MX238 SuperCross Cycling Shoe

As cyclocross continues to be refined as a sport and differentiate itself from other off-road disciplines, Lake pursues progress towards the ideal cyclocross shoe. And the MX238 SuperCross stands as a benchmark in cyclocross-centric design to help keep you pacing out consistently powerful laps. In the worst of conditions, when you're layered with mud and scraping debris against your crank arms, the durable Helcor Abrasion resistant leather maintains its strength and performance. Off the bike the Hook Lycra heel liner holds tight as you clamber up steep levy walls. And slipping and sliding are minimized with the Claw Spike, at the front of the MX238, providing traction that you don't have to add accessory toe-spikes to achieve.

  • Cyclocross-focused carbon shoe that pushes performance
  • Abrasion-resistant leather upper braces for a full CX season
  • Carbon fiber sole with racing-specific rubber for performance grip
  • Boa dials for pressure-point free comfort
  • Integrated Claw Spike for traction in the fun stuff

How to Measure:
Take your foot measurement In a standing position while wearing your cycling socks.
Step 1: Trace your foot onto a sheet of paper.
After you trace your foot take a ruler and make a line to mark the furthest point on all four sides.
Step 2: Length measurement.
Use a millimeter ruler to get the measurement of the longest distance from heel to longest toe (first or second toe).
Step 3: Width measurement.
Use a millimeter ruler to get the measurement of the widest distance of foot from side to side.
Step 4: Repeat steps for other foot as your feet may be different sizes.
Typically you will want shoes that accommodate your largest foot the most comfortably.
Add 5mm to your actual length measurement to get recommended size.
Please Note: for accurate measurement please obtain a 3 digit millimeter measurement. Accurate measurements cannot be obtained from only 2 digits.

Great for wide feet, but....

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great fit for wide feet, but the laces from the BOA closure closest to my ankle dig into the top of my foot causing discomfort. To get relief, I have to have just about zero tension in the laces which leads to the heel coming out of the shoe. The front BOA closure works fine and the laces don't cause any discomfort. With an old pair of Specialized S-Works shoes, I cut out the padding from the tongue of the shoes and put it under the tongue of the MX238s - the pain went away regardless of the tension I put into the BOA. Great! Now, I'd have to pay a cobbler to put more padding in the tongue of these shoes to make them wearable. Unfortunately, I did not discover this until putting the cleats on and riding for an hour. Wearing them around the house did not reveal the problem. Don't make the mistake I have made. The thin BOA laces will cut into your foot without adequate padding to disperse the tension from the cables.

good but not for me (too heavy, bad fit)

I returned this product before using it

Purchased the MX238. For reference, the styling is slightly different than the pics shown on CC. Ended up returning for two reasons. One, size 50 was too large for me (and they don't make a 49... only 48, 50). Second, these shoes were much heavier than I expected. They are sturdy, for each shoe is north of 500g without a cleat. Compared to my size 50 Shimano RX8 shoes, that's over 150g more per shoe. The main issue with the fit is the heal sliding up due to the shoe being too large. Shoes do look well constructed though and was happy with no noticeable hot spots with the sole when walking around.

Nice shoe, weird fit

I had a pair of the older MX237 that fit great, but unfortunately fell apart. I got these in a 40.5 and 41 and tried both but the fit was strange. Too much room in heal made things feel loose as a goose and could not get either to do the job. Luckily the people at Backcountry were super cool and let me exchange for a pair of Shimanio's that seem to be a better fit for my wide food and narrow heal.

There are mx238 and mx 238 supercross...supercross is much smaller than the regular mx238. The picture on the website is of the regular mx238 not the supercross.
