Don't settle for sore feet.

The Lake MX237 Shoes may be built to maximize efficiency, but a host of thoughtful features make them far more comfortable than their race-bred heritage might lead you to believe. Sure, Lake’s extensive experience helps it to channel every last watt to your pedals, but the dual Boa closure gives you tons of fine tuning, and the full grain leather upper breaks in like your favorite leather slippers. Granted, you probably won’t want to wear them around the house, but when you’re dropping the hammer, they’re a much better option.

The key to the MX237s' power transfer lies in Lake’s Competition last. Like the moldable CFC last used in the MX331, the Competition last is designed to focus your power output into the ball of your foot, and straight through to the pedal. And while efficiency is key, there’s added room in the toe box to allow for foot expansion under hard efforts. And it all rests on Lake’s stiff Race carbon fiber sole. The result is a comfortable fit, packaged in a highly efficient shoe.

The dual Boa closure has been quickly adopted by the professional ranks due to the fact that it offers easy fine-tuning, and it stays tight throughout your entire ride. And since you’re able to independently adjust 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, that means better bloodflow and greater comfort. The Boa closure runs underneath the full grain leather upper, enhanced with mesh panels to maximize foot-cooling airflow.

The Lake MX237 Shoes - Men's are available in whole and half sizes, from 39 to 47, plus whole sizes 48 and 50, and in the colors Black/black and Orange/black. All sizes from 40 up are available in Wide in the color Black/black.

  • Full grain leather uppers mold to your foot over time
  • Race Carbon sole
  • Competition last
  • Dual-boa closure
  • Two-hole cleat compatibility

Not a mountain shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

No shoe with a Boa on the side should be considered a mountain shoe. If you scrape against a rock or hit a log and the little plastic things snap right off. Shoe cost $300 and lasted 4 months. Big disappointment.

Fits like a slipper

  • Size Bought: 47

I have had several different MTB shoes from multiple brands. This MX237 is by far the most comfortable cycling shoe I have ever put on. The leather is soft and doesn't need broken in to feel nice. Venting is great and I don't have issues with hot feet. The tread on the soles is the most gripping rubber of any MTB shoe I have worn. It is very secure on rocks and roots. All in all, this is a great shoe.
They run a little larger than other cycling shoes with a roomy toe box. Check Lake's fit guide on their site for info.

Awesome shoes. Cant wait for CX.Road too

Once you go double BOA, you will never go back to velcro straps or fiddly ratchet things that you cant do up fast or adjust on a ride/race. Only thing I would improve on the current Lakes is being able to loosen the BOA without popping the button up and losing almost all tension. Other shoes allow you to tension and loosen without releasing the BOA dial. The soles grip very well on steep climbs and over all kinds of rock, roots, gravel etc. Feels like you are standing on a aircraft carrier deck. No more worries about brusing arches standing on your pedal for dismount (which was horrible on another brand). Rock solid platform. Orange. Cool.

Great comfort/performance, ok durability

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these March 2015. I will admit I ride a lot, usually about 6 hrs/week, but less than 2 years later the heel cups of both shoes are shredded to the point that they're not usable anymore.

This was my third pair of Lake shoes over my 20 years of mtn biking and the first pair that fell apart. I tried emailing and calling customer service at Lake and never even got a response.

Despite the failure, they were comfortable from the first ride and I really have put them through hell it's just that my previous Lake shoes held up better. But all that aside, I am going to buy another pair as they were the best performing shoes I've ever had.

I have really narrow feet. The regular width was ok for me although I tended to have to nearly max out the BOA adjusters especially once the shoes had "warmed up" after a good 1/2 hour of pedaling. But the ability to adjust the tension while on the bike is amazing. It only happened a couple of times but I did have the BOA come loose on me in the middle of some high speed chunky downhill sections which was not confidence inspiring. It may be because my feet are so narrow and I had the adjusters tightened as far as they'd go. On my next pair I might experiment with a thicker foot bed.

I wear a 10 or 10.5 street shoe depending on brand and a 44.0 regular fit me perfectly in length.

Too big.

  • Fit: Runs large

Nicely made but i'll never know if they're any good. Seriously giant toe box. size down 1/2-1 full size. Look at sizing on Lake website, which I see now, is accurate, competitive cyclist is not. I am a size 9 US and need at least a 42 if not 41.5

Second Review

    Had a pair that is still going, but are getting a bit worn so I purchased a new pair. Same great lake quality and love the boa. Can't go wrong with these. Fit a little larger and had to take up a little space with a thicker insole.

    My favorite mtb shoe!!

    • Size Bought: 45

    I've tried em all and for me these are the best quality, comfort, fit and look I've ever worn. I used to go for snug fit and wondered why at the end of a ride my toes were numb and hurting. I have a narrow foot and wear a size 11 USA and the 45 in the Lake feels a tiny bit roomy in the toe area when I start, but it's so nice after a few hours having room. The boa system doesn't allow the fit to be sloppy. I love the orange and am about to get some black for the days my kit has lots or red in it. Orange and red doesn't work for me. Great shoe!!

    Good quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 44

    The boa system provides a great fit although I find myself re adjusting mid ride and occasionally one of the boa dials does pop up and lose tension. I've had other boa shoes that do not have this problem, no idea if it's my riding or inherent to the shoe. I use these as a daily ride shoe and my first experience with leather. That being said I find the leather does stretch and has become very comfortable, custom almost but as with leather it does scuff, large and small, kinda expected. Color is awesome, sole is awesome and stiff, tread on bottom is robust enough for hiking up small sections of trail. I had to size down considerably, I usually ride a 45.5 or 45, 10.5- 11 and ended up with a 44, a little tight but has stretched. I had sworks before and got 2 1/2 yrs before they were unrideable, I expect 2 out of these. Weight is not feather light but light enough, doesn't feel bulky on the foot. I have a narrow foot and bought the regular, fits fine.

    I just purchased these. excellent quality and fit. I'm a 10.5, however, I felt the 44.5 a bit snug in length, so went with the 45. I had some heel lift minor with the 45, but considering the foot swell during long rides, I figured the 45 made more sense.

    Great Shoes

    Not the lightest out there, but have good tread for that occasional hike a bike. Love the boa closure, but couldn't get them snug enough out of the box. Purchased a thicker footbed and that did the trick. Mostly ride AM with some XC racing mixed in, great for both! Size 10.5 street shoe and purchased a 44.5.

    Love 'em

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been having the hardest time finding mountain shoes but these may be what I've been looking for all this time. They're stiff and so comfy. At first when I put them on, the tow box and forefoot felt a little wide. Don't worry about that. Ride in them for 3 hours and you'll see that your dogs are comfy and happy.

    I'm a size 14 street shoe and wear a 48 in these. They're pretty close to perfect.

    What other shoes have you worn in the past? Did you get the regular size or the wide?

    Specialized, Shimano, Mavic, DMT...

    I got the regular.

    Unanswered Question

    I have a pair of dmt lynx in a 43, and they are pretty darn tight. Would a 43.5 in these be looser, or should I go with a 44?

    Does the Orange comes in Wide?

    Best Answer

    Hey Luisma,

    The Orange is offered in a wide last, however we currently do not have any of the wide last in stock in the Orange color.

    Oops

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    Looks like Lake's quality assurance department forgot to put the final stamp of approval on the shoes I received. The closure system was not sewn in to the leather and when I tried them on for the first time, the mechanism just pulled out. I don't know how to attach a second photo to this review, but the other shoe is fine, so it's definitely a flaw. Otherwise, the fit is good.

    Oops

    Awesome shoe

    I've used these a ton. They're great. They fit snugly which I'm a big fan of. The color is great and vibrant. They've held up well during mountain bike season. Really like the locking mechanism that they used in place of laces.

    Big Feet Friendly

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a very wide foot, these shoes are fantastic! I have gone through 3 other brands; sidi mega, specialized wide, and northwave. None of them have fit as well as these do. Will definitely be buying them again

    Did you get the wide version or the regular version?

    Sorry guys, I got the wide version! Tried Sidi, Northwave, Specialized, and Giro. These are hands down the best fitting shoes i've ever owned
