I really wanted to like these and it was tough to return them.
On first impressions, it appeared to be a great show. Dual Boa, lightweight, carbon soled, etc. The sizing from Lake's site was pretty spot on. I traced both feet out on paper; 297mm for the right and 294mm for the left. I didn't add 5mm like they recommended and am glad that I didn't as they would've been half a size too large if I did. I have wide feet at 109mm and these were perfect width.
However, some others experienced the same issue with the tongue digging into the top of their foot and I was no different. Tightening down both dials made the top of the shoe dig into the tops of my feet surrounding my ankle. I'm not sure if it was just the way my foot was shaped, but definitely a drawback for me personally. Additionally, the heel cup was significantly looser around the heel as some other shoes I've tried. Granted I'm sure this could've been solved with some heat, but since I was returning them, I didn't see the point.
If the tongue was not an issue, I'm sure forming the heel cup with some heat would've solved my only issue with the shoe.
I had the same issue w/tongue. Oddly the regular leather MX237 works fine for me. Go figure!
