Shoes: Suggestions, please.rachie

I'm trying to find a new pair of road shoes that fit the following qualifications: Very stiff, compatible with Speedplay pedals without a thick adapter plate, and do not have a tongue. I'd prefer shoes that have more of a one piece upper to minimize pressure points on the top of the foot. Does anyone have any suggestions on what's out there that may fit this profile?

I have an older pair I use with Speedplay road pedals. And I have a pair of Carnac mtb shoes I use with Frogs. I think they have newer models that fit your description. Great, durable shoes.
cant suggest one exact pair, but....rrjc5488

Make sure it fits perfectly! MY first shoes I had just slacked off and bought a 60 dollar pair of tri shoes, get shoes that fit snug and you cant move your feet in (more than normal, that is.) If you have a loose fitting shoe, it wont feel right and you'll lose some power.
