There's no better fit than custom.
Sitting atop Lake’s cycling footwear hierarchy are the CX402 Shoes, and we have to admit, they certainly fit the bill. With a kangaroo leather upper, prized for its durability and suppleness, and a moldable Custom Fit carbon fiber sole, you’re all but guaranteed a fit that’s second to none. Of course, the dual Boa closures only enhance the supreme foot retention, and ensure that nary a watt is wasted when you get on the gas.
Lake worked long and hard on building the CX402's 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 Shoe is available in whole and half sizes from 39 to 47, plus whole sizes 48 and 50, and in the colors Black/black, Red/black, and White/black. Wide fit is available in all sizes in the color Black/black. Please note that the CX402 is also available in a Speedplay-specific model.
