    Walking in Clipless Shoes?

    Any tips for walking into stores and such while wearing clipless shoes with SPD cleats? I am worried that the cleat will scratch someone's floors if I go in somewhere for a snack or drink. Are there any covers that can be snapped on or something to protect from scratching?

    I usually just try to walk funny to keep the cleats from crunching on the floor.

    Take 'em off? Or get some medical examiners shoe covers....but then you'd REALLY look odd!

    I have a pair of Specialized Tahoe shoes. They occasionally make noise when they hit gravel, but I've never known them to mar flooring. Wouldn't worry too much, unless it was a friends mahogany floor. Then take them off?

    the cleats on mtb shoes are always recessed, so the only time they ever seem to scrape is when i pick my heel up while walking. my solution is to walk flat-footed.

    I just keep a pair of flip-flops in my bag to wear to and from my rides.
