Description

Put Old Man Winter in his place.

Not only has Lake been building cycling shoes for what seems like forever, the iconic brand pretty much pioneered the concept of winter riding boots. So, when we heard that Lake was back at it with the MXZ 303 Winter Boots, needless to say we were excited. While the previous iteration, the MXZ 302, was praised for its warmth, there were a handful of features that held it back from reaching its full potential. Thankfully, with the 303, those irksome details have been weeded out, and what you're left with is a warm, versatile, high top, off-road riding boot that comes into its element once your shoe covers are no longer cutting the mustard.

As always, correctly chosen materials are essential for keeping your feet warm when the temps drop below freezing, and there's nothing to worry about with the MXZ 303. The upper is Pittards full-grain leather, which is not only incredibly durable, but it will break in for a perfect fit as well. The outsole is a Vibram offering, with a high-grip rubber compound for walking through snow drifts. Lake also employs Outlast heat reflective technology in the heel and tongue liner. The Outlast inserts retain heat from your feet, releasing it back into the boot when the temperature drops. In other words, they'll keep you warmer for longer. Granted, it shouldn't be an issue, thanks to the 3M Thinsulate insert in the toe box, which blocks wind and keeps your digits warm. And as if this all weren't enough, the insole takes advantage of Thermosol composite insulation. In case it wasn't obvious, these are built to handle everyday winter riding for everything short of an Arctic expedition.

Getting snow in your shoes can quickly get the better of even the warmest boots, but with an over-ankle neoprene cuff, that won't be a concern. There's a leather flap where you'd typically find laces, which serves to block out wind and moisture. It's held tight by a BOA ratchet, which enables easy fine tuning of your fit, without the risk of coming loose mid ride. And a buckle holds the ankle flap in place, yet again adding protection. As you'd expect, it's compatible with standard two-hole mountain cleats. If you refuse to hang up the bike just because there's a little snow on the ground, this could very well be the answer you've been looking for.

The Lake MXZ 303 Winter Boots are available in whole and half sizes from 38 to 50, with a wide option available in whole sizes from 38 to 48. The boots come in the colors Black/yellow and Black/silver.

Love these shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I absolutely love wearing these shoes. Toes were warm and dry this winter. I do not like cold feet and these were the solution! I rode in negative 4 degress and my feet were happy.

Love at first sight

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

First impressions after a few rides. I normally wear Sidi Dominator 44 mega and the Lake 44 wides are an identical fit. The shoe did not get wet after stepping down multiple times in wet snow ( unlike my sidi's) and were warm when pedaling. However, my feet did get cold (17F) on the down hill sections (which were pretty long, face got frosty too). I think some chemical toe warmers will help this next time. But each time I started pedaling back uphill they warmed up. The lacing system is awesome, I was initially worried about this. They are not bulky and are super comfy, I basically do not know they are there. I tried the Sidi Diablo's and did not like them. Would highly recommend the lakes for cold/wet trail riding in the snow.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

If you're going to pay MSRP for these Lakes, then you should definitely also look at the 45NRTH Wolvhammer boot.

My friends all swear by their Lakes ... until it hits about 15-20F.. and then they start swearing AT them.
