Guys and Gals,
Ordered me some Shimano SH-R077 shoes the other day along with Shimano clipless pedals PD-A530. I ordered this type of shoe because you can walk on them as you have recessed cleats. Also the clipless pedals because they can be ridden clipped in, or with regular athletic shoes. Had SM-SH56 cleat set ordered to put on the shoes. Lo and behold, didn't know that I also needed to order Shimano SPD Adapter so I can walk around in the shoes with the cleats without scuffing up the floor, etc. It is the rubber piece that goes under the cleats and provides rubber contact with ground. Amazing, how one can get "nickel and dimed" to death. The learning curve for this newbie continues.
