Lake CX210, £79.99
A fibreglass-injected nylon sole and reinforced heel area make this a rigid shoe designed to transfer all the energy from your legs to moving forward. A breathable mesh upper features leather overlays that secure your foot and help it dry out from the swim.
A clever wedge at the end of the Velcro tab means you'll never be fiddling to thread the tab through, and if you're a fashion-conscious triathlete - and who isn't? - the pearlescent shimmer and neat design add pizzazz.
