Why We Like The CX302 Cycling Shoe

For high-cadence riding, serious cyclists, and those who prefer a slimmer fit, the CX302 Wide Cycling Shoe does the job and does it well. We like that it has a slightly narrower toe box and tighter heel for support, and the carbon fiber sole that increases power transfer and efficiency. But, don't be fooled into thinking this setup makes any sacrifices for comfort. With this shoe, we can ride for miles on end with speed and purpose.

Great fit, materials could use an update

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

Listening to stories about other people's feet is boring but the tl;dr of mine is that I've got narrow heels but don't mind a little room in the toe box. Most of the higher-end road shoes have gone super wide due to a vocal market demographic (at least according to what I'm reading on the internets) so I've been trying a bunch recently and wanted to share my experience. I was interested to try these Lake shoes because folks were complaining about them being too narrow, which is usually a good sign for me. Comparing them to other shoes I've worn recently (Shimano RC903 - too wide, Spesh S-Works 7 -- great but not made anymore, S-Works Torch -- too wide for me), they were a bit different than I expected. In terms of shape, the fit is pretty excellent, probably on the narrow side and they work pretty well for my feet. They don't offer that extra toe box room that some of the more modern fits offer and honestly I kind of learned to like that in the S-Works 7. Another big difference between the shoes I've listed is the materials. The leather upper is almost patent-leather-glossy, as a result they're super stiff out of the box and not in a good way. Compared to other manufacturer's models using Dynema or similar lightweight synthetics they're way less "foot conforming" and kind of notibably squeak around while riding. I imagine they might soften up over time, but after a couple hundred miles they're still pretty squeaky. Less of a concern but the sole is also some super high gloss carbon, rather than the matte that most modern shoes are using. The result is a little more slippery when walking and a little squeaky against the pedal as well (using SPD-SL cleat that are usually pretty quiet). The BOA dials are nice but pretty much table stakes these days, and they don't get all that tight due to the stiffness of the upper material. BOAs aside, materials-wise they remind me of shoes that were on the market 10-15 years ago, and they're not all that light as a result (esp for a "climbing shoe"). The quality seems great but the approach seems antiquated. It would be great to see Lake adapt this fit with more modern materials.
