Steel-toe SPD cycling shoes

After having my last pair of custom shoes stolen, I decided to upgrade.  These are heavier, but far better for kicking people with.  I'm sure you can relate.

draw a line where the pedal axle should go.
ignore the line and just start hacking a hole in your shoe sole. stretching the rubber makes it easier to cut.

make enough space to fit the cleat and clear the pedal.

remove foam forefoot pad

dump in a load of glue

make a hard-sole leather replacement for the foam, and bolt your cleats to it using T-nuts.  jam it in there.  use epoxy to seal the deal.


SPD steel-toe cycling boots / shoes.  Yaaaargh


go celebrate at the Mezcaleria

La Luchadora de Guadalupe


Drink a Chela and kick back after a day of cutting up shoes.

OSHA demands that workers on certain types of job sites wear steel toe boots. This means you not only have to have them to work on the job. You even have to wear them if you are on the site as a visitor, inspector, or salesman.I find this website for Best Steel Toe Work Boots. You can visit this site.
