looking for some gnarly kicks

im looking to spend under a hundred bucks.

i need shoes that would work with either SPD or Egg beater cleats. also i want super stiff soles.

the gnarly part is: i want a ton of tread on the shoes, my specialized shoes are getting worn out now and the cleats are starting to touch the ground when i walk. it would be cool if the cleats were recessed like an inch into the bottom of the sole.

Design your own/order a custom thick soled SPD.
