Friday WTF: Ruin any Shoes!

   This Friday's WTF comes from a link a friend sent me. These guys are making a bolt on plate for your street shoes to make them into clipless shoes. For example - here's some kind of Nike high top made into a clipless shoe. Great for those days when you want to hit the court, and ride your fixie, and do neither well.


   The next example is a dress shoe ruined with a clipless mount. 

Stylish Stupid

   Why would you be riding a fixed gear in a suit? This is a serious question... I can't think of a reason. 

"The line to kick our asses starts over there."

   Finally, why not add a cleat to the softest soled shoes on the market? This is one step away from just bolting the clips right to your feet.

   One large reason you wear cleats is because you want a good power transfer to your pedals, which is the result of a firm sole. Casual shoes do not have a firm sole. In my opinion, you're just one short step to this:

Clipless... sandals?

   ... and inevitably, this:

Pinacle of cool.

Dude, those are awesome looking. And I have a pair of the Keen clipless sandals with Crank Bros, which are also awesome.
