And these are awesome if you have five friends and you want to look like some kind of fruity bike gang:
I would totally be in a fruity bike gang with my friends and wear those shoes.
I have these Tsubos, which everyone thinks are cycling shoes. (They're not.) I do wear them almost nonstop in warm seasons when I am riding my bike with toe clips.
I also bought a pair of Tigers but it's been too crappy out to wear them. Will have to wait until spring I guess.
I've been wearing these boots in the fall/winter and they work surprisingly well. The leather is flexible so they don't constrict my ankles, and they are totally waterproof. The toe box is slim enough to fit into toe clips with no problem.
Tigers are super comfortable, light, slim, breathable, good for clips and straps, some good designs but they seem to fall to pieces pretty fast. I've blown through half a dozen pairs of the Ultimate 81s already, but they're cheap so I don't mind. The last pair I got were leather uppers instead of cloth and they're holding up better, but they're not as comfortable by a longshot. Tend to overheat the feet.
Those boots look like they'd be good for outrunning vampires.
No laces takes it for me.
Back in the early 90's when I wore laceless vans and used clips, I couldn't do it together because I would often pull my foot out of the whole shoe. And that was with a cartridge. I can't imagine it working fixed.

Hey, you didn't say non-clipless.
The quintessential SSFG shoe. Not only do they work well/fit comfortably, you also get a heaping bonus of street cred.
+1 street cred
Also, you get to walk like a tapdancing duck. Or constantly carry spare shoes.
i want a pair of these =<
i'll pay 0.25 kilo tt for one
I was just thinking about how I hate feeling my pedal through sambas (or any other shoe) while on rides. Time for actual road shoes, me thinks. Competetive cyclist has magic ones on sale too!
sturdy as hell & don't stink after riding without sox
all day, all season, so cheap when they eventually fail get another pair for 20 bucks
