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

Good shoe

    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.

          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.

              Comments about Lake CX160 Road Shoes:

              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.

              Comments about Lake CX160 Road Shoes:

              I have ridden with these shoes only twice. But the most recent ride was 40 miles.

              The shoes have, to date, performed well. They are comfortable and do the job. I miss the loop on the back of the shoe that helps pull the shoe on. But that's a minor issue. I bought the shoes, in part, because I previously purchased another pair of Lake shoes in 2004. Those shoes were very durable, are still functional, and similarly performed well. My only quibble with those earlier shoes were that the velcro strap fastened on the inside of the shoe, where the strap constantly came undone rubbing against the pedal crank. The newest shoes are designed otherwise, and don't have that problem.

                Comments about Lake CX160 Road Shoes:

                So far I am very happy with this shoe. This was the only pair of shoes in this price range that I could find with real leather uppers, and I was worried that the higher cost for real leather would mean I'd find short comings elsewhere to keep the price low. So far I haven't. Only five rides in, but the shoes fit great, are very comfortable, and my feet have not been too hot or cold. I did have one small issue with mounting the pedal clips (one of the threaded inserts was recessed too far and could not be reached by the bolt). I used the bolt and washer (without the clip) to pull it to the surface and all was fine. I would buy these again without hesitation.

                    Comments about Lake CX160 Road Shoes:

                    I was looking for a relatively low cost entry-level shoe as this is my first clipless pedal/shoe combo. The shoe fits true to size and is quite comfortable during longer rides. The fact it is made with leather was a plus for me. I can't comment on durability as it has only 100 miles on the bike.
