    Trimming Shoes

    Hi guys, I need to trim my new shoes to get a little more clearance around my cleats.

    What's the best way to do this? Utility knife? Dremel?

    Thanks in advance,
    Com.

    Yes - don't over think it, just do it.

    I've used a Dremel with a sanding drum and it worked well. Just work carefully as these things remove the rubber FAST. Also work outside as it will make a lot of dust and smoke.

    I've used both and I've used the dremel to clean up after the utility knife.
