Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these shoes thinking I'd use them for commuting, but they are so comfortable, light and stiff that I use them for everything, including longer rides and racing. My previous shoes were high-end Sidis with the heel lock. The Shimanos are a very different fit - less glove-like but a roomier toe box. The result is I'm less likely to get hot spots on long rides since my feet are more relaxed. I went with the standard width despite having wide feet. A 47 fits my size 12 feet very well. Oh, and they're significantly lighter than my Sidis, and much easier to walk in.

I have the 'cross version of these shoes, which are completely different than the mountain version. They are extremely light, stiff and comfortable thanks to the thermo-molding. I've had mine a little over two seasons and the boa unit recently tore off the side of one shoe similar to what is shown for the mountain version below. I figured they were toast, but Lake steered me to Boa for a free and quick repair, even though my shoes were slightly beyond the warranty period. Yes it would be great if this didn't happen but they are great shoes nonetheless.

Lake did it's customers a disservice by giving two very different shoes the same model name. The lighter orange/black shoe is their 'cross-specific version with minimal tread, lighter weight, and a different fit from the other version that is more oriented toward mountain biking. I own both versions. The 'cross version is extremely stiff, comfortable and light, and so far excellent. The mountain version are a bit narrower, noticeably heavier, still stiff, and so far problem-free but not quite as sweet as the 'cross version.
