What shoes, make & model please, did you buy that allow you to walk and clip your cleats to your pedals? How far can you walk in these shoes? Yards? Miles?
I am also shopping for the perfect dual purpose cycle touring shoe. I am leaning toward hiking/trail running shoes. If there is a cycling shoe that works I would like to know what to look for.
I will also carry Keen sandals. Wool socks will turn sandals into all weather footwear.
Bottom line: I need a bike/hike shoe for the GDMBR.
I bought two pairs, actually - one pair are Specialized Cadets - http://www.specialized.com/us/en/ftr/shoes/recreational-fitness-shoes/cadet (I wanted Specialized Tahoe Sport, but they've been discontinued), and the others are Pearl Izumi X-Alp Seek VI - http://shop.pearlizumi.com/product.php?mode=view&pc_id=43&product_id=2328453&outlet=&color_code=021
Not sure how far I can walk in them - I'm assuming regular around-town usage as well as cycling usage. Probably not the best for running/hiking though (despite the fact they're advertised as able to do that).
