    modifying Shimano MTB shoes for a platform pedal?

    I am happy with my Shimano shoes with Shimano pedals, but I want to use them with platform pedals most of the time now. But they can slip off.I was thinking of glueing on something for more friction at the ball of foot area between the cleats to keep it on the pedal better.

    I am sure others have done this,but cant find it with search.

    If you don't mind it being permanent , you could use shoegoo and fill in the area around the cleat are and then mold it to a fairly flat surface.. I have never tried this so I am just throwing out ideas..

    If you like the fit of Shimano shoes, grab some of their flat pedal shoes. They're designed for use with flat pedals.

    Clipless shoes on flat pedals is a worse idea than wearing townie shoes on clipess pedals.

    I agree with this. I would look into the hybrid style clipless shoe, but stay away from the sandal version.
    No fuss with the MUSS
