Lake CX145 Winter Road Boot 2018 £195.00
Wet cold training rides do not have to be miserable anymore. The Lake CX145 is the answer for those Autumn or spring chilly road rides. Developed for mild wet weather the CX145 is just the right shoe for those days when your race shoes are not warm enough. The upper features waxed canvas water resistant leather and a waterproof membrane making this a highly water resistant cycling shoe great in various conditions. The waxed canvas provides a classic look that has not only great water resistance but is also breathable so that the breathable membrane does actually breath.
The CX145 boot uses Lake's CX/TX Sport last. The higher cadence and longer ride times which characterize road cycling require excellent foot control to avoid hot-spots and numbness. With a much closer fit than any of Lake's off-road lasts, their Sport last cradles the foot securely to prevent any unwanted movement. This last features a precisely fitted toe-box, high arch & mid width ball girth.
The sole of the CX1 is made from Lake Competition fiberglass-injected nylon. The sole has a 3 hole cleat pattern to fit Look and Shimano road pedals.The shoe upper on the CX145 uses a mix of waxed Canvas, Leather and a Waterproof membrane for a highly water resistant upper. The CX145 is fastened using a dual Side mounted Push/Pull BOA IP1 lacing system with releasable guides.
About Lake Cycling Shoes
Lake have been making cycling shoes since 1982. As they like to point out they are one of the few cycling shoe brands who do nothing but manufacture cycling shoes. Lake are based in Michigan and their winter shoes are designed to withstand the freezing temperatures that they get there.
One of the things that makes Lake shoes different is the range of lasts that they use. The ‘last’ is the mold that shoes are made around. Lake have 9 different lasts (plus wide fit versions) allowing them to tailor their shoes to different types of cycling. So, for instance, they have mountain bike lasts designed for riders who may need to negotiate a hike-a-bike section, ones for all day comfort and ones designed for racing. This makes Lake’s shoes among the most comfortable available in the cycling market.
