So far so good

I have wide feet 9DDD and these shoes are perfectly wide enough. Only worn 3 times and still need breaking because my pink83 toe extends out but nothing i can�t mold in after 2 more rides. No hot spots. I�ve worn Shimanos, Sidis, DMT and Giros. There are the most comfy shoes I�ve ever slipped my feet in and with a secure BOA system that hugs my heels (win). sole is stiff too (good thing). All white no labels is what drew me in. The comfort is what made me stay. I�m a cat 3 cyclist @173 lbs.

Thank you for your feedback.

Light Stiff Wide - closure system and fit could be better

Coming from Sidi Mega, these shoes feel like they sit on a wider forefoot pedaling platform and have a good amount of forefoot room. I followed Lake's sizing guide for length/width and it seems accurate. They are light (size 45 535g) and the carbon soles feel very stiff/efficient. What I didn't like is that the toe cap area is stiffened/hard to keep its shape and at times bothers my big toe, versus the soft toe on the Sidi which conforms to your foot. Also, the single BOA can only be tightened while riding (you need to release the BOA if you want to loosen), and the traditional tongue doesn't feel like it is holding my foot snug even when the BOA is fully tightened, a dual BOA may work better or a more significant strap over the arch of the foot. Overall, it is good, but I would probably go for a shoe with a dual BOA closure OR with something that has a Shimano style "wrap around" upper if I were to buy again.

Thank you for your feedback.

Most perfect to power shoe ever

Yes yellow lake shoes require mountains. But these 218wide shoes are the most perfect power transfer over any terrain without the awkward extra toe ball carbon sole under your foot. (If you have a pure climbing bike you only need these.

Thank you for your feedback.

My 3rd Pair of Lake Shoes

I have been very pleased with my 3rd pair of Lake shoes, the fit was perfect. They are very comfortable with no hot spots on long rides. I would recommend these shoes to anyone looking for an everyday shoe to wear on training rides.

Thank you for your feedback.

Very nice quality soft leather

The shoe is comfortable and this is my first time getting a wide shoe. I had a pair of Sidi shoes that were too narrow for my feet. These shoes fit very well and they have half sizes. I would definitely buy another pair in the future.

Thank you for your feedback.
