    Lake Shoes?

    I'm looking for new shoes, and want something that you can walk in, but not too flexy. They will be used on clipless pedals. I'm thinking something a little more on the rugged side, weight is not a big issue. I found these Lake shoes:

    http://www.lakecycling.com/ProductIn...roductid=MX255

    Some features I like:
    - laces, no velcro
    - not flashy
    - vibram sole ---> good for walking, too
    - top neoprene wrap to keep the rocks and dirt out. I always have a pile of dirt and pebbles in my current shoes
    - ankle protection. Skinned ankle bones suck! As soon as you skin 'em you bump them against everything, causing no end to the pain, and then it takes forever to heal.

    If anyone has any other suggestions, or can advise me on how Lake shoes fit, I'd appreciate it. I can't find these locally, and don't want to get the sizing wrong.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I have a pair of Lakes w/ the Vibram sole, not the ones you're looking at though. Can't think of the model but my main beef is that the stitching isn't done very well. I have already blown out a couple seams in two seasons of decent abuse. Other than that they're fine, I do like the Vibram sole.

    i've got a pair of mx-165 lakes that i love. very comfy to pedal and hike a bike in. the only downside is that they are pretty warm, compared to my specialized shoes. i tend to only wear them on rides when it's a bit chillier, or ones where i know i'll do some hoofing it.

    the vibram sole rocks; wish i could get some on the bottoms of my other bike shoes!

    I have the Lake mx-100 any way lowcut with vibram sole.

    I commute and ride a;most every day. They are one year old.

    To clean I hose off the mud, brush up the leather, and air dry.

    Only wear is at the heel.

    Great Shoes

    I will be looking at the higher cut shoes next time.

    No one else has issues with the seams?
