Are there walkable cycling shoes that look normal?

Please show me shoes that can be walked on and look like normal shoes.

Thanks.

Nice, if the size fits (only limited sizes left). Try also the Cannondale C610: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/pro...dept_id=L2~326

Yeah, Shimano sandals are very good and comfortable. They look like normal sandals.

Awesome shoes so far guys! Those Shimano MO21s especially look nice, in fact, if I saw those as a regular shoe I probably would buy them. The Cannondales look good as well and the Nuevos are *almost* there, but still a world of difference between them and my fruity road shoes.

Keep the links coming everybody, and thanks so much! I need something I can wear into stores and such and to be able to walk around without teetering over and scratching up the place.

I've actually used the Shimano MO21s on a moderately long hike through the hills, and I did just fine. It would be nice to find a temporary cover for the cleats (even recessed cleats) though so the sparks don't fly as you slip over bare rock.

I have Adidas Minretts. Black with a little red.

Those Shimanos look pretty nice.

I would deff. go for some of those. When I walk on concrete, I can hear a little scratch, im afraid im going to wear down my cleats in a week But in stores/hardwood floor they are awesome.

Shimano MT30s here, all black so a bit less flashy, the Eggbeater cleats grind a little bit, I'd not walk a lot of distance in them but they're not bad.

Mine are Specialized Tahoe's, and they've been mistaken for light hikers by an REI boot salesman. He thought they were "cool" looking. I don't make a point of hiking in them, but they're as comfortable to walk around in as any casual shoes I own, and no damage to the recessed cleat, or to the floors, so far.
