I am 52 years and have ridden and raced bikes almost my entire life. As a former Cat 1 cyclist, I have tried and used many different shoes, including custom made shoes that are VERY expensive. A friend of mine, who is still very active in the sport recommended LAKE shoes to me and after an internet search I found them here at Competitive Cyclist. I contacted Kyle with a ton of questions as I was unsure of my size and decided to try the Lake CX237. When they arrived 2 days later, I tired them on and realized that this shoe was built on a slightly larger last. This was explained in the description. I wear a size 10 Nike running shoe so I ordered the 44. The shoe was about a full size too big in the length and kind of wide to my liking. I contacted Kyle via Email and we again talked and I decided to go down a full size, but I also decided to try the CX332 since the description says it is built on a little bit narrow last. I was expecting to pay for shipping to return the first pair, but Kyle sent we a UPS label. The next shipment was a pair of CX332 and CX237. The CX237 fit great in the length, but again I felt they were too wide for my liking as I like my shoes to be a little tight in the width. (Probably because I'm use to all of the other brands that are built narrow to start) . I then tried on the CX332. These fit great in the width, but the length was a hair too small. I again contacted Kyle and ordered a 43.5 CX332 and shipped back the other 2 pairs of shoes. I received the 43.5 shoes today and they fit prefect. It was like someone made them for me.
I would like to thank Kyle for all his hard work in sending shoes back and forth for me and the great customer service I received from Competitive Cyclist. I will recommend you to all my friends when they ask me were to buy cycling products and you now have a new customer for life. I'll comment again once I have a few miles on these shoes.
Thanks again!
