Lake CX238: A premium road race shoe
What makes a road bike shoe high-performing? Some of the most common features found in high-end road shoes are premium quality materials, excellent workmanship, efficient closure, and top-rate power transfer. All of these components are provided by the Lake CX238.
But apart from these usual outstanding elements found in many road shoes, the CX238 trumps most cycling shoes when it comes to one thing.
What makes the Lake CX238 stand out? A proper fit.
Even the highest-rated shoes in the market are rendered useless if they cannot provide a good fit for most consumers. The CX238 and most of Lake's footwear have a reputation of giving a couple of mm of allowance to allow natural toe splay and accommodate most foot shapes.
The brand's Competition last is designed with increased toe pitch and heel lift, tighter heel area, and slightly ball area.
