Thanks for replying !
I used to ride in normal sport shoes, and realized that the soft sole, would get gouged with the alloy pedals. And the shoe or floaters would get damaged. Recently i started riding with spd cleats and the experience was amazing, but after a couple of falls, realized that for city commutes platform pedals would be ok. My commute is about an hour one way, and lots of stop and go's. I would not be wearing these shoes at work or for any walking. These will be exclusively for cycling. My main concern is the sole should not get damaged due to my alloy toothy pedals.
