Having recently returned to cycling after a lengthy break, pain from squeezing my nerve damaged feet into a standard cycling shoe was leading me to rethink my comeback. Thanks to the Lake Team and their MX238 Wide micro adjustable BOA fastening system, gravel and mountain biking is an option again.
MX 238 Wide
To be honest, I have yet to use my new MX 238. My gravel event begins in November. However, the fitting seems quite good. The ordering process was smooth. My special circumstance - an expat in Shanghai China - makes Lake supply from China super convenient for me. Otherwise, it is very difficult for me to find quality cycling shoes in China that are my size. By the way, the Shanghai cycling community is quite large and I believe knowing that Lake shoes can be sourced from China will be highly welcome.
