Rob M.wrote a review of Lake MX237 Wide Cycling Shoe - Men's on October 6, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
My feet are a little wide and I have always struggled to find shoes that were wide enough without being much longer than I need. Lake is one of a very few brands that delivers on the promise. I have ridden the shoes almost every day over the past 3 months for commutes and exercise rides in a good range of temperatures (Utah summer to Dutch fall) and have been very happy with one small caveat; the shoe is wide but the two box is not particularly large so my toenail can rub on the roof of the shoe. Fortunately, the shoe is leather in this area so it has broken in with time and I am finding a comfortable fit. I assume I can get the shoe stretched if the problem persists.
Other notable features include a nice, stiff sole but soft and rounded tread so that walking is acceptable while cycling efficiency is excellent. This is probably the 4th shoe like this I have had, all SPD with the idea of a commuting shoe that also worked on longer rides. The Lake is the best compromise I have found so far.
Size is something that I had to experiment with by purchasing three different sizes and keeping the best. Backcountry makes this option easy.
