MX Sport Last – This last features a larger, more roomy toe-box than our Comfort last while providing increased foot control through the heel & saddle of the foot. The resulting fit is designed for aggressive riding while remaining comfortable to wear all day. Ideal for couriers, adventure cyclists & anyone else who wears their cycling shoes for long periods of time. MX177 offers incredible performance, stability and all day comfort. Feature for feature no other shoe can be compared to the MX177 in the same category.
Supergrip Enduro Sole with Ice Lock anti-slip lug inserts. What really makes the MX177 stand out is it’s amazing Fiberglass injected nylon sole. Lake’s nylon sole is world famous for it’s uncompromising comfort and performance. No other injected nylon sole offers the same level of stiffness or comfort. Combined with a real rubber sole, the MX177 is one of the most versatile cycling shoes available.

BOA® Fit System L6 dial. The L6 dial offers a precise, micro-adjustable fit, maximum impact protection and durability.
Comfy & wide, feels like they disappear out there (recumbent trike)
I have been riding in uncomfortable shoes forever, thinking that was normal. I'm so glad I tried these shoes - so glad that I ordered a pair of CX 177s for road - so now my feet are happy on pavement and gravel!
I’m 73 and have ’foot spread’. These Lakes are the most comfortable I’ve had. I’m recumbent triking now and I’m very happy with these shoes.
I used the size guide and got these in a 45W. I have moderately wide feet and wear 45 or 45W in just about everything. I agree with Ben in that that the toebox shape does not seem foot shaped. Not my foot anyway. They felt wide enough and long enough on initial try-on. I pedaled a few min on the trainer w/o cleats and they seemed good, so I mounted cleats. After about an hour on the road, I could feel my middle toes bunching up and tingling. After 2 hours, they were totally numb and my pinky toes were on FIRE. I tried shifting the cleats around, adjusting the BOA tension (extremely limited with just one BOA) but nothing worked. My feet still hurt a day later.
I previously had a pair of MX-238s which fit very well and got me through two TCRs. I bought the same size MX177 for an upcoming off-road Bikepacking event as I wanted something a little less stiff for the hike-a-bike. The length is fine and the width at the metatarsals is ok, but the toebox is pointy and not at all foot-shaped which results in some pressure on the toes and a bit of numbness. I doubt going to the wide version would work as the heel would then be too loose. Really don’t understand why Lake didn’t stick with the more rounded toebox found on the competition last. The single boa dial probably doesn’t help either - instead of making this only available as a lower cost model, why not provide a dual boa version for people that are willing to spend the money and still want a shoe that works for off-road ultras?
