Lake's line topping men's CX402 Wide Road Shoes are certainly worth all the praise that's been heaped on them from industry publications, professionals, and category racers alike. The fact they're available in a special wide last means that the big footed among us can also enjoy the customizable fit and sleek, understated aesthetics. Lake worked long and hard on building the CX402's ultra efficient Custom Fit carbon fiber sole. You may have had carbon soled shoes in the past that didn't quite fit, and if that's the case, you recognize that ultimate power transfer is meaningless if your feet are in agony. But you can say goodbye to the era of compromise, as these puppies are heat moldable, ensuring perfect fit and incredible heel hold. Best of all, with a personalized fit, you won't have to crank them down to keep your feet in place. The dual BOA closures only enhance the fit. By employing two Boa dials, Lake enables you to keep your heel locked down, without requiring undue pressure on the forefoot. And as you already know, that means better blood flow, and greater comfort. The BOA closures are hidden underneath the sleek kangaroo leather upper, which promises fantastic service life. Better yet, since kangaroo leather is among the thinnest, most durable types of leather around, they're incredibly supple and only get better with time. The perforations work in conjunction with mesh panels to maximize airflow, so your feet stay cool, instead of getting clammy.
