Why We Like The Lake CX242 Wide Cycling Shoe

The Lake CX242 Wide Cycling Shoe is built to accommodate all foot shapes, from ultra-high arches to shoe-busting bunions, while still giving us the high-performance features we demand from a race-level shoe. The six independent upper panels allow for a secure fit no matter how weirdly shaped our feet are, and the 100% carbon fiber sole delivers uncompromising power transfer, so we can really drop the hammer and drop the peloton too.

Bolts keep stripping.

I've put it through the wringer

Shoes are super comfortable. Arch support is a bit excessive and I get plantar fasciitis with tough efforts. The bolts keep stripping when I install new cleats. Customer service from Lake has been less than stellar.

Most comfortable shoe ever!

I've put it through the wringer

I have very wide, duck-foot shaped feet with prominent bunions. I wear Altra sneakers most of the time and have my ski boots punched to accommodate my bunions. Owned a pair of Lake 219 Wides but then got hit and trashed my shoes in the process. Went for the CX242 Wides as replacements and man, if I'd only known.... These are, without doubt, the most comfortable bike shoe I've used in 35 years of riding. Independent strap for forefoot accommodates my bunion and more squared-off toe box leaves room for the other toes. Inner sole is pretty supportive and outersole is rigid enough for pretty serious recreational rider (100-125 miles a week). If you have problematic feet of the wide type, I highly recommend these. They are spendy for an amateur, but worth every penny -- especially as the miles pile up. I never knew the 219's subtly cramped my feet, but these made me relax my toes. I upsized 1/2 a size, but not sure if that's the shoes or my aging, enlarging feet.

Fantastic Fit

I've put it through the wringer

This is one of the most comfortable cycling shoes I've ever worn. I have a wide forefoot and narrow heel, and need a wide toe box. The 242 in a wide has a noticeably wider toe box than the standard width 242, and is the first cycling shoe that has fit my feet well. I also have a bony protrusion in the side of my foot that makes a standard shoe difficult to fit, and the adjustability of the 242 solves my problem. The shoes are very well made, and combined with the great fit make for a terrific shoe.
