    Shoes for both platform and clipless

    Has anybody found a pair of shoes that work well for them on both platform and clipless pedals? Between running, soccer (indoor and outdoor), work (safety shoes), etc, I've got a ton of shoes piled up in my room, and would rather keep it from growing too large. I plan on riding platforms on my trail bike and sticking the SPD's that came with that one onto my hardtail, and it would be great to have one versatile shoe for both.

    I'd like improved grip and stiffness over tennis shoes when riding on platforms, but still have breathability.

    Of course, I haven't found anything that has the sweet odor of perfection, but pricepoint has a really low package price on a Wellgo B25 pedals (496 g for a platform? possibly scary...) combined with Sette Enduro Shoes.

    I'd appreciate any comments on your favorite shoes, the Sette Enduros, or the Wellgo B25s

    Any shoe with a cleat bolted on the sole will not perform well on platform pedals.

    Hmm 661 Duallies say non-SPD, which is the pedals I currently have.

    I guess my best option is probably to continue platform riding in tennis shoes and get a decent set of spinning cleats for my HT.

    I personally ride skate shoes. They work really well if you use bmx style pedals
