I had some that looked very like these on a hybrid bike a while back. They were extraordinarily good at creating deep gouges in my shins when I carried the bike the wrong way (not to mention ugly scratches on the front door). And the bite bits actually bit into soft-soled shoes so my feet hurt.

I now have spd pedals on all bikes, and use mtb shoes that are fine for walking short or medium distances.
