Have any of you that own a pair of Lake shoes purchased the heat mouldable inner soles. If so was it worth the extra dollars. I have a pair of wide 237s on their way and wondered if it will help with the comfort or just use the inner soles out of my wide S-work 6s.

1) Made them really snug (for a month - see below) when on the bike. However, made them painful to walk in as the edge of the inner dug into the side of my feet.
2) Binned them after 3 months. The wide models were very wide. The 402’s are made of kangaroo leather which stretched. Meant the uppers could not be tightened enough and the shoes became baggy.
So there is an upside but be careful.

everyone is different, but i've used both, with the 402s my experience was similar to izza...
first ones were too tight (chose same size a s-works ones), changed for the next size, then they too had to go back as on one shoe the cf had a sharp bit inside that dug into my foot (on and off the bike), then after a few weeks the leather stretched and i could no longer tighten them enough
bont vaypor s standard were near perfect but took a lot of moulding to get some extra width, then added a wide pair which were ok with only the heel cup needing moulding, still use both pairs, also got some bont riot in a sale which i use for the commute
Cheers for the replys guys.
fwiw the lake insoles in the 402s were nothing special, not as flimsy as sidi, but not as substantial as the specialized bg ones (didn't matter to me as i always use my old efit insoles as i need the arch support)
if you don't need any extra arch support they may be ok, but i think your bg ones will be better, especially on longer rides
I have a wide forefoot and narrow heel. The heel has some slippage when walking.
I never bothered trying the insoles. I use protech insoles in all my sneakers, shoes, and cycling shoes.
I had something similar. The fitter (podiatrist) sanded down the front of my cx237 foam insole a fair bit for me.
