Lake MX140 mountain bike shoes £136

All-terrain amphibious footwear

BikeRadar score 3.5/5

Lake have thought outside the box here and the results are impressive when it’s wet yet mild. Rather than a conventional boot, these use a breathable, waterproof eVent fabric and Neoprene sock inside a sandal outer skeleton, with Boa winch lacing and hard toe and heel cups.

The result is extremely comfortable, light and surprisingly warm thanks to the soft, pinch-free upper. They also dry much faster than conventional boots. An open soft-compound rubber tread on a stiff race sole makes these firm underfoot, although there is movement in the upper, which softens your stomping power.
