Speedplay did a nice job on these. I also have a set of Winwood Decksters that I use sometimes on some of your spd cleat systems.

Hey, how do those work? I've gone 100 yards or so on my sneakers before just to debug some maintenance I've done and it's awful. Can you ride a decent distance on those covers without hating your feet?

cover goes on each side and the big U shaped pin holds them together... saw em at the LBS last time I was in... neat stuff... I imagine it's pretty close to standard flats... did read they suck in the rain (hard plastic... go figure)... some skate board type grip tape would prob help that though
