I recently switched from clipless to platform pedals when my cycling shoe broke, and I'm taking this opportunity to see if I can find the perfect commuter solution.
I really liked my clipless shoes (eggbeaters), they were safe, fast, and easy to walk in (they were mtb shoes), but the big problem with them is that while they are great as cycling shoes, you can't do anything else in them. So I'm giving platforms a shot.
There's only two criteria:
1) I usually bike to the gym before I get to work, so the shoes need to be able to cross-train and run in them.
2) The shoes have to be able to get wet and dry quick.
The image in my mind is coming up with a trail running shoe, but I wanted to see if anyone else had considered this problem and how they attempted to fix it. Should I go with a light mesh shoe that can air dry, or a gore-tex shoe that doesn't get wet? Am I overambitious in trying to go with the one-shoe-fits-all strategy? Specific shoe recommendations would be awesome if you have them.
