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.

You get the build quality you expect for a couple hundo, but what I FINALLY found in a cycling shoe is a real foot-shaped foundation. I feel like squeezing my feet into most shoes is like trying to fit a triangle into a hollowed out cucumber, but Lake REALLY nailed the foot-shaped shoe. I was a little worried when I first put these on because they were so snug, but I realized that they weren’t squeezing my feet, just holding them (which is obviously ideal for responsiveness). I’ve been on other shoe brands that change the formula, but as long as Lakes quality and sizing basis doesn’t change I will be buying exclusively from here for life.
