CX/TX Sport – The higher cadence & longer ride times which characterize road cycling require excellent foot control to avoid hot-spots & numbness. With a much closer fit than any of our off-road lasts, our 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.Tip for keeping your shoes Water resistant: The uppers are treated from the factory with a DWR (Durable Water Resistant) coating that will ware away over time and use. Like many other water-resistant products, to help keep the shoe uppers from absorbing water that could migrate into the shoe, it is recommended to reapply the upper with a DWR spray which are readily available at most stores that sell outdoor products. We recommend reapplying the coating 1-2 times a year for moderate riders and for heavy use or daily commuter riders reapply at least after every 2-3 extreme wet rides. For best result follow the instructions from the DWR manufacture on how to reapply the coatings.

I was forced to replace my 10+ yo lake “ cold weather “ road shoe, due to just plain wearing them out. I called into Lake for help and was given great guidance on replacement fit. I ended up going to a wide shoe ( wear a 44 Reg/D typically) and after a few rides of break in I’m glad I did. The shoes were a little snug at first , but after ~100 miles they have broken in and the fit is great. Ridden in the 40’s with light drizzle and my feet were perfect , even dare I say warm.( I always have cold feet).
