MX145 Cycling Shoes
Nothing shuts down the fun on a snow-bike adventure faster than cold, wet feet. If you plan on putting a respectable number of miles atop your fat bike this winter, you'll need to invest in some dedicated footwear. It makes all the difference in the world. Lake has been making winter-specific cycling shoes for a few years now, so it already has the concept pretty well dialed in. That started with the MXZ303 winter biking boot, but honestly, it's overkill unless you're doing some very serious, very cold fat biking. For most of us, the MX145 mid-weight winter cycling shoe will do very nicely.
The MX145 starts with MX Sport Last featuring a larger and roomier toe-box than the Comfort last and provides increased foot control through the heel and forefoot. Its sole is relatively stiff for efficiency and features a Hypergrip Enduro outsole with Ice Lock anti-slip lug inserts. This combination has the stiffness to put power to the pedals and offers plenty of traction off the bike as well. The uppers are a highly water-resistant waxed canvas and leather, and Lake employs a waterproof membrane to seal out the elements.
The dual BOA IP1 closures have been quickly adopted by the professional ranks due to the fact that it offers easy fine-tuning, and it stays snug throughout your entire ride. And since you're able to independently adjust the tension on the forefoot and the heel, you can lock down your heel, without having to over-tighten the rest of the shoe. And as you probably know, this means better blood flow and greater comfort.
