FOR THE FORTUNATE
When it comes to fit that feels virtually molded to a cyclist’s body, Assos definitely knows the score. For cycling shoes with carbon soles that can literally be molded to a cyclist’s feet, Lake pretty much wrote the book. Combine the two, and you’ve got what could also be the most luxurious cycling shoes we’ve ever had the misfortune of testing and then having to give back: the Assos CyclingSlipper Shoes.
Though the power-to-the-pedals fit of the CFC race last is vital, it’s in the long run useless if the sole yields to input like nylon. Lake’s expertise comes into play here, with the CyclingSlippers featuring the same carbon sole as Lake’s top-end CX402 shoes. Like the CX402, the CyclingSlippers’ soles are also moldable, for a crystal-slipper fit that wasn’t to begin with manufactured for your foot, but that definitely fits it like a glove. Or a slipper. Or a CyclingSlipper.
The CyclingSlippers’ Kangaroo leather uppers are soft and infinitely adaptable, conforming over the course of a short break-in period to the cyclist’s foot. After they are imprinted with a given user’s pedi-DNA, the uppers are almost as customized as the soles. The lining is both breathable and antimicrobial, and the heel and tongue liner demonstrates the Assos touch by in reality regulating foot temperature. The shoes are finished with the ubiquitous-for-a-reason Boa wire buckles, which effect a quick fit before the ride and a low profile all the way through it.
List Price: $525
I bought these shoes and used them 5 – 10x. They’re in like new condition. You’ll be able to heat the sole and customize up to 7 more times.
