    I woudl say if you can learn to mount dismout your bike without uncliping your bike shoes(and have proper tri shoes) that getting proper shoes would be better. I am just thinking that having proper shoes you would have beeter power transfer to the drivetrain. Also I dont liek the heel thing for climbing when you want to be pulling up, I can see your foot slipping some.

    Just checking again, these cost $119CAD. You can get a good pair of Tri shoes for about that much.

    I would let someone that has used them before though say something, this is the first time I have ever seen them.

    I had something like them long long ago. It is just easier to un-velcro out of the bike shoes (leaving them still clipped to the peddle), and ride your foot on top of the shoe in the last 1/2 to 1/4 mile or so. Then zip into your running shoes. I use a neat trick in T1 leaving the shoes on the peddle and holding them in place (even with thhe cranks) with rubberbands which just break for the most part after getting into the shoe.
