OK, so I love my Shimano mountain bike shoes. BUT, they are a bit too tight and hot in the summer time. What’s a girl to do then? Why, cut out their tongues out (ack!), remove the laces (OK, confession, I took the laces out a long time ago) and there you have it! A refreshing twist to cycling footwear!
I use Crank Brothers egg beater pedals (LOVE THEM!) so all my cycling footwear must be cleat-friendly. This (and my lower-middle-class income bracket) lowers my fashionable shoe choices exponentially. SO, when I can come up with a sassy alternative, I am super-stoked.
Jealous? Of course you are! I’m thinking about punching holes all over them for more airflow also. What do you think?
