Does anyone make Metal Cleats for LOOK Roadbike Pedals? These plastic cleats don't look so good after walking up a steep road.... Just looking for something a little more durable than the Red Cleats I have now. Thanks!
Don't think so, but.muncher

Never seen any, and if they did, they would wear the pedals - think of a few rough metal edges rubbing on your nice looks.

Suggest you get some rubber cleat covers - they are only a couple of dollars, stop your cleats wearing down, and give you some grip to your duck-walk too. Just shove them in your pockets/bag when you are on the bike, and snap them on when you stop - sorted.

Here's a link for Cleat coversDave Hickey

Performance Bike sells them for $9.99.
FWIW, I don't think they are still available...madstork

... but I had a pair of metal (alloy?) LOOK-compatible cleats. Used them during the late '80's / early '90's. Don't remember how they performed, but they were more expensive than the plastic variety. I'm back on plastic these days, and the cleat covers are a good idea.

why not just get SPDs if you're gonna walk a lot?
