Lake has launched its second custom fit model of cycling shoes for 2012. Named CX331, this road cycling shoe features a minimalist side-mount design and a Boa closure system that holds the feet tight for maximum comfort during intense riding activities.
Like the CX331 shoes, the women-specific version named CX331W has internal carbon fiber heel counters, which effectively form the shoe to the rider’s foot after it is heated. A standard oven can be used for heating the shoe before manually shaping it around the heel to optimize a custom fit.
Lining the tongue and heel of the 2012 Lake CX331 and CX331W Road Cycling Shoes is a material called Outlast Smart Fabric. This material offsets body temperature change. The shoes also feature an all-carbon three-hole college paper and Kangaroo leather mesh upper.
