Need MTB Shoe Recommendation for Road Frogs(3 posts)

Need MTB Shoe Recommendation for Road FrogsLinus

I like the idea of getting a recessed cleat so I can walk. Speedplay Frogs seem to be the best choice based on reviews I have seen. What are good MTB shoes that work well with Frogs for ROAD use? Any suggestions appreciated.....

my Carnac mtb shoes/Frog combo is so good and solid it made me put Frogs on all my road bikes. Carnacs are stiffer and more supportive than most other mtb shoes - makes a real soild combo. Of course, they have to fit...

As a side note on using mtb shoes with road bikes (and how uncool some people seem to think it is), I did a ride with Andy Hampsten last year and was pleased to see that's what he does, too.

I use Sidi Dominators with Frogs on my MTB.... The Dominator is basically the same shoe as the Genius 3 road shoe plus nasty looking lugs and optional, really mean looking toe spikes (better to scare your fellow riders with). For a MTB shoe they are stiff and Frog cleats fit without trimming (at least on my 44's)..
