Who should buy Lake MX218

The MX218 from Lake offers bikers with fuller feet more comfort for all-day wear by applying the brand's MX Competition last. This design features a roomier toe box, slightly more volume, and a tighter heel area than Lake's other last designs. 

This bike shoe is a great pair for those with a wide fit who enjoy the following endeavors:

  • Performance riding/training
  • Mountain racing
  • Trail riding
  • Routes with hike-a-bike sections

Using the MX Competition last instead of the Comfort last provides the Lake MX218 with a larger toe box and tighter heel. Also, the MX competition last is responsible for giving a slightly more overall volume compared to the Sport last.

Warm conditions will not matter

Several cyclists commend this MTB shoe's leather upper material as it provides adequate airflow and prevents the foot from getting too hot.
