Lake CX165-W women's shoes review
These fetching silver-coloured leather road shoes for women are suitable for most pedal types including SPDs.
They secure with three hook-and-loop straps; earlier versions also featured lacing, which we’d have preferred to the current use of just straps, because these can stretch with prolonged use.
The shoes are on the broad side, though the toe box is quite low so they don’t feel over-roomy if your feet aren’t particularly wide, and they can be cinched in easily.
They’re quite light (290g without cleats, size 39), with a good level of stiffness. Minimal heel and toe grips mean they’re not great for walking in.
