I have some Shimano R076 road shoes which I use with SPD pedals and cleats.
I have only had them a month and not used them much. I certainly haven't walked very far in them. Just 10 yards to and from the garage every other day. But already, the soles are getting quite scuffed.
Obviously they are likely to get worn out eventually, but is there any way of protecting the soles so that I can walk short distances without causing much if any damage?
