Lake CX238 — Premium Road Racing Performance

Evolving from the CX237, Lake has improved upon performance and durability, with its high-cadence riding favorite, the Lake CX238 Road Shoe.

Shaped for a better, more comfortable fit, the Competition last increases toe pitch and heel lift, allowing the foot to expand under high pedaling pressure. Supporting the shoe is Lake's Race carbon fiber sole, offering impressive stiffness and power transfer while remaining low in weight. To protect the shoe from premature wear, the full-grain leather upper boasts a panel at the heel and a rubber bumper at the toe, plus mesh panels for proper ventilation.

Designed for high-pressure riding, the Lake CX238's wider forefoot provides the relief you need to focus on the road ahead.


  • A top-tier road shoe for training and racing
  • Fullgrain Water Resistant Premium Leather and mesh with hook lycra
  • Helcor heel panel and rubber toe bumper helps protects the upper from scuffs and scratched
  • Outlast temperature regulating heel and tongue lining offers a luxurious foot feel while maintaining a breathable, durable & firm grip to your foot
  • Race Carbon sole for excellent power transfer
  • CX Competition last provides a secure fit and wider forefoot to relieve pressure
  • Precise and secure closure with the dual BOA system
  • Mesh paneling and vents enhance airflow and cooling

    Comfortable, well built shoe

    I bought these to replace a pair of CX 237s which were nice shoes, but had a couple of flaws or limitations. First, the boa closure on the 237 model did not have the micro adjust in the reverse (loosening) direction, the 238 has the micro-adjustable boa closure. The 237 also had a leather liner. Over the time I've had them this liner has cracked and torn from getting wet and then drying out, repeatedly. I never had that issue with other shoes, but it was what caused me to replace them. The 238 fixed this issue by making the liner synthetic. Other improvements are the toe and heal guards to reduce the likelihood of scuffing the leather. The shoe is vey comfortable, particularly if you like a roomy toe box like I do. The sole is a nice, stiff carbon sole.

    Overall, Lake took a good shoe with good value for the money and made it quite a bit better! I'm very happy with it and highly recommend it.
