Other features in this leather shoe include stiff sole, low profile, reflective detailing, and lacekeeper to keep laces from catching. The shoe comes with a retainer block you can use to fill in the recessed sole if you want to go without cleats.

    I didn’t see them test the things on the elliptical trainer at the gym or for jogging. Still, I could use a good set of SPD shoes at the gym so I don’t have to either use toe clips or carry along an extra set of shoes.

    I don’t get why you would want an SPD casual shoe. Why not just use platform pedals with any shoe? A decent pair of platform pedals cost about $20 ($13 if you go with some Odyssey Twisted PC). And don’t give me the efficiency feet flying off over big pot holes crap either, I ride some of the roughest trails on my mountain bike on platforms (some trails have 2 foot drops) and I seem to keep my feet on just fine. :D

    Some people do a lot of climbing, which is what clipless pedals are particularly good for. Having a spiky platform pedal smash into your shin isn’t much fun.

    Me: my road bike is also my all around town bike, and my road bike is equipped with clipless pedals.

    Or you could make your own out of any shoe like I did: http://gearinches.com/blog/how-to/diy-cycling-shoes
