Lake Women's CX217 Road Shoe
How did Lake create a women's shoe with real leather uppers, Boa closures and carbon soles for the price of a mid level shoe? Nobody knows. What we do know is, they took the proven design and reliability of their CX175 series, added their new Race Carbon Sole for lower weight and a stiffer sole and somehow kept the price incredibly low.
I bought these Lakes as they appeared sturdy and stylish. They were to be back up shoes for my wife's road riding. She is training for some ultra-distance races and wanted a back up pair. She now uses these as her primary shoes and moved her Specialized shoes as the back ups! Great shoes!!
