The Lake CX402's are the pinnacle for cycling shoes.
The Thermaform rear 1/4 alters the dynamics of pedalling creating one of the most stable platforms for high output cycling while also maintaining superior comfort. Lake’s Custom Fit Carbon platform provides heel lock and total foot stability like nothing else. Supple and form fitting Kangaroo leather is naturally lightweight and breathable. This creates an upper that forms to your foot naturally, which in turn allows your foot to maintain comfort throughout the ride.
Unique to Lake is their patent double sole system. The inner sole is a semi-flexible carbon fibre platform that allows the foot to have some flexibility at the ball of the foot where the foot tends to swell and hot spots would occur. The inner sole is suspended over the outer rigid carbon sole. This system enables us to use an extremely
stiff carbon outsole without sacrificing riding comfort.

Born in Evanston Illinois in 1982, Lake quickly became a household name for cycling shoes. As the sport grew in North America, so did the versatility and demand for more styles. The MXZ303 (winter boot) was created because of a very cold climate that hit Lake’s headquarters every year, the shores of Lake Michigan, where temperatures are quite possibly the coldest in North America. Many other innovative designs have come from Lake’s shoe collections over the years. More recently Lake was the first to design and produce the MX 331 Cyclocross specific model and today it remains the “holy grail” of cyclocross shoes.
Our pride has grown out of a simple fact, that we are first to market with many if not most new developments in cycling shoes. Unlike most companies in the marketplace, we haven’t been distracted by entering into different cycling product categories, we have remained true to our core value and that is to produce the best fitting, highest quality cycling shoe on the market.
