    clippless shoes clicking when walking

    I have a pair of Shimano Mt-31 and when I walk they make a clicking noise most of the time it is only heard if I walk on concrete. How would I prevent this as I want to be able to wear them to school and not have to change shoes as I like there style. The shoes are a cross between a boot and a running shoe with a SPD clip.

    You do not wear bike shoes to school. Remove cleats or tape a folded piece of carton on them.

    How can you not love the sound they make?
    The intense sessions of cleat banging with riding buddies, trying to get s rhythm going on, and actually being annoying banging sounds...good times...

    The cleat is suppost to be not sticking out of the sole in the shoes so I can wear them all day without the noise. I've heard that others don't have this problem and I was wondering why I did. The shoes are more of a casual type. here a link to what they look like http://www.rei.com/product/748415

    My shimano's do the same thing, but only on concrete also. I just live with it. I have actually been asked if I've been out riding and it leads to good conversation. Especially with the ladies.

    What kind of shoe do you use? I have been wondering if they are good for tile floors.

    I prefer to switch shoes. Riding shoes get wet and stinky during all-weather commutes.

    Just keep a set of Chuck Taylors in your locker.
    They also pack small enough to fit into your pack if you don't have a locker (college), or you can just tie them to the outside.

    I dont have a locker, but my bag is full so I couldnt carry my riding shoes around all day. I also like the sytle of my riding shoes. KIm think about buying a pair to wear without the cleats just because of their looks.
