Lake CX238-X Wide Road Shoe

The Lake CX238-X Wide Road Shoe is an improvement on a classic without while maintaining the aspects of the CX237 that had made it one of the best cycling shoes ever made.

Fullgrain Water Resistant Ecco Premium leather and mesh with hook lycra & Outlast heel lining make this road cycling shoe a comfortable favorite, built to withstand the miles.

The leather upper is sleek, has minimized stitching and is form-fitting giving you a glove-like feel that over time makes a perfect match to your foot like nothing else. 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.

    A Real wide shoe = happy feet

    Switched from Sidi's shoes in November because kept getting unrelenting hot spot and numb right foot starting this summer.

    Tried everything from moving cleat to loosening buckles and shimming pedal outboard. Nothing worked.

    Until I got wider shoes. These shoes are the same width as my Keen Austin walking shoes. I took the insole from them and it fits perfectly in these. I use Size 46 for both shoes and am 6'-2" tall. Leather uppers are very supple and no pinching since boa's can be loosened very easily. Now pain free riding.

    Considered Bont's but didn't want to pay 2x the cost and have a shoe that was too stiff.

    Got these for about 240 dollars on sale. Thank you BTD.

    Work Shoes..

    I own 5 pair of Lake's including 2 pair of CX402, Lake's top of the line race shoes, I also have the previous model of CX238 and this new version is so much better in every way, the old model looked and felt like the upper was made with synthetic leather and this new model has a soft and and expensive looking leather upper, the tongue is very very comfortable. The old shoe is actually a bit too wide and the new is again perfect plus the shape of the new shoe is significantly more attractive. I have about 10 hours of indoor bike time breaking them in and while I'm riding I can't tell that they are even on my feet. When I ordered them I was a bit skeptical they might feel cheap like my old 238's not so, these look and feel expensive.. the down side is they are a bit heavy and they are not really warm weather summer shoes but if you live in a cooler climate like I do they make a great cool weather option.. Highly recommended for riders that experience foot pain while riding with standard width shoes but don't need a pair of swim fin's either..

    Best if you want comfort for long rides and need a wide shoe

    If you have a wide foot, these are the shoes for you. I have owned Specialized and Giro but Lake are so much nicer, easy to put on and take off and just plain comfortable.

    Wide in forefoot where needed

    Finally found a shoe that is designed around the foot, instead of fashion. They are a very comfortable and good looking shoe to boot :)

    Gone are the hot spots and pinched toes and also allows for the cleat to be be set further back.

    Dealing with Bike Tires Direct has been great! Price was awesome and let me order several sizes to insure a proper fit. Lake shoes are my now go to brand for bike shoes

    Comfy shoe for wide feet

    Retired my Sidi Megas and bought the Lakes. After about 150 miles of riding, the Lakes feel less constricting in the forefoot.

    Excellent introduction to Boa Lacing

    Purchased the CX238-X to replace a fairly dated (at least 10 years old) but still functional Sidis with rachet & Velcro system. Compared to my old shoes, the Lakes felt soft yet secure with no noticeable hot spots. The 2 Boa dials were easy to adjust and were able to distribute pressure more evenly on my foot. The ventilation also felt good, making my feet feel cool during 80+ degree/60+ humidity rides.

    Most comfortable wide bike shoe I have tried.

    High quality construction, comfortable and the carbon sole is very responsive to the pedal.

    Great for wide feet

    Having purchased cycling shoes in the past based on my guess from street and athletic shoes has been a disaster. Trying larger sizes to get a wider width became a waste of time and money. Using Lakes measurement method and finding the appropriate wide size for my feet worked out very well.

    The CX238-X fit me just right. The length and width are spot on. The twin BOA dials allow for easy adjustment, even while riding. No hot spots on the foot from the uppers or the sole. The super stiff carbon fiber sole is wonderful for power transfer. Glad I saved up for this purchase. No regrets getting these shoes. Looking forward to many miles and smiles in my Lakes. Now to save up for a white pair of CX238-X.
