|Walking on new Shimano or Time cleats?||t-bill|

|Anyone tried these yet? Is there much difference in ability to walk on the new Shimano (SPD-SL) or Time Cafe cleats. I'm not really interested in walking around, but it would be nice to have them be a bit more sticky when you come to a stop (emergency or otherwise) and have to put a foot down.
... no, I can't track stand for five minutes!

|They actually have two pontoons on either side of the rear cam which along with the heel is the contact with the ground. A resin material which has decent traction on various road, pavement and stone step surfaces, even when wet.|

|The SPD-SL cleats are a better design if you're gonna do some minimal walking, as they have a softer rubberised plastic pontoon at either side of the cleat, as well as at the front (If you've seen the SPD-SL cleats it's the yellow section)
The Time's are OK, but still a bit slippy on wet tiles.
