I wanted to replace my cheap platform/clips/nylon straps combo on my road/touring bike with some MKS GR-9s:
and some deep toe clips:
but my question is, do I need straps? I've seen some hipsters riding around without them and I think it looks nice- can I get away with this or will I look/be foolish? I'm confused because when I search for "strapless" toe clips, I bring up all these half toe clips like:
which look kinda useless. Which option is best for use with sneakers/street shoes?
