Date Reviewed: June 26, 2011

Strengths:    These shoes are primarily used for XC and recreational riding. Very light and indestructible, used for the last 6 years on 3 different bikes, top quality upper and durable sole area. Laces and strap hold strong and still intact and usable after years of riding. Internal shoe material does not chaff and is still completely intact and snug.

Weaknesses:    Shoe sole is very stiff; great for power peddling but not great for hike-a-bike on extreme up/downhill sections of the trail.

Bottom Line:   
As soon as I destroy these, will definitely replace with a similar shoe from Lake.

Date Reviewed: September 16, 2004

Strengths:    fit wide feet! super hard to find shoes that fit me wide feets. I even have two different size feet (7-9) and this actually work for me. I think it's that laces thing. Still in great shape. I've used them tons. Did couriering in them for a year. No problems.

Weaknesses:    ...the laces do get a bit pulled by the velcro, but i love the laces, so to me it's no big deal. They're a bit freakish long. Look like clown shoes, but they fit great. It might be the design, dunno.

Bottom Line:   
These are a great deal. I've been using them for...5 years, no problems, fit wide feet, lacing means better fit. Breath well. yup, good schtuff. Not too great to walk in though, but they're for biking!

Strengths:    Good fit, cheap, light, comfortable

Weaknesses:    None yet.

Bottom Line:   
Mine are the 2001's that are mostly black (not a shoe for posers).

I bought these on closeout and thought I was taking a chance buying a cheap shoe. However, I am very happy with the fit (lacing and cover with one velcro strap work well), stiff sole (my C-Soles gave me hot spots), lighter weight, and value. Tried top-of-the-line Shimanos, but they are made for narrow feet. If I hadn't found the Lakes, I would have bought Diadora Chilis on closeout for $60 due to their excellent fit. The Lakes, at $35, are definitely a better value and, so far, are serving me well.

Date Reviewed: January 29, 2002

Strengths:    These are GREAT shoes. They are terribly comfortable, both in the pedals and out. They have good traction if you need to walk. They look decent and the shoelace cover on the 2001's are great. Haven't had any problems and would buy another pair for the right price... and these were definatly the right price!

Weaknesses:    None that I can speak of at this point.

Bottom Line:   
Buy these shoes if you get a chance. The price is great and even if you want a backup pair of shoes to keep around in case your expensive ones break, these are great to have. Comfortable, sturdy, and practical.

Strengths:    Good fit and style. I have had specialized and shimano spd shoes and the soles broke. They were garbage. These were $40 and look great, the picture shown is the 2000 edition. 2001 are black and have a lace cover

Weaknesses:    None so far. Lake offers a 1 year warranty so if they do have any I'm covered.

Bottom Line:   
If they have any left buy'em
