have narrow heals and wide ball and toes and have always had poor fit with road shoes though MTB shoes tend to be OK because of the very strong sole preventing flex.

                  But I'll use nothing but Lake from now on.

                  The size is proper but this may not feel right on people with narrow feet.
