I also enjoy the not-on-the-bike advantages - wearing the same shoes in the car that I wear on the bike and being able to walk around on any surface with normal feeling shoes.

I felt the same way when I switched back to flats, that there was a tiny bit of thinking my brain no longer had to do now that I wasn't clipped in. Not a huge deal but it was nice.
And therein lies one of my problems. I wish I could afford Five Tens but not at this moment so I'm still using my old Specialized mtb shoes.
