Clipless slip-ons?

Shoes or sandals... Anyone heard of such a thing? I love my clipless sandals, and will probably get a set of shoes, but it'd be so convenient to have clipless footwear I could just step into.

edit- Time will tell as to how well they hold up.

Shimano sells a pair of clipless sandals, the SH-SD65 which may just be the thing you are looking for.

Not exactly slip-on, but probably the closest you are going to get:

Yeah, me too. I find velcro exhausting. Especially when compared to doing a 50 mile ride. Don't get me started on laces.....

Those remind me of a set I got from na$hbar for 30 bucks. I was looking for something closer to these...


Maybe these will scare off slowundsteady.

I am not sure a slip on would stay on your feet with clipless.

Cannondale had a nice clog but I haven't seen them for sale (bought mine in 04)

An alternative is to just use a set of those quick-laces on an otherwise normal pair.

Oh, sweet, probably out of my price range when they were available, but at least there's something. Thanks!
