I've had my MX177 Wide for a little over a month and worn them nearly every day. Similar to some other reviews, they are an improvement vs the prior MX176. There is now plenty of room for my toes, and they're just as easy for walking as the MX176. I cannot remember when I had such a comfortable shoe. In fact, today I just ordered another pair, to make sure I continue to have comfy shoes when these wear out. @LAKE, I don't mind if you change the BOA arrangement, but please stay with the current geometry.
Again,Lake shoes pull through for me.I have a 13 wide foot and these shoes fit perfect.A little loose in the heel while walking but on the bike they are perfect.
A superb upgrade from the mx176 which I found a little small in the toebox area. These are just wonderful. Great comfort for all day riding and hike-a-bike. stiff enough sole without being painfully rigid like the carbon ones can be. Add a good insole
and they are briliant shoes. The only thing I'd like to change - the boa dial. make it the 2-way version and these shoes would
be perfect :)
Bought these for more to box room. perfect. Second pair of Lake shoes (one road and one mtb) and they are both good quality, comfortable, good fit and just what I was looking for. No more numb big toe!!
I bought the wide size using the fit guides provided by Lake, and the width of the toebox and length of the shoe are fine. But the heel fit is much too loose and my heel pulls up whenever doing a bit of hike-a-bike or just walking. I wear other shoes that also are wide in the toebox, such as wide sizes of Oboz, Keens, Altra, and they all fit fine in the heel. Based on this pretty important fit parameter, the Lake shoe is for me disappointing.
Stiff sole MTB cycling shoes will have heel lift when walking, The foot wants to flex while walking, the shoe sole does not flex in Cycling shoes.
This is a common issue with MTB shoes with full length hard sole like the MX177.
Using a custom insole that lifts the heel in the shoe is sometimes a solution for people who want to walk a lot in stiff sole shoes.
