    Could be promising, but it's hard to tell without details. I recently decided to track down a pair of non-disco SPD shoes and found a handful that bore at least some resemblance to a normal shoe. Everything I found was ridiculously wide and/or had a floppy sole, either of which is a complete performance killer in my book. Maybe these will be different?

    It better have a stiff sole. Not carbon stiff, but not Vans soft.

    Not anticipating the price tag.

    Would Ian Mackaye approve?

    the people developing them do, otherwise i'm pretty sure no one outside of the company has even seen the actual shoes, let alone feet-molested them.

    since mission workshop is ex-facto chrome guys and gals i'm pretty sure they'd be at least as stiff and AS walkable as the chrome shoes, but i am pretty sure anything said will be speculation until promo copies are distributed outside the development team.

    Holy f*ck, they have them at the Hub co-op, which is my LBS of choice. They look beautiful and like I wouldn't have to take them off at work if I didn't want to. I may have to check this out asap.

    Just posted a review:
    http://ceramicconfessions.wordpress....del-bike-shoe/

    Basically... I could be happier but not by much. This shoe is an outstanding proof of concept and a true success, albeit pricey and not for everyone.

    It bikes better than my adidas marathons do, and it walks better than my sambas. It's not without faults, but if you have the money, you can't do better than these if you want to do it all with one shoe.

    the question that really matters to me is, do they make that obnoxious clicking?!? i've had very comfortable shoes that just weren't *quite* recessed enough to not click and grind on the pavement.
    before posting, a "noob" should always ask themselves "could this have been answered by first visiting Sheldon Brown

    Clipless shoes that you can actually wear as casual! This is indeed something I want!

    Good God, I can't imagine riding with those things. Looks like it's got 0 ventilation.
