      Great looking cycling shoes which can be used with SPDs or flats

      I bought these 661 filter shoes a couple of months ago mainly to use for commuting or nipping
      to the shops on my bike. As I have Time SPD type pedals ( the type that lock onto your shoes
      with a quick release cleat) on both my bikes I need to wear SPD compatible shoes.

      Although I have a couple of pairs of race style mountain bike shoes I wanted something that
      looked slightly less like I'd just escaped from the Tour De France when I walk into a shop or
      nip to the pub after work.

      The 661 Filter shoes look like skate trainers so they don't look silly when you nip out on the
      bike wearing jeans like the race style shoes do. The shoes can be used with or without SPD
      pedals there's a removable section in the sole which comes off to reveal the sole plate for
      attaching the cleat for clipless pedals. The cleat plate is recessed in the sole so the cleat
      doesn't protrude too much when you're off the bike which makes walking easier.

      The shoes have a gum skate style sole with a stiff plate in the sole for maximum pedalling
      efficiency whether you are using SPD or flat pedals. Although the sole is stiffer than skate
      shoes the inner sole is well padded so they are still comfortable to wear and a lot more
      comfortable to walk in than race style SPD shoes.

      The 661 shoes have synthetic suede uppers which despite being worn most days in the last
      couple of months is still in good condition with no major wear or scuffs. The only downside
      I've found with these shoes is they are only water resistant not waterproof so in a heavy
      downpour the water tends to soak in a bit but no more than most skate shoes I've owned.
      The shoes are lace fastening but have a strap across the top to keep the laces from catching
      in the pedals when you're on the bike. The shoes are slightly heavier than the race type
      mountain bike shoes but not so heavy they are uncomfortable to wear.

      These are a fantastic solution for anyone who wants to try SPD type pedals on their bike
      but doesn't want to end up with a pair of useless shoes if they don't get on with SPDs.
      With these you can put the cover back on the sole and use the shoes with normal flat
      pedals. Many of of the race style shoes have a smooth solid sole plate where the cleats
      go so won't work with flat pedals and will also let in water through the cleat holes in the
      sole if there are no cleats screwed in

      These are perfect for anyone with SPD pedals who wants a pair of casual looking trainers
      rather than race shoes. They they are also ideal for BMX riders or anyone with flat pedals
      who wants a pair of skate styled shoes that are designed to give maximum pedal efficiency.

      These are available in black or white and currently cost £55 - £65 depending on where you
      shop and are available online from chainreationcycles, globalbike and wiggle.
