    That is great option to have. I used to have a pair of Bontrager Mt. Bike shoes about 8 years ago but they were like boat anchor heavy but withstood anything thrown to them like a tank. Looking forward on getting a pair of these new ones.

  • Andy Shanley says:

    So trek targeted 5.10 Freeriders and came up short. Bontragers have less grip than Freeriders and cost more? Oh, but they beat them by 140 grams /golfclap. No thanks trek… I’ll continue to roll with the “Gold Standard” of flat shoes.

  • C. says:

    I find my 5.10’s to be too grippy. Takes too much fiddling in order to ‘set’ my foot where I want it. So I’ll be trying these out maybe. Another thing : the soles on the 5.10’s wear out incredibly fast. Getting sick of having to glue new tread onto them….always too grippy, and always wearing out too fast. Sick of it at this point.

    Anybody know about how they fit? Euro (narrower) or America sizing?

  • Carl says:

    Bikepacking sure whatever but I’d get these for the rad styling alone – well done. But needs a non-SPD version.

  • nick says:

    recessed cleats… thats how I tore my ACL. Wonder what the thinking is with that element of the design. Otherwise they look ok.

  • Pablo says:

    “Hey, check out these really cool bike shoes! Too bad you can’t have ’em, because they’re already sold out!”

    Thanks for the waste of time!

    I have a pair not this one but they do not keep my feet warm and are hard to lock in on the pedal.

  • SeventeenSeventySix says:

    Well, which is it – Thermolite or Thinsulate? The article mentions both. Having experience with both of these materials, they have VERY different performance characteristics.

  • robert says:

    Your comment “You may not get 7 to 10 years out of them like some of the more expensive models out there” is a complete guess; an unobjective comparison related to cost of this and other products. i have used a variety of LG products and they have mostly lasted well beyond any expected lifetime of use. LG made my current bike shoes and they work fine year after year summer and winter. You should stick to observable facts about products in your reviews.

    How were they on the mountain bike? I’m looking for a new pair for XC racing and these look interesting.

    • jordan.villella@gmail.com says:

      They were amazing, super stiff, no problem with getting off the bike and running. I use them now as my main XC shoe, they were a bit too stiff for running in CX.

  • kyle says:

    Nice review! You mentioned you needed size “close” to what you wear in other brands. I’m curious if they tended to size up or down from your other shoes. I did their Size Wizard and I’m within 1mm for the next size up. I’m wondering…stay with the smaller size and risk touching the end or size up and risk a loose fit?

    • jordan.villella@gmail.com says:

      Hi Kyle,

      Personally, I size up but this is totally dependent on how you like your shoes to fit. I like more room in the toe that comes with a larger size. To compare fit to a popular brand I would say Specialized S-Works shoe XC shoe fits almost identical.

      Let me know if I can offer more help.

    It is highly understated the HUGENESS of Lake (already wide) making an EXTRA WIDE shoe. Fifteen years of sizing up in cycling shoes to get decent width may well be over with these shoes! Hooray!

    Why are “new” designs so much more expensive than older stuff that is nearly exactly the same just a little heavier and made by different manufacturers?
