Lake CX175 Road Cycling Shoes
The higher cadence & longer ride times which characterize road cycling require excellent foot control to avoid hot-spots & numbness. The wide version offers 15mm of additional volume at the ball of the foot over the standard width last. With a much closer fit than any of our off-road lasts, our Sport last cradles the foot securely to prevent any unwanted movement.
- Lake Competition fiberglass-injected nylon outsole (3-hole compatible)
- Action leather & mesh upper
- Side mounted Push/Pull BOA L4 lacing system with powerzone in the forefoot

What a beautiful pair of cycling shoes! They are well made and very eye-catching. I ordered the red pair.
I wasnt sure if these would fit, but they fit my kind of wide feet very well. Actually they are perfect. I am a size 39 and these fit well. The yellow colour is bright. Merlin are a good company to order online from.
Great shoe for commuting, go a size up over your normal shoes. Great fit, no issues so far
Nice shoes for the money. I bought a black pair and I was impressed with the build quality of them for the money. The uppers seem high quality and the Boa works well. I have done a 55 mile Sportive in them and no issues. Maybe the insole is a little thin which was not a problem with thickish winter socks but may cause an issue in the summer when I wear thinner socks. The weight of the shoes is maybe a little heavier than some other brands entry models but you do get the feeling that these will last and clean up well.
Great shoes with very stiff soles at a great price! Would recommend
High quality shoes with a nice stiff sole
Sleek, Smart and very comfy. Arch not too high and Boa closure gives a great fit
These are my first clipless shoes and I love them. They look and feel very good quality. The fastening system is brilliant and they fit well.
Great products, leather upper wear comfortable, the right size
I just put my first 20 miles on the Lake CX175s. Shoes fit and look great. I am a EU46\US12 and they fit perfectly. However, the insole is very thin and soft with little arch support. I use Specialized medium arch support insoles in all my cycling shoes. They do not fit in these due to the wide toe box. I will find a replacement quickly as I see this standard insole becoming very uncomfortable on longer rides.
What I was very pleased with was how easy the Lakes are to clip in. I have always struggled with clipping in my Bontragers. I found catching the front of the pedals a constant pain in the butt. Using the Lakes was night and day over the bontragers. I am using the same Shimano SPD-SL clips and the same 105 pedals. I assume it has something to do with the shape of the sole.
Merlin support was great. The shoes arrived quickly enough in the US. Tracking the shipment was a pain but this is not on Merlin. They were able to get me what I needed when I emailed them for an update. Couldnt be more pleased and will buy from them again.
Excellent quality, I'm EU47 UK12 and often find it difficult to find comfy shoes as most tend to run narrow, these fit great and look great plus Merlin Cycles were the cheapest around which is even better
Really good quality shoes. The fit is perfect, and the shoes are leather, which means they will last well. The closure system keeps your feet shut. They are quite warm and will be better for autumn/winter rides. Excellent value for money and customer service from merlin
