    Crank Brothers Mallet - Shoes?
    What shoes are you using w/ your Mallets? I just bought a set and had to grind away several millimeters of sole on my current shoe to get them to clip in easily. Anybody have a set of shoes that will work right out of the box?

    I use 3-4 different types. No sole grinding needed on any though I did use the shims under the cleat.

    No problems with '05 Specialized BG Comp, unaltered (but slightly worn in).

    A pair of 661 Launch shoes and a pair of 661 Tiburons. Didn't need to grind away sole or use shims.

    Sidi Dominators. No shims. No grinding. Works fine.

    Oakley Radar in size 11-shoes are to wide and rubing at the crankarm(XT).
    I needed to shim out the pedal with a washer and the shoe just barely passed.
    With my old smaller shaped NorthWave shoes I had no problems and I now actually use Lake MX101 shoes with zero issues using the Mallets.

    I had to with Performance brand shoes, but not for Diadora or 661 shoes.

    Shimano shoes, shimming and grinding. Guess they are spd friendly. Much easier with regular eggs
