One of the most annoying things when cycling, then walking into public places like the coffee shop, is having to carry around an extra pair of shoes. Thankfully, Shimano has come out with some beautiful pairs of clip-ins / SPD's that double as casual shoes. The RT4's have a synthetic leather fabric and laces for a comfortable casual look. Shimano has also included a full length rubber sole in the shoe to increase walkability and comfort, and added 360 degree reflective notes to provide high visibility when in busy, low light environments.
