Strengths:    Comfort
Looks
Aero-dynamic
Easy on-easy off
Durable
Easy-to-clean


Weaknesses:    Maybe give the soles a hole so we don't have to cut it out to install cleats?

Bottom Line:   
These are my first cycling shoes and it must just be beginner's luck, but they are far more then I thought I'd be getting. I really did not think that comfort was even possible in a cycling shoe with such hard soles. They are extremely comfortable, and the 43.5 fits my size 9 foot perfectly. They are good-looking (not black), and both the surface of the leather and the absence of velcro ties makes the shoe very aerodynamic
This is my second year using them.
The only thing that was a challenge was getting the sole out to cut a 1.5 x 1.5" hole to install my cleats (Speedplay G3), but if I can manage it, so can you.

Strengths:    High quality, fine materials, good fit, nice looks, very good Boa closure system

Weaknesses:    not much

Bottom Line:   
This is a great cycling shoe. It is not only great in its price range, but beats many shoes twice as expensive. The Boa lacing system works flawlessly and ensures a much better fit than any other closure-system I've tried before. The leather is smooth, high quality (you wouldn't expect real leather at this price range at all) and the fit is excellent, too, probably the most comfrotable cycling shoe I've ever used. I love the clean, no fuss looks. No carbon sole? Well I am not Fabian Cancellara, and I don't think the difference is big enough for me to tell.
All in all I give them five stars in all departments!!"

Lake CX170 vs CX190

I'm about to order a pair of 48 wide, and am looking for guidance to which of these people like better. Is the BOA lace system nice, or no so much? Any other pearls of wisdom? Anybody know of a screaming deal on a pair of 48 wide lake road biking shoes (black or silver)? ThanksRead More »
