the cleat doesn't touch the ground when walking.Not when you're walking on smooth surfaces, but have you tried walking on gravel in those shoes?
Thanks! Interestingly, those are one of the pairs I ended up getting. I like them, though they are around a half-size too small. I tried the next size up, but they were a bit loose, so I'll see if I can suffer through the ride with them; hopefully they'll stretch out a bit.I've had two pairs of different Pearl Izumi mtb shoes and had the same fit issues with both. They do stretch a little over time, but I still wish they were just a touch larger. Overall, I've been happy with these as they allow me to still use spd mtb clips, look similar to a regular tennis shoe and walk pretty well. I really like the regular laces with the pocket in the tongue of the shoe to keep the laces out of the chain.
