My old Nike SPD shoes are starting to tear at the toe box...too bad as I really like them, but this gives me an opportunity to try something stiffer. I've been riding with SPD only as I do occasionally walk around a little during stops, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't consider a set of SL pedals and shoes if there is an advantage to doing so.
I've tried on the Specialized Sport Touring shoe and it seems quite stiff, SPD ready and reasonably priced at ~$85 at the LBS. So...what do you ride with and why? Have you switched from SPD to SPD-SL stuff and had a great experience? Got a shoe you love and want to recommend?
