CX/TX Competition Last – With a profile specifically designed for very high-cadence riding & higher pressure, our Competition last features a more curved profile than the Sport last. The main differences include increased toe pitch & heel lift, a tighter heel & a slightly wider ball girth to allow the foot to expand under high pedaling pressures.

I have smashed my wide-ish feet into a lot of uncomfortable shoes over the years. These aren't. They fit, and they're comfortable and efficient right out the box. That's never happened before. Tightened right, they feel like part of my foot. Awesome.
Product description is a problem. The wide CX238 is perceptibly wider than extra wide CX301.
Right out of the box, these shoes fit great! Extremely comfortable for all day rides. The two BOA system is good, better than one. No heel slippage. Highly recommend these shoes.
I've been through a lot of shoes - Giro, Spesh, DMT, and most recently Bont. I put them through the wringer. I raced a lot of crits, circuits, and road races in them. I thought I knew what a good shoe felt like. Over the pandemic, I put on some serious pounds and, all of a sudden, my feet were killing me on longer rides. In particular, my Taylor's bunions were out of control. I was about to throw in the towel, but I decided to get proper shoe fit. As soon as I put these on, my foot relaxed. The fit was amazing. After a couple of hours of messing around with cleat positions, wedges, and pedal extenders my spirit was restored. These shoes are the real deal - comfortable, highly competent, and quality. You can do anything in these shoes, especially the really hard stuff. I only wish I knew about them sooner.
whenever I have a chance to recommend cycling shoes to clients during bikefits. the first that comes to my mind are lake shoes. they fit so well. having a slightly wider fit than most of the brands in the market and also having a wider option is great stuff!
Love these shoes! Super comfortable but wondering if there is something for the heel to tighten up as there is a little slippage.
