Join us for Lake Shoe Fitting Weekend.

Lake (U.K.) shoe expert, Richard Staton will be at Billy Bilsland Cycles, Glasgow this month!

Here at Lake Cycling Shoes, we don’t just design the best cycling shoes in the world. Neither do we just sell them onto great retailers, to pass on to you – the important element in all of this.
No, we care about you and your feet so much so, that we like attending our retail partners around the globe, so that our team of Lake shoe experts can talk to you face to face about our huge range of road cycling and off-road cycling shoes. Wherever you are in the cycling world, we’re likely to be close at hand to guide you to the most comfortable cycling possible – wrapped in legendary Lake foot-love.

Let Lake get the measure of you.
Here in the U.K., we’ve got shoe fitting experts at our retail partners as far afield as the south, south-west, and up in Scotland. In the next few weeks, Richard (Staton), from our new U.K. office, will be attending a series of fitting events with partners, which will include visiting and speaking with cyclists at Billy Bilsland Cycles at 176 Saltmarket, Glasgow. The event is scheduled for 23rd and 24th June, from 12.30pm until 6.30 p on Friday, and from 10am until 3pm on Saturday. The Billy Bilsland shop is one of the most respected in the U.K., having been opened in Glasgow's east end in 1980 by Billy Bilsland, who was fresh out the pro peloton (he had since retired from his European Professional Cycling career only a couple of seasons before). Ever since then, this dynamic band of cycling experts have been managing a fast-paced independent bike shop, sharing their expertise and trying to make the world a better place, one bicycle at a time.

Richard, from our new Lake U.K. has a long career in U.K. cycling, having worked for global leading brands, and is now bringing his wealth of experience and knowledge to you, as a key member of the new Lake U.K. team.

Look at our latest cycling shoes.
If you’d like to speak to Richard yourself and get your feet properly measured (for length, width and volume), why not contact the Glasgow shop and they’ll arrange everything. Alternatively, just pop along and take a close look at the vast range of Lake Cycling Shoes, as Richard talks through the design and technology aspects that make our cycling shoes the best in the world. Whether you just want to replace your older shoes for a new pair, or you’ve had specific discomfort from previous brands that you’ve worn, Richard and the team at the store can advise you on both your bike set-up and what shoes are best for your own unique feet.

The new Lake CX /MX 242 is the ultimate cycling shoe all feet. Designed with a wealth of technology, including articulated panels on the upper, a dual BOA closure and carbitex to help with lateral support, it’s the shoe that fits most foot shapes, especially cyclists with specific problems such as bunions. Learn more about our best-selling shoe, the Lake CX 238, for performance and comfort in perfect harmony, ready to take you on your next road cycling adventure this summer, and long into the future.

Communication is always valuable – for all of us.
It's a great opportunity to speak directly to us here at Lake, and for us to also listen to your own thoughts about cycling and any foot issues that you may have. After all, it’s this direct communication that drives our designs forward, and ensures that you get the best ride possible – with Lake. The world’s best cycling shoes.

Richard Staton
