I understand what you're getting at, illwill but am looking for a pair that work with spd's but have the capacity to be worn when stopping at a cafè or somewhere for lunch and not make me lurch around like a fucking ice-skater.

Giro offers something to that description.

But I don't know what is worse. That you look like someone who wears purpose built gear befitting to the situation (arriving by bike) or like someone with very ugly shoes that go clickity clack.

Giro Rumble VR. Vibram soles, mine still going strong after over a couple of years

Had a pair of these Chrome Industries Kursk and rate them highly. Pretty slim and as close to ‘normal’ shoes as you’ll get https://www.chromeindustries.com/product/kursk-pro-2.0-bike-shoe/FW-113.html?dwvar_FW-113_color=BK&cgid;=bike_shoes

Those Kursk are cool Cool

Been browsing online for most of the night, fine line between what I'd like to buy and practically what I can actually use (I do predominantly proper off road, weekends in Wales and days out on my own, planned routes when MTB'ing); I really need somehtng relatively sturdy and waterproof (currently use Shimano Saint pedals and some Nike ACG) so the options seem to be pretty limited. Looks like I'll have to defer to the dedicated shoe if I go the SPD route and that puts me off.

Thanks again for all the suggestions.

heaps of Rapha went on SportPursuit this morning. might be only dribbles left but worth a scope if it went under the radar. most 50% of RRP.

Can anyone recommend somewhere that sells Castelli gear for cheap? Don't fancy paying full retail.
