Lake CX218 Carbon Road Shoe | Black/Pink
Since 1982 Lake has innovated new categories in the cycling shoe market. Mountain Bike Shoes were inexistent until Lake produced the first shoe designed specifically to handle the rough terrain and stiff enough to not cause foot fatigue and the same could be said for the fat bike boot that was designed a decade before the competition ever conceived that this was a category for cycling. Not many companies are focused primarily on the foot and neither are they making only footwear; however, Lake remains resolute in our focus, to make the most comfortable, best performing cycling shoe in the market.

CX/TX Competition Last – With a profile specifically designed for very high-cadence riding & higher pressure, their Competition last features a more curved profile than the Sport last. The main differences include increased toe pitch & heel lift, a tighter heel & a slightly wider ball girth to allow the foot to expand under high pedalling pressures.
Action leather and mesh upper - breathable, long lasting durability, form fitting & great looking without sacrificing price, Action Leather is a split leather with a PU surface treatment. This treatment helps to reduce stretch and increase water resistance.
BOA Closure - BOA Closure System is a micro-cable closure system provides a fine-tunable, evenly distributed closure that eliminates pressure points & hot spots. It is the first mechanical system to meet Lake's exacting standards. Boa is a registered trademark of Boa Technology Inc.

How to get basic foot measurement.
Take your foot measurement In a seated position while wearing your cycling socks.
Step 1: Trace your foot onto a sheet of paper. After you trace your foot take a ruler and make a line to mark the furthest point on all four sides as shown below.(see image above)
Step 2: Length measurement (Points 1 to 2 as shown below). Use a millimeter ruler to get the measurement of the longest distance from heel to longest toe (first or second toe).
Step 3: Width measurement (Points 3 to 4 as shown below). Use a millimeter ruler to get the measurement of the widest distance of foot from side to side.
Step 4: Repeat steps for other foot as your feet may be different sizes. Typically you will want shoes that accommodate your largest foot the most comfortably.
Please Note: for accurate measurement please obtain a 3 digit millimeter measurement.
Example: 267mm or 26.7cm will provide the correct amount of data.
Accurate measurements cannot be obtained from only 2 digits.
example: 26cm does not provide enough data to determine size.
Add 5mm to your actual length measurement to get recommended size, it is not necessary to add any additional mm to your measured width.
