The Lake CX332 Road Shoe is a classic design with modern elements such as Dual BOA closure & a light weight carbon sole system. The CX332 also draws from the same Thermaform technology as found in the CX403.
The Internal heel counter is heat moldable carbon that gives the option to better customize the heel hold. A secure heel hold will stabilize the foot and eliminate heel slip. A stable foot allows for more power transfer and less fatigue. Form fitting Natural leather upper in combination with the dual BOA closure system ensures that your foot will be secure without needing to over tighten the shoe.
The CX332 utilizes Lake's patented double sole system. The inner sole is a semi flexible fiberglass platform that allows some flexibility at the ball of the foot where the foot tends to swell, and typically hot spots or numbness would occur. The inner sole is suspended over the outer rigid carbon sole. This system enables the CX332 to use an extremely stiff carbon outsole without sacrificing riding comfort.
CX/TX RACE Last – Featuring a slightly narrower toe box & tighter heel than the Competition last and less overall volume than the Sport last. Designed for very high-cadence riding & higher pressure and a slimmer fit.
Now available in Extra Wide, equivalent to that of a EEE width!

The Lake Cycling CX332 extra wide are the most comfortable cycling shoe I have ever used! I plan to buy a second pair in a different color just to be able to rotate them. Use their sizing guide if you have to buy your shoes online. I used the sizing guide, ordered them online and they fit great. I have ridden them for 1,000+ miles and recommend them to anyone with wide feet. I also use the Mid-Foot Cycling cleat plates to move the cleats back toward the heel. These shoes allow me to ride longer stints than ever before!
Having come back to cycling after some time away in the martial arts, I found my feet having issues with numbness after an hour, so I measured my feet, and realized that lake were the shoe to buy. I have these in the white in extra wide, and they are absolutely perfect. The support is incredible, they feel like they were made for my feet, and even only lightly tightened there is no heel slip. no pinching, no numbness, and I can pull through the upward part of the pedal stroke as I can now feel my feet. Now all I need is a winter pair, a gravel pair and a pair of 302's for winter work on the trainer as I don't want to soak this lovely leather every evening indoors.
I did my bike fit last year and the fitter let me try these with g8 performance insoles (45.5 and wide), it fits like custom moulded. After so many hours and miles now I could rock these whole day without feeling any hotspots or discomfort, and they have extremely good support across the shoe to let me put my power out, build quality holds up as well.
These shoes are extremely nice and the first for my foot is perfect.
I tried a couple of different brands till i found in lake shoes a comfortable and for me best fitting brand with the possibility of a wide model for more space. I rode my first lake shoes for 5 years and the quality is superb. The design und colours are quite appealing.
The only negative aspect to mention is the weight. Its quite a heavy shoe but i think the material is well chosen. Next time i would like to see a lightweight version with same design. The mesh version didn‘t appeal to me.
