Taipei Show: Lake Heat Molds your Sole, Sneak Peek of Limited 402 Matte Black Road Shoe
As we found on the Lake CX331 road shoes, custom molding of the shoe can provide major benefits in extended ride comfort. But what are you to do if your shoes aren’t head moldable? Then you might want to check out Lake’s new heat moldalbe custom insoles. Offered in both fiberglass and carbon fiber, the insoles offer custom fit arch and heel cup support that are compatible with just about any road shoe.
See what a set of custom insoles will set you back as well as check out the new Limited Edition 402 Matte Black road shoe next.
Like their custom fit road shoes, the insoles can be custom molded at home with the use of your oven. Using a slightly lower temperature, insoles are placed in the oven at 150°f for 3 minutes, then placed in the shoe to conform to your feet. The toughest part of designing the insoles was to create something that was nearly the same thickness of a standard insole. The custom fit insoles will be offered in fiberglass for $50 a pair, and a lighter carbon version at $80, and will be shipping next month. Lake says a perfect use of the insoles in in a shoe like their CX237 which isn’t heat moldable.
Few details here other than the fact that this is their new Limited Edition CX402 road shoe in matte black. We want it. What about you?
