Item # LKC000D

Custom fit for the Speedplay set.

The folks at Lake recognize that when it comes to pedals, everyone has a favorite, which is why the CX402 Shoes are offered in a Speedplay-specific version. Just like its 3-hole sibling, this top-tier road shoe is built with a kangaroo leather upper, which is prized for its durability and suppleness. Plus, with the moldable Custom Fit carbon fiber sole, you won’t have to sacrifice comfort for efficiency. Of course, the dual Boa closures only enhance the supreme foot retention. Speedplay fans rejoice, there may be no better fitting 4-hole shoe on the planet.

Lake has worked long and hard on building the ultra-efficient Custom Fit carbon fiber sole. You may have had carbon-soled shoes in the past that didn’t quite fit, and if that’s the case, you recognize that ultimate power transfer is meaningless if your feet are in agony. But you can say goodbye to the era of compromise, as these puppies are heat moldable, ensuring perfect fit and incredible heel hold. Best of all, with a personalized fit, you won’t have to crank them down to keep your feet in place.

The dual BOA closures only enhance the fit. By employing two Boa dials, Lake enables you to keep your heel locked down, without requiring undue pressure on the forefoot. And as you already know, that means better blood flow, and greater comfort.

The BOA closures are hidden underneath the sleek kangaroo leather upper, which promises fantastic service life. Better yet, since kangaroo leather is among the thinnest, most durable types of leather around, they’re incredibly supple and only get better with time. The perforations work in conjunction with mesh panels to maximize airflow, so your feet stay cool, instead of getting clammy.

The Lake CX402 Speedplay Shoes are available in whole and half sizes from 39 to 47, plus whole sizes 48 and 50, and in the colors Black/black and White/black. Please note that the Speedplay version of the CX402 shoe is not available in wide sizes.

Worth Every Penny

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

My Lake experince started with the MXZ 303 Boots for Fat-Biking. They were stupid comfortable. I have had comfortable mountain biking shoes but these boots are plush. So I next bought some MX 237 for mountain biking. Not as plush but still super comfortable. I have NEVER found a pair of road shoes even mildly comfortable. I tried the Northwave Extreme Techs...after a full season I literally could not stand them They actually got worse the more they broke in. Last year I picked up a pair of the Sidi Wire Push. They were better, but they serrated tongue top was a evil little ankle biter, and I would get some hotspots. So I picked up a pair of the 402's about a month ago. I have about 500 or so miles in them, and just did the NYC Gran Fondo in them. They are awesome. Stupid comfy. They aren't a shoe you put on and forget they are there. You know they are there because of how comfortable they feel. I know shoe fit is subjective. I have a medium width foot, with a medium arch. The toe box is perfect. Not to narrow (Italian fit), and not to wide. The arch is rather high. The carbon sole has a pre-formed high arch. Due to this I put in some low arch insoles (low arch + Lake built-in Arch = medium Arch) and they are perfect. Once you form the heal it's like wearning perfecty fitted, stiff soled bunny slippers. These things rock. I am not brand-loyalist typically, but when it come to Lake cycling shoes, I am now one through-and-through. I normally wear a 43, but got these in a 42.5 and they fit perfect, so they run a hair large.

Best shoes I've ever worn

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 44.5 european

I have had the Lake Speedplay 402s for almost two weeks and have put over 500 miles on them including long mountain climbs, interval training, and tempo rides. The fit from the box was painful in the heel cups, but heat molding solved that. I've molded the left shoe once and the right four times. My right foot is a more difficult fit, and I'm trying to match the extraordinary fit of the left shoe as closely as I can. Right now both shoes fit, transfer power, and "disappear" on my feet far better than any shoe I've used. The only remaining question is whether the shoes will hold their shape and retain their great look for several years. I don't believe in spending a lot of money just to impress myself, but these shoes are money well spent.

Another Great Lake Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Theses shoes fit fantastic for me, I have a narrow ankle with wider toes, and the dual boa system allows me to tweak the fit perfectly. They do have a pronounced arch, so it may take time to get used to the fit. I had CX331's before these, and this shoe is significantly better. No problems with heel slip whatsoever after the custom molding. I really appreciate that the toe is entirely wrapped in rubber, it keeps them from getting scuffed walking and the occasional street tap. I'd recommend them to anyone.

I got the CX402s this week. Heated and fit them yesterday; once for the left shoe, twice for the right. Then I rode forty-one miles at medium + effort. I've never felt shoes like these. While riding I was asking myself, "What do these shoes remind me of?" Then I remembered: back in my skiing days I wore custom-foamed ski boots that were formed around my feet while they were in a "neutral" position. The boots - and these shoes - wrap around my feet like a protective shell.
No rating yet; I've only used them once. But my first impressions are overwhelmingly positive.

Unusual shoes. Love or Hate.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are not what you would expect from most cycling shoes. The kangaroo leather is thin, light, supple, matte, relaxed looking. Most cycling shoes have a glossy technical look; whereas these are more like leather bedroom slippers. Besides being somewhat 70s or 80s retro, this aesthetic is a little odd and may or may not agree with your sense of style. (Important because odd shoes on a large foot can make the wearer look a bit silly.)

They run quite narrow. My feet are large but medium width at most and these are pretty tight. Don't order if your feet are wide or nearly wide. The carbon soles are crazy stiff, but if your foot doesn't fit, punishing. Heat molding works much better than expected--the carbon fibre uppers can be formed with finger and foot pressure, but if you have a wide foot or low arch you are likely to find these punishing to stand in even after molding.

I ordered a 46 which is my size in most other footwear, including carbon soled cycling shoes and inline skates. It is not only a bit too narrow, it is also a bit too short. The 46.5 fits length but is still a bit narrow at the midsection which heat molding seems to have fixed.

The arch still feels a bit high but If they fit right, the kangaroo leather and heat molding should allow for closely tailored customization. People who are fine with the aesthetic and find a fit could be very happy with this shoe. I suspect they are slightly narrow because heat molding is better at widening than narrowing a shoe.

Fortunately they are quite comfortable pedaling! The shorter native 4-bolt stack height (see picture) is more stable and the broad adjustable cleat mount zone should be enough to allow anyone to find a fit. The sole is very firm and free of hotspots. Turning the pedals wearing these should put a smile on your face and just maybe a touch higher speeds on your cyclometer. Shorter native stack height feels much more stable and more efficient on the pedal (no rocking or squeaking). No question for speed play riders that native mount confers better feel, better adjustment, and less fuss. The cleat mounting area is enormous and very stiff--no hot spots.

It's a shoe you could grow to love as you use it and appreciate the benefit of its quirks. The uppers and dual boas do a perfect job of finding tension adequate to keep your foot snugly in place without discomfort.

Unusual shoes. Love or Hate.

Update: over 1K miles later, the kangaroo leather and shoe have molded perfectly to my feet. Pedal feel and perceived efficiency are fantastic. A quick buff is all it takes to remove road grime from the white leather. Great shoes. Easy to love. Upgraded from 4 to 5 stars.

Because these stretch over time, make sure your initial fit is snug.

Does these come with the carbon sole protector plate?


No, these do not come with a plate. I ordered the speedplay plate separately from CC

The plate is absolutely required to avoid damaging the CF shoe sole. My LBS had a pair on the shelf for $10. Good thing I had it mounted as I somehow managed to put a divot in the plate on a 15mi test ride!

Great shoes... perhaps the best*

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

*Truth be told, all contact points are a matter of a bit of objective information and a lot of personal preference. I had ordered a pair of the Bont Vapor Plus shoes, but they felt sloppy. I appreciated the extra toe box room, but the extra width seemed to extend all the way back to the heel. Back went the Bonts and in came the Lakes.

These are breathtakingly expensive, but for my feet these were the right choice. The difference with the Bonts was night and day. The Lakes feel like someone is holding your foot tightly in their hand - not uncomfortable, but surprisingly firm. They - like the Bonts - are heat-moldable, but I have not needed to do so. If you aren't as happy about their firm feel, you could easily remold the shoe to a wider fit. Personally, I'd rather go that way than try and mold a loose shoe to fit tighter. The Boa closures work great too. The top strap comes a little lower on the foot than other shoes. I have had the Rapha Grand Tours and their Giro counterparts the Prolight SLXs and both of their top straps came too high on my foot so that when my feet were at 9 o'clock the strap would cause discomfort. The Lake shoe is lower (although not quite as much as the Bont which was exceptional in this regard) and still holds firm under standing climbs or hard efforts. I do not have an objectively narrow foot, but if your feet run toward the narrow side, these are a great choice. You may also get the same fit with their less expensive shoes. I went for these because I wanted a super comfortable top-shelf shoe that was also understated (bought the all black) and these have been perfect. They are also Speedplay specific which has been great.

Oh, and buy these from Competitive Cyclist. If they aren't for you the return policy is outstanding.
