If you happened to catch any of the Eurobike fashion show you know that bright colors are in demand. This is probably why Lake is introducing some eye catching new colorways on both the road and mountain side of the footwear biz. But since life is all about balance, there are also some new all black offerings like the MX331 Cross which will be tearing up race courses this Fall. As always, Stage Race Distribution had the latest on Lake as they continue to distribute the brand in North America.
As some of Lake’s most popular shoes, both the CX and MX 175s get some fresh new color. Available in both the road and mountain versions of each shoe, there will now be a loud hi viz yellow option as well as a bright, but understated by comparison, all red version. Both options will sit alongside the classic black version if that’s your style.
Speaking of all black, the new MX331 Cross is now shipping in both the original orange and the new sinister looking all black variety. Built with a full carbon race sole with Thermaform heel counter, the shoe features a rubber cleat pocket and modular toe and heel spikes designed specifically for cyclocross racing. Constructed with Klite Kangaroo leather and mesh upper, and Outlast heel and toe liner the shoe is ready to take on the barriers.
What do you put on when you win said race? Put on the Lake Podium shoes of course. Ok, these MX237 based flats may or may not ever make it to market, but they do exist. We’re guessing if you’re good enough to be winning big races in a pair of Lake shoes, you might already own a pair…
