      My previous review I stated that the size was 1/2 size large . I now feel that they are true to size. Still a great shoe. Buy and enjoy.

      Comments about Lake MX226 Mountain Shoes:

      First of all these are real leather. Just try to find that now a days . They are really nice looking especially in white. The mesh is a silver color which is better than being white from a cleaning stand point. Let's face it they are mountain bike shoes and they who knows might even get a little dirt on them. Ha ha.
      The soles are taller than the super lite racing shoes which is nice for walking. How do you think they make the super lite shoes super lite. They decrease the thickness of the soles. Not abnormally tall, just normal in height.
      Sizing , I always wear a size 9 or 43 and these a 42.5 is perfect. There fore 1/2 size down.
      These are not heavy by any means, but if you are looking for ultra lite shoes these are not . Each shoe in a 42.5 weighs 455 grams which is very close with in 10 grams of my diadora's which are $225 shoes, and my very nice shimano shoes. Yes I recommend these they are a great do anything shoe.

      Outstanding shoe, I use this with my Mountain Bike and Road Bike. Leather upper and Boa Closure make this an unbeatable shoe. I will never go back to straps and buckles again.

      Comments about Lake MX226 Mountain Shoes:

      I mostly commute (10 mile/day) but like to go for longer rides on the weekends (30-50 miles). I will not go back to the usual strap and buckle. The fit is true to size they are very comfortable and easy to walk in. My only complaint is a slight pinch at the ankle however I have extremely flat feet nothing an arch support won't fix.

      Comments about Lake MX226 Mountain Shoes:

      Great looking shoes, I am sure they are great for some people. I were size 50 so I am crazy picky about bulk and wieght. I found these shoes to be both bulky and heavy. The fit was a bit odd too, the ankle cutouts seemed a little high and dug into the bottoms of my ankles.

        lacing system flaw is easy to fix

        By kilowatt

        from central NM

        Comments about Lake MX226 Mountain Shoes:

        Update to my earlier review: I decided to tear into the BOA system to figure out exactly why it wasn't working. Turns out there is too much cable wound onto the drum which makes the cable layers bind against each other. I removed about 6" of cable (the procedure is not too hard) and it now works perfectly - lacing can be made as tight as you want and releases easily.

        Bottom line: Lake's poor execution is giving BOA a bad rap here.

          The most comfortable bike shoes I've ever worn. I wear Keen street shoes, and the toebox on the Lakes is nice and wide like the Keens.

          Comments about Lake MX226 Mountain Shoes:

          I bought a cyclocross bike to slog through the roads in my rural community during the winter and early spring. I needed a new pair of durable shoes that were compatible with the MT bike pedals I put on my 'cross bike and they fit the ones at my spin class too. These Lake MX226 shoes are perfect. I love the BOA closures, they make for a perfect fit and easy to put on or remove in a flash. just a great all around shoe - stiff, light and dependable.

            Comments about Lake MX226 Mountain Shoes:

            I purchased these in September 2013 for use during my daily commute. I was a little concerned about the durability of the Boa lacing system, but over 6 months of heavy use (on/off 4X/day, 5 days/wk), it is still going strong. The shoes are very comfortable for my wider feet and run true to size (45 just slightly larger than 10.5)
