Just not very warm. In 40F temps I come home with cold hands. Even though supposedly XXL, the thumbs are short, so thumbs get cold. No wind or water resistance. Would not recommend for serious cold riding, or any other kind of riding, come to think of it. Maybe OK for shoveling snow, but the price is awful high for driveway gloves. Glad they were at discount.

I never actually used these, only tried them on in the store, and am only reviewing them to point out that the thumbs are poorly articulated, and that it takes effort to reach for the shifter. Otherwise I would have gladly paid the $$$ these cost, as they were great-looking, have excellent features, and are very comfortable. Fit is excellent, as to finger length and around the hand fit. Settled for some gloves half the price, but better articulated.

I have about ten rides on these, and am very happy with them. I have big wide feet, size 14, and these in size 49 fit me very nicely. The fit is generous, and I added a thin flat insole under the stock one, to fill some space. Thus, they work fine with heavier winter cycling socks. The footbeds are quite good, as stock footbeds go, best of any cycling shoe I've tried. The Vibram sole and the walkability make these perfect for the hiking I end up doing. They almost don't feel like cycling shoes when walking, but they are plenty stiff in the sole.
I only have one complaint: the fit is a bit loose around the ankle, and there is a small amount of shifting and heel slip when hiking. This could be solved by moving the BOA closure toward the toe, and adding an adjustable instep strap. The Velcro strap over the toes doesn't really do much, and could be eliminated.
Minor heel-slip aside, these are all-around the most comfortable and best-fitting mtn biking shoes I ever had, and I'm very happy with them!

...as they are top grain leather, have beautiful workmanship, look great, have a grippy rubber sole, and actually FIT my wide feet. I could even live with the silly BOA closure system, which I am very skeptical of. But, as the poet teaches us, between the Idea and the Reality falls the Shadow. In a word, heel slip. Lots of heel slip. Not a single pair of any shoes I own slip like these. The heel is entirely lacking any "cup." The top also pushed painfully against my ankle bone, even with high arch foot beds. Returned without usung, much to my sadness.

I would love to own pair of these. Nothing fits like genuine leather, and these are top-grain leather, not pleather or action leather or any other leather-ish stuff. But alas! Lake only makes sizes 39 through 48, then 50, skipping size 49! (My size.) Furthermore, backcountry doesn't have any size bigger than 47. All I can do is keep pestering Lake and backcountry, until they get what I need. Thus this review.

The fit is not very good. The heel slides up and down when walking. They seem to run medium in width, as they are tight on my wide feet. Size 49s weigh 1063g without cleats, 95g heavier than my old shoes. I like the two Velcro straps and instep strap with tensioner. The sole is a nice soft rubber, which is a plus. They are OK, but I will look for something with better fit. Returned without using.
