The Lake CX403 Road Cycling Shoes are at the top of their range. The lower overall volume of the CX Race last is ideal for high cadence, high pressure riding with a narrower toe box and tighter heel to prevent slipping when you're putting the power down. These shoes have several unique features: The upper utilises kangaroo leather that's incredibly light, breathable and supple, forming to your foot, that works together with carbon structural support panels for stability through the pedal stroke. The carbon fibre sole is customisable in the rear 1/4 through a heat moulding process and consists of a double layer; an incredibly rigid outer to keep power transfer high, plus a semi-flexible inner that's mouldable so your heel will be locked down and your foot stable.
The shoe closes over your foot using a double Boa system, distributing pressure evenly and allowing plenty of fine adjustment. Compatible with most road pedal three-bolt systems, the majority of riders can reap the benefits of these top-end shoes.

The Lake cx402 shoe has a carbon heel cup that is custom mouldable.
The carbon heel cup is narrow when manufactured and may pinch the heel when it is first tried on.
If the shoes feel fine then no problem.
To get the best and most comfortable fit they must be heated and moulded to your foot. Instructions are in the video link below:
However, if you find them still uncomfortable after this process unfortunately we are unable to accept a return as the shoes have been reshaped and are not re-sellable.
We usually recommend to purchase shoes from a store like ours so we can mould them for you, however, we are unable to offer this service at the moment.
There is always the option for a non-mouldable shoe like the CX332 OR CX238.
But, if you can't wait and feel comfortable with what you are doing we will ship you the shoes!
