Stop squishing your wide feet into medium width shoes and telling yourself it's fine. One look at the rolling topography of your feet should give you a hint about the bunion filled future you have ahead of you if you don't start giving your tootsies some breathing room when you ride. And really, it's as easy as buying Lake's CX 237 Wide Road Shoe. Exactly the same as its hardworking mid range CX237 shoe, the wide version gives you an additional 15mm of pressure relieving bliss compared to the regular width, so you can actually let your toes splay out and take advantage of their strength when you're pedaling. Just like the regular width model, Lake builds the CX237 wide on its Competition last, which provides a contoured fit to capitalize on power transfer from the ball of your foot. You'll be able to drive power straight through to the pedals using the unyielding carbon sole, while two micro adjustable Boa dials give you the ability to make infinite adjustments to the fit of the heel and forefoot so you get a secure fit without sacrificing circulation. As if that weren't enough, Lake takes the high road and constructs the uppers of the CX 237 using full grain leather, accented by airy mesh paneling to make sure your feet can still breathe inside the shoe.
