Shoes without Achilles "protector"?

Postby jlinden » 26 Dec 2004, 1:30pm

Since I hacked off the achilles protectors from my cycling shoes they have felt much better. I have also found I'm not alone with 2 others saying they've done the same.

Surely there must be SPD compatible shoes on the market for people who's achilles is sensitive to the aggressive styling which is the norm?
