Newbie: First Cyclocross shoes - MX 331 CROSS?

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Newbie: First Cyclocross shoes - MX 331 CROSS?

Hi Guys,

I finally purchased my first CX bike and now looking for shoes!

From what I learnt, you can use any mountain bicycle shoes.

In my research, I found a cyclocross-specific shoe for $199: Laker MX 331 CROSS
(I can't post a link to it because of forum rules)

I believe they are on discount because they are an older model.

Anybody has any experience with them? Would you recommend them to a newbie or just go for some cheaper mountain bike shoes?

Cheers,
Brian

if you have the budget, and you line up with the shoe (narrower, smaller toe box according to their site), and you have a chance to try them on ... why not?

I went with a $60 pair of Shimanos on sale at Performance because I ride my cross bike only a fraction of the time compared to my road bike and didn't make a lot of financial sense to me. But that's my situation, not yours. Like I said, if you have the $$ why not?

Narrower than their MX237 model, which is very roomy. I am a HUGE Lake fan. Their shoes are awesome, they come in true wide widths and are affordable.

edit: Don't forget to check out eBay, that's where the deals are. Case in point: https://www.ebay.com/itm/282768685657?ul_noapp=true
