Evolving from the CX237, Lake has improved upon performance and durability, with its high-cadence riding favorite, the Lake CX238 Road Shoe.

Shaped for a better, more comfortable fit, the Competition last increases toe pitch and heel lift, allowing the foot to expand under high pedaling pressure. Supporting the shoe is Lake's Race carbon fiber sole, offering impressive stiffness and power transfer while remaining low in weight. To protect the shoe from premature wear, the full-grain leather upper boasts a panel at the heel and a rubber bumper at the toe, plus mesh panels for proper ventilation.

Designed for high-pressure riding, the Lake CX238's wider forefoot provides the relief you need to focus on the road ahead.

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.

Lake Competition 100% Carbon Fiber Sole. Available in a 3-hole cleat pattern.

Fullgrain Water Resistant Premium Leather or Clarino Microfiber and Outlast heel lining. Helcor heel panel and rubber toe bumper helps protect the upper from scuffs and scratches. Outlast temperature regulating heel and tongue lining offers a luxurious foot feel, while maintaining a breathable, durable & firm grip to your foot.

BOA® Fit System Li2 dials. The Li2 dial is the most advanced platform in cycling, offering a precise, micro-adjustable fit in both directions and designed to resist abrasion.

DISCLAIMER: Shoes may ship with IP1 dials

Great shoes but…

I recently purchased a pair of the CX238 in size 42.5 wide. The length and the width are perfect for my foot after a long time buying cycling shoes that were too long because I have a wide foot for the length. Lake Cycling’s customer service is top notch after having ordered a pair in 42 that were too small and had to return them.
My only gripe with these shoes, and the reason I knocked off a star, is that I would have preferred the shoe to not have a reinforced front toe box and just the faux leather material. On both my feet, the outside of my big toe rubs on it a bit but getting a size up would’ve made the shoe too big.

These are just perfect. Didn't think I needed wide fit until the pain in my crushed toes forced me to get my feet properly measured. Was also advised to go up half size. Super-comfy to wear all day. Will be back for some winter shoes later. Can't rate these shoes highly enough. Love them.

They fit perfectly and I would recommend getting the carbon insoles that can be molded easily. I'd give five stars but have done minimal miles due to injury

Does not breathe

This is my third pair of CX238. I’ve been wearing them since 2015. The fit is perfect for my wide, high arched feet. IMHO the uppers on the current version have been changed for the worse. The previous versions felt lighter and didn’t retain sweat like these do. I ride in tropical conditions. Water literally pours out of my shoes when I take them off after a long ride. I wish Lake made the CX238 with a mesh upper.

Great Shoe

Why didn't I buy these sooner? Love how they fit and feel while providing excellent support. Super comfortable.
Buy them.
