"These are my first SPD shoes and work fine. Cleat mates well with pedals on which the springs are unscrewed to the minimum setting without any risk of coming unhitched. I take a size 45 in Doc Martin shoes and these are 46 and fit nicely. Only downside I'd that upper edge is a bit noticeable against my ankle but not enough to rub or cause blisters."
XT trekking SPDs are designed for recreational riders who commute and tour. This XT trekking pedal combines SPD mechanism on one side and a stable platform pedal body on the other, you can ride with cleats or normal shoes.
