    Do you mean the Lake MXZ 300?

    The 2006 version is the MXZ 301 http://www.lakecycling.com/winter.html

    How does the size turn out with these boots. I normally wear a 37 Shimano, but a 38 Sidi (both shoes). Should i get a size larger?

    I'm from the UK so will have to get them from outside the UK as the UK distributor is only importing sizes 42 - 47, which is rubbish

    Those are the one's. Ordering them a little large will allow you to wear some thicker socks also. I ordered mine one size larger than my Sidi summer shoes and that is fine for me with thicker socks.

    I got mine from a local bike shop. I think www.bikeman.com has them at a decent price, not sure what you would incur for shipping cost.

    I ordered my shoes from an EBay Retailer - the price was excellent and the shipping was bit slower (but is stated on the site) than I would've liked but I received them. They are brand new and they fit excellent.

    I typically wear a 41 - I ordered a 42 to accomdate thicker socks and they fit excellent with or without the socks.

    Sidi Storm

    I have the Sidi Storms and they are excellent. Great in muddy and/or cold temps. Last winter they were good for me down to 15 degrees F. Colder than that and my feet got cold. Very comfortable too....

    I just got a pair of Answer Kashmir's over the weekend (Answer is one of the companies I can prodeal from):

    http://www.answerproducts.com/items....=10&itemid=140

    The prodeal price was more reasonable than the Lake winter shoes.

    They are still sitting in my bedroom ...I still need to put cleats on it.

    They are not insulated...just good ol' leather.

    I wear a 9.5, but these shoes only come in whole sizes so I ordered a size 44 (size 10) and in my regular cycling socks, they are plenty roomy. Even when I throw on my wool hiking socks, they are still roomy. I'm guessing that if I put on my wool mountaineering socks, then they will be snug. Getting my foot through the ankle high neoprene collar requires some work though.

    My limit to riding in the cold is in the mid/high 30s so I think this shoe will definately be adequate for my needs.

    I got my Kashmirs for $107 at http://www.aebike.com along with some Extreme 296 studded tires. They have good deals on last year's Lake MXZ300s as well.

    BTW, MTBR.com needs a Winter Biking forum.

    First Kashmir ride ...

    Well, I had my inaugaraul Kashmir ride tonight in 45 degree weather and 30-40 MPH winds. They were VERY comfy with thick Smartwool hikers. I wore a neoprene ankle support over the socks to make up for the fact that these shoes are too long for my feet (one size to large to get the necessary width).

    While cycling, the boot never feels like you're "pulling out". However, when pushing your bike up steep hills (quite assuradely with the cleats) the heel does slip quite a bit. Next ride I'll probably try two pairs of ankle supports to see if I can get this things to stay put.

    The Lake MXZ300 had a heel strap to help neutralize it. And I spent quite a bit of time thinking about how to sew some sort of heel retention strap on these shoes to get them to behave during "hike-a-bike".

    I have been told that the Lakes are wider than the MXZ300. And I have been told that the MXZ301s have a wider toe box. My best assesment on this matter is that winter bicycling shoes are available in really narrow and narrow. Oh well, they still keep your feet warm I guess ;-)
